From what I have been gathering in the last few weeks and now here on MOS , it seems correct if I'm wrong that the Hydro approach is the only way to go? Why is that, can someone please explain why air pumps are not as effective as hydro ?Am I right in assuming that the Bathmate is the best available for the job? Thanks

Hydropumping is a lot more gentle in a way, compared to air pumping . With air pumping , fluid retention is often much more severe; therefore the gains you get are mainly just puffiness. There are some electric air pumps out there which have programming to fluctuate the pressure in certain sets. But those are more expensive than the hydropumps, very advanced stuff.

Water is a pleasing element. One could say using a hydro pump is messy, but you do use lube when air pumping and it can get messy as well.

Bathmate has a good set of available pumps for different sizes. For the moment Penomet only comes in one size. One could find the different gaiters in Penomet as a strength or as a downfall: as the gaiter isn't affixed, you can't do stretches very well. But stretching inside a hydropump would come a bit later anyway, not straight away from the get-go.

While I favor hydro pumping (and I think many others do as well), it isn't the only way to go. The Newbie program doesn't require any other tools than your hands. I'd start with exercises that can be done with hands and then approach hydro pumping .
I know from experience that cool tools or toys don't necessarily mean big progress or commitment to a routine. ;)

Thanks for the explanation it all makes sense, I guess it all comes down to stretching whether its jelquing or pumping , right now I'm just getting back to te jelquing so I guess that's all I need to concern myself with for now and like you said worry abut pumping later, but no doubt hydro is the way to go.

And remain active on the forum allowing us to motivate you and you to update us. Make a progress log so you can show us your routine, your stats, your measurements and maybe even pictures. Having a progress thread helps you stay active and helps us keep you motivated and on track. When you’re ready for the BathMate let me know and I will give you $25 cash back.

I started a journal earlier this month so I'll be updating that, I've taken some before pics to help me see any future progress, motivation is truly a big issue and I understand how like with any workout if you don' t see immediate gains you might get discouraged and lose motivation. I appreciate the offer for the cash back and I will let you know when I'm ready, thanks

No problem my brother! I also asked your advice in another thread if you get a chance to checking that out.
