Well, I pulled the trigger and ordered both the 272 and the 274, so I'll have a solid tube and a flat ring cage to experiment with.

I also ordered a mini cage because it was essentially the same price as ordering a spare flat ring.

I received the orders. I don't have much to report yet, except that I took the cuff ring off the mini cage and sawed off the locking protrusion (milled, ground, filed, sanded, and polished afterward). It's a cast or formed 304 stainless, and was a PITA to cut, but I wanted to try it out simply to wear as a cock ring.

The cuff ring is surprisingly ergonomic; this is not the device, but it's a better view of the ring:

The ring is not circular, and the shape is (for me, anyway) pretty comfortable. I don't have any report on the devices yet, although the one with the flat rings looks a little smaller in diameter than I expected. Both that one and the tube seem to be decently made, no obvious weld globs or sharp edges.

Well, I've been so happy with theC-272 solid tube model that I haven't had a chance to try out the open ring version. I finally had a chance last weekend to try the C-274. It lasted two days.

Nothing broke, and the flat style rings were surprisingly comfortable. The first day and night were just fine for comfort, and I used the same cuff ring as the C-272. The problem happened after taking a shower in the morning with Mrs Edge, which made me a little, umm, aroused. Like the model that I bought lest year with round style rings, my tender bits extruded from the rings like Play-Doh, and kept pinching me after I put on some pants to work around the yard. After a few hours, there was still some edema and swelling, so I had to switch back to the solid tube.

I think that if I welded a couple of 1/8" steel rods over the top of the rings it would work out well. Unfortunately, that's one skill that I haven't tried yet. I may have to pick up a cheap little welder and try some of these ideas that I keep coming up with. I could braze them on, but welding would probably be neater.

So far the C-272 (without the pictured ball separator) is still the best device that I've tried in years.

Adding two (actually 4) horizontal bars at the large gap at the end is exactly what MCN did for the modified CD in use now. Vast improvement.

I've been wearing this version (minus the dreaded ball separator) with the integrated lock for about 3 months now. http://www.dhgate.com/product/new-arriv ... 1098336029

There is a good bit of truth in the saying that "shorter is more comfortable."

Like the previous device that I gave a short review on, this cage is almost "just right" out of the box. I took a pliers and squeezed the front vertical bars a bit closer together and smoother the edges of the base ring a bit with a Dremel tool and it may now be my favorite device. I haven't had my custom cage out of the drawer since the beginning of March.
