If you can make it past the wrap frustrations and the bottom gap / top gap dimensions then you have it made. Those are the most frustrating things about the Bib hangers. Within time it becomes second nature but I am sure many people quit because they just can’t get the wrap and the gap dimensions correct.

When I first bought the bib it intimidated the outta me. So I made an AFB and think that has taught me a lot and conditioned my unit so when I pulled the bib back out its been incredibly comfortable so far.

16 to 20 minute sets, 4 and 5 sets a session. Excellent circulation. I’ve moved up a half pound a couple days ago and my unit and ligs are definitely feeling the stretch and soreness I’ve been looking for. I’ll have to go to bib’s site and read some more on settings and I’ll have this bull by the horns or root.

That is just excellent to hear! Bib hangers definitely have a learning curve and even after you get it down the fine tuning adjustments never really stop, but when you get it just right it is awesome. I probably hit about one set in five that is perfect, the others are really good because I pretty much have much aadjustments down to a small range, but when it all comes together just right - wrapping tightness good, wrapping bundle positioning good, hanger tightness good, shaft positioned just right in the shaft well - I can hang my heaviest set for the day and not even notice the hanger is there; I’ll just feel the pull in my ligs and shaft.

Keep hanging!

Roots

I added the adhesive wrap and had to tweek the adjustsments a little but within 2 sets I was back in business. That was a couple days ago, now I have a small skin tear close to the base but not getting any worse. Been trip anti the hell out of it and gonna give it a couple more days before add a little weight.

I’m sure with the wrap and a few tweeks I could jump a pound or more but I’m getting some excellent fatigue at 4.2 lbs I think I’ll give it a little while maybe I can get the tear to heal up and get on with it.

Sorry got to rambling probably need to start a progress log.

Also I was reading a thread can’t remember which one, about gains from lig stretch. And inner penis, I’ve got an extremely high exit point and my palp test if I’m doing it right is giving me 3 1/2” of inner penis which I thought was a good thing after reading a lot on bib’s forum. I read where roots was saying maybe only .5 to .75 gain from lig. That’s kinda of bummer but still well worth the effort.

I searched lowered exit point but there’s to much to look through there and xeno’s the only one I’ve seen say he’s sure his exit point has dropped. Are there others that can testify to that?

Hanging in there.

I think these are important issues and feedback is good.

Upping the weight: you are right to be conservative if there are any doubts. I think hanging is all about being “conservatively aggressive.”

The skin tear: what do you mean by this? What does this skin tear look like?

Hanging in there.

My exit point has dropped. Visibly so. I should have measured from belly button to the top of my shaft when I first started, but I never did. Maybe I will do that on my next measurement day.

That .5” to .75” I agreed on was just a conservative average (read: a complete fucking guess). :) I think obviously some will gain more, some less, some a lot more, and some none at all from lig stretch. I just don’t believe, at least from the method I have proposed for lig gains, that someone is likely to gain a massive amount solely from lig elongation, on average. So don’t be discouraged, a very high exit point means the greatest possible amount of potential lig gains.

Also, I think the palpation test is a great way to feel things out, but I don’t know about Bib’s actual system of measurement for it. That is, the linear distance between the exit point and the base of the pubic bone. It will probably be somewhat less than this amount. So while I don’t think 3.5” will be likely, that is a HUGE palpation score, so I think your lig gains will still be significant. However, lig gains and tunica gains will almost always occur together, so you could possibly be close to this by the time you tap out your lig gains, but it will be a mixture of tunica and lig elongation. This is an educated guess, to say more would be utter speculation.

Syd 117 your exit point and palpation are very similar to me. Where I think my exit point might have dropped it could just as well be my imagination. I did take starting flaccid pictures in front of a mirror. It might be interesting to see if there is a noticeable difference when I am done with my hanging adventure.

With the skin tear you might want to drop down in weight if it becomes more of a problem. This is just to give it a chance to heal without aggravating it further. You definitely don’t want to stop hanging to let it heal. Then you lose all skin conditioning.

I also had a skin tear and other problems early in my hanging career. However, due to bad technique around January of this year I grew a lot of extra skin. Even though I didn’t want this the advantage has been I have been able to prevent any other skin tears.

In the future you might want to try to keep pulling skin back towards the base as you wrap. Then when you attach the hanger before you start tightening it try to pull some skin back towards the base from underneath the edge of the wrap. If you don’t have any extra skin this might not be possible.

If you continue having problems with skin tears and you just don’t have that extra skin to pull back you might want to dedicate a week or two to just skin stretching.

From what you have described I am going to guess that you are BTC hanging. Another option if the skin is painful and you are trying to wait for it to heal is to lessen the BTC angle if necessary even to the point of SD. This should reduce the tension at the base while allowing you to keep the skin conditioning that you have developed.

Skin tear : I’m guessing that’s what it is, happened couple days ago, just a spot where the shat and fat pad meet. Never blead, to much Vaseline on it. And I know I didn’t scratch it. Looks and feels like a rug burn. Neither me or my wife have any STD’s and hanging and some stretching is about the only thing I can think of that could’ve caused it.
When I get the hanger on and ease the weight on it burns a little then the burn goes away maybe a minute.

Thanks BH just saw your post. Like I said the tear is getting better for sure. I’m gonna give it a couple more days and if it gets better and I’m not getting the same fatigue level I’ll go up a half # or so.

Hmm. My skin tear actually was open skin. It could be you are just before that stage. Is it sensitive to the touch? Is is round or more of a straight line?

The burning is exactly the feeling when the skin is tight. Remember that well.

I am not positive but I think what has made my gains come fast is also what makes my skin so sensitive and even why my skin conditioning seems to subside after missing a couple days of hanging.

I have had skin that is flaky and peels off. Tons of stretch marks from the base on up. An ingrown hair was one of the worst things. I really can’t even remember some of the odd things.

Did you do any dedicated skin stretching in the beginning? If not this might become an issue. As you move up in weight the skin could end up being your weakest link.

That sounds like a friction burn. Although it is in a weird place for a friction burn to be. I get them sometimes on my frenulum if I jerk off too much with no lube. Doesn’t sound like a hanging issue, but sometimes hanging dries my skin out so maybe that could cause something like that. If it is not a rip it probably won’t be a huge issue. BH’s advice is good. If you need to, cut back the intensity, but don’t take time off unless you ABSOLUTELY need to. Loosing conditioning is a huge setback.

I’m hanging near the base right now ,well actually since I started using the bib. And I’m starting to see what looks like stretch marks. No flakey skin I’m pretty anal about the Vaseline. And when I’m done I wipe off the excess and start applying the triple antibiotic.

As far as tear I don’t see it more of a round spot half the size of an eraser. Maybe it’s a hair problem.

As long as I’ve been hanging off and on I’ve not noticed any real skin stretch or stretch marks but this bib has a hold on my unit I wasn’t getting with the AFB. I’m amazed at how this thing doesn’t move with the amount of vasoline I use. Shoulda tried switching to the bib six months ago, no telling where I could’ve been by now.

If it is a hair problem it will become painful. It will definitely be sensitive to the touch. Have you shaved your pubic hairs at the base recently?

What you are describing sounds very familiar. I am positive I have had that before. I just don’t remember if it was the development of an ingrown hair or something else.

Either way just monitor and do what you are doing.
