I mentioned on another forum how water hanging was so comfortable that I was tempted to fall asleep wearing it lol. That was at 4lbs but now that I’m at 5lbs I am having some difficulty with it.
I put it on in the bath, just more convenient. When it’s under water I get an airtight seal but as soon as I try to hang with it, it seems like the air gets in from the sleeve. I believe it’s because when I stretch my unit gets really thin so it’s not providing a tight enough seal. I’ve tried using the small and medium cylinders and shorter and longer sleeves to the same effect. I have one more idea which is to use a second sleeve over the first sleeve to create a tighter seal. I came really close to just giving up on length and focusing on girth instead but for the time being I am back to using the vacuum cone and it’s not too bad.
That’s odd I’ve never had a leak problem, you could try the sleeve over the cone as monkeybar suggests ?
I also find the hanger gets a much better initial grip if I put it on with a good semi.
