    Whats the difference between gauges?

    I have had 6gs for about a month now and sometime within the next month or 2 I want to stretch to a 4.

    I was just wondering if anyone knew how much bigger, maybe measurement wise, a 4g is than a 6g?

    I think I lost it, I still have my stretched Buddha sticker though!

    It sucks, I was looking at 4gs, and there really isn't 1 I like. There are a few organic I dig, but they are always flared.

    Hopefully those new stone plugs, not flared, come in soon enough.

    Oh crap, you can't wear organic when you first stretch, damn!

    How come they have no cool, safe plugs that you can wear right after stretching, they are all boring...

    All I know is when I get to the size I want and stop (0g) I am probably gonna just own organic plugs. I really dig the stone, wood, and bone ones.

    I don't think so... I love wearing Pyrex color front plugs after a stretch... it's glass and it comes in a lot of interesting colors. Cool and safe. [img]/emoticons/emotion-1.gif[/img]

    pyrex is awesome.

    One thing to do is to buy inexpensive plugs to stretch with (say glass or ptfe) and buy the ones you want to wear also. A week or so after the stretch, provided you didn't screw something up, you should be able to wear the jewelry you pine for. Unless of course it is DF.

    It should be noted that upon reaching 00g, if you stretch in incriments of 1/16" each stretch will be 1.585 mm diameter, and 4.987 Circumference. And spikerdeppie's measurements are close, but not exact.
