After first unpacking The Napoleon, it needed some TLC, just like
they do to remain in good condition. After a few rounds of deep
conditioning, the falls are smooth and supple once more. Tight, smooth
plaiting on the handle, nicely tied knots, and a sturdy loop. A couple of
the falls have a very slight twist in them. Most of it is easily taken
care of with conditioning and proper storage. What may remain doesn't hurt
the functionality of the flogger.
I love the balance and weight of this flogger. The handle is slightly
thicker than The Thumper. It's still not too thick for smaller hands, but
it gives it a great feel in the palm. For me (at 5' 6") it's great if I
want to be closer to a partner, take a break from a longer, heavier
flogger, or -as Papa Tony mentioned- flog a chest.
