  • Help! "TLC Packer vs TLC Tugger for gentle tensioned retaining"

    Hi I have the TLC X-extendible kit and a regular Your Skin Cone. I also am planning to purchase the TLC packer with a side cone to apply gentle tension when retaining. I am kinda worried of the TLC Packers handle as they are kinda small......are they durable? With the TLC Tugger body looks more robust and strong but there is that big metal handle that may interfere when I sleep with it while retaining

    I may be planning in the future to use the TLC Packers with weights or even with straps. Since Packers are quicker in terms of convenience, they can be cleaned quickly and apply quicker than the TLC X with the spacers and pusher.

    So what do you think ?.......have you guys used TLC Packers with straps or weights, did it hold with gentle tension?

    Are the TLC Packers comfortable to use when retaining? (I tug 12 hours a day so the rest of the day is for retaining)

    Is the application of the TLC Packer harder and/or slower than the TLC Tugger ? (since the Packer has the smaller handle)

    I use a standard TLC as a retainer at night. Seems to work pretty well. The packers aren't much different.

      You can also buy deeper pushers for the TLC-X which might also have the packing effect you're looking for with fewer parts. Realistically, you will need to upsize a few mm maybe every few months so I think buying packers one after another will get kind of expensive.

        If you have a lot of slack then it's good to use a Packer with the Your-Skin Cone when you're not tugging. Such a Packer can be longer if erections are not expected.

        They are durable. Like Tugger handles, they are tested to hold 20 pounds briefly. Note that all Packer profiles are also available with the Tugger handle; they're called Stretch Tuggers: http://tlctugger.com/?s=tlc+stretch+...t_type=product

        Exactly, which is why we make the Packer version.

        The regular Tugger does help with leverage for application.

          Thx everybody for the input. Mjwise I think I can creative when it come too that. Some cosmetic sponges can do the trick

          I think I'll get the longest you have (24mm) I've been experimenting with 26mm worth of packers and a spacer, getting erections finding its okay hanging aroud with zero tensioning from straps.

          I'm glad to hear the spacers handle is robust too.
