is helmed by none other than Greg Alves, the man known for putting Metro on the map, starting up Zero Tolerance
and more recently fighting asshat pirates successfully, winning a
multimillion dollar judgement. So, why does Greg think he can carve
out a niche in an ultra competitive market dominated by the likes of
Doc Johnson, Adam & Eve, TopCo, and a few others? First, he teamed
up with equally well known Gregg Alan, a guy you may know as the head
honcho at Diabolic
(another favorite production company of mine) and the two took a
different approach. Rather than go cheap with their toys, they decided
to take it slow and easy, using high end materials and quality testing
practices, resulting in toys like the Waterproof Diamante
in their Citron Edition line.
Measuring in at slightly over 8" tall (7" of insertable shaft), it was one of the thicker toys I've tested;
built for fluffy sized gals who enjoy thickness more. One of the first observations made about this one by Nadine was how it was shaped somewhat like a bowling pin, albeit a small one. The black device managed to impress her right away since it had a powerful vibration but the kind of think shaft many other ladies just don't like (making its color somewhat appropriate). The impressive gift packaging was still present too, a plain white sleeve
surrounding a nice purple metal case with black foam inside, hinges holding the top
onto the body. I cannot stress enough how popular these cases are when giving presents out to special friends, the cheesy disposable plastic cases most toys come in not only environmentally unsound but also less suitable for the upcoming holiday season.

The Waterproof Diamante
AA batteries and unlike those lesser releases by competitors, this
device provided the vibrations right at the top of the toy where it counts, not weakened by the bullet stuck in the back as is standard. The first setting was light, the
second a modest upgrade, and the third, well, watch out as it's really
strong and Nadine) fell in love with it The jelly coated
toy also had substantial curves on it that stretched her out more than most such toys, even working sans batteries in a pinch. This simple yet elegant toy really delivered the goods
and at the highest setting, drained the batteries faster than usual.
The quality of the toy showed here as well, my impression that it will last longer than some of the nearly disposable toys I've encountered in the past.
Bet on black!
After she left, I tested it to check the waterproof nature of the device
and it passed with flying colors, the control on the bottom of the toy
being a simple push button approach I wish others would take (over
those all too often clunky controls). The "O" ring kept water from
destroying the electronics and it was quite easy to clean, making it Highly Recommended
on all fronts. Nadine would have rated this as an Xcritic Pick but I felt it needed something more substantial, the cost of this series higher than many of the others from what I've found online. Still, if you like bigger toys, you are in for a treat this time, well on the road to challenging Belladonna if you catch my drift.
For those of you that are socially conscious, the Waterproof Diamante
is made in China for those who care
but you'll want to stock up on batteries with this baby as it served to demonstrate anal action doesn't always mean a large toy to push your limits in the backdoor. The simple fact is, such a toy is best used as a supplement for others depending on what you want to stimulate but given the wealth of nerve endings in the backside of most people, this one was well worth picking up for repeated use.

it mentions it is RoHS compliant which essentially means the device is
free of many specific health hazard chemicals, this from the RoHS
website in the EU:
The definition and aim of the RoHS directive is quite simple. The RoHS
directive aims to restrict certain dangerous substances commonly used
in electronic and electronic equipment. Any RoHS compliant component is
tested for the presence of Lead (Pb), Cadmium (Cd), Mercury (Hg),
Hexavalent chromium (Hex-Cr), Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and
Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE). For Cadmium and Hexavalent
chromium, there must be less than 0.01% of the substance by weight at
raw homogeneous materials level. For Lead, PBB, and PBDE, there must be
no more than 0.1% of the material, when calculated by weight at raw
homogeneous materials. Any RoHS compliant component must have 100 ppm
or less of mercury and the mercury must not have been intentionally
added to the component. In the EU, some military and medical equipment
are exempt from RoHS compliance.
