    Curious if anybody has purchased/worn the ringless BA-30 design? I'm looking at a couple options for a light, ringless cage, and their titanium option is appealing. Just looking for any first-hand feedback.

    I was also looking at this piece and would like to know if anyone here has tried it out and their thoughts. :)

    I have not tied this cage, but can attest to the high quality of Badass Workroom cages. I've been wearing the BA-01 titanium for a while now and it's just about perfect. Produced exactly to specification, good finish, parts fit together perfectly, and soooo light weight. Good luck!

    I totally agree with this - I got my BA-21p Monday - it hasn’t come off since and is super comfortable. Really well made device.

    In regards to the 21 P...did you get the hinged ring? If so, how is it? Just asking because of various issues I've read about them, not actually any about BA tho

    I didn’t get the hinged ring. The device has been great - I have only been out of it one day since I got it, with no issues at all.

    I have a titanium BA-30 coming hopefully shipping next week. Can let you know when it comes in. I had him add some cross bars on the front also.

    Arrived today. Should have went a little smaller on diameter when I’m flaccid due to it pulling down on me but overall it feels ok for only having it on 10 minutes lol. Comes in 0.4 oz heavier then my cobra S wide with Badassworkroom steel locking d ring. 2A765026-3B8C-4306-95D0-AF171F232BE1.jpeg 42E264FB-5FC6-4D49-B77F-20DB2B994654.jpeg

    @Jaxon1023 Thank you so much for sharing your experience so far. I have been contemplating purchasing a BA-30 for PK. I love the additional bars you had installed, and the radius of the pin (PA hook) appears to be favorable with limiting the amount pull that will be exserted on the piercing. If I may ask, what was the overall length of the cage you decided on? What was your backset measurement?

    In your photos, the scale unit is set as "fl.oz". Do you have a weight in grams? Maybe they are the same and I just don't know my units of measure...lol

    I think he actually updated the BA-30 after making mine because I went back on his site and it shows now with the cross bars. In fact I think his photos are of mine lol. My cage is 60mm and PA backseat of 15mm. I’ll try to weigh it again in grams lol. I didn’t notice the fluid ounces. Here is it on. 68B0A484-0AC7-42E9-8185-F0185D5771CF.jpeg 471C63C7-9F3F-4083-85BC-AC733C64E581.jpeg

    So it’s 3.1oz or 87 grams. I’ve also decided that I’m going to sell it if interested. 615BEDED-3850-463D-AC39-9D1A18532B1F.jpeg C486DDE5-7C3D-4437-84FA-CE1C6F3F41AD.jpeg

    I was gonna ask about this, because on his etsy site, it still shows the one that was on the website when I started the thread, with no side bars. I kinda prefer the more streamlined original look. Thank you for all the info, and if you do keep wearing it for a while, I'd be interested to hear about comfort levels.

    My experience is that he is very willing to make custom changes to the base designs. So if you want one without the side bars, ask for it.
