PROGASM JR Very badly manufactured , sending straight back to shop !
  • Well I just received my progasm jr and the moulding line is so sharp especially on the tip !
    NOOOO way am I inserting that in me !
    I expected much better quality from Aneros !
    Highly dissapointed and will be returing the item straight away : (

    This sort of thing is not the norm for Aneros. I've only had one model that it arrived that way. And I chose to smooth down the casting seam myself. You'll find the Aneros support is very willing to help you be satisfied with their product by replacing it if that is what you chose. I think part of the problem is that there is likely a certain amount of hand work done to make these products, and it only takes a bit of inexperience or inattentiveness for this to happen. But don't think this happens all the time with whatever they make. By returning it you are actually helping them correct any quality control problems.
  • @shyzen  Yes, please write someone at support@aneros.com so that we can give you instructions on how to replace your Progasm Jr.  We will definitely need to start double checking all of our items. 
  • The products certainly live up to their reputation. This alone makes them worth the purchase price. I suspect there is quite a large profit margin based upon the fact they are basically just molded plastic. I too have had seems and sanded them smooth with some extremely fine sandpapered designed for polishing plastic headlights.

    I think it is dissapointing that they aren't perfect out of the box. Most of my purchases were through secondary sources and I was too embarrased to complain. Truthfully, there isn't an excuse for this defect since it is pretty common.

  • Yep, mine had the same problem and I complained. Aneros offered for me to send it back for replacement, but I didn't want to pay shipping and wait for a replacement. So I went to my garage and got to work. I sanded the casting line flush with 320 grit sandpaper. Then got out 2000 grit and smoothed it out. Then put a dab of automotive fine rubbing compound on a Dremel buffing pad and polished it. I then washed it thoroughly several times, all this took about an hour to do. Now it's better than new; much more comfortable, and is smooth as glass.

    These things are exorbitantly expensive for what they are, and should be perfect out of the box.
  • Yep , totally agree , for what we pay , especially in the UK they should be perfect , no work should have to be done with them.
    Luckily the place I order from is the only place I know that does no quibble refunds for up to 365 days !
    Amazing place , so luckily I am covered , otherwise I would have been even more upset.

    Even my device has the same quality but seeing as its silicone its alot softer.
    Shocking .

  • I have a Progasm Jr and like yours the seams were shocking.
    I had to resurface the entire seam with 2000 grit wet/dry paper and finish with plastic polish.
    [It pays to remove the polishing compounds with grain alcohol too is possible]
    As I live on the other side of the world spending additional to return it just wasn't an option.

    In the list of "OUR PRODUCTS" at the bottom of this page I notice that the following models are missing:
    DeVice,
    Eupho SYN,
    Progasm Junior.

    Could it be that these models are not actually manufactured by HIH and are thus considered not to be "our products"? Could this explain why Aneros was reluctant to include the DeVice amongst its merchandise on this site? And could this explain why so many purchasers seem to be having trouble with the quality of the Progasm Jr?

    I have observed the moulding flaw in my Progasm Jr but it isn't so bad that it has caused me a problem.

    Just my conspiracy theory lol!
  • My eupho syn is great ,
    the device and progasm jr are not , progasm jr being VERY BAD ..
  • I said this in another thread, but it belongs here.

    "I think a little TLC (sanding) is a small price to pay for something that will give you years of great pleasure. I don't have any of the Progasm models yet BTW. I'm going to buy a Maximus next month, but I'm VERY happy with my Syns and the little Peridise demons."
