I'm not familiar with the pump you listed but 300 pumps sure doesn't sound right. Did you shave the area so you can get a good seal?

Steve n Dallas,

I think roofmaster is referring to the AMS LGX 700 Penile Implant.

roofmaster,

From my experience, which has only been a few months, after about 25 - 30 pumps, the bulb is hard and won't depress. I can't imagine still being able to depress the bulb (pumping) 300 times. Also, after about 30 - 45 minutes I am sore, as well. My length has not increased noticably.
