Tips for Restorex?
« on: April 06, 2018, 10:22:59 PM »

Hey guys,

I am new to restorex. I have a 5.5 inch stretched flaccid length with my bend at about 3 inches from the top of my penis. I started to use it, but I find the clamp a bit painful at first. I am not sure how far I should clamp it safely? What I am mostly looking for is some tips on starting off and maybe some pitfalls that youve encountered. I always have one hand on the restorex when it is spring loaded and locked down...I feel like if that spring went loose it would be goodbye dick!

I also havent allowed it to go to full tension yet because it feels like a lot of pull for me so I am trying to ease into it.

Any help would be beneficial thanks!

I’ve found when it isn’t clamped tight enough it slips out rather slowly, never had it snap out do to speak.  It took me several weeks to get to maximimum stretch.  I’d recommend following the restorex schedule on how long each day.  I pushed it but def eased into it.  I’m up to an hour at a time, but restorex recommends 30 min on, 30 min off before beginning again.  I really prefer the restorex as it is a consistent good stretch.

Is everything set up to accommodate all your measurements? The clamp has 3 height adjustments, as three others for the location of intended area of curve to correct. The height screws are tiny. Make sure the height is  set up so it clicks at least twice. The more even it locks, the less pinching you'll have on one side.

Remove the clamp and place your penis in it while it's unattached from the rest of the device. Notice the raised ridges on the clamp. That's where your glans should line up with. Wrap the glans twice.

With the body locked, place the clamp back in. Pull some of the scrotal tissue(plumbing from the scrotum to the penis) through the grove at the bottom of the ring.

Maybe practice with it for a week or so just straight stretching and making sure everything is comfortable. Ease into proper tension after you're comfortable with the device.

To avoid worry about it unlocking, figure out how to advance it using both hands, as if the device couldn't lock. It's difficult to explain but it's really simple. I'd hold it down and use my index fingers and thumbs to move it forward a notch.

If you don't have any pain when erect or in general, you shouldn't while wearing the device. Just focus on comfort. Takes some getting used to, but super quick once you get it down.

Yeah, I think that since my curve is lower and closer to my body, the tension is pretty high starting off. still above the white line, but more than I am used to with the PMP. It is at the lowest tension so I need to hold it down with my hand a bit and slowly lift over the course of a few minutes. Im going to ease my way into the white mark. Also, how tight do you wrap your dick? I find that if I wrap it loosely I get pain from friction from the wrap.

Hey guys... As I was reading this I was thinking... Are there any YouTube videos yet, about people using the device? I know it's quite new but... Gotta check that out. Maybe it's a bit of a stretch, but tSanchez and whatnext could do some instructional videos on the device!

I’d go with whatever wrap tightness is comfortable...I haven’t had any problems w it. A you tube video sounds great, I could supply some pics if that’s helpful to anyone who can do it, just PM me.

Swiss-I take it you're using the shorter rods? And even at the first notch it's too much starting off? I think you said you measured 5.5" flaccid. It might just be a mental thing as you have more length than the minimal needed to use it. Is it just feeling of too much tension that you're not used to? Or are you getting pinching or discomfort? If so, where? Are you laying down, sitting, etc while wearing it? I had a good amount of plaque near the base as well.

As far as friction with the self-adheasive wrap, yes, wrap it as snug as you can making sure you can wear it for 30 mins while doing traction. Don't pull your penis while wrapping. I wrapped mine so there were no gaps, at the end of my penis, between the self adheasive wrap and the penis.

-Wrap it so there's no friction caused by loose tape.
-Your penis doesn't slip away from the tape.-Not to be confused with the clamp not being tight enough.
-Wrap it as if you are making it tailored fit for your penis, avoiding any bunching, loose gaps, etc.

how do you guys know for sure where to counter-bend via the Restorex? What if you counterbend at the wrong place?

It's all in the instructions on how to set it up. You take measurements according to the instructions and it walks you through on how to make the adjustments to the device. You only have to do the setup once.

Whatnext- I think it probably is a mental thing as I am a bit overly cautious. I think my dick tenses up when I try to get it full stretch. But yeah I'm a little scared to increase the tension so I will do so slowly as time goes on and Work up to the white line

With time the stretch really increases, I have to add the longer rods now after a couple months of use.

Interesting that flaccid stretch has increased but not boned size. Any tips for having it not slip out? That's my current issue with it at this moment. Is there a better tape I can use?

Thanks!

I use OTC walgreens 2” self adhesive (does not adhere to skin).  Still need to remove carefully.  I generally wrap x3, I reuse the wrap as it sticks to skin less w time.

How much below the glans do you wrap it? Do you wrap it pretty tight?

