Fleshlight Quickshot Launch Review v2 [2021]: After 3 Month Testing

In this quickshot launch review (v2) we share results after our hands-on test & share how it compares vs universal launch & other top machines in 2021:

Not so long ago, a hands-free stroker meant getting a handjob from a partner. 

But now, we have technology. 

So if you like Fleshlights but wish there was a way to automate the process, you’re in the right place. 

The Quickshot Launch by Fleshlight is supposed to crank up your Quickshot game. But is it the next big step in automatic stroking technology? And how does it compare to the similarly designed Universal Launch or the high-tech and interactive Kiiroo Keon?

Stick around to find out how it compares, but first we’ll see who the Quickshot Launch is good for and who might be better off with something else. 

TL;DR

The Good

You can change the stroke speed, length, and even position to get the perfect sensation whenever you want it!

It has a decent battery life and works while charging, and the phone mount means you can conveniently watch porn while working on the controls.

The Not So Good

There’s no interactive app – it’s all manually controlled, so if you want something that syncs with your favorite videos, this ain’t it. It also only works with Quickshot sleeves, which are great but don’t suit everyone’s tastes. And if you happen to “launch” cum a long distance, you might get some on your mounted phone. 

The Bottom Line

If you want Bluetooth connectivity for interactive porn, if you just plain don’t like Quickshots, or if you want something quiet and discreet, it’s not gonna be your thing.

If you love Quickshots and want something that feels like a blowjob you control, then welcome to the future of sex machines! 

Quickshot Launch is for you if:

  • You want a blowjob machine that works
  • You have a Quickshot (or three) and prefer them to full-size Fleshlights
  • You want a blowjob machine that you can clean easily

Quickshot Launch might not be for you if:

  • You’re not a fan of the Quickshot range
  • You’re paranoid about ejaculating on your phone
  • You want a blowjob machine with interactive features (eg. Bluetooth, porn scripts)

Quickshot Launch: My First Impressions

The first thing I thought looking at the box was “wow, it’s big”. It’s smaller than the Universal Launch but it’s still not a discreet toy. Maybe you could disguise it as some kind of gaming gadget if you want to keep it a secret. 

Inside the box, you get your usual documents, a charging cable, a universal smartphone mount, and the Launch itself.

There are also two other mounts included in the package: a magnetic mount as well as the wider mount.  

Taking it out, I was surprised at how light it was. If your hands get tired of holding those heavy masturbators, then this might be easier. The handles are ergonomic and easy to… well, handle. 

Compared to older automatic strokers, the Quickshot feels like a design improvement. It’s lighter, easier to hold on to, and better looking than those unwieldy barrel-shaped strokers. 

But of course, looks aren’t everything. 

On to the important bits.

What About The Design?

The Quickshot Launch is made of ABS plastic along with a bunch of electronic stuff. It doesn’t feel as sturdy as the Universal Launch, so if you’re clumsy and drop things all the time then be careful with it. 

As for the looks… Well, it looks like a rocket platform, doesn’t it? That must be where the Launch name comes from.

It’s like something out of a 60’s sci-fi show – clunky, glossy, and still has buttons instead of a touchscreen. It might not be everyone’s style, but I dig it. 

Looks aside, there is one design issue that sticks out. The FL Quickshots are all open-ended on both sides. And the phone mount is directly above where your penis goes. 

There’s a potential for friendly fire. You know, shooting on your phone if you happen to be a long-distance gunner. It’s easy enough to solve with a well-placed paper towel or something but it still made me think, isn’t there an easy solution to this? 

It’s probably not going to be a problem regularly unless you’re packing volcanic power, but if you are, be aware. 


Fleshlight Quickshot Launch: Key Functionality

Let’s do a little experiment. 

Try and jerk your hand up and down four times a second. 

Can you do it? Even close? 

I think I can manage it, but only for about 10 seconds before my forearm feels like it’s going to fall off. 

Well, the Quickshot Launch can jerk you at that speed… for an hour. Longer, if you keep it plugged into the wall.

That’s INSANE. I couldn’t last more than four minutes at that speed. 

It can also stroke much slower, of course. Anywhere from a lazy drunk blowjob speed all the way up to what I call a VELVET JACKHAMMER. Sounds like a name for a cocktail, doesn’t it? 

The QS Launch also has a universal smartphone mount at the top, so you can fit your phone to it and slap on your favorite porn. 

Sadly, it’s not interactive. There’s no Bluetooth connectivity or smartphone app here; all of the controls require you to press a button. 

Still, being able to hook up your phone for easy porn watching is a neat feature that I appreciate, so no complaints from me. 

 

Finally, on our list of wondrous additions, we have targeted pleasure zones. You can choose whether to target your base, shaft, or tip, and the Launch will do the rest, moving further up or down. 

I love this because if you jerk the same spot constantly, it can start to get boring. 

But by targeting a different zone and changing the stroke speed or length, you can get any kind of sensation you might want from a stroker! 


