Modesto - you’re a moderator and probably know a lot more about pe than I do. I read in a thread by penismith that below 18 pounds is considered low weight for collagen (= ligs or tunica) stretching. High weights according to that thread were in the above 60 (yes - sixty) pound range. However, I can’t see how we can reach there - in vacuum hanging I suppose that the upper limit could be at best 20 pounds (I tried once but my wrap caused too much pain - maybe now, with more practice - it could work, - but 60? May be with a bib hanger but again - a large proportion of the weight would pull external (skin) structures and it would hurt like hell.
What do you think / know about max weight in vac hanging?
I haven’t seen that thread by Penismith, but I doubt he was recommending that anybody hang with 60#. As far as I know, no one ever has hanged with that much weight. 45# is the highest I have ever seen anyone reporting hanging, and that was for a very seasoned PE’er (Bib) how has already reported gaining multiple inches.
I think most guys would agree that very heavy weights (above 25#) are usually not necessary for gains, and often are counterproductive. The goal is to provide firm traction, so that you can feel the tissues stretching. I relate the feeling to how my hamstrings feel when I’m stretching them.
THe exact mechanisms of penile growth are not known, but many people think that moderate forces applied for long periods of time stimulate cell growth and/or division in the penis’ softer tissues, and help to elongate (by proliferation and remodeling) the penis’ stronger tissues (like the ligs and tunica).
Regarding the limits of vacuum hangers, I haven’t yet tried anything above 15#. I can say, however, that 15# is no problem at all with my wrapping technique. I think I could easily get to 20, and perhaps to 25#. I really don’t feel that I need to, however, since I feel very good fatigue in my ligs and shaft at the current weight.
Regarding the Bib Hanger, I found that 15# presented an obstacle. Beyond that, hanging become very uncomfortable for me. Same with the Wench. 15# is also the threshold beyond which discoloration set in, for either hanger.
The key to hanging moderate to heavy weights is wrapping. I think the vacuum hanger is very promising in this regard. Finding the right wrapping technique can really extend its usable range.
But, heed the above warnings. Hanging 15# with a vacuum hanger is like hanging 18 or 20# with a Bib. Don’t be too quick to increase the weight. Milk all the gains you can from the lightest weights you can use.
