    Are you planning on stretching them?

    Yup! Up to 1/2" at least at the moment but I'm really just going to see how it goes

    I asked Gorilla Glass on their Facebook page if they make single-flare colorfronts over 1/2" and they said they do, but where in the world could I get them? They don't have them on BAF. You can't get stuff directly from GG can you?

    Maybe type "1/2in gorilla glass" into Google and see what comes up?

    Ooh that was a good idea, it looks like they have them on Steel Navel. I saw those the other day but I didn't look at the sizes because from the product photo it looked like the front flare was flat like GWS ones instead of rounded (which I prefer). But then I looked at the customer photos and they (the bigger sizes at least) are rounded. Wooo! Looks like I will be going to 5/8" or at least 9/16". I'll probably stay at 1/2" for quite a while though since I have a pretty big collection already.

    My ear is refusing to stretch from 2.4 to 3mm. It's driving me nuts! My ear just won't take the taper

    Might be 3.2mm? Sometimes there are a couple different measurements for different sizes. You've probably thought of that but just making sure. :P

    I dunno what it is tbh, I bought it as a 3mm but it could be 3.2! My ear just isn't stretchy. I get to the same point on the taper each time, just cannot go any further!!

    My lobes are doing that with 14g. It will not go to 2mm no matter how nice I am to them or how many oil massages they get. I figure with patience they will get there someday.
