The Full Pro-Extender Penis Extender Review by The PhalloGauge Team
Written by Jeff on May 10, 2016
After reading a bit on what it's like to wear a penis extender, as well as look into the factors that you should consider when buying a penis extender, you've narrowed it down to a couple of choices.
After all, your efforts to try build your own reliable penis extender device have failed or it just keeps falling apart or your penis keeps slipping out.
So you came across the typical penis extender design - the rod-based design. Now you're looking to see if this will do the trick.
Here, we review the Pro-Extender penis extender, a device that characterizes the typical rod-based design.
Will it work for you and be the tool that will provide you size that you can be happy with for the rest of your life? Let's find out.
What is the Pro Extender?
The pro extender is a penis extender that consists of a white plastic frame to hold your penis in the elongated, "extended" position, and applies tension with springs and metal rods inserted onto the left and right parts of the device.
The device uses a silica noose to clamp down onto your penis to secure it in place.
The rods are then finely tuned to the desired tension by twisting two screws on the sides of the device.
You can angle your penis upwards or downwards to accommodate your session whether it involves lots of sitting or standing.
The device is simple and doesn't come with many parts, but does include a short instruction manual.
It is not manufactured in the United States.
The Parts of the Pro Extender
The White Plastic Base Part
This is a pretty standard plastic base part. It's not made out of expensive or durable material, so it isn't really a big deal if it breaks - only you won't be able to use the device.
The Metal Rod Set
The Pro-Extender comes with three pairs of metal rods: Two short pairs and one long pair.
There are male and female screws at the top and bottom of each of these rods that allow adjustment.
By attaching these rods to the 'plastic base part', you can set the tension that is applied to your penis.
We will see later how to fine tune the tension in this device.
The Silica Noose
The silica noose is a semi-hard, semi-soft, cylindirical piece of silca.
It is about 6 inches long and half a quarter of an inch in diameter. It is sort of like a flexible, yet thick straw that isn't hollow. It can be bent and twisted, but only to a certain degree.
You can compare this to other rod-based penis extenders like the SizeGenetics penis extender which uses a plastic strap instead of a silica noose like that of the Pro-Extender.
How to Use the Pro-Extender Penis Extender
- Choose which metal rods you will deploy in the device based on the tension setting you wish to apply to your penis.
- Screw in the metal rods.
- Fit the 'white plastic base part' around the base of your penis shaft and press it against your body.
- With one hand, hold pinch your glans and press against the opposite white part in the 'white plastic frame'.
- Thread the 'silica noose' through the holes in the white part and pull it tighter until it clamps down just below the glans of your penis.
- Angle the penis extender up or down and tighten the screws to lock the angle in place.
Pros of the Pro-Extender
The grip on your penis shaft is actually pretty good
We thought that the grip wasn't going to be good because the thing that anchors the top of your shaft to the device is just the silica noose.
However, it actually makes a good, secure connection to your penis without pinching or irritating your penis shaft or glans in any way.
Cons of the Pro-Extender
The silica noose is difficult to thread through the supporting plate's holes.
It's very tedious to adjust the amount of force.
There are a couple of reasons for this con.
One of the reason is that there are essentially only three metal rods that come with the whole system that can be installed and replaced.
This means you effectively only have 4 starting force states based on the combinaton of rods you put in.
The combinations are as follows:
- Base rod + the short rod
- Base rod + the long rod
- No base rod + only short rod.
- No base rod + only long rod.
Ok, so there are four starting force settings as described above. How do you get any force level in between those?
Well, that brings up the secondary method to adjusting the force - you have to twist the screws on each rod to shorten and lengthen the rod length.
Not able to easily get both rods on both of the sides of the penis an even length.
Unfortunately, this is a disadvantage that is inherent to all rod-based penis extenders.
Remember how we mentioned that after you install the metal rods on the device, you have to twist the screws to adjust the height (and therefore, tension) of the rods?
Well, you have to do this for both rods on both sides of your penis.
If both rods aren't adjusted to the right height, then, you're going to have a lopsided, unstable device with the potential of your penis slipping out.
For me personally, I find I spend at least a minute trying to get the height right for both sides of the device.
One could argue that a minute is not that long, but given that you have to put on and take off the device at least twice a day (yes, everyone will have to take it off to use the bathroom), and given that you have to wear it for months, this little adjustment procedure will start to take its toll on you.
Anything that creates a small, yet tedious chore will add up in the long run because you multiply that extra work by however many times you're assembling and disassembling the penis extender.
Practically impossible to use this extender in public.
Again, this is another common problem with penis extenders, and this one is no different.
That's because of the fact that the penis is being extended straight outwards.
While you can angle the penis extender downwards and wear loose pants, like sweat pants, you might be able to get away with wearing it public.
But when it comes to finer, tighter pants like jeans and slacks, the extender is definitely going to show through.
Additionally, even if you tried to wear these tighter pants with the penis extender, it would feel pretty uncomfortable squeezing and rubbing against the penis extender.
The Pro-Extender is one of the early, basic designs for penis extender devices. A few similar designs, like the SizeGenetics penis extender also came out a bit later trying to improve on this basic formula.
That's not to say that it's bad, in fact, it's much better than doing manual stretching, with the immediate time and effort savings that you'll be getting.
But the same can be said with for all penis extenders, and some do it better and with even more benefits than just time and effort saved.
Penis extender technology has come a long way since the original rod-based extender design.
In fact, as we have found out with many of the guys that we worked with, simply having a rod-based penis extender is not enough.
There needs to be more that we demand out of the penis extenders. They need to be optimized for comfort, practicality, and most importantly, user-experience.
These are the factors that determine the likelihood that you'll put the device on the next day, the day after that, and the day after that. And these consistent days of wearing the device is what determines successful enlargement.
To address these user-needs, the emergence of the PhalloGauge Model S penis extender and the PhalloSan Penis Extender came about. These are truly multitasking devices that now make penis enlargement accessible to any guy - no matter how busy or adamant they may be.
