Lately, while hanging, I’ve been noticing a stringy thing going down the top of my shaft, pretty much down the center. I gets tight when I hang. Does anyone know what this is? Does it stretch, or am I in danger of damaging it? Has anyone else had this issue?
Sounds like a ligament. If you follow it to the base it will probably fan out. It should feel “ungiving” when you try to push it while taunt. Also, while pushing on it alittle, you may feel a slight tug at the pubic bone area.
If so, its probably a ligament and stretching is good.

I see the same thing when hanging. At first I thought it was a ligament, but upon further inspection, it looks like a vein. Since you apply stress to other (unseen) veins in your dick while hanging, I assume it isn’t causing much harm. Just be sure to stop hanging if you see any changes to it.
Is it perfectly straight, and fairly tough? Does it run all the way down your shaft? Or is it just at the base? If it runs all the way down your shaft, that sounds like your septum. It does indeed stretch, and also seems to be a limiting factor for some people. If it is only at the base and has an attachment point (and almost feels like it connects to the septum) on the shaft, that would be your ligs. If the septum is your current limiting factor, that might be why your V-hanging has worked out fairly well for you. If you are going to do regular hanging and you feel your septum is the tightest thing when you do so, might I suggest a good set of V-stretches before you start hanging? You will notice the tension in the septum is even more pronounced than usual if you do so. Again, only a suggestion, but it couldn’t possibly hurt anything to try it out and see if it feels effective to you.
This is me in case you ever want to know what kind of psycho you're dealing with.
It runs straight down my shaft, a little off center. The septum is strong enough to become a limiting factor? I’ve also noticed my gains are starting to slow, so the septum thing probably is my next limiting factor. I may plateau next month if this keeps up. I’m too close to my goal to give up though. Thanks for the replies.
>>The septum is strong enough to become a limiting factor?<<
As the junction of the two CCs, and the point that usually takes the most stress during an erection, the septum can be fairly tough indeed.

Don’t think like that! Whatever happened to optimism? :p It might be noteworthy to mention that because of the structure of the penis, usually once the septum is encountered as a limiting factor, that it remains the limiting factor for quite some time. Don’t worry man, although it is fairly tough in some guys, this tissue WILL yield. Just keep adding heat, and apply the necessary forces, and you will gain.
