Raw Rods brings us hot and horny black studs, brothas and thugs in dirty bareback action. There's a nice variety of models from ebony twinks to more beefy and rough types. Most of the guys are in their early twenties, but you will find some men up to 40 years of age. Skin tones are mixed from dark coffees and chocolates to light caramels and everything in between, and a good number of the performers have nice big cocks. The brothas, as Raw Rods calls them, are mostly good looking with slender to athletic bodies, as well as some on the muscular side. A lot of them have tattoos and a rough look with attitudes to match. Some of the guys are gay, but you will find straight and bisexual performers, as well.
The guys are mix of porn regulars and first-timers. Some of the guys do a scene and then disappear, others like Vic Valentino and Giovanni Cruz appear in multiple videos. With a nearly 10 inch dick, Valentino is a fan favorite and fucks ass in 11 videos while Cruz has appear in four scenes. Leon Holt is another heavily-inked regular who's appeared in 12 videos. You'll find all the guys listing in the Models section in alphabetical order, and you can re-sort them by Best Tops and Best Bottoms to see if your favorite appears more than once.
Most of the action here is raw duos, but there are a few threesomes as well as a handful of solos. You can expect guys sucking lots of big black dicks, and these ebony studs love eating ass, too. And there's also plenty of condom-free fucking including deep, hard pounding. The content is exclusive, although this company makes a habit of recycling their content across their network so I can't guarantee you won't see these scenes elsewhere. The models, however, aren't exclusive, so you will probably recognize some of the Raw Rods models from other sites. For example, both Hotrod and Domino Star have worked for other studios.
Raw Rods currently offers 337 episodes, each with pictures and video. The videos are DRM-free and offered in MP4 format. The newest scenes are offered in two downloadable sizes at 1280x720 and 854x480, the smaller size compatible with most newer mobiles, and the oldest scenes also offer a third size at 480x270. You can also stream the videos if you prefer and these play at 986x554, but they can be enlarged to full screen with only a small loss of sharpness. Video quality varies, but while some vids are sharper than others, overall I'd say the movies are good amateur quality, and the action is captured very well with lots of different camera angles and close-ups.
Each episode comes with a set of pictures. Some sets contain good amateur quality digital stills sized at about 700x1050, others offer decent screencaps at 700x394. Some sets feature one or the other, others are a mix of both. Regardless, the pics show off the guys and the action well, although the screencaps can be a little repetitious at times and the odd set could have better lighting. The pics are offered in galleries and you can save the pics individually or download a zip file. Watermarks are a little on the large side but rarely covered anything I wanted to see.
Besides the video and pictures, every episode comes with a juicy scene description and model profiles with some stats including age, relationship status, body measurements, preferences and cock size. Members also get a desktop calendar each month featuring the Raw Rods models, and these calendars come in a wide variety of sizes that should match any screen from older smart phones to high resolution monitors.
When we last reviewed the site a year and a half ago we complained about it recycling some of their updates, but they are now following a production schedule and update with a fresh scene every week. In fact, they have added 111 scenes since our last review,and that's considerably more than weekly, but only the six latest episodes are dated; there are no dates for content added before that so I can't really tell what's happening.
There are a few more things worth mentioning. First, there are two pre-checked offers on the billing page that, if left checked, will sign you up for recurring membership to two other sites, but they're easy enough to opt out of. There's also a two-day trial membership that rebills at a very high rate that's three times the price of a regular membership, so watch for that, and the quarterly membership costs five times the cost of the monthly membership, as well. Last, while not an issue, be aware that there are commercial links to live cams, pay-per-view videos, DVDs and other sites on the navbar.
Raw Rods delivers horny black men including amateurs, hunks, twinks and thugs in hardcore bareback action. There's lots to see here with a good variety of performers in 337 good-sized videos with matching photo sets. The videos can be downloaded, streamed and the smaller ones will play on most mobiles, and the site adds a new video every Thursday. There aren't a lot of all-black male bareback sites and Raw Rods is one of the best ones out there with no major issues and plenty of ebony cock. It's definitely worth checking out.
