Our Verdict

The Romp Flip is one of the least expensive wand massagers available. 

But it has weak vibrations, and the extremely flexible neck makes it hard to apply any pressure. So I have a difficult time orgasming with the Romp Flip. It also feels cheaply made – my first Romp Flip broke within the first 5 months of use.

There are several better wand vibrators under $50. Or if you have some wiggle room in the budget, there are several great options that are only slightly more expensive – including two of my favorites, the Magic Wand Mini and Dame Com.

The Romp Flip is a cheap wand vibrator. But it has a flimsy build, weak vibrations, and there are better wands in this price range. The Blush Noje W4, Orion Your New Favorite Wand, and VeDO Wini are all more powerful, durable options with generally better performance.

Build Quality


Build Quality Rating:

3.0

What is it:

Our perception of the wand vibrator’s durability and material quality; whether it feels cheap or sturdy and long-lasting. If we noticed any decline in a wand’s performance over our months of testing, it is accounted for in its Build Quality rating.

When does it matter:

When you want a wand vibrator to last for years. Many wand vibrator manufacturers provide a warranty (usually 1 to 2 years), but a higher quality wand vibrator is more likely to endure after your warranty is expired.

Romp Flip Build Quality

This wand feels cheap. I’m currently on my second Romp Flip – the first one stopped vibrating within the first 5 months of testing it. And while I haven’t experienced issues with its replacement, this toy does not feel like it was made to last.

The plastic construction feels especially thin and delicate. And the extremely flexible neck feels flimsy. I’m worried it will break if you apply much pressure – I suspect this is why my first one stopped working.

At a comparable price, the Blush Noje W4 feels like a higher-quality wand.

What is it:

How wide the range is between the highest and lowest power levels, and whether it has enough power levels that steps between levels aren’t too large.

When does it matter:

A broad power range is usually important because it enables more versatile stimulation. You can start on softer levels when your body isn’t ready for crazy strong power. But when you want more strength, you can turn it up high.

Power vs Frequency Graph:

A graph of each wand vibrator’s power vs frequency across all of its power levels. 

When does it matter:

If you want a detailed look at the full power and frequency characteristics of any particular wand vibrator. This will tell you how strong and how rumbly each setting of the wand feels.

How Strong Is Each Power?

  • Power ≤ 3: Comparable to the vibration strength of smaller vibrators like bullets.
  • Power between 3 and 4.5: Comparable to … 

(Expand Descriptions)

  • Power ≤ 3: Comparable to the vibration strength of smaller vibrators like bullets.
  • Power between 3 and 4.5: Comparable to the vibration strength of mid-sized, non-wand vibrators like the Lelo Mona 2, Lovense Hyphy, Lovense Lush 3, We-Vibe Nova 2, etc.
  • Power between 4.5 and 7: Slightly to moderately more powerful than mid-sized, non-wand vibrators like those mentioned above. 
  • Power ≥ 7: Substantially stronger than other kinds of vibrators. These levels feel extremely powerful.

The Vibration Power scale is defined with a 10.0 given to the most powerful wand vibrator’s highest strength (Currently the Doxy Die Cast). So a vibration power of 8.0 feels 80% as strong as the Doxy Die Cast. A 5.0 feels 50% as strong, and so on.

The Romp Flip is one of my weakest wand vibrators. Its top strength is closer to the middle power levels of my best bullet vibrators. And all 6 intensity levels are so close together that they essentially feel the same.

The Romp Flip is only a good option for people who are very easily overstimulated.

But if you’re looking for power, like people considering wand vibrators usually are, you have a few options.

First – if you’re here because the Romp Flip is budget-friendly, you should check out the Blush Noje W4 instead. This wand is cheaper, but has 3x the vibration strength of the Romp Flip. Or for even more power, the Orion Wand is the strongest under $50.

Blush Noje W4 as Better Wand vs Romp Flip
The Blush Noje W4 (left) – a better, budget-friendly option than the Romp Flip (right)

If you’ve got a bit more budget, you can find several wands under $100 (or less) that provide a more traditional wand vibrator feel.

If you prefer moderate power, the Magic Wand Mini or Dame Com are stronger than my non-wand vibrators (like G-spot vibes, rabbit vibrators, etc.). But they don’t have the extreme upper levels some wands reach. They’re great if you like some strength, but find too much power overwhelming.

Magic Wand Mini Dame Com and Magic Wand Plus
Better mid or high-powered alternatives under $100 (left to right: Magic Wand Mini, Dame Com, Magic Wand Plus)

And if you want those immense upper levels, the Magic Wand Plus is one of the strongest wand vibrators available, and it is the most powerful wand under $100.

Vibrations: Frequency (Rumbliness)


Rumbliness Rating:

6.9

What is it:

How “rumbly” (low frequency) or “buzzy” (high frequency) a wand vibrator feels at each of its power levels. And whether a wand can deliver strong vibrations while remaining reasonably rumbly. Higher scores indicate a “more rumbly” (lower-frequency) wand, since the majority of people prefer rumbliness. But ultimately vibration frequency is a personal preference.

When does it matter:

If you prefer vibrations in a particular part of the frequency spectrum. This is a fast way to see whether one wand’s vibration levels are generally more rumbly or buzzy than another wand’s vibration settings. Since most people prefer rumbly toys, a higher performance score implies a lower-frequency (more rumbly) wand.

Ave Power Per Frequency:

What is it:

A measure that rewards wand vibrators that remain rumbly (low-frequency) while packing good vibration strength. Calculated for a wand using the normalized power / normalized frequency at each power level and taking the median.

When does it matter:

If you want a wand with a good balance of power and rumbliness.

