Very pleased with the Barbell. I have a frenulum piercing that I have guaged up to a 6 but it is still only a 1/4 inch wide. I wanted the balls to be snug against each opening and could not find anything with a short bar like this. This fits perfectly, weighs little and the workmanship is fabulous. Whole different look than the rings I had been wearing and it is nice to have more options.
