Hello all. Has anybody had experience with the Erecaid Classic. I know there is a later version in this brand but it is WAY more expensive and I'd like to give the cheaper version a trial before I part with a handful of reddies. Any thoughts will be most welcome.

Sorry no on has answered this post the subject of vacuum pumps has been discussed at length on this forum. However, when I type in for a search for "vacuum" only your post comes up. Pardon the pun but that really SUCKS! If a new person on this forum can't find a subject that has been discussed over and over until it is tired territorywith search something is really wrong with the search feature. FYI I really liked my Vacurect when I needed it.

Hi  Billy Mac

In past posts people suggested their own favorite pumps.  Some of them, such as the "Ericaid" are quite expensive and depend a lot on Medicare and insurance to pay the several hundred dollar price tag.

I opted to buy an inexpensive model that I bought online for about $70.  As far as I can see it works just like any of the other "manuel" pumps.  There are electric pumps, but I think they are intended for men whose hands are too weak to use the manuel model.

My discount model works fine.

I went to a sex store and bought one that worked perfectly well for $25.00. Of course, I dropped it and it broke....sigh. They all do the same thing.

You said << They all do the same thing>>.

I cannot speak from experience but I can say that the Osbon would not break if you dropped it.  It is very solidly put together.  It works well.

I'm sure the more expensive ones are made of sturdier material. But if insurance is not going to pay for it, I would be loathe to spend hundreds of dollars on one...but that is just me.  Actually, where it broke was as it hit the hard tile floor, the nib that the tube went onto snapped off. But, cheap or expensive, if they pull blood into the penis, that is all you need.  I could go through 12 of these cheap ones for the $300.00 price tag of the expensive ones!

yeah  BillyMac,

I use the Timm ErecAid Esteem.  It does a good job for me and has not failed.  One of the features I like is the inch mark fetures inscribed on the insertion tube length.  This help in developing the erection knowing where I am versus pump procedure used.  I check my length as I go along.  Anythin else I can help you with?
