How to Read & Adjust Rod style Traction Devices (X4/Size Genetics/JES/Similar)

You should make a video on this some time! I think it’d be a great help. I haven’t really used my extender yet, but I tried it on a couple times to get the sizing right and tension, Yada Yada. It kept slipping off or I’d have the strap too tight and I’d start to lose circulation. Going to try it with the noose in a bit when I try my first actual session.

It already takes both hands to get into the extender. I ain’t got but two. A camera person would be needed. And even then, it’d be more than a notion. I mean I’ll contemplate it but I need some help. *chuckles*


Now: 9" BPEL x 6" MSEG as of 12/16/2016 This is my story...and a few progress pics of me here.

Then: 6.25" x 4.37" in 8/2009 Are you new to PE? Here's some advice I wish someone had given me when I first started.

My big secret? My methods. There is no "Holy Grail" of Penis Enlargement. Only time and effort works. I'm *8* years in and counting. All you have to do is put the work in and keep the faith. Also Fitness helps too.

I mean you could always use a tripod or something to that effect.

Your comment made me go on Amazon and look up a tripod. There’s one for around $16 (which is way less than the $33-50 I expected) and I’m making an order tomorrow for some other gear. I may actually include it then put a video together to demonstrate the application of the extender and tension. I haven’t done it in ages…may actually have to practice and rehearse to refresh. *chuckles*

May actually have that project on the front burner now.

Man, that’d be awesome and I know I would greatly appreciate it, myself. You’re the man, TG!

If you’re safety obsessed like me (I have Peyronie’s) then it is a good idea to measure the tension on your device at each mark, rather than going by the manufacturers information. The tension at each mark was about 70% higher than the manual stated it would be on my fastsize device.

Second thing, there is a mod you can do to your device that makes it much easier to strap in. Essentially it allows you to strap your glans in the the head piece, then put the head piece on the traction rods. It is much easier to strap in and get a good fit as you don’t need to be holding the spring tension down while strapping in. I have attached an image of the mod.

In my humble opinion the noose is superior to strap or vac head, as long as you take the time to learn how to strap in effectively with the absolute minimum required tightness in the noose while still holding firm. And yeah like thoughtfulgold I also try to get the glans inflated a bit before strapping in, the noose then holds better and does not need to be as tight.

I used to use a spring based extender (cheap chinese proextender) and measured tension by compressing the unit down on a set of digital kitchen scales. I agree the marks are widely inaccurate and I ended up ignoring them and adjusting simply by feel. I now use a non spring based leluv slider (also sold as a Miracle) which I much prefer and use the stress relaxation approach of periodically adjusting the stretch during a session.

As far as attachment is concerned I have tried virtually all the options including noose, silicone strap and vacuum head and now prefer an approach using a DIY velcro strap. I first wrap a bit of soft bandage immediately behind the glans, then a length of grippable (conformable) bandage on top just a bit back so the edge does not come into contact with my glans and then a short soft silicone sleeve on top. Finally I fit my unit in the velcro strap fitted cradle and tighten the strap. This grips well with the minimum of discomfort and no slippage even at high tensions.

Good evening to all.
I recently purchase an pro extender 3rd gen and I take some time to understand how wear it, and more important, how much tension should I use. Now I always check the base and the PC muscle, if it is extended it should be enough. More than this you could over train your unit or hurt yourself. Less is more. And I always change the rods after my unit get used to the small rods. Wrap your penis with something smooth as cotton fabric or similar its a good idea too.

Consistence its the key

Hey guys.. Newbie here.. Just wondering.. Is more tension better or more bars? This may be a dumb question, but.. Hey: I’m new. 😉

What you are describing is the same thing. You put more bars in, more of the tension gauge is covered and the springs do more work. Literally, the way you tension the extender is by adding more length to it then strapping your penis (which may be slightly shorter than how you have the extender setup) in it by compressing it. Or by strapping in and using the screws at the bottom to pull against your penis harder.

Do you have an extender to try this with? It’s easier to follow along if you have one.

Whyyyy yes I do!

