Ball Weight - 8oz.

Gear Essentials™

Interested in ball weights but a bit frightened of having a hunk of metal around your balls?  This ball stretcher is the lightest weight we offer and the best selection for someone new to weights.  It is the easiest to start with and it will still put an erotic tug on your balls as you move around. This weight has a width of 1/2 inch (12.7 mm) and weight of 8 ounces (23 kg).

This is also a great size if you want to 'stack' (wear more than one ball stretcher at a time).  Stacking is great to customize the amount of weight you are swinging and it is a great way to move up to the next size. 

This size, like all of our ball weights, is available in our sensual brushed finish. All our weights are made of stainless steel to the same high standards that you've come to expect from gear essentials. Best of all, this ball weight is made in Minnesota by corn-fed workmen!

(Want to see what it looks like on?  Check out our blog for more!  But remember--NSFW!)


Note: the 'nub' connecting the two halves is added in manufacturing to secure the side opposite the screw. This piece is NOT made of stainless. Therefore, when exposed to water (shower, swimming, etc.) it will likely show signs of rust. If you do expose it to water, you may want to take it off & dry it. If you enjoy wearing it to the beach just periodically take steel wool to the nub & clean it off. (If you don't, no one will see it but you since it is hidden inside the seam. Under normal use it will take years for this piece to erode away.)

It's also good to remember that when swimming in a pool or hot tub (particularly a public or commercial pool which use harsh & strident chemicals), you will want to thoroughly rinse off any of your gear to remove these chemicals (which can cause damage).

I overall rating of these is 4.5. I now have the entire collection of the plain ball weights. I've worn all of them at one time. Just amazing. The reason its not a 5 out of 5 is that the 1.5" inside diameter is just a tad bit small for me. I really struggle to get these on and it takes me a entire day to be able to put them all on one at a time. For the time it takes for me to put on I have to wear these for an entire day. Its a challenge, but also well worth the time. After an entire day of wearing the 8,16,24, and 32oz ball weights I then take off one of them and then wear 3 ball weights all day. I continue that process until I am not wearing any at all. My ball sack hangs so low. I have gained a total of 2" of hanging balls!!

Bought the 8 oz. ball weight a week or so ago. Wasn't sure if I really wanted to use something like this but boy oh boy! One minute on my balls and I was hooked. Fits awesome with just the right about of pull. So good I bought the 16 oz a few days later. Love the way it feels while I am free balling and the sound it makes hitting my PA when I walk. Definitely worth every cent!

Dynamite! I usually go for a cockring but decided to try a ball weight for a bit fun. I followed the suggestion in the description and chose the 8oz since I was new to ball weights. I had a fabulous, super hard on just from putting the weight on the first time. That first time was about 5 months ago and it still plays its magic on me every time I use it.

The weights arrived in perfect shape and only a couple of days after ordering. I have tried them twice already and I love the feeling-- especially when worn with some of my looser slacks. Great product!

I purchased the 8 oz ball weight. What a great product!

This is perfect. I put it on as soon as I it arrived. Love the great pulling feeling it gives when I'm jacking off. I'm hoping to gain some good stretch and extention on my ball sack. Can hardly wait to move up in weight.

On a carefully calculated whim I made the decision to buy myself the 8oz ball weight along with some other items from Gear Essentials. When my parcel arrived & it being opened it I was overwhelmed, the presentation & apparent quality was awesome & way beyond my expectations.

My only concerns are with the sizing guide & choices. I'm an average guy, cut with a PA & nuts/nut sack that's bigger that some guys. IMHO The glans rings should offer a 1" option & in hindsight I should've chosen the larger diameter ball weight.

Am real keen to invest in some more weights & stack up. Looking forward to reordering
