The problem with the holy trainer (real or fake) is it is not adjustable at all though you can gets different size a-rings and cages. The cb6000s is adjustable out of the box and should last for your purposes. FWIW i have split two HT3 nub tubes (both real not knock offs) and i never split the Cb6000s i had originally !!

I am currently in a CB-3000, it is almost 20 years old. Sure, it has separated at the seam twice, but it was an easy fix with superglue. Two of the hinged rings broke but I mended them with JB Weld (looks ugly, but it works), one of the mended rings broke a few days ago (in a different spot). I thought it was 'expensive' when I bought it but I've got my money's worth out of it...and that works out to less than one dollar a year.

When the Mrs. takes a notion to lock me up, it's usually 24/7 for 18 months or more. Right now she has been making me go 3 months between releases. Sure, it feels a little 'clunky', but that has become part of the eroticism. I think that any time you put a ring around your junk and lock a 'cage' to it it's going to feel a little 'clunky', no matter what brand or type it is, that's just the nature of it- your balls are squeezed together and pushed a bit forward, and then you add the bulk of the cage to it.

It takes a while to become accustomed to being 'locked up'. Give it time, experiment with the rings and spacers until you find the combination that works for you- once you've got that figured out, you can begin evaluating other options, and you'll have a much better idea of what is going to work for you.

I have been looking at the holy trainer, the vice and the riker. The rings on these seem to be more ergonomic? I wonder if it is the ring on the CB that is causing me so much grief? I am not experienced enough to know...
I am prepared to keep persisting with the CB, but even just the other day I ended up taking it off to give things a rest.
Maybe I have it all wrong, but I would have expected that the feeling of being locked up would be noticeable, but not where is is giving a dull ache. The past couple of days I have found myself trying to move the testicles down while it's on, as well as trying to rotate the device to get a bit more comfort.
Not sure if I just have it all wrong here?

The important thing to note is that your mileage WILL vary.

I started off with a hinged round ring which was super uncomfortable and even though the hinge itself was covered by a silicone ring to avoid pinching, it moved around so I still got pinched, just not by the hinge itself but by the silicone wrap moving around and catching the skin on the underside of my testicles between it and the cage ring.

Moved on to a CB6000s knockoff, it was a bit better but like you, I found it more than just "noticeable", it was actively uncomfortable and really hard to imagine long-term wear. The pain was mostly isolated to the underside of my testicles again, so I ended up looking at the Holy Trainer precisely because the design of the ring seemed more befitting my anatomy (here is where it's clear that different people have different balls, as many find the CB-style better).

When the CB6kS knockoff broke in the seam, I opted to get it exchanged for the HTv3s, and that turned out to be a great decision. It was immediately far more comfortable, and unlike a lot of people have reported (here as well), the part of the cage that extends "back" into the body did not bother me at all after the first or second day. Bending down to tie my shoelaces was a bit of an issue sometimes as it "dug in" but otherwise it was OK, and the ring itself was definitely a billion times better.

The HTv3 Small had other problems - namely, the peeing slot caught a lot of my foreskin, especially after erections it would poke through and then drag against my underwear, causing discomfort ranging anywhere from mild "tickle" to painful chafing and pulling. The slot itself wasn't finished properly and had mildly sharp edges, I filed it off but it was never perfect. Nonetheless, I have had it (on and off) for almost half a year I think and it never broke.

I ended up moving into a steel Chinese device from DHGate which had the same ergonomic ring design, a larger peeing hole and I couldn't be happier (plus it was cheaper than both the CB and HT knockoffs). This wasn't because I'd be unhappy with the HT but because the plan was to move to a nearly permanent arrangement where I would not have the keys and would not be able to take it off for cleaning as often. Which in the HT is an issue (very hard to clean without taking it off).

By the way, the HTv3 knockoff seemed to be of a very nice finish to me, I've put it through its paces for months. The CB knockoff split during a particularly strong erection after some teasing, the HT has undergone some serious teasing itself and nothing wrong ever happened.

When it comes to the closed ring - it doesn't feel like it, but using a bit of lube you can go exactly as someone else described here. Pull only the skin, or just 1 ball through the ring, then pull in as much skin as possible and get the ring all the way up the scrotum (at this point, your other ball will probably be "inside" you, at least that's what happens to me). At that point, I _gently_ try to push the remaining ball in. After a while of aligning, it sort of "plops" in easily, almost automatically, with no pain. If I tried to force it it'd hurt like hell, but if I align it properly it ends up falling in naturally.

