Long and Short
A great feature of the Wench is the flexibility it offers to men of varying sizes. As I noted, simply moving the distance between the Gripper rectangles allows a custom fit for any girth or shape.
Even better, with PE being the realm of 'smaller' men the Wench allows you to alter its dimensions to better suit your flaccid LENGTH as well as girth. By simply sizing down every 2" measurement in the instructions one can create a'shorter' Wench to accommodate a shorter flaccid length.
Trimming the Velcro band horizontally from 10"x2" to a thinner 10"x1 1/2", and the Grippers rectangles from 1"x2" to 1"x1 1/2" - you end up with a more appropriately proportioned cylinder should your flaccid length demand it. (The soft-catch Velcro on the Nylon strap would also go down in dimension)
I was surprised to find that leaving the Wench on between sets, without the CableClamp, creates an interesting 'Uli' effect on the head of my penis. This is neither severe nor uncomfortable and I can't attest to its long-term significance on permanent head expansion, but it certainly can't hurt. I know that Bib has written about using his hanger as a Uli device, and I don't doubt that with a little experimenting the Wench can be modified to meet this end as well. Due to interruptions and distractions I often leave the Wench on for extended periods, even under my clothes, and have found it to be completely undetectable. By simply squeezing blood from the head of my penis I am able to provide fresh blood for tissue health - I also make sure to do this before re-attaching the CableClamp as I continue with hanging/stretching sets.
On the issue of penis head size: Men who have a very large glans may find a need to further customize the Wench so as to avoid any uncomfortable contact between the Wench and their glans when hanging/stretching. By simply marking with a piece of white chalk those areas on the top edge of the cylinder where undesired contact is happening, you can trim back portions of the Wench - in essence carving a customized top end to fit your personal needs.
I recommend keeping any trimming to a minimum so as not to compromise the strength of the 'hug' the Wench can provide to the shaft. Also, give the wench a few tries before immediately carving it up - many 'head-contact' issues can be resolved with other adjustments and even a light wrap over part of the glans.
I think it is just as obvious that you trim down the Wench only AFTER having removed it from your penis.
People concerned with potentially dangerous stress on the dorsal nerves located on the top of the penis shaft directly behind the glans should be put at ease once they try the Wench. They will notice a 'bridge' effect that is created as the outer sleeve of the Wench spans from the top of both Gripper rectangles over the top of the shaft. This issue becomes even less of a concern due to the lateral pressure created by the natural oval shape of the CableClamp when tightened.
This does not mean there isn't contact between the Wench and the top of the shaft - but the contact is light and as I have learned, of no real consequence. In fact, I think this mild contact helps in eliminating slippage as I have experienced absolutely no such problems with the Wench when properly clamped.
I will add the obligatory warning here: Always use extreme caution and sound judgment when hanging weight or putting any stress on your penis! Listen to your body and not your desire for a bigger tool.
Anyone familiar with Bigger's work knows that he provides for circulation with his hangers via 'blood flow channels'. To date, I have not experienced any circulation issues with the Wench as is. It seems that the upper and lower 'bridges' created by the design afford the necessary blood flow to avoid troubled hanging.
I originally thought to carve shallow grooves, or channels, into the Gripper rectangles of the Wench to further enhance blood flow ala Bib's hangers but have yet to find a need. Those of you interested in pursuing this with your own Wench are free to do so, and should find that the hard-rubber Grippers lend themselves well to this task. I would think that you'd want to avoid compromising the 'solid' integrity of the Grippers by carving to deep or too many such grooves.
I tried many methods for providing the necessary lateral compression needed to achieve a strong enough grip on the internal penis to hang significant weight. My original intention was to create an all inclusive one-piece contraption. I tried everything from small pet neck collars to metal hose clamps. Ultimately, nothing came close to the natural shape, convenience, strength, and affordability of the medium size CableClamp (to say nothing of their inconspicuous appearance). The only area where they fall short - and this is another area where Bibs hangers excel - is in their inability to tighten or loosen in increments smaller than approximately 1/8". The only remedy I have found that resolves the issue of too loose a grip is in how much or how little wrap I use. I'm convinced this will become self-explanatory as people try out the Wench. It may even be something that is resolved in an even more sophisticated or more unorthodox way.
* A great little bonus of buying the four-pack of CableClamps is that the small clamps can act in place of an S-hook for hanging - meaning that short of the weight itself, the supplies I've given (not including your wrap) are all that one needs to successfully hang. This is great for light travelers who have to deal with an array of suspicions about sharp metal objects these days (to say nothing of nosy friends and curious spouses at home or the office).
Cloning and Stealth
Because the materials used to make the Wench are so inexpensive and come in a quantity that allows you to quickly and easily make more than one, it is a perfect design to experiment with. As well, once you've settled on one you like you can make a second, or a third. I personaly keep two - one at home and one at the office and never fear it's discovery as it can be rolled tightly and stashed, or can be left unrolled and stored under papers, in a book, etc. For those PE'ers who need exceptional discretion, by simply marking your settings you can in seconds disassemble the Wench and keep the parts separate until it's time to get back to business.

Finally-- about the name "Captn's Wench". I know many of us can't help rolling our eyes as PE grows and more and more people attach their names to co-opted stretches and hybrid devices. But what can I say - I just couldn't resist.
