WandA's review of The Gripper Ultimate Stroker Ripple Grip
Sorry! This product has been discontinued.
Please scroll down to see alternative products.
An incredibly tight and firm stroker for men that like plenty of pressure. The soft, flesh-feel material yields to your desires while tightly caressing and sucking with every stroke. Filled with deep ribs and head-teasing nodules for an explosive finish.
Made from PureSkin material, this stroker is one of the most realistic yet extraordinary strokers on the market. The combination of deep ribbing, waves, curves and nodules in the inner tunnel and the realistic flesh-like materials give better-than-real sensations that you'll want to experience again and again.
The tight tunnel measures 7 inches in length with a curvature designed to closely mimic a real woman. Every inch of the inside is textured with deliciously deep ridges to stimulate your shaft while the very end is filled with deeply pleasurable nodules and finer ribs that stimulate the head and frenulum while the internal suction sends you to ecstasy.
The outter tunnel is coloured grey while the entrance is a full, puffy pair of pussy lips with inner labia and clitoris. The perfect partner to all of your darkest fantasies.
There is a small opening of the tunnel to assist cleaning. Suction can be varied by covering this whole partially or fully during use.

Mid-range for Mid-price
Reviewed: 31 May 2011 by WandA, a Straight Engaged Male
As expected again, parcels direct from LH arrive in under 24 hours. Before receiving this product I expected it to be a mid-range stroker, befitting of its mid-range price. And this is what I did receive.
It certainly doesn't compete with the top of the scale, the Tengas and Fleshlights, and it is better than some of the worst strokers I've used on the very budget scale. What makes this product mid-range is the material this toy is made from, many cheaper strokers all use horrendous plastic jelly materials that are too inflexible, smelly and easy to break. However even if this isn't made from the material in question it is still light years away from the fantastically soft materials used in the high end toys.
So what benefits does this stroker offer over the cheap rubbish of the budget toys? Not a lot in my opinion, although it is certainly made from a better material there is a failure to utilise it well in this product.
The stroker is made from two different varieties of the same material, one is the hard grey outer part and the other the softer pink inner and vulva. I think the difference is great for the toy as it holds its structure well during use and unlike some other toys it then need not have a hard case that is less comfortable to hold. The pink material feels lifelike externally and feels rather good when pressed deep but it lacks the softness of a real vagina when felt on the inside and this material is way too hard to have anything more than a little resemblance to the internals of a lady, naturally this is disappointing.
I found this element a huge let down for the toy, by being slightly too hard it makes things slightly uncomfortable, especially during orgasm. This also isn't helped by the relatively small entrance hole given the lack of 'stretch' in the entrance.
During use this toy wasn't great. As mentioned, the entrance and canal are too small and this makes it too intense. I think the fact that it is too intense is, in part, down to the rather dull texture inside. The texture is mostly a dull screw-like thread that lacks decent spacing between each ridge/bump providing a vibrately buzz rather than soft caress (think running a stick over railings or fingers over a radiator for that 'vibratey buzz'). I was further unimpressed by this toy because the rather rubbish texture is wonky and exits the toy a good 30 degrees off centre, this wouldn't be a problem if the thread then wasn't only about 4mm from breaking through at one particular point in my particular product. Although the poor build quality is unforgivable it may be the case that as an uncircumcised male in the top end of average for girth this product just may not fit me rather than being a poor product. I did find the ridges too intense especially under my glans and exposed foreskin so this may suit men less sensitive than me there, after all it is likely made for the American market.
As for looks, yeah, it's OK. Grey will never be a colour that stands out but it looks inoffensive. The packaging was the usual tat, seductive/slutty lady in lingerie *obviously* gagging for it and 100% *exactly* like this toy...
One particular highlight was the ease of gripping the toy. As previously mentioned this is down to the soft material but this is aided by the great grippy design that is a series of nodule like thinks that makes keeping a grip easy and comfortable.
And now for the important bit, what to do at 2am after you've just finished watching the Babeland phone-in XXXHORNTV preview, errr just me then? Anyway, cleaning.
There is good news and bad news concerning this toy. Good news: Cleaning is a doddle (what ever one of them is) and it can just be rinsed though by popping the tap in it. Bad news: Drying. It doesn't. Because it's so tight and cannot be reversed the middle remains wet unless dried in some way akin to flossing. The second time I went to use this toy I was confronted with it smelling slightly damp from the insides that remain an utter bitch to dry successfully.
In conclusion this toy has proved what I pretty much expected, that in the male sex toy business you almost always get what you pay for. I'd recommend trying a Tenga or Fleshlight (especially the cans), and failing that buy a cheap one now and save up. Unfortunately this toy fills a niche that shouldn't even be there. It offers little 'value added' on the budget ranges and falls way short of the top stuff.
- Material. Grip grooves. The 'vulva' feels realistic. Looks inoffensive.
- Too intense/hard. Questionable build. Unimaginative screwlike texture. Too tight. Doesn't dry well.
- Bottom line
- Save money on a cheaper stroker or splash out on a higher end piece.