This is my humble advice. Cb6000s is perfect for me. I have it for 2 years. I made these little changes to it: I glued the back piece and the center pin together; then I glued the front piece and the spacer together. I added a rubber band around the tube shaft to strengthen it and prevent splitting. I wear a woman’s hair elastic band on my hip, to keep it close to my body and prevent “low hanging”. It took few weeks to try different spacers and pins, but I found the right combination, it worked out very well. I wear men’s bikini underwear for good support and concealment. I don’t feel comfortable wearing jockstrap in my office. Bulging never will be a problem and assembling it will be easier for you. I dislike solid rings as all eroticism vanishes when one struggles to remove it. I respect everyone else’s opinion. Best wishes.

Thanks again for sharing thoughts on this.
I never thought about gluing parts of the CB together. Thanks! I will need to get the combo right though before I do that.
I'm not sure what's happening with the left testicle though. Never have an issue with the right one. I do wonder whether it is the ring on the CB causing the problems? It would be interesting to try on a CB with a more ergonomic ring. Maybe they could offer a ring (open) similar to holy trainer, where it is more ergonomic?
After doing some research, I keep seeing comments that the holy trainer is by far the better device?
I would never throw away the CB, but wearing something more comfortable and less bulky would be good.

i suspect most men have testicles that are different sizes and shapes much in the way women tend to have different sized breasts and a lot of people have different sized feet. i definitely have a larger right testicle than my left and this causes rotation of the cage and makes me susceptible to losing one testicle through the gap. I’m now, after 6 years of every device imaginable, looking again at a hinged device to try and find something small enough to stop me falling out the back but big enough to not be painful. So far i’ve failed with a device that was great for stopping falling out but ended up causing a blister under my scrotum so I’m currently, for the first time in years, cage free while i heal. i have a bigger version of another s/s hinged ring device on order from China but of course everything is very slow there because of the virus scare. my point is that you need to try different things until you find what works for you now, later you will probably change and try something else and so on. In the end i’ve found that cheap Chinese knockoffs make good trial platforms and you may we’ll find something in there that’s a keeper ... for a while anyway !!

I had same problem with my “high riding” short scrotum. I have used snug briefs for over 40 years, so my junk doesn’t hang low, like an “old man’s”. Best combination for me: 2nd largest ring, shortest pin and shortest spacer. If you wear the elastic band around your hip to keep device attached to your body and tight underwear, there will be no bulge and no escapes. I added transparent tape to both sides of urinary outlet to prevent “turtling” and unpleasant abrasions. Make sure to push your junk well down when sitting to pee, to prevent splashing accidents. I wear panty liners for hygiene and block urine odor, although I always wipe. To decrease lock bulge use plastic numbered locks; they cost 1 dollar, and easily cut, should an emergency take place. I am scared of having an accident with a HT on and being hurt while a nurse tries to break it. After spending 150 bucks, what is a dollar for the fun you will get? 😜

Another high rider here, and originally thought a hinged base ring was the obvious way forward.

It didn't work for me at all; too many pinch points caused chafing after just a few hours, even after I'd applied medical tape to parts of the device.

DHgate Chinese devices in stainless steel have been recommended and I'd support this. I think the key(!) to a comfy device is the very minimum of hinges and joins, and the CB range have more than anything else. My own theory is that the CB range came out when they had the market to themselves, but now they're trading on their name rather than innovation (and a lot of fiction names the CB range specifically so I wonder about product placement as well).

Many Chinese devices have ergonomic rather than circular base rings, along with integral locks which make for minimal bulges under clothes. I found one that's very comfy, the short version of this: https://www.houseofdenial.com/collectio ... 3367623361. It needed no modifications and has no rough edges, so happy with quality.

The open design makes for easy hygiene, and I found that trapping my balls in my scrotum with a tightly tied shoelace before popping then through the ring works absolutely fine. The price means that you can have a few tries and not break the bank

Thanks again for the posts...
I think you guys might be right about the CB's. After looking around on the internet, there seems to be a growing dissatisfaction with the CB's.
After some thought, I ended up ordering a holy trainer copy. It was only about $15, so I am happy to see how it goes. I am still not sure the closed ring will work for me, so I may have just parted with $15 and be no better off. Oh well, it is just $15.