How To Set Up Quickshot Launch

Of course, you have to charge it right out of the box. It should take about 90 minutes to complete one full charge, giving you up to 60 minutes of a fun time. 

You have to leave it to fully charge the first time, after that you can be more flexible with your battery use.

Note: Fleshlight recommends that you try not to drain the battery completely all the time. I’m not an electrician, but I trust them to know how to look after their products. 

Once it’s charged, slot in your phone if you want to watch something hot and fit in your Quickshot sleeve. Turn it clockwise and check that it doesn’t move around when you jiggle it.

And boom! You’re ready to go. 

Press the power button on the right side to get it started, then use the buttons on the handles to change the settings. The left button under your thumb is to control the stroke length, right is for speed. There’s a button on the back left side to change position, too. 

It kind of feels like a tutorial to a video game doesn’t it. Now get out there, soldier! 


Quickshot Launch In Use

It’s easy to get set up and going, which is always a big plus. I basically had to just put my Quickshot in (Riley Reid) and put up my phone, and it was ready to go. 

A lot of blowjob machines are more fiddly, either because of Bluetooth and apps to work out (eg. the Lovense Max) or just because there are a bunch of cables to slot into place (like the Venus for Men). 

It also takes a fair amount of lube. A good rule of thumb is to take whatever you would use if you were going to use a Quickshot normally, then double it. Apply to yourself and the sleeve. 

I’m a bit of a control freak in the sheets, so I adore the manual controls and getting it to stroke me perfectly at every moment. 

Who cares that it doesn’t sync up with the porn I’m watching when I can get it to do exactly what I want?

It feels like getting an excellent blowjob from someone who never gets tired. For an hour, at least, and let’s be honest that’s longer than I can last with this thing anyway. 

And here’s a pro tip to make it even better: you can actually use it with two Quickshots at once. 

Fleshlight sells a connector that allows you to put two Quickshots together to use at the same time. This basically makes it a longer sleeve with more varied textures for double the fun! 

You can mix and match them easily to find your favorite combinations and experiment around. 


The Quickshots – Which One To Get? 

At the moment, there are three Quickshots in total, all with their own quirks. They’re all 4.4 inches long and transparent, so you can see what’s going on inside. Let’s see which one is right for you: 

Pulse

This is like the standard model. It’s smooth and ultra-soft on the inside, with ridges to mimic a real vagina. It’s a great Quickshot to start with, but if you’re used to the grooves, bumps, and twists of other Fleshlight textures, you might not find it stimulating enough. 

Riley Reid

Has both a lady and a butt orifice for double the fun. The internal textures are bold and highly stimulating. If you crave maximum sensation, then this is the one for you. 

Vantage

The twisting, reverse corkscrew-like texture is hypnotic in motion. This is my favorite one to use with the Launch because the beautiful twisting feeling feels the most blowjob-like. 


How To Clean Your Quickshot Launch

The Quickshots themselves are the easiest Fleshlights to clean. Since they’re open-ended, you normally don’t finish inside them, so you can clean them out with just a standard wash and dry. 

The Launch shouldn’t give you much trouble either. The only issue I can see is if you shoot off like a pornstar! Then you’ll probably have to wipe down the Launch with a damp cloth or whatever you normally use. 

PRO TIP: The Launch isn’t waterproof at all, so be careful when you clean it not to get any water in the exposed electronics. Actually, you should also try to be careful where you jizz! 

And here’s what one user had to say about the Quickshot Launch:

All things said, for the price I’m very happy with it. Not an everyday use thing for me by any means but it’s something I break out if i’m in the mood and I’m happy to have it around. Who doesn’t love a hand/blowjob robot tucked away in your house?

The Quickshot Launch: Price & Where To Get One 

You can pick up your Quickshot Launch along with any other Fleshlight-related product you might want from Fleshlight’s website. As usual, it’s better to get one directly from the manufacturer when possible so you’re sure you’re getting what you paid for. 

And speaking of paying the Quickshot Launch costs about $200 for the basic Launch. You also have the option to add a Quickshot to go with your Launch at a lower package price. 


The Quickshot Launch Alternatives 

Fleshlight also sells a Universal Launch (which we tested & reviewed here) that works with most other Fleshlight sleeves. It’s bigger and bulkier but more versatile since it works with many different Fleshlights instead of just a few. 

And if you want interactive features, then look no further than the Kiiroo Keon, possibly my favorite interactive blowjob machine. Check out my review for more info on this beauty. 

Each of them has its, own unique strengths and weaknesses, so here’s a handy table to help you decide which is best for you.

Final Thoughts

If you don’t already have a Quickshot, get one and try it out before deciding on a Launch. It’s not cheap, and if you don’t like the Quickshots, then you’re out of luck and a chunk of change. 

If you do like them and want the 21st-century sexperience, then go for it! Welcome to the new age of automated masturbation sessions. Enjoy!
