Fleshlight male masturbators are wonderful products. One of the main complaints and, sometimes, surprises about Fleshlights is their size. A full-sized Fleshlight is almost as big as a wine bottle.
Fleshlight introduced two smaller masturbators last year. The smaller one, Fleshlight Quickshot, steered away from the traditional form and size of the Fleshlights in favor of a small, open-ended design. The other one, Fleshlight Go, also is much smaller than full-sized models but maintains the traditional shape of the Fleshlight.
I've had a Fleshlight Go Surge for two months now. I've found it to be an excellent Fleshlight. Considering how much smaller it is, while still delivering the full Fleshlight experience, I think, it might be the best Fleshlight out there. It is also cheaper than a full-sized Fleshlight. Read the full review to find out what made me think this way and if Go Surge can be the best Fleshlight for you as well.

Size of the Fleshlight Go Surge
There is so much contradicting information about the sizes of the small Fleshlights that I decided to spend a couple of hours measuring and testing to make as much of an objective assessment as possible. You can find the nitty-gritty details at the bottom of this post.
In short, the tightness of the Surge Go sleeve is comparable to the regular sized Fleshlights and it is long enough for men up to 8" (20 cm) in length.
Other Small(er) Fleshlights
Other smaller Fleshlight options are Quickshot and Flight lines of products.
I've reviewed both Fleshlight Quickshots and found them good but different from the traditional Fleshlights. The Quickshot is different from other Fleshlights. It is open-ended, very small, and discreet. It lacks the luxurious sensation of the total envelopment that you have with the other Fleshlights. Also, the texture feels quite lackluster.
I'm currently working on a review of Flight Instructor. My initial thoughts are that it is quite good.
The Instructor has a tight entrance that leads into a snug, but not too tight, canal, which has a nice, bumpy texture. The texture is not as intense as in the Go Surge.
The Flight case is much nicer looking than in most Fleshlight models. The sleeve material is different as well; it is still nice and soft, but it also feels more solid somehow. The material warms up and dries really fast, quicker than the Go Surge.
I'll be coming back to Fleshlight Flight Instructor with a full review in a couple of weeks. The Flight review is now live. You can find it here.
Sizes of the Small Fleshlights
The three Fleshlights compared here are; Go Surge, Flight Instructor, and Quickshot Vantage.
Size of the case: Go is slightly larger than Flight. Quickshot is the smallest by a big margin.
Sleeve length: Go (8" / 20 cm) > Flight (7" / 17.5 cm) > Quickshot (3.5" / 9 cm).
Sleeve tightness: The canal width in the Quickshot Vantage is similar to the Go Surge but it feels much tighter because of the smaller inside diameter of the case. The Flight Instructor has the snuggest canal but it still feels very nice (not too small like the Quickshot). The Go Surge's canal is not very tight but it's the most intense of the three.
What Does Fleshlight Go Surge Feel Like?
With the size issue now clarified, how does the Go Surge feel in comparison to other Fleshlights? Can the smaller and cheaper Fleshlight compete with its full-sized counterparts?
I find the Go Surge to be perfectly good for me. The size is great (I'm 7" long with 5" girth) and the sensations are amazing. The only thing I'm having trouble with is pacing myself. The sleeve is quite intense and the sensations build up quickly. All of a sudden, I'm beyond the point of no return and I so much would have liked to continue longer.
Fleshlight Go Surge Sleeve Texture
The sleeve has small ribs inside for most of its length. I don't sense them individually but they create some kind of micro pushing and pulling sensation. The domes in the middle of the sleeve intensify and refresh the sensations. I think the domes are a big factor on how sneakily Go Surge pushes me to a howling ("no, not yet!!") orgasm.
I also found out that Go Surge has the strongest suction of my Fleshlights. Usually, I alternate between short strokes with a lot of suction (the end-cap closed) and long strokes with the end-cap open but with Go Surge, I wasn't able to do much of that as I was spending so much time holding myself back to prolong the session.
You can see from this review that I really like Fleshlight Go Surge. I think it might be the best male masturbator out there. Not all my reviews are this positive. You can find my other Fleshlight reviews below.
How Does Go Surge Compare with Other Fleshlights?
I find Go Surge to be the best Fleshlight out of my five different models. The Bookworm comes second; it's less exciting but still results in very pleasing sensations for longer sessions.
My new Flight Instructor might come quite close to the Go Surge. I still need to use it more before reaching my verdict. The Flight Instructor review is now live.
At the bottom of my list are Quickshot Vantage and the Original Fleshlight; the Quickshot is too small for me and I'm not very fond of its short, open-ended design. The Original lacks sensation and is very boring.
Cleaning and Drying Fleshlight Go Surge
To clean the Go Surge, I do the regular process; 1) run a lot of warm water through the sleeve to rinse off the fluids, 2) brush all surfaces I can reach with my hand and fingers, and 3) dry the sleeve with a lint-free towel.
I always hang my Fleshlights to dry above a baseboard heater where the rising air speeds up the drying. Lately, I've also started using a small lint-free cloth that I pull through the canal to remove moisture before I hang the sleeve to dry. I've found that this speeds up the drying quite a bit.
It takes 2-3 hours to dry the Go Surge; probably even less but I just want to be sure that the sleeve is totally dry before packing it away.

