Putting the constriction sleeve on before hanging.
After spending 2 weeks out due to a water blister (See thread “Vac hanging head blister ergh”), I have decided I’m going to use a constriction sleeve NO MATTER WHAT now.
I didn’t use it before because it was quite difficult and fiddly to get on and I tended to rip them. I also believed that I could handle the weight and the vacuum. However after more recent tryouts with the newer model I have been able to get it on without a problem.
I’ll get to my point. In the online instruction area on monkeybar’s Autoextender he shows how to put on the constriction sleeve. It says to make sure there is NO AIR whatsoever in the sleeve at the tip of the head. (http://autoextender.com/constrictionsleeve.html).
I can manage this for the most part but how important is it? I can’t guarantee NO AIR, but I can see that most of it is out.
My other query is, should I be looking to cut the sleeve if it just about fits my head in it?
I mean, I have a lot of foreskin when I pull it behind my head, I assumed I include this in the packing of the sleeve or do I make sure it’s out. Though I can imagine this being VERY uncomfortable if it’s just my glans getting tugged on.
These queries may seem a little silly to some but I just want to make sure and get a little more info before jumping into it again.
Risking another blister and sitting out for 2 weeks is not my idea of fun and will seriously hamper my progress.
Thanks for any help.
