I’ve been thinking lately about traction force and how it is the underlying principle behind extenders. This traction force is usually measured in grams. Most extenders are spring-loaded and the extender I use encourages you to add small rods (0.5cm) to increase the tension and sooner or later you will start to compress the springs. I started to compress the springs once I was at a 19cm stretch. The extender I use does not have markings indicating the tension, all I know is that the maximum compression of the springs is equivalent to 1,500 grams.
What I’m curious about is if these 1,500, 2,000, 2,500 gram etc spring-loaded extenders take the none-compression traction force into account? I’m not so sure if they do. For example, as I said I’m stretching at 19cm and the springs are now lightly compressing because of that stretch. However, at 18.5cm the springs do not compress at all. So how much is that traction force? The non-spring-compressed traction force. Basically, how much is the traction force of the extender pulling my unit to a length of 18.5cm WITHOUT compressing the springs? Does anyone really have a formula to estimate how much that traction force would be?
Say I increase the stretch and I’m now compressing the springs 50%, so around 750 grams, that traction force would be added to the non-spring-compressed traction force, so ‘x’ grams + 750 grams. With this in mind I think it is possible that I’ve been stretching way too far.
If someone grabs behind their glans and pulls outwards, how much traction force is that? Has anyone worked out a formula reliant on BPFSL, BPEL or NBPEL?
This is a table created by a member of the now defunct AndroPenis forum, but I doubt how accurate it is:
600 grams (1.3 pds) = 4cm less than erect length
800 grams (1.8 pds) = same as erect length
1000 grams (2.2 pds) = 2cm more than erect length
1200 grams (2.6 pds) = 4cm more than erect length
1500 grams (3.3 pds) = 6cm more than erect length
