Question for users of the MT (JR)

Post by Rob UK » Wed May 10, 2017 5:54 pm

Hi all,

I currently use a Thickwall 2 stage cylinder 4 inch opening into 6 inch internal, which I've recently dropped and damaged (aaarrgg !) so I need to replace it. Thing is, I'm beginning to get stuck in there. I fill the width totally and length to about 5 inches down into the tube. There is a 1 inch drop on the first stage and I use a silicone seal which is great as none of my abdomen gets sucked into the tube. I'm about 15.5 inches round when I come out of the tube after a 2 hour session.

I'm debating replacing like for like but have been also looking at other cylinders, the Monster Tube jr, looks interesting but I' don't know if I'm ready for it or not based on my current progress. (I've been pumping nearly 2 years now).

The idea of a hinged tube and not getting stuck appeals but how comfortable is the MT jr. to use ? Can you go for 2 hours without getting stress on your abdomen - it looks quite heavy especially as I wet pump. At 2.5 inch opening I'm assuming only the bits you want to pump go in the tube and abdomen suck is minimal ?
How good are the seals on the MT - how long do they last before they perish and need replacing ? I'm in the UK so this is going to be a major investment for me and I want to get it right.
Are there any other tubes anyone could recommend based on my info. I already own a Longjohnny style for stretch.

Any thoughts / advice much appreciated.

Pics here are not of me at my max, they were taken about 6 months or so ago.
Cheers
Rob

You're next tube will depend on what you want from you're pumping. Do you want a big fat sac or are you after stretch to get big hangers. The wider the tube the fatter you'll get, so, the narrower the tube, the quicker you'll pack it to get the pull down the tube. The MT jr i would thing is a bit of a cross between the two.
Decide what you want from you're pumping and that should point you in the right direction and pick the tube for you.
Hope that helps.

It looks like you underestimate your size and could fill a junior fairly quickly. The opening is 2-1/2 inches so you would have MUCH less abdomen pulled in than with the two stage that was entrapping you. You would get more use for your money out of a Sr. in the long run and the opening is 3-3/4", still narrower than your cracked 2 stage. Of course you will get a giant round melon as opposed to low hangers. You could supplement a Sr. with a straight tube eventually if you get too spherical. It doesn't bother me personally because after a few hours they relax and hang low anyway.

It is of a lightweight construction and the water has more weight than the tube itself. The seal is $14 and will last for years if you take care with it. Don't use petroleum lube. Don't over tighten the screws and do leave them loose when not in use so the seal will not adhere to the lid or prematurely compress. A heating pad on the high setting can soften and deform the flanges because the water only removes heat from the walls. So take care not to apply it directly on the flanges or use medium setting. Leave your strap on when closing it to avoid pinching. I lube with slippery water soluble hair conditioner.

Hi Rob

Uk pumper here and the last 7 of my 17 years at it I have owned a monster tube Senior.

Can not argue with any thing the guys here have said so far but ill stick with what i know about my time with this tube.

First its a 3.5 opening (hinged) and the flange is moulded and takes some getting used to but I find it comfy now but not at first.

It will suck in any loose available groin in to form a seal or plug and after a while i found i could no longer use the silicone seal on my pumptoys ASTJ which is the same as on your long johnny ?? and now use that as a tube rest to as i have to use the ASTJ with out the seal.

The comfort seal for it made By pumptoys is not for theses later monster tubes as the orginal MT had a flat flange and is no use as i use it on a 3.5 x 12 with a flat flange or as a tube rest :)

As for the MT hinge set up i never use it only once when I tried saline @ 1000cc = to 17.5 ins around the sack approx as not easy to keep the tape on but normally pumped i can pop one ball out at a time :) :)

I ordered a 2nd seal when brought my MT and glad i did as it lasted about 2 years as i was a wet pumper and it went a bit off, still on the 2nd seal but i never open it now need new one but would prefer a silicone one, like some Europe pumpers use with out the wing nuts and use clamp instead but they mostly dry pump and use glucose infusions or have silicone.

Bottom line here is its a great tube after you have pumped for a long while and its the only tube i use now along with my trusty ASTJ without the seal.

The MT senior is a BIG tube holds loads of water stays warm longer and needs 1HG more than other tubes to seal and stay on and dry a joy to use with a good all round vacuum not a direct pull like long straight tubes with room for all around vacuum.

If you do use the MT with water it takes no prisoners so use a box as it will fall over and make a mess !!!

The long johnny is also a tube that with or without the seal will always be a great tube in your collection over your pumping life time.

The monster tube V the Magnum ? difficult choice it depends on how your built and pump.

As for the JR monster tube ???? if you use a long johnny NOW!!! its the tube you may have need to buy before that ? as it small opening 2.75" and most guys dont buy them and there are more MT SR's about but you never find any used ones for sale unlike the JR ?

Ok that about it and was it a good investment for me ?

At first I was not sure but now looking back I am glad I did

By the way Rob from your pictures which look great in size and shape the tubes your using now do you justice :) :)

Just carry on what your doing time will show you what TUBE's you will need !!

Notice how the water & tube shape change the optics and make you look bigger, but the shape is real :) and I do hang low and very well next morning :) :)

You may find this post interesting as I have, this guy has worked it all out viewtopic.php?f=5&t=44841

Thanks for the comments guys, much appreciated.

Looks like I'm going to take the plunge on an MT - just got to make the decision on which one !

You will fill the jr and be looking for a sr before you can say jack Robinson.
