I have been using the blue sleeves doubled up for a few months now with good results. I was hanging 15lbs until I got a blister and ended up taking 6 weeks off. Now I’m back at it with 11lbs.
Interesting conversation between Sparky and Girtha on whether the shape of the end cap can cause, or help prevent blisters. What is the best shape? I have thought about this often. Monkeybars round design is comfortable, but I always get my blisters in the same spot…right at the tip. If I could spread out the area with a flatter surface, would it help alleviate blisters. And also, would it allow me to hang more weight? Right now with Monkeys hanger, if I hang too much weight I get a stinging feeling right at the tip of my head. Just have others have complained about. That is obviously where are the pressure is accumulating. However, if I splint the tip of my penis with something flat, that pain goes away and I can hang a few more pounds. Right now I am leaning more towards a flatter surface. I do however, think you want to get ALL the air out of your cap so that you have direct contact with the hanger. Other wise your going to end up with the same thing…all the pressure compiling to the furthest point, or at the tip of your penis. This causes pain, blisters, and limits how much weight you can hang. What do you guys think?