Show All Scores (Click to See):

We rate wands with rumbly vibrations higher than wands with buzzy vibes. The frequency you enjoy is completely a personal preference… But most people prefer vibrations somewhere on the rumbly side of the spectrum, so we rate those higher. 

The Romp Flip’s vibrations feel rumbly, but they are very weak. 

Our rumbliness rating has two components. The first component considers what part of the frequency spectrum the wand’s power levels are in. All 6 of the Romp Flip’s power levels are in the low-frequency, extremely rumbly range.

But our second component takes into account how much power the wand has for its amount of rumbliness. And here the Romp Flip significantly underperforms. In other words, there are wands with a lot more power while remaining just as low-frequency (rumbly).

Most people will want one of these more powerful, rumbly wands. 

Dame Com vs Romp Flip - Vibration Power vs Frequency Graph

For instance, the Dame Com’s frequencies range from 36 Hz (extremely rumbly) on low power to 56 Hz (extremely rumbly) on high power. This is nearly identical to the Romp Flip’s frequency range, but the Dame Com has about 3 times the vibration strength. It’s one of my favorite rumbly wand vibrators.

Comfort & Ease Of Use


Comfort & Ease of Use Rating:

7.0

What is it:

How comfortable the wand is to hold and press against your body. As well as how easy it is to press the buttons, leverage the wand for good pressure, and maneuver it to apply the stimulation where and how you want it. This rating also includes how easy the wand is to clean. Ratings are based primarily on solo use – I cover use during partnered sex here.

When does it matter:

If you are easily distracted by subtle discomforts such as feeling the vibrations in your hands, slight wrist strain, or an awkward grip on the handle. It also matters if you want a wand that’s easy to use for a wide variety of stimulation or for long periods of time.

These wands have excellent performance in this category and others. We only include wands we recommend overall, excluding wands that perform well here but not in other areas.

Waterproof Rating:

IPX7

What is it:

The waterproof rating of the wand vibrator – IPX7, IPX6, or No Rating

When does it matter:

When you plan to use your wand vibrator in the shower or want simpler cleaning.

  • IPX7 (Submersible): Wands with this rating are considered “waterproof.” You can submerge them in water up to a meter deep for up to 30 minutes. So you can use them in the bath and cleaning is easy.
  • IPX6 (Splashproof): Wands with this rating can resist high-pressure, heavy sprays of water, but should not be fully submerged. This means you can use them in the shower (but not submerged in a bath). You can also clean them under a sink faucet without worry.
  • No Rating: These wands do not have a waterproof rating. You should not use them in the shower, and you must be careful to keep water away from electronic components when cleaning them .

While the Romp Flip isn’t uncomfortable, it’s not as easy to use as many of my wand vibrators.

It only has a one-button to control the vibrations. This means you’ll need to cycle through the vibration power levels – you cannot move up and down. The button is also positioned in a way that I need to shift my hand when I want to adjust the power.

And I just find it a little awkward to hold due to the tapering handle. The material is less grippy than I usually like, and the handle is surprisingly wide for how short the wand is. Overall it just makes it feel strange in my hand.

But the small head size and flexible neck help the Romp Flip feel comfortable against my body. However, since the neck is so flexible, it also diminishes the pressure you can apply. And since the vibes are weak, I need to press this wand firmly to my vulva.

If you like the size of the Romp Flip there are comparable options with better overall performance. On a tight budget, I’d consider the Blush Noje W4. It’s a touch smaller, very easy to maneuver and use, and has better vibrations.

If you’ve got a bit more budget, the Magic Wand Mini is another compact wand and one of my personal favorites. It has a better power range, good rumbliness, and is very comfy and easy to use.

Even though the Romp Flip is small, I don’t enjoy it during sex – mostly because it’s so dang weak!

A wand with this little power becomes an inconvenience during sex. I hardly notice the vibrations, so I’m stuck holding a wand with none of the benefits. And since the Flip’s neck is so flexible, the vibrations feel even less impactful without the ability to apply pressure.

Again – the Blush Noje W4 is a more powerful, inexpensive wand that’s very easy to use during sex. It’s a better option if you need to stick in the Romp Flip’s price range.

But if you can increase your budget a bit, the Magic Wand Mini is only about $30 more and works extremely well during sex. It’s small in size to easily fit in tight spaces. It has a plush head to avoid uncomfortable pressure on your pubic bone. And it has power buttons that allow you to toggle up or down!

I test my wands with my two wand-compatible mounts from Liberator – the Axis and Wanda.

The Wanda is designed to be straddled. It holds the wand upright at a slight angle. You can sit on the mount and lean in for stimulation. Or you can bend over the top of it. 

The Romp Flip fits pretty well in this mount. Though, the low power means it still provides minimal stimulation.

And unfortunately, it does not really work at all with the Axis mount. 

The Axis is designed for you to lie across the mount on your stomach. It holds the wand out to the side at a slight upward angle between your legs. But the Romp Flip’s is too small and too weak for it. I don’t get any clit stimulation when it’s held in the Liberator Axis.

Wand In Use with Axis Overlay
My typical position when using the Liberator Axis mount (demonstrated with BMS PalmPower Extreme)

If mount use is important to you, it’s best to get a medium-sized wand. And you may have to increase your budget a bit. 

One of my favorites to use with a mount is the Dame Com. This wand is a bit more expensive than the Romp Flip, but still below $100. It’s one of the most cost-effective wands that performs really well with mounts.

The Romp lasts for about 75 minutes continuously running on high power. This is one of the shortest battery lives of the wands we’ve tested. And it’s especially short considering the Romp Flip’s soft vibrations don’t use as much power as stronger wands.

The cheaper Blush Noje W4 lasts for about 85 minutes on high. While not much longer, the power is substantially stronger.
