    Optimal tugging tension

    Hi. I'm fairly new to restoring and was wondering what is the best amount of tension to use. I've heard that about a pound is good but that doesn't seem like enough.

    Just to bump this post with something I found on NORM.ORG that is very useful (Sorry for the big copy paste earlier Ron)

    Moderate cyclical tension propagates more cells than constant excessive tension. Several factors seem to be involved. The microbiological studies demonstrate that cyclical tension is more cell productive than constant tension. Studies of exercising and muscle gain (body building) indicate that exercise every other day produces more muscle than daily exercise. Rhythmic cycling of the body, sleep and exercise patterns seem to be essential to good health.

    Both personal restoration achievements and correspondence from thousands of men over the last ten years, attest to the results of cyclical tension (the foreskin under tension for a period of time, and then resting for a period of time) for best results. Constant "24 hours a day" tension does not tend to produce the quickest results.

    It appears from all this evidence that a good fast production regime is to apply moderate tension (8-14 oz) for 10-12 hours a day, and then for the remainder of the day, use a retainer to keep the glans covered. Five days a week seems also to be acceptable for results. The tension need only be five days a week while awake. To 'force' yourself to a 24 hour 7 day a week regimen is counter productive for several reasons
    They suggest 8-14 ounces here, for 10 to 12 hours a day. This seems like great advice. NORM.ORG

    The long skinny type balloons used to make the animal shapes themselves. I use condoms as the balloon though, below is a pic of me doing the setup.

    The password is restore. This technique is not an idea on mine btw, it's from a user named "Regrow".

    When I use the Tlc x I use them with the tlc selects and the pusher with the strap. I think the spring setup make it cumbersome to reapply.

    You can try inflation BTW, it does gives me the tension push I need and is Bi directional. I just use a animal balloon and a wide YSC.

    This is the setup I am using==> https://foreskinrestoration.vbulleti...-and-a-balloon

At this point is appears that I will need to continue to use a leg strap to get the necessary outer skin tension...don't see any other way at this time...I am combining the leg tug with two inner springs for inner skin pull however and it is not damaging the head of the glans. I was manually applying too much inner tension at first...hey don't we all...live and learn.

    When I ordered my TLC X I also ordered an additional 2 rods that are longer just for that purpose. With the skin I've grown, the shortest rod no longer works for me.

    right off the bat I need a longer rod if I was to use rubber bands... the collet hits top of the metal holder. I would say I like to feel the tension, not painfully but know it is tensioning. I may just have to live with a strap and manual tension...Maybe if I had an even longer rod than came with the X the rubber bands would work...I can't be the only one experiencing this...right?

    Thank you Parseckin, I will put that on the list to try...

    Thank you, a learning curve so I will tame it eventually. I have went to manually pushing the rod and locking the collet and tugging in the leg... I can get some good inner & outer tension that way, but of course using a strap again ...experimenting.
    I will of course try the spring and rubber bands...
