Stretched 2 things last night... Quite the minimal stretch compared to what I've read in here in the past but it's a lower gauge for me. -Tongue-...14g down to 12g without any problems at all, maybe a 10 would have been a better stretch? It is definitely a lower gauge than what I had so I thought it was a little weird it went in so easily. I have a 12g vibrating tongue ring and it went in a little tighter last time I used it. Maybe since I've had my tongue ring for so long it's easy for it to stretch. -PA- ...10g (CBR) to an 8g (CBB). I bought an 8g taper as well since crak600 said he needed to use one for his. I lubed it up and started inserting it, got about 1/4" away from the end of the taper and there was a lot of pressure. I took it back out and tried just the 8g CBB and it went in with minimal problems. I think gravity helped out enough to get it ready for the larger gauge. Welcome me to the club.
