The Original Magic Wand (formerly of Hitachi fame) has long been one of the most renown vibrators – *ahem* – personal massagers in the world. But if you’re a serious power queen that likes deep clitoral vibrations, that’s about to change.
That’s right, there’s a new sheriff in town!
The Doxy Die Cast is our pick for the best magic wand, and one of the most powerful vibrators in existence. The real question though, is does it merit the $180 price tag?
For someone on a strict budget we’d generally say no – you can get close to this power level for half the price (and that’s where the original Magic Wand reigns supreme). But if you’re not constrained by your wallet and you want the best of the best in terms of powerful, “thuddy” vibrations, then the Die Cast is a top-notch choice that’s hard to beat.

- Weight: the added weight of the Die Cast helps target the vibrations where you want them to go
- Power: this is a damn powerful vibrator for the power queens out there. But also works great at lower RPMs thanks to the sliding scale power buttons
- Sleek: This vibe simply looks and feels incredibly luxurious with its sexy aluminum body
- Corded: a 12-foot plug-in cord allows for incredible power, and the peace of mind that batteries won't die mid-session
- Most magic wand accessories don't fit the Die Cast's head - for that you'll want the Doxy 3R
- Can be too heavy if you have grip issues. It can also take some effort to keep it in place due to this fact
- Some quality control issues with the neck of the vibrator. But, comes with a 12-month warranty should this happen to you
- A price tag that is almost as hefty as the Die Cast itself

Sleek, Sexy, and Heavy
Weighted Aluminum Body
The first thing you notice about the Die Cast vs. the standard Doxy wand or the Original Magic Wand is the sleek aluminum body. It not only looks sexy, it also serves a functional purpose in that it’s heavy. Much heavier than the light ABS plastic that makes up most magic wand handles.
And while heavy might seem like a downside at first, we can assure you it’s anything but.
The weight of the Doxy Die Cast not only feels solid in your hands, but it also helps direct pressure and vibrations where you want them to go – namely, right into your clit. The added pressure from the weight is a welcome addition if you like powerful vibrators, because it means less strain on your wrists as you struggle to hold the wand in place.
Conversely, the added wight may be too heavy if you have mobility or grip issues. The aluminum body does keep vibrations from traveling up to your arm, so it is easier to grip than most vibrators from that perspective.
Taking things a step further, the head of the massager is double weighted internally which gives it slightly heavier and rumblier vibrations, especially at higher RPMs. It still gets a bit buzzy above ~6,000 or so RPMs, but the extra weight definitely helps in that regard.
Corded for Max Power
It is a corded magic wand (for max power), and comes with a 12-foot power cord which is generally long enough for most bedrooms.
Even though there’s no fear of batteries dying on you mid-session, you really shouldn’t use the Die Cast for more than 15-20 minutes at a time, and that level of sensations can actually temporarily numb your nerve endings a bit due to the powerful vibrations.
The Die Cast will automatically shut itself off after 20 minutes of use, but you can turn it right back on if you are still using it – and it turns back on to the power setting you had it at before.
The Die Cast comes with a silky soft silicone head. Most magic wands use silicone these days, but it’s worth noting compared to the Original Magic Wand, which still has a porous TPE head (although the Magic Wand Pro uses silicone now).
*Some* Users Have Had Quality Control Issues
Lastly – and this is important for a $180 vibrator – the Die Cast seems to have some quality control issues with the internals sometimes breaking under the power of its own vibrations. Doxy has a comprehensive 12-month warranty (and most of these defects seem to happen ‘out of the box’ and not over time).
So if you’re unlucky and get a dud, you can and will get it replaced with fairly little effort. If you don’t have problems right away, then you should be in the clear for the life of your wand. Doxy also has great and responsive customer service should this happen, although we understand it can be a pain in the ass to deal with. FWIW, we never had any problems.
Unlimited Power for Those Who Seek it
Now for the reason you came here: power.
Unlike other magic wand vibrators with set power levels, the Doxy Die Cast has a continuous range from 3,000 – 9,000 RPM. Pressing up or down on the power buttons gives you a little more, a little less, meaning it’s great for getting the exact kind of vibrations you need. For reference, the original magic wand tops out somewhere between 6,000 – 6,300 RPMs.
But pure RPMs don’t mean much on their own; a hand drill rotates at very high RPMs, but that doesn’t mean it would make a good vibrator (and don’t get us started on the ‘drilldo’). What matters more is the weight and range of the internal motor.
As mentioned above, thanks to the double-weighted head the Die Cast is very ‘thuddy’ or rumbly at the lower RPMs, and gets slightly buzzier as it goes above ~6,000 RPM. We really couldn’t imagine using those higher settings directly on the clit, but if you’re the type of gal who likes to use a wand over her panties or through a blanket.
Of course, with great power comes great noise. The die Cast is not a discreet vibrator, especially on the higher settings. It’s best when used when you (and your SO) have some privacy to truly get lost in the intense vibrations.
We found it to be quieter than the Original Magic Wand, but certainly louder than a bullet or g-spot vibrator. You could probably get away with using the lower settings discreetly though, if you do have roommates and need to stay quiet. As we mentioned, it only gets buzzy at the highest RPMs, and buzzy vibrations are what tend to be louder and more audible through a closed door.
We guarantee you’ll be making some noise anyways, so this may not be as big of a deal 😉

We’re not the only ones who love power – see what some other reviewers on the web say about the Doxy Die Cast:
Doxy Die Cast: Final Review
We don’t think the Doxy Die Cast is the best value in wand vibrator, mostly due to the $180 price tag, which is almost as hefty as the Die Cast itself. The Magic Wand Pro is 90% as good and powerful for roughly half the cost.
But the Die Cast has some features that earns it the title of “best magic wand” if budget isn’t much of a concern. What we love:
- The sleek and sexy design of the aluminum body
- The extra ‘thuddy’ vibrations that come with the added weight
- The sliding power scale to let you pinpoint the right intensity
- The overall quality of construction and the friendliness of the Doxy team
So if you’re looking for pure performance in a magic wand vibrator, and want a toy that’s as visually appealing as it is functional, there’s no better choice than the Die Cast.
