Not safe at all
So we were at the Paintball Busters Buster Cup and 2 of my freinds needed a barrel condom. So they bought the only ones they had left, NXe for $8 Canadian. Well one of my freinds has an A-5 with a 16 inch SP Progressive, and the elastic cord didn't even make it halfway down his barrel before it ripped out of the bag. Not very safe, huh? My second freind, with a Genisis Surge, pulled his to his feedneck and dry fired to test the strength of condom. It flew right off, with quite a force too! They took them bac and got their $8 back.
EDIT, MAJOR EDIT!
I'm pretty sure that those condoms were knockoffs. I recently purchased another one, and my freind has a Joy edition one. They are different, as these have the elastic looped and the bag itself sewn around them at the base, instead of up the side.
They may have gotton defective products, but they were not safe at all. Thats no good. Its a nice looking barrel condom, but it doesn't do it's job.
Those must have been knock offs, as I have on now, and it's a different design, and its way stronger. I'm still gonna leave it as a one, cause those first ones were just scary.

Dispute: The guy listed this as a knock off and gave it a rating of 1, knowing it wasn't the real deal he hasn't changed the rating, so I find this highly inaccurate to those who just skim through without really reading the whole review, thus making me think twice before I buy this.
I realize this is an older review but I think it's a fair warning.
I've seen several NXe socks that don't APPEAR to be knock offs but are most certainly poor designs.
All of the ones I've seen have had the elastic looped THROUGH the "channel" at the top of the sock and many come apart at the seam just below this part. The reinforced section made of nylon webbing that does the work of absorbing the impact of a shot stops about an inch short of the top. The stress concentrates there and rips the sock after a while. See the photo I posted.
The embroidery is flawless and the sewn in tag features the NXe logo so I'm inclined to think these are the Real McCoy.
