Swan Maximum Bullet Review – 1 Amazing Addition + Adjustable Speed!!!

What every bullet vibrator should dream to be. Swan Maximum Bullet is insanely good. “Squirting-level good,” as I had to wash my waterproof blanket after first use.

The Maximum Bullet’s got 1 feature that outshines every other bullet vibe for me: Seriously easier grip, since a stretchy silicone ring bonds it to my first two fingers.

Plus, my favorite: Fully adjustable control. I can tailor its rumbly vibration to my clitoris’ taste. So, this Swan bullet vibrator is simple to fit into sex — *plus* my boyfriend ended up loving its hands-free power for speedy penis orgasms. Our Swan Maximum Bullet tests revealed:

The Run-Down:

Powerful bullet vibrator with soft cuff for grip-free play. Fully adjustable intensity. Rumbly & quiet vibration. My fave mini-vibrator ever.

My Review Criteria

All body-safe, zero BS. I only recommend body-safe toys, no bullshit and no paid promos. If I wouldn’t give a toy to a close friend, then I won’t recommend it to you, either. I’ve tested over 750 vibrators, 500 dildos, and 120 butt plugs (and an array of cock rings, kink gear, and lubes!). Everyone’s preferences vary, so I rate vibrating toys by 1. power level and 2. rumbliness; and always describe how my personal tastes color my experience.

My Experience with Swan Maximum Bullet

I first pulled the Maximum Bullet vibe out of its box, and needed to charge it up. Then, its motor kicked to life in a way where I was immediately like, “Oooh yeah, this is a good one!!!”

I’m also swooning over sapphire: the deep blue Swan Maximum Bullet. It’s pretty in pink too, that’s the other color option; but OMG this is soooo damn blue, I love it.

Maximum Bullet tests ensued, of course. Many vibrator tests with this one: a couple times a day, you know, just to be thorough. Seriously, though: I wasn’t expecting to like it this much, because I’m into wider vibrators (G-spotters, wands) clitorally.

This is the best “bullet” or “lipstick” style vibrator I’ve ever owned, hands-down.

I love the “small but not too small size,” and the roundness of the Swan Maximum Bullet. It does have a pointed tip if you like to press hard against the clitoris:

But this Swan bullet’s lipstick-cutout is never jabby. It’s curved in a very ergonomic way, for rubbing around the clitoris (and the labia too, if you like that: I do!). It feels less abrasive to “rub off” on than the more-abrupt lipstick tip of Blush’s Power Vibes (formerly known as “Exposed Nocturnal Bullet“)—a vibrator motor that is barely stronger than the Swan Maximum Bullet, yet has less speed choices (it’s a lot buzzier vibration, too) and more awkward buttons (they’re hard to press inward!). The Max. Bullet feels tons more luxury-level than those Blush vibrators.

I love this feature so much: the “Comfy Cuff” is super useful. It’s a squeezable, stretchable silicone that fits great over my first and second fingers. So the Swan Maximum Bullet is easier to rub up and down my clit and NOT lose my grip. My fingertips can relax, too, versus gripping harder around other bullet vibrators to guide them.

Incremental Speed Control is the BEST vibration system. I love it. BMS pioneered this “press & hold” (then release when you’re at a good intensity for you) system, and it’s rare among all vibrators.

It fixes my biggest problem with normal vibrators: I’m enjoying function #1 (the lowest steady speed), but then I want more. But, when I press the button to reach vibration function #2, it gets too damn strong. I have to wait a minute, while being overstimulated, till I can really enjoy it (if ever; sometimes the jumps-up are just so much, they put me off entirely).

Swan Maximum Bullet is permanently installed as part of my shower-time now, the past weeks; also ever-present by my bed. Going forward, this lil vibrator will remain in my favorites basket, right next to my bed.

So yeah, I think it’s the best mini-vibe ever. But: Is is going to surpass the Pillow Talk Sassy as *my* all-time favorite vibrator? Unlikely. Because it’s not both a G-spotter and a clitoral sex toy, and I do need my G-spot stimulation for peak masturbation. But hey, not everyone does—some people really only need clitoral stimulation—and the Swan Maximum Bullet is clitorally awesome. Better yet: pair the two. 🥳 Holy moly, the Max. Bullet is so easy to turn sideways against my clit (with the silicone grip!) while I’m jerking…in with the P.T. Sassy. Fantastic.

Maximum Bullet as a Cock ring + Penis Vibrator

My boyfriend came so fast the first time we tried this, I was like whutttt. He likes some super-soft silicone penis masturbators, but hasn’t gone in for vibration before this. So I wasn’t expecting much result when I anchored the Maximum Bullet parallel to his penis, resting against its backside (balls-side), with the “comfy cuff” as a cock-ring high up.

Swan Maximum Bullet as penis vibrator

The Swan Maximum bullet was now a hands-free frenulum vibrator. He’s cut, but still apparently has a lotta feeling in that area: 180-degrees opposite his coronal ridge, where foreskin would naturally connect in. He was dripping in less than 30 seconds. I’d turned the Maximum Bullet about halfway up its intensity range, and he came in two minutes flat. He said it was like the orgasm was pulled out of him,

…and since then, we’ve started on the lowest possible intensity with the Max. Bullet, so he can enjoy more gradual warmup before cumming. This thing is very strong for him & his cock. And, he can get stimulation while doing other acts, like finger-banging me!

Vibration Functions & Intensity

Swan Maximum Bullet has 1 steady vibration function that’s 100% adjustable:

In practice, that’s about a dozen distintly discernible strength-levels within the Incremental Speed range. (See all vibrators with this adjustable control, here: It’s a feature unique to BMS Factory / Swan products.)

