Heyo! I know there are about 1547 threads about this kind of stuff already, but I always find it difficult to find precise answers to my particular questions, so here goes!
I’ve had the Handy for ~6 months now and its hands down the best stroker-adjacent toy I’ve purchased. But with some disposable income available and a desire to explore & review my options, I’ve started looking at some other products, specifically the OSR/SR6, and to a lesser degree the syncbot. (while I’d love to hear some user reviews of the latter, this topic was mostly started for the former)
Main questions are:
Intensity comparisons to the Handy, specifically in terms of ‘speed to stroke length’. While the Handy has definitely helped me recovers somewhat from DGS, I’m still someone who really likes high-intensity stimulation. And while the Handy can certainly get fairly up there, I’m someone that really prefers longer strokes, and I feel like this is kind of where the Handy suffers the most. I don’t really like the sensation of vibration-style stimulation, so a lot of the short, rapid “strokes” in more ‘intense’ funscripts end up taking me out of it more than anything. Tldr: I’d like something that can do full, or at least somewhat long strokes at a speed higher than the Handy. Is this something the SR6 manages well? Additionally if not, does the multi-axis support give it enough uniqueness to be more intense in different ways?
Ease of maintenance for someone who is not an engineer? I am at best, a tech enthusiast and can manage some shoddy soldering when something absolutely needs fixing. A few things I’ve seen make it seem like there’s a lot of required maintenance if you plan to use these consistently, doubly so if I’m looking for higher intensity as the above question. Is this a huge issue if I’m buying one premade from somewhere like yourhobbiescustomized?
2.5. Durability with consistent use is a bit of a worry, but I may just be rewording question 2. Should I be worried about things breaking and having to buy higher quality/more expensive parts to keep up with what I’m looking for even if I buy something premade?
That’s it for now, I think! Sorry about the unnecessarily wordy questions, but I’ll greatly appreciate any feedback!