Should Go Surge be the New Default Size for Fleshlights?
I really like the smaller size of the Fleshlight Go line. It is easier to use, store, or take with you. While reviewing it, I also found out that the Go Surge sleeve feels as good as any full-sized Fleshlight sleeve.
Go's only shortcoming is that it can accommodate only men with shorter than 8" (20 cm) penises; when the average length of a penis is 4" - 7" (10 - 17.5 cm), that wouldn't be a problem for a great majority of men.
Therefore, I think that Fleshlight should make the Go-size their default size and start launching the wonderful Girls sleeves in this size. The old regular size could then be re-branded as Fleshlight XL. What do you think?
Conclusion: Fleshlight Go Surge Review
Fleshlight Go Surge is almost a perfect Fleshlight. It's much smaller than full-sized Fleshlights but doesn't trade away the qualities that make Fleshlights so great. The sleeve is 1.5" (4 cm) shorter than in the full-sized Fleshlights but otherwise it's a fully formed sleeve that can fit men up to 8" (20 cm) long.
It's a wonder why Fleshlight doesn't make more products in this size.
- A fully-fledged Fleshlight in a smaller package
- Exciting, intense sleeve
- Cheaper than regular Fleshlights
- Wonderful SuperSkin material
- Max. penetration depth is 8" (20 cm)
- An intense sleeve, would love to enjoy it longer.
Appendix: How Big Is the Fleshlight Go Surge in Comparison to Other Fleshlights?
I've summarized my tests and measurements in the table below. The canal tightness was measured by an unscientific finger-test.
2.1-3.1" (5.3-8 cm)
2.2-3.1" (5.5-8 cm)
2.6-2.9" (6.5-7.3 cm)
2.4-3.7" (6-9.5 cm)
8.5" (21.5 cm)
7.5-7.8" (19-20 cm)
4.3" (11 cm)
9.8" (25 cm)
1.8-3" (4.5-7.7 cm)
1.8-2.9" (4.5-7.3 cm)
2.5" (6.3 cm)
1.8-3.7" (4.5-9.5 cm)
7.9" (20 cm)
6.9" (17.5 cm)
3.5" (9 cm)
8.9" (22.5 cm)
Comparable to the regular sized Fleshlights. Narrower than Original (0.8" / 2 cm) but slightly wider than Bookworm (0.55-0.7" / 1.4-1.8 cm).
Quite tight, snug around my index finger. Clearly tighter than Go Surge. Feels good.
The canal width is close to Go Surge but due to the narrower case it feels tighter. Too tight for me.
Lots of variety between different models.
Note that many sleeves have varying canal tightness.
Go Surge vs. Full-Sized Fleshlights
The size of Fleshlight Go Surge is a confusing topic. The case is much, much smaller than in regular Fleshlights but, most importantly, the size of the sleeve inside isn’t that different from regular Fleshlights.
I wasn’t able to find the specific dimensions of the Go Surge sleeve anywhere, so, I picked up my measuring tape, sat down on the floor, and surrounded myself with several Fleshlights.
Confirming the size of the Go case was easy; the length is 8.5" (21.5 cm) and width is 2" - 3" (5 - 8 cm). But I couldn’t wrap my mind around the fact that even though the case is so different in size, the sleeve inside has quite similar dimensions to the full-sized Fleshlights.
At the bottom end of the sleeve (furthest away from the orifice), the external dimensions of the Go Surge sleeve are the same as in a regular Fleshlight (1.8" / 4.5 cm). At the entrance side, the external diameter of the Go Surge sleeve is 0.6" (1.5 cm) less. This difference doesn't affect the sensations as the bulge is more for the design and usability than anything else.
If you look inside the sleeve, the width of the Go Surge canal is comparable to regular Fleshlights. In an unscientific finger-test, the Go Surge’s canal is a little narrower than the Fleshlight Original but slightly wider than the Fleshlight Bookworm.
This leads me to the conclusion that, from a tightness point of view, the Go Surge is totally comparable to the regular Fleshlights. Also, the walls of the sleeve are of similar thickness, except in the bulge close to the entrance, where the difference doesn't matter much.
Of course, the length of the Go Surge is less than in full-sized Fleshlights. The official length of the sleeve is 7” (17.5 cm) but you can add 1” (2.5 cm) for the entrance. Thus, men up to 8” (20 cm) in length can use Go Surge. The regular Fleshlight sleeves are 9.5” (24 cm) long.

Fleshlight Go Surge vs. Flight Instructor vs. Quickshot Vantage
The Flight case is slightly smaller than in the Go Surge. The width is roughly the same but the Flight's case is 0.6 - 1" (1.5 - 2.5 cm) shorter. The Quickshot is much smaller than the Go or Flight.
The Flight sleeve is a little narrower in the orifice end (this doesn't affect how it feels) and the same size as the Go in the bottom-end. The total length of the sleeve (entrance + canal) is a tad under 7" (17.5 cm) which makes the Flight one inch (2.5 cm) shorter than the Go. The Quickshot is much shorter than the others.
The Flight Instructor's canal is narrower than in the Quickshot Vantage or Go Surge, but it doesn't feel too tight as the case is still big enough to allow the material to be squished on the sides.
The canal widths of the Go Surge and Quickshot Vantage are similar to each other. The Quickshot feels much tighter because the case is narrower inside. It's too tight for me.
