I was extremely anxious for this hogtie kit to finally make it's way to my doorstep! Both because I was excited for it, and because I will admit I was a tad hesitant and anxious to try it out. A problem I have often come across is that many restrain sets are not very... durable, I shall say. I've broken my share of cheap cuffs and torn enough wrist cuffs from the straps. The words 'heavy' and 'duty' gave me a bit more confidence in this set, but I still took it with a grain of salt.
The first thing I did when I got my package was open it up and start to inspect. The cuffs are made from neoprene so the material itself is extremely strong and durable. The straps are thick and strong as well. The holes punched in the straps look like they may stretch out a bit and be a possible weak point eventually, but so far they've shown no signs of wear and tear. My other concern was
the clasps, since I've had hooks and clasps bust before as well. (All it takes is one part of a setup to be weak to break. Some sets are better than others in some ways, but worse in others.) They felt pretty sturdy but I decided to test them and see if these babies help up to expectations. I strapped both of the wrist straps on and give a good, hard, fast yank in opposite directions. On cheaper sets this causes them to completely pull apart. Not so much as a popped stitch on these babies! I was genuinely impressed.
By now I was so excited, and dare I say hopeful, that I couldn't wait for my husband to get home that night and give them a full on test run. Once the set was on I was unable to get out of whatever position I was put into, no matter how much I 'struggled'. Protip: hogtie kits aren't limited to just one position for use! You can always removed cuffs from the base ring and just use it to secure wrists together or just ankles! Plus, they can be used to accomplish a very satisfying version of the classic doggy style.
So if you're looking to invest in a restraint set in general, or looking for something high quality that's well worth the dollar price? This set is for you. I genuinely believe both newbies and veterans would thoroughly enjoy and benefit from this set.
