Title.
Where can I get stronger springs for my SG ? I've had this thing for a good few years now, and I'm getting to the point where the only stretch the thing gives me is when I've got the screws maxed out - to say, the springs aren't really giving much tension anymore. Is there anywhere I can get a replacement set, or a stronger set?

Have you ordered more rods to make the stretch longer?

I think SG sells heavier springs in their store.
Unfortunately, they don't sell just the springs - they sell the whole arm assembly. I just want higher compression springs so I don't need to use the bars to get a good stretch going.

Could I use these on the SizeGenetics ? I can't see a way to get the springs out.

use the small key tool that comes with the sizegenetics
I've had this thing this entire time and did not know this at all. Thank you so much!

Ordered some new springs yesterday! They have roughly 9~10 pounds of compression force (4200 grams), so I should be in for a treat! The default springs with the SG max at I think 2600 or 2900, so this will be fun!

New springs came in today - the ones I ordered are unfortunately not the length of the ones that came with the SG , so I might try again to find some more at the same length , because I ended up using two springs in each chamber to load it, but damn if it doesnt offer resistance. While the springs dont compress past the second line because of their size, the tension is so high that I had to step back from using the four longer bars, to two long bars and the two medium length bars, so hey! New challenges to face, new heights (or lengths, rather) to reach!

Damn that sucks didn't know that the size would not match up with the sizegenetics these are also available the only thing is they don't list the strength but i did purchase them as i wanted to order extra bars and they are strong

How strong compared to the original set of springs would you say they are? I don't think I'll be using the springs that I got - they're pretty much immovable. If I could get something that allows for full compression, but more tension, that'd be awesome.
