DHGate A271

My A271 arrived today from China...got it quick, too! Ordered on July 4th, so only 8 days to the US, not bad at all. Wife told me I could try it out, so removed the Looker 3, showered and into the A271.

As of a few hours in, pretty nice device for about 12 bucks! It definitely doesn't have the fit and finish of a Steelworxx device, but obviously it's only a tiny fraction of the price. I went with the 40mm ring which is pretty tight compared to the 42mm I usually wear with my 2 Steelworxx devices. That said, it seems pretty comfortable and seems to stay in place well. I'll update this as I wear the A271.

I thought I got a great deal on my A272 for $30 with shipping. I see the prices have come down a bit.

Personally, I think that the 271/272 are the best CB3000/6000 replacements out there.

I've ordered a few items from DHgate and the quickest I've received anything is 2.5 weeks. 8 days is amazing.
Good luck with your A271. Love mine variant A273.

I was let out last night, so I didn't sleep in the A271. I wore it for maybe 6-7 hours without any issues. Squeezing through the ring was a bit harder than I'm used to. I'm going to be a geek and pull out the digital caliper and measure the device. It's the first one I've owned with an oval/anatomical shape. I may even break down and order the next size up being a $12 cage!

I do wonder if the narrowness of the ring will be a problem with morning wood, etc. Don't want my bits turning blue!

On the CB3000, I preferred the 1-7/8 (1.875) ring, but ended up making my own at 1.812, since the 1-3/4 (1.750) felt too constricting.

But on these ring, I found the 45mm (1.77) to be a good fit. I think it's because the base is wide so there's more surface area, and it doesn't feel like it's cutting into me. I'm tempted to one say order the 42 MM size (1.65) to see if therebis a little less slippage in the hot weather. I guess I should have done it a month ago.

Mine is the same as the A271. It is the most comfortable device I have ever worn. The "arc" ring stays in place and doesn't move. Not even any transitory pain or discomfort at all. I have ordered a smaller base ring and some spare locks in that they look like the weal link in this device. As I have posted before, not all of these devices available on DHgate are the same. The quality, fit, and finish of a second one I ordered was no where close to the first one, but it was half the price. I guess you get what you pay for in these devices.

I tried to sleep in the A271. I woke up around 2:00am with significant pain around the lower portion of the base ring. While the device works well during the day, I think the combination of the smaller 40mm ring and it's thicker profile is just too small for me for sleeping. I switched into the Steelheart and will probably switch again into my Looker before bed.

I'm kinda bummed, because the A271 seems to work well...until nocturnal erections happen. The next ring size I see on DHGate website is 45mm, which I suspect may be too big, though might be worth a try. I'm usually in 42mm rings with both my Steelworxx devices, though those are round, thinner tubular rings as opposed to the flatter/wider A271 ring, so maybe 45mm would be just about right? :?:

Has anyone seen a 42 or 43mm base ring for the A271? I've done some searches on DHGate and can only seem to find 40, 45, and 50mm.

For that particular style of cuff ring, I've only seen 40, 45, and 50 mm. I had ordered sever other ring styles, but they don't fit.

You're talking less than 1/8" here. You could order the 40 mm, and wear it during the day, and switch to the larger one at night, and gradually work down to it. Or, since it's summer, spend more time in the heat, and less in the AC.

That's what I thought...just those 3 ring sizes. For another $11, I just ordered another A271 with 45mm ring. The 40mm ring is great during the day, so maybe the 45mm will work at night.

I'm a chastity geek, and do like changing up my cages. Can't wear the Looker 3 everyday after all!
