Hey, I just joined in hopes of some tips on how to go about this. I'm to a 0g now (lobes) and the tapers I bought this time around are very heavy. Not liking being smacked in the face by a titanium spiral every time I shake my head, I went and got some 0g flared plugs tonight. Can't get them in. I have no issue going up in size with tapers (duh), but these are the same size as the heavy tapers. Does it just take a bit of practice? I'm not sure if maybe trying to push them through wasn't the way to go about it or what. So should I ease them in at a certain angle? Possibly stupid questions, but I'm a bit stumped. Any advice? Thanks so much!
