Steelworxx Revenge Review

Postby chaste » Mon May 28, 2012 5:39 pm

I received my Steelworxx today. I am going to do an initial review of the ordering process and my impressions of the device, but I will also be updating this thread over the next couple of weeks with further observations regarding long term wear, security, nocturnal erections, and my ability or inability to orgasm in the device without taking it off; all of those things are important with a device, and an initial review just isn't going to cover them.

I'll start off with my the actual measurements of my anatomy. I took all measurements with a fabric tape measure, and I measured countless times over the course of several weeks for optimal accuracy and to basically see what was normal and what was not.

I tried to measure in a "relaxed" state. For me, this means after coming home from work. My dick has just been hanging out in my pants all day in "normal" mode, without any stimulation, and this is the size of it I want to capture for the device.

My flaccid length is between 105-110mm
The circumference of my shaft is 103mm, or roughly 33mm diameter
The cirumference behind my balls is 146mm or roughly 47mm. I went as tight as I could with this measurement while holding the tape measure tightly around my balls and watching porn to purposely get a hard on. Anything tighter than 146mm was painful so would therefore be a problem with nocturnal erections.

I am uncut. No circumcision here. I also have a frenum piercing.

The hardware & actual device measurements

Model: Steelworxx Revenge

Overall Length: 95mm. I went a good 10-15mm shorter here because I figured a little smaller is always better. Most of my devices have been too long and have been unwearable as a result. I also figured every tube style device I've ever had has ridden down on my shaft a little and never sat exactly where it was supposed to.

Inside Diameter: 35mm. I went a little wider than my actual measurement because of the security insert I got, I figured that would take up a bit of room. I also would rather my erection fill out width wise rather than length wise.

A Ring: 47mm and 45mm. I went with a 47mm initially due to my measurements, but after reading extensively online through random websites, as well as this forum and thumper's blog, I decided to add a 45mm ring to my order in addition to the 47mm ring. I figured if the 45 was too tight, my 47mm would do the job, so I was covered either way.

Other modifications

* For security and a lower profile, I opted for the integrated locking mechanism.
* For added comfort, I got the ring around the opening of the tube. Called the "comfort ring" on the Steelworxx website
* Through experience with belts, and other metal devices, I am pretty sure I have a metal allergy, so I got the unit powder coated.
* To prevent pullout, I ordered a custom made frenum fixing.

I got a custom frenum fixing because there was nothing Dietmar really offers in the way of anti-pull out security for buyers with a frenum piercing. The only one that is supposed to work with a frenum piercing is basically an insert with a hook on the end that's supposed to hook onto the piercing's ring. This wasn't good enough for me, because I'm fairly certain the ring would just slip off, plus I don't want to wear a big ring inside my cage. It gets in the way, gets twisted, pulls on the piercing, etc.

I really liked the PA fixing, designed by thumper, but I wanted the fixing to actually go through my piercing itself and there's no way that would work. So I thought about it for several weeks and I decided to "design" a modified version. It's basically the exact same except one of the arms unscrews allowing the unit to pass through the piercing before being screwed back together. It is then inserted into the cage with the penis, and attached to the cage the same way the PA fixing does.

Ordering process

I don't mind saying that I took my sweet bloody time ordering this device. I began looking at steelworxx in November of 2011, and didn't end up initiating the process until late January 2012. I took my time for weeks after that, making sure my measurements were solid and that I had not missed anything or failed to address a concern. I placed my order on April 4th.

I found Dietmar a little difficult to speak with due to the language barrier, and very short with his answers obviously due to how busy he must be. This had me a bit worried because I feared something might get lost in translation or overlooked in a hurry, but he understood everything absolutely perfectly. His responses were fairly quick, there is quite a time distance between us but basically I would email him late at night and get a response back before noon the next day so it seems like he checks his email in the afternoon in his time zone.

Manufacturing and shipping

I was told it would be 5 weeks "inclusive of production of your order". So basically 5 weeks from the day I placed the order to the day it should show up at my door, if I understood that correctly. It actually took 8 weeks. I'm not sure what happened but after giving it the benefit of the doubt and waiting 6 weeks, I emailed him asking if the device had been shipped or not. He apologized and said it would be made that week and sent out express delivery (even though I had not paid for express). My best guess is that he got really busy and just forgot about it or couldn't get around to it quickly enough. It is not an issue for me, and I really appreciated the express delivery to make up for it. The device arrive about 2 weeks later (today).

Initial impressions

Basically, wow. I have purchased a lot of chastity devices over the past 6 years, and every one of them had so many problems that I really and truly was expecting there to be a whole host of problems with this device. In the days leading up to the device I was basically telling myself "Be prepared to be disappointed, chaste, because the following x number of things will probably be an issue with this device and you will certainly need to send it back once or twice for adjustments, at the least. Maybe you'll even need to have it entirely remade". Nope. Nope. Nope. I am happy to say I was wrong. It is exactly what I ordered and it's awesome, even the custom insert is perfect. The craftsmanship is amazing, and the powder coating finish looks gorgeous.

It is definitely smaller than what I am used to, but this is a good thing. In many devices I've owned in the past (Lori, cb3k) I've actually been able to jack the cage to orgasm. I cannot do that with this device being so small, and the custom insert actually holds my head in such a way that it helps to prevent it. The shorter length and the bend in the tube also help to prevent erections before they occur, so I can only get semi hard in this device. With previous devices, I could get fully erect. Overall, i might have gone a bit overboard with the sizing and probably should have gone between 100mm and 105mm, but it is not a problem so far.