Full wrap around glans x3, then overlap somewhat and wrap around top of shaft x3.

Do you leave the tip not wrapped? That's the only part that gets purple after a session, the Meatus swells a bit for a few minutes after. I'm also getting some slippage with the tape. If I wrap it to tight it's hard to clamp down, too loose I get some slippage/ pain from friction. Thoughts? How far do I clamp it in? Right now I'm just clamping the glans only any not passed the glans at all.

It actually managed to rub off some skin and draw some blood from the bandage slippage during the pull. There has got to be some kind of better wrap than this that's not gonna slip and cause this kind of issue....I'm not circumcised so the skin is very soft and sensitive. Does anyone know what grams pull equivalent on the PMP that the restorex is set to? Can anyone find that out for me if this thing doesnt work out? Sort of disappointed in drawing blood...don't typically like my skin getting rubbed off though I will keep going with it for the duration of the 30 day money back guarantee they have.
 

Update: Just got off with a rep and he said I dont have to wrap it...so I am going to give that a shot. Fingers crossed. Also, for reference, the restorex has 3lbs of pull aka 1060 grams or something like that.

I sometimes clamp the head and part of the shaft to hold it more securely.

Yeahhhh after a few days of use I think the restorex isn't for me. I'm gonna keep trying with the PMP but at higher tensions -960grams instead of the restorex's 1050grams of pull. I feel like I may get similar results with less time in the device. The restorex is a dope device and I'm really bummed but I find the PMP more comfortable.

RestoreX is around 3lbs with the white line just not visable. If you really bury it, it's around 6lbs. I used the Walgreens stuff and it didn't stick at all and made it very uncomfortable. I returned the wrap. Walmart sells rolls of 2" wide wrap that is rather spongy and has a cushion feel to it. It's not a Walmart brand. $5 for a two pack. It sticks better than the 3m wrap. I liked it better than the 3m stuff that came with the device.

Since it's thicker, I only wrapped it twice. Since it's 2" wide, it covers the glans and far enough down on the shaft without having to get creative to wrap it.

I would avoid clamping on the shaft as much as possible. Clamp it down just behind the top of your head, so the glans sit on the groove/lip that you can see on the clamp. Wrap it without stretching your penis. This was the most comfortable way for me. With the thicker wrap, I had to adjust the height of the clamp.

Things I noticed. Thin wrap and less sticky wrap made it pinch, slip and hurt. I started with the short rods. When I got the wrap thing down, and comfortable with the device I was using the long extension rods and could stretch to 6 visable notches. I think that would be 8 notches extended out as some notches are not visable. I kept track by counting the visable ones after I was done and had the device off. I was able to stretch it with no discomfort. If there was some, I'd adjust how it was sitting on my pelvis, arrange my scrotum, etc. Laying down worked best for me. I'd used a bunched up blanket for it to rest against to take some pressure off the testies. Some days I couldn't stretch it as far. Or would just do 30 mins a day if my dick just wasn't feeling it.

I spent time easing into it and went much slower than the instructions called for. Hopefully you didn't just jump right into 30 min sessions. I wore it for 10 mins at a time while getting it down. I also wasn't in a rush as I had some time before I started xiaflex.

It does lengthen your errect size. There's even a way to measure your errect length while flaccid. I had mine measured while flaccid at an appointment.

The white line being visable is the least amount of tension. The further you bury it, the more tension is being applied. In the instructions it says to advance when the white lines become visible. That's because tissue has expanded and you advance to the next notch on the extension rods to bury the white line again to apply more force/tension. Perhaps you started out the hard way?

1st day with Restorex........and I can tell you this thing is easily one of the best devices I have tried.  It seems like it is providing max tension, no noose to deal with, and was a pretty easy set up.  I am hoping this yields some results in a few months

Pretty bummed it didn't work for me. ☹️ does anyone bury it to 6lbs? It seems like that's asking to get injured? I think it's just recommended to be past the white line.

USed it for the first time today.  10 minutes straight and 3 minutes bent down.  I can't imagine being able to pull it so far forward that the white line disappears, my skin felt like it was ripping.  Does the white line disappear just by moving it up the notche? It seems like it was not moving easily on the tension rods..

I was instructed to really bury the white line. Ease into it and listen to your body.

I did ... It seems that as i increase tension the white line doesnt move, hence the painful pinching on the skin.  I can push the clamp back and the white line disappears, and the tension lowers, but that isnt how it should work.  The clamp just doesn't move the easy as the tension increases.  I am going to play around a little to see if I can get used to it.  Probably call the company on Monday. Also trying to figure out where the glans should be.  Right now I have if fully inside the clamp with the valley between the glans and shaft 1/2 way in.  Everything feel fine after use, except the glans is a bit sore