I assumed as much.. Just thought I would double-check. I started out with short bars, but barely felt a tug, and even the 4” bar isn’t making the device very challenging to get into.

So, what is a good gauge of success here.. I know: “a bigger dick”, but I mean how do I know it’s working? When I can stretch farther?

I have so many dumb questions, and that is frustrating because I am supposed to be pretty smart. Lol

Well, extender theory is discussed in several threads but I’ll touch on it as I understand it here. No question is a stupid question unless it remains unsaid.

You know it is working when your PIs and your flaccid hang increase. In my days with an extender this is how I figured it out.

However, taking it to maximum tension doesn’t actually increase the rate of gains for most men. It is time under tension that really matters with extenders. Even relatively light forces do a lot of work over time.

“Barely feeling a tug” is actually still a very productive way to use the extender. Because, if you leave your extender set the same way every time (which I did) when you feel no tug anymore? That means you’re bigger and you have to adjust it outwards further. So it’s a matter of how you want to apply the extender.

Taking it to your physical maximum each time also has the added risk of making your penis resist the outside stimuli. Like, you tug too hard and your penis retreats into you. This is “turtling” which is the archenemy of any effective Penis Enlargement devices or techniques. So weigh your options. Comfort and a light tug with the extender over time guarantees a reward. More tension and discomfort *can* get you a reward but it *can* get you injured and *can* toughen your penis so that you see no rewards.

Toughening your penis, with too much training, is something that’s hard to tell. It only comes clear if you go an entire long period with zero gains and your Physiological Indicators are trending middle ground or negative. But…that’s a mouthful for here. Hopefully this gives you a starting point.

This was informative.. I have been using the extender since late march, and I noticed an increase in the frequency of my midnight/morning glory. ;) I wasn’t having them for a long time, and I think they may be coming back because of the extender

Noted.

Jeez, I’d better get some more bars then. Lol.. No really, I assume the stretch had to be a real good stretch where you can feel the tightness and and little pin-prickles.. Like when you’re going up a size in gauged jewelry.. So I will leave it at the point where I feel a stretch, but not the tightness and slight pain..

Also, shouldn’t it be getting right up on the bone? I have a thick fat pad, and I feel like if I’m not having it press up against the bone, it’s not really stretching.. I can see my lig when I do get a good stretch going, but maybe I am not supposed to see that.

^ This.. Scares me..

I have dealt with “turtling” before, and the extender is the only device that it doesn’t try and “turtle”. I feel an occasional tensing, but generally it’s not strong enough to pull me out of the sling. I have more an issue with that when I am doing my manual warmups.

God, I love using “turtle” as a verb.

I have heard that increasing the tension throughout a session is a good idea, and I think I understand why. Is that advisable?

Also, what do I do about the bulk? Once I put it on, if it slumps forward, it puts a lot of pressure on my prostate.. And I have tried pillows.. Right now, I have a piece of audio foam wrapped around it to support the weight.

Not really. The time under tension is what matters. If you can get more tension out of a session in theory this is good but will you be able to get that out of every session? Or is it more likely you’ll adjust it a touch too far and have issues attaching it for the rest of the set? Cuz I used to adjust up but…keeping it simple got me the gains I got out of an extender. Adjust the tension up as the extender no longer gives you a stretch. This is something you’ll be able to tell when you strap in. As far as I’m concerned.

Well, it depends on how you wear it. If you’re using the tension screws, you lose the friction they offer against the base. You can get a coat hanger though, this will work if you’re sitting upright. Just lay it across your thighs and your extender and penis will rest on the hanger. Plastic is warmer. You can do this with laying back as well, so it doesn’t slip between your thighs. Depends on your comfort level.

Yeah, I see.. Working with a low stretch at ~750g tension. The stretch doesn’t hurt.

I have to keep adjusting.. For whatever reason, my head is always slipping through the sling very, very slowly, as I usually wear the device for 1.5 hours at a time, three times a day.. I can’t tighten the strap anymore.

I also worked out a solution for the discomfort.. It’s so simple I can’t believe I didn’t think of it sooner.
