For Review and Sell: Male Hanger 1 & 2 and Bib Starter
I’m selling all hangers at reduced price. If thats not allowed I understand. I mainly just wanted to leave my review to help the community. I started this thread over at MOS but it was closed, fishy fishy. I suspect because stillwantmore is buddies with DLD or maybe even a moderator. At any rate I decided to at least put my experiences out there for the rest of us and might even lead to improvements in the future.
I prefer the Bib Hardcore and I’m sticking with it. So I have no need for these other devices but think they could serve some use to members here. The bib starter has never been comfortable to me, I always get pinching either above or below and with the deeper well of the Hardcore its a better “fit” for me. Now I started hanging with vacuum hangers and had great success with those. The compression style hangers offered a different kind of stress than my penis was used to. So for sake of shock and awe and potential to go to higher weights and better use of fulcrums I began to invest time, money and energy to learning how. Note I still hang under 20 lbs and am at the moment trying to hang with both the LG and the Hardcore as both have pros and cons. This is a review of the hangers and the process I went through.
Now the malehangers are cheaper than the Bib’s, but my choice would still be to go with a Bib over the malehangers. The first one is a copy of the Hardcore and I was able to get that one to work much better than the 2nd version. Oddly enough I had to wrap the way Bib suggested to get a better bundle and stop twisting. Also a little nuisance is the cord. It would get caught up on the bolts and constantly had to clear it before attaching weights, but wasn’t that big of a deal. I also found that the bottom teeth being flat and predominately larger surface on the left side promoted twisting in me, primarily to the right, but I do have an oval shaped penis and took allot of trial in error to get the Hardcore to work. I did experience an injury with the first malehanger as it twisted after weight was applied and lead to numbness, thank god for only a few months. This was years ago but it did effect my sex life at the time. Not trying to knock the first model just that was my experience and could have been user error as this was the first compression hanger I bought.
The bottom bolts are shorter and lack the nut that stops the wingnuts. This is really a non issue just pointing out the difference. The nut does make it smoother and is something that was added into the 2nd version. Also in both malehangers the washers for the top bolt are really thin and flimsy and sometimes hard to get to the end and seat properly. Again not that big of a deal just more of a nuissance. In the bibs there are two thick washers glued together so its easier to maneuver.
After numbness went away and living situations changed I decided to give the starter a try since maybe it was because I needed padding. But I continued to suffer from skin irritation and trouble fitting with every kind of change to wrap and bottom nut setup I could think of. I then went to the hardcore and by that point it took very little time to get a comfortable way to wrap and bottom nut adjustments so I could hang comfortable. I have tested the difference now after more experience of the Hardcore against the 1st edition male hanger but again with my oval shaped penis and the way the bottom platform shifts to the right during tightening I still get some twisting though not terrible now as its 45 degrees or less to the right.
The malehanger #2 attempts to improve upon the Hardcore by basically just becoming a vertical oval. I couldn’t get this sucker to work at all. Again my penis is an horizontal oval so I don’t know if that has anything to do with it. It has no added channels or gripping surfaces. The front of the Hardcore (and all bibs and the malehanger 1) is wallowed out so if it slides down towards head the head will fit inside a little. I think this also allows a blood plug to form as it forces the pressure towards the head. The malehanger 2 is just a straight object. If it slides down towards head its going to definitely cut off blood flow at the most and at the least be uncomfortable. With the hardcore, starter and malehanger 1 I could attach the hangers anywhere on the shaft and as long as I formed good “shoulders” the hanger would stay there. But with the malehanger 2 even attaching at base lead to slippage to the head and almost immediate cutting off of circulation.
The next issue for me is the top bolt. Looking past the sliding and what I consider poor design as everything is just too flat and sharp, the top bolt is what will actually hold the penis in this contraption. I say that in a bad way. All the other hangers mentioned the top bolt blends in with the top teeth so the top bolt doesn’t actually exert any pressure on top of the shaft. It also seats in the hanger at an angle of about 15-20 degrees. In this one its almost a quarter inch below the top teeth. So after it slides down the shaft a little bit its the top bolt that digs into the top of the shaft, exerting extreme pressure, damaging skin and contributing to cutting off more circulation. Also not the top washer issue mentioned above.
I’m not saying its useless I’m only stating that its never worked for me.
All hangers are in like new condition. The starter only has a few months of use within the past 3 years. I’ve had all hangers for around 1-3 years, but again I prefer the Hardcore when using compression hangers. I will sell the hangers for the following price plus shipping. Will use paypal.
Bib Starter $40
Malehanger 1 $20
Malehanger 2 $5
