a272 and a271 length

Post by kunst » Fri Sep 21, 2018 3:12 pm

Hello
I have a Steelworxx revenge 70mm long. I would like to try something shorter.
I could not find tube length of a272 and a271, any information and/or advice on which to buy?
Thanks

Ah, ok! Thanks.
Actually I was wrong, my revenge is 65, not 70.
Therefore I think it is worth trying the A271, since the other is too similar to mine.
I have read in many places that shorter is better. Just wondering how will I enter in such a device when horny....
Will give a try, for that price.

Please consider the measurement difference between Steelworxx Revenge and A271/272 too. Steelworxx uses total lenght including the gap and the base ring as definition of their measurement. Chinese manufacturers usually measures only the cage length. I think A272 is longer than your Revenge (If you ordered your device as 65 mm long), A271 may be about same as your Revenge, if you calculate gap and base ring too, over 60 mm almost certainly.

No problem, it is really cheap, compared to the Revenge. I have ordered A277 (instead of A271), which is same length. It has the same shape of the Revenge, I do not like the other. I spent about 1/20 of the Revenge, of course I do not expect same quality.

p.s. I am restarting chastity after a long pause, it is very hard to restart!

Hello,
finally it has arrived. I tried it, and even if it is very cheap I am very disappointed. In fact, the base gap is far too large. My left ball popped out as soon as I become flaccid. I think I can throw it away.... however, the length seem perfect. Unfortunately my revenge, which is constructed very well, is a bit too long.

Have you tried some subtle bending to fix the problem ? Better that than babies and bathwater ? You can't expect everything to be perfect and the gap is something none of the cheap models tend to worry about. I've done work on most cheapos figuring if i break the in the process it's no big deal but so far no breakages !!

I have bent almost all my cheap devices too. You can bend it even without the vice, just compressing the gap by your bare hands. Just remember to swap the lock with a normal bolt when adjusting. If you bend the device with the lock inserted, the lock can stuck when the geometry changes. When the gap is right, pull the bolt out and try with the lock and adjust everything with the pliers until the lock slides correctly in. This can take several minutes and tries, but eventually it will work. If you want to minimize the work, you can slide the square tab part of the lock to the groove of the device (The lock is outside the device and upside down, only the square part contacts the device) when the bolt is inserted that the lineup of the groove can't change when bending. If the adjustment is very large, you'll have cut down the two aligning pins (that contacts the base ring) shorter or the device won't bend. You may even use a file to shorten them.

I full-on agree with this. The advantage of DH Gate (and equivalent) is price, the disadvantage is customization. I use a block of wood, a rubber mallet, and a digital micrometer when doing adjustments. Measure the gap on your Steelworxx and make the A277 match it. With every adjustment, be sure to check the lock still seats—just like Loxx said.

Good luck!
