Steve Haworth good or bad
Hi, I came across this site http://www.wholesalebodyjewellery.com/acatalog/Silicon-Implant---Magnet---sold-individually.html#SID=246 and i was wondering if any of you guys bought a magnet from here before and if it's worth it or not to try.
Getting magnets perfect is difficult. Dangerousthings is working on getting stable, capable magnets, but they are good as well. Wouldn't have any issue saying that they are good. Just doesn't have a stock of M31s because there's no supply of consistently good ones to sell on his end.
Hayworth magnets are coated in a thick layer of silicone. Because a magnetic field falls in strength so rapidly as you move away from the surface.. these things provide a far weaker effect then say an M31. On top of this, the silicone coating process they're using is hot. Hot enough that if you cut what was originally an N52 magnet out of the silicone and test it.. it actually has a far weaker field then you'd expect. They rate a bit lower then an N48 if I recall correctly. So, you're looking at a bigger magnet with less of an effect. An M31 is.. kind of magically really. But I still say they're ok because they'll give you a taste of having a magnetic sense and they're consistently stable. I have no interest in having one. I mean, I've experienced better but for a lot of people magnets are nothing more then a parlor trick anyhow. If you can pick up paperclips and show off to your friends then it's all good.
A Haworth magnet is like a mini-van, it's safe, gets you where you're going and if there's a fender bender it won't kill you. The m31 is like a sports car, pure performance but a low-speed collision can spell real trouble.
When the next phase of the m31 comes out, there will be plenty of people ready to hop in the driver's seat so it's up to you what you want to drive.
For someone who has never had an implanted magnet before, would they be disappointed with a Haworth magnet or a similar DIY coated one?
Overall if I had to do it again I would go 100% Cyborg. Cyborgs are smaller, stronger, and less invasive. The Von Cyborg procedure is comparable to getting a piercing, while the Hayworth IS a minor surgery requiring stitches. If you want to do it RIGHT and go "balls out" my advice is contact Samppa Von Cyborg. If you want a magnet for party tricks and play get any old thing from your local guy. If you want superpowers go to Samppa!
