Except the purchased IPP is a CX and not a LGX. And if the doctor needed or wanted they could splice tubbing to move the pump farther away from the cylinders. And this is a preconnected device and they make devices that are not preconnected to permit cutting and splicing for a perfect fit. Preconnected may be wanted with a Titan as they have more failures from the tubing.


Corrected my post above!
On the other hand, a picture of an LGX will still show the same obvious difference in angle and positioning of the tubing insertion vs a Titan.
What it means and what is better for who, is not for me to say.
I just note that the difference is obvious, and surely both will come with their respective pros and cons.

Of course these things could change if it was actually inside a warm body.

That’s a great idea! I wanted one to show to people when I do “show and tells” anyway, and I want to reallly see how much the CX 700 expands. I have searched Google and I can’t find any available for sale. How did you find a place that has them?

Interesting.
I'm curious to know how an implant expires.
I'm guessing that the antimicrobial coating expires.
45yo, venous leak. Pills increased tinnitus (very rare). Using bimix+atropine, 0.2 of:
Atropine Sulfate: 52MCG/ML, Phentolamine MES: 0.9MG/ML, Papaverine HCL: 26MG/ML

Wolfpacker, I'm jealous. I'm a world class tight wad but I would be really tempted to buy one. Most of my interactions with my dr were actually with his nurse. She has a display implant she uses a lot. Funny thing, she claims that she has no idea which AMS model it is. Hers isn't marked anywhere as to its model. Size can be figured out.

Newbie443, I bet you're referring to me. I specifically asked him face to face if those pressures were realistic for a man to achieve. As I remember he said most men can hit 12 psi, he claimed he could get 13 psi. I think its a disservice to do a study using methods that the target audience can't attain.

So just my point of view. Lack of a pressure gage is irrelevant if Wolfpacker was to test his CX. What is revelent is he is experience in inflating an implant.

Details, those damn details. I wonder how much not having the tunica around the cylinders during the testing affects its max growth?

I've got a crappy week ahead of me. But I'll try my best to follow this thread. Just thinking out loud. This implant, not installed, owned by a member is a first as far as I know of.

I have a question, on my 700cx I can feel the tips and it is harder than the cylinders. But I also feel part way down from the tips a harder area, it's like a for lack of a better word, a sleeve area around the cylinder. So I have the harder tips and part way down a "sleeve" that's the same hardness. Does yours in the picture have this "hard" areas along the length? I'm wondering if these are just like a support ring to help make it rigid.
