Marinera, I achieved 1” in about 1.5 years, with several weeks off for vacuum damage/tension blister healing. I’d previously gained an inch by pumping.
Noneone, when I first tried the vacextender attachment, I found it very comfortable so I overdid it once and ended up with another blood blister. I never actually conditioned my glans to wear this extender because I had to give up PE for a while. With my homemade latex sleeves, my glans constantly had a darker circle at the tip, it did look strange but it disappeared after a few months when I stopped using the extender.
Now I have been wearing it for about 5 days after a long break so I am slowly building up wearing time, the tension is set to minimum (no compression of the rod springs) and if there is any tingling sensation at the glans, I don’t hesitate to take it off and massage it. In any case I think that it is good to remove the attachment every 30mins or so to return the blood circulation.
Damage usually happened when tension was high and the sleeve slipped off the glans, unfortunately the Autoextender solution hasn’t eliminated this problem, so this time I am being very careful!
Concerning what happens to penis tissue, I believe that extra tissue is being created because my shrivelled size (when skin and not blood makes up the size) has increased a little. If the penis structure was merely stretched past its elastic limit, I doubt that the skin would retain its ability to shrivel so tightly. I have maintained my “grower” qualities: from 4” minimum to 8.5” maximum whereas a “stretched” penis would surely have made me a “shower”.
Thanks coxinox, interesting device, not so much expensive also. I think it would be easy to make an homemade version of such a thing, anyway.
Thank you also, dongalong. About this:

I think skin grows in different ways than deeper penile tissues, giving that they are different. However, it’s not the topic of this thread: if you want to post your views on penile growth, the thread I’ve posted before is a better place, and I’ll be glad of it :) .
I use the X4 as well and it’s helped me recover some lost length (PE surgery, not recommended). I started off, post op, 1.5” shorter than I started. The X4 has helped me recover .75 of that. It can be pretty uncomfortable when I use a modified (do it yourself type kit) version of it. I take the The head strap and rig, attach a coat hangar to the bottom (there’s a little whole there, works perfectly), and use a work out resistance band to add tension. There’s a good chance I may be using a bit too much tension. Over all I would say it’s not a bad investment. Comes with a warranty as well.
Whoever said "your first impression is often the best one" is a damned fool.
Thank you for input, 1shot.
So, you lost 1.5” in length with PE surgery? Maybe you could start a new thread about your experience, I think it could be very interesting for many members around here.
Ok, nominations are closed. Thank you all for input. Please vote:
Does anyone have any experience with the X4Labs clinical study “free extender” offer? You try the extender for 6 months, track it on a data chart daily, and submit it to them with photos to get a “free extender.” That’s the idea, but I don’t know if they’d follow through. I’ve tried searching up this before posting on the thread but didn’t find any real answers.
For anyone using the vac-extender head piece. To stop any blistering all I use is 2 pieces of secure comfort tape just cover the tip with it and you will be able to stretch for hrs with out any problem I can stretch at max length for an hr with slight fluid build up. Just a helpful hint to anyone who has one.
I have been out of PE forever the wife told me to stop but I think I might start up again while she is gone.
Current stats march 2008= Nbel 6.75 Bpel 7.5 Eg 5.5
Goal by the end of next year Nbel 8.5 Eg 6.5
I’ve don’t X4 Labs 3-5 hours a day for 4 months, no gains. Lots of uncomfort. Very disappointed with this product
I have a cheap knock off and I love it.
I bought the XXXXXXXX for cheaper and I love it. I am using everyday at least 4 days per week 4/5 hours per day. I saved 40% buying from this seller.
I have the first vacextender model that was produced. It isn’t uncomfortable, but I don’t like squishing my glans into the constriction sleeve. I also don’t like putting on the sleeves.
I’m tempted to try a noose style with a foam covering, but I’m still not convinced. Oh, and there’s the wider stap style that seems like it may be something that I could wear for 2 hours at a time.
I can’t decide.
Struggling with a peyronies injury during sex and loss of size after having been into PE.
