My partner and I used this crop three times. The first time the handle fell off but we fixed it with glue; no big deal. Second time was fine. Third time the heart actually tore away from where it was attached to the handle (as in tore, not fell out, ripped in two)and flew across the room. No glue is going to fix it now. I'd not recommend this to anyone who actually wanted to use it. If you're looking for a prop or maybe a little bit of experimentation then go ahead. As for me I'll be looking for a bit better quality in the future.
I love this crop its very nice for the price and leaves a nice mark ;) the handle is made well and I can tell that sooner or later we may have to glue the heart back together but that is not going to be for awhile. Overall, I LOVE this crop.
This thing broke after two play sessions, but it does make for a nasty cane afterwards. Not worth the money though.