I have actually only tried the smaller A ring on and it is what I am currently wearing. Remember this is the 45mm one where as I had originally ordered the 47mm. My initial impression is that it's great, very snug fit, fits like a glove, and day time hard ons are not an issue. Nocturnal erections will need to be thoroughly tested so I will certainly be coming back and updating this thread with how that turns out after a couple of days.

The insert was a stroke of genius, I don't mind saying. There's no way I can take the insert out once the device is put together and locked on. There's no way I can pull out of the back of this device what so ever as it's threaded directly through my piercing. The cage and my cock are one unit. It also had the unexpected benefit of holding back my foreskin. Being uncut, this tends to be a really good thing as swelling of the foreskin has been an issue in the past. The piercing itself is doing fantastic. It was a good call to get something that allowed me to rid myself of the piercing jewelry, and I don't feel the insert in my penis at all. It's like it's not even there.

I have owned a cb3000, cb6000, The Curve, a Neosteel hip belt, a Lori's #7, a Houdini, a pair of chastity shorts (purchased early on for short term wear periods), and even attempted to make my own full steel belt. I can say, unequivocally, this is by far the best device I have owned. If nocturnal erections and swelling are not an issue over the next several days, I am basically screwed. Or, not screwed, which ever way you want to think of it.

I am going to post a whole pile of pictures soon. I apologize in advance for the quality as they were taken with my camera phone.

Congratulations on the new device, I look forward to hearing how it works out over the next couple of weeks.

I am really intrigued by the fixing you designed. If I get a piercing it will probably be a frenum so this is what I will need. I hope it works out.

That was probably a good idea to get two rings, I have at least two rings for every device I own. I have needed them at some point too.

Sorry guys, pics are coming soon I promise. I have been really busy so could not post them yet. I would right now but, well, it's 5am and my phone is by my bed with my sleeping wife who will be very angry if she's awoken just so I can post pictures on the internet. I will see about posting them tonight or even in the morning. I have some more to take anyway.

I just wanted to post a progress update as promised.

After 72 hours and 2.5 nights in the device, there are some significant problems. It appears that nocturnal erections are causing some serious swelling issues, and there is pretty much nothing I can do to stop it. Nocturnal erections, because of this reason, have woken me up every night and it's getting to the point where the pain is no longer tolerable. The swelling seems to be directly caused by the insert itself because of how tightly packed everything is in there and the way the penis sits with the insert. It might also have to do with the fact that I'm not circumcised. None the less, I still think I'm onto something with this insert, but at this point, I'm thinking something that goes outside of the cage and connects in with the piercing through the holes in the bars at the head might be better for security vs comfort than something that's actually inside of the cage.

I'm going to discontinue use of the insert for the time being and just use the cage as is (unsecured) while I figure something else out insert-wise. I'd like to see how the cage holds up otherwise (sans insert) during the night and if there are any swelling issues without the use of the insert.

It's not all bad though. I'm still really impressed with this device and I think with some smart modifications it will definitely be the winning device for me. Day time wear comfort is actually even more comfortable than my cb6000, and I didn't think anything was going to compare to that. I barely notice it's there and can definitely understand why some people forget they're wearing theirs or feel naked taking it off. The device has a very low profile mostly due to how it hangs and curves inwards, so it's really not noticeable under clothes at all (unless you were wearing something really tight). With a lot of devices I've had, I've felt very self-conscious about them and covered my crotch often. I felt like people could tell, even though they probably couldn't. I don't have that problem with this device. I haven't done a lot of physical activity in the device, but I really don't foresee if being an issue. Jacking off in the cage is definitely not a problem; I attribute this mostly to the sizing of the device, there's just not enough room to wiggle the cock around when erect.

I tried both rings during night time to see how each worked, and the smaller 45mm ring causes blue-ball pain during nocturnal erections. Took it off first night. It's fine during the day, but those nocturnal erections are so much more powerful it's unbearable; so it's out of the question as far as being wearable goes... which is a real shame because I like it far better for day time wear than the larger ring. The larger 47mm ring is fine for day time wear and causes no pain during nocturnal erections. I might actually have Dietmar build a 46mm ring to see if that causes the same night time pain, I feel if the 45mm ring was just a bit bigger it might be alright.

With the insert in, security is also pretty awesome so far as I haven't been able to defeat the mechanisms so as long as I get that last problem solved, I'm good to go.

Sorry to hear this. I hope you get it worked out.

I've been trying to say this about my Steelheart for a long time. I just don't have to worry about it any more.

Once you have the other issues worked out this is a good idea. When you start to get close the limit on how small you can go a 1mm difference in diameter can make a really big difference. I have 40 and 41mm rings for mine and they are completely different during nocturnal erections. To look at them it is hard to even tell them apart. I hold them up to each other back to back to determine which is smaller. Even then I have to look straight in from both sides to verify. I did the math on the difference in area between the two and it was pretty significant, 64 mm^2 for my size rings. That is about the same area as a pencil. Doesn't seem like much unless you look at it at 4:00am :)

Thanks for the update, please continue to let us know how it is working out.

I have yet to find away to handle this after 3 years in a device, it is so bad that CQ removes this every night we are together. When I am away on business I can deal with it by getting up and working in the hotel room or watching the TV. At home this disturbs CQ so is not an option.

Those of you that can a cage and tolerate erections... I envy you but the sheer change in size is too great for me. :cry:

Chaste.. I hope you get it sorted.

Hey Chaste,
Did you ever post further to this thread?

I'd be interested in hearing how your frenum piercing worked out and whether your modifications were workable in the end - I've been thinking along similar lines myself.