I rate the Swan Maximum Bullet as ranging from from 3.75 to 7.0 / 10 power (low speed to high speed); see that compared to other strong bullet vibrators here. Since bullet vibes are smaller, they can’t pack the power of a big-motored Magic Wand, etc.

Swan Maximum bullet vs We-Vibe Tango X vibrators
Top: Tango X in blue; Bottom: Max. Bullet in pink.

That’s slightly stronger than the “gold-standard” bullet vibrator, the We-Vibe Tango (X); and the Max. Bullet has a reverberating rumble, too. When using both vibrators on top power, I find I feel the Swan Maximum Bullet a lot better through 2 layers of clothing (because, you know, sometimes you might find yourself masturbating in a hurry?!).

For me, the Swan Max. Bullet just has more *rev* vs. the Tango—and a bit better range, starting lower and ending stronger.

Other Features

Travel Lock & Storage Pouch

The travel lock makes the Maximum Bullet a more discreet vibrator while traveling. To either lock or unlock, press down both arrow buttons at the same time, for 3 seconds. The vibrator will buzz twice to indicate the travel-lock changeover has occurred.

Charging & Battery Life

Charge your Maximum Bullet first: Mine arrived with no factory charge. 2 hours of charging is fine. It has a good battery life: 3 hours 49 minutes on the low end of the speed range, or 1 hour 57 minutes on full power all the way. (As with all rechargeable vibrators, running the higher vibration levels drains the battery faster.)

It’s a magnetic charger, so the Maximum Bullet will remain waterproof submersible over time. The magnetic prongs clip right onto the end of the vibrator.

Cleaning & Care

Wash it in soap and water. Normal hand soap, for maybe 30 seconds in the sink after use.

If you’ve gotten luuuube [I suggest Sliquid H2O] on the metallic matte finish, you may need to rub those specific areas a little harder. The matte finish is functionally nonporous just like the silicone cuff is.

“Comfy Cuff” Size & Silicone

The silicone sleeve, a.k.a. Comfy Cuff, provided with the Maximum Bullet is stretchy. That’s awesome because it snugs the bullet vibe up over my first and second fingers, and feels really comfortable.

Swan Maximum bullet vibrator review

It’s almost as soft as a super-soft silicone cock ring! The Maximum Bullet’s silicone cuff measures in the 1 to 2A Shore range—quite soft. That’s close to the super-soft Oxballs Grunt cock&balls ring (0.5A / 00-50).

Volume

It’s discreet enough in terms of volume, you can’t hear it from the next room, but not *the quietest* because strong vibrators are never, ever the quietest ones. Measured from a foot away, this Swan vibrator is 28 to 40 decibels (low to high speed).

Compare that to me: I apparently create bursts of up to 72 decibels volume when orgasming on the Swan Maximum Bullet. 😆

How to Operate – Buttons

Swan Maximum Bullet has two control buttons, a departure from other BMS Factory vibes with Incremental Speed Control:1

  • Press either arrow button to power on.
  • Press and hold down the bigger arrow to increase power.
  • Remove your finger from the button when you like the vibration intensity.
  • Press & hold again if you’re only partway through the speed range, and want more power as you get warmed up & going strong.
  • Press the smaller arrow button to power off.

The adjustable press-&-hold control functions like the scroll-wheel that some people add to their Magic Wand, so their options are not limited. Except this is a button built into the Swan Maximum Bullet, you don’t have to buy extra stuff.

The only way you might mess up with the Maximum Bullet is by hitting the small arrow button and turning it off accidentally. I’m sure the size difference between the two buttons was carefully engineered (the big arrow sticks out more, too), and I have not had an issue telling the difference.

Recap & Ranking

Swan Maximum Bullet is so brilliant, I struggled to find negatives. It will be orgasmic clitorally if you don’t need an extreme: Because the Max. Bullet’s vibration is rumbly & strong, but neither super-gentle nor crazy-overpowering. And it’s compact, neither very-focused nor very-girthy.

For me, it’s much better than the renowned We-Vibe Tango because of the Swan Maximum Bullet’s (1) adjustable intensity control, and (2) Comfy Cuff sleeve. The stretchy-soft silicone loop wraps around my fingers, lets me rub the Max. Bullet around my clit / up & down my vulva without needing to hold on tight. It makes the Max. Bullet more accessible; and easier if I’m holding this rumbly vibe clitorally while I thrust a dildo or a Pillow Talk Sassy, for dual stimulation.

Plus, my boyfriend has had the fastest frenulum (penis) orgasms ever while wearing the “comfy cuff” as a ring, holding the Maximum Bullet against the back of his shaft — and he didn’t know he liked penis vibrators, before this!

It’s close to perfect. I don’t say that about vibrators often—indeed, almost never.2 If you like easy clitoral stimulation, or if you have a partner you want to stimulate during sex, the Max. Bullet is awesome.

NOTE

  1. I assume this new system was designed so that new users don’t accidentally power off the vibrator when trying to power up. It takes about 3 sessions to get adjusted to the Pillow Talk Sassy’s single Incremental Control button, in my experience.
  2. We-Vibe Nova 2 is as close to perfect as I think is possible in a rabbit vibrator. And while the Pillow Sassy is next-to-perfect for me, I get that some people don’t love G-spot vibration in general, or need a lot of G-spot pressure (whereas Sassy is slightly flexible, not rock-hard like the Pure Wand).

    • Hi!! Bullet holes do vary some in size depending on the toy maker, so I don’t want to say it’ll fit in all bullet vibrator holes. But, I can get the Maximum Bullet to fit inside a SquarePegHole (an option in SquarePegToys’ realistic dildos), the “Vac-U-Hole” as Hankey’s Toys calls it if I add a bit of lubricant around that hole, and in a Doc Johnson silicone dildo with Vac-U-Lock hole.
