Why should I purchase a Genuine ROP vs. an Ebay knockoff?
The Silver and Nickel question
So by now you've done some research and learned that the original ROP has been around for many years! But you may have seen a knockoff version being sold with either silver or nickel rods. What gives? Well I hope I can clarify in the next paragraph.
One can spend days guessing why someone would switch to a different metal (mineral) than Zinc. The basic method on how the Ring of Power works is simple - the absorbtion of the two minerals Zinc and Copper. ONLY these two minerals are proven to increase testosterone. No other combination! Now, when the ROP is worn, the two rods contact the skin and a tiny circuit is formed producing an almost unnoticeable current. This current stimulates blood flow to the region. This is good for flacid size increase and speeds healing if you are a PE'er (extender). The body absorbs the Copper and Zinc from the rods slowly, and this triggers the body to produce high levels of testosterone!
Exchanging the Zinc rod for something like Silver or Nickel will only alter the small current that is produced by the ring. You will actually get no benefit of testosterone production - you will only get a tingly feeling from the increased conductivity. Many people are fooled by this and think something is actually happening, when, in fact, it is not. This is also why Zinc and Copper are the two main ingredients in male enhancement products such as Enzyte and Extenze.
We have experimented for years with different models, minerals, etc.. in the attempts to get the most benefit from the ROP. The proof positive is in our extremely elevated testosterone levels! The ROP was born out of a need to help men like us reach maximum potential. We know that the ROP is simply the best on the market. Please do your research and you will find that you need to stick with what actually works and is proven.
REAL RESULTS FROM REAL USERS!
First the basics
(Notice any differences in the 2 zinc rods?)
The Zinc Rod on the left is an ROP rod and the one on the right is the Hubbard rod.
Above is a cross section of a SOLID Zinc Rod. Plated rods will not have this because they are dipped in an electroplating bath. Other sellers will show you a picture of a smooth rod end - This is a DEAD GIVEAWAY that your rod is not solid zinc - just 99.9% pure zinc "coating". Choose your materials wisely as we have!
To avoid LONG stories as to why a Hubbard Ring seller is making false and exaggerated claims, I will just cut to the basics.
1. Brief History of the Rop - In 2003 The Rop was born from the idea that results from the famous Blakoe Ring could be duplicated for a fraction of the price. We tried the Old Hubbard design and found several flaws right away (with all the components). Through a few years of trials and breakthroughs, we have come up with the most effective Ring of Power to date!
As opposed to just finding an outdated Hubbard ring design on the web and telling you that it's the best thing ever - We started from scratch using only the best possible materials!
I have been an engineer for over 15 years AND I wear a real ROP and stand by the results. I have worn my ROP for several years, including the upgrades and have experienced fantastic results. I am 5'09", 190lbs, and am very lean and muscular with no special diets. My sex drive has exploded - to which me and my wife are VERY happy with.

THE ZINC DEBATE!!
Tip Number 1 - NOT ALL ZINC IS THE SAME
We switched from the Hubbard's Zinc rod (pictured above right) to making our own Solid Zinc Rods from ingot bars. Why? Because the Hubbard ring uses a steel core zinc rod. That zinc rod has a 99.99% pure zinc plating. Here is the proof www.mcmaster.com. (Rods have a reinforcing steel core that holds the zinc or magnesium in place until it's completely consumed) That's crazy!
Our Zinc rods are made in house from a VACUUM extruding molding process. Now the other seller in his attempt to mislead you, has written that the pushing extruding method is much better (pushing type - like toothpaste). Again, we have tried these rods and found that the pushing extruding forces little air bubbles into the zinc causing micro-fractures that will show as the rod wears down. (See picture below). This image is a standard extruded zinc rod that we rubbed with a very mild sandpaper which is also pictured next to the rods.

NEXT we tackled the copper issues!
Tip Number 2 - Solid Copper is not needed and can add additional weight!
Since we only need to use the outside of the copper, we wanted the purest, cleanest copper we could find. The result was Zytec copper. Zytec copper tubing is manufactured for the cruise line industry and is certified to be in direct contact with food! Any other copper - solid or hollow- is merely waterline or electrical rated - NEITHER is safe for skin contact!
NOW ONTO THE BIG MYTH!
Can saline be added to the Rop or Hubbard to 'jump start' the current?
First thing... slow down. Don't get too excited when you see pictures of volt meters showing numbers. We also tried this (remember we wear the Rop unlike the other seller). This is what happens when you add saline to the tubing:
1. It's hard to do, messy, and can leak (imagine if it popped off while wearing under clothes?).
2. A current IS generated between the rods ONLY!! Any Engineer (like myself) or any school age child for that matter, can tell you that Electricity will ALWAYS TAKE THE PATH OF LEAST RESISTANCE! Saline has less resistance than the body and will absorb the current!
By adding saline you have done nothing more than, in effect, SHORT CIRCUITED your Ring. The current will pass through the saline from rod to rod - NOT into your body! IT'S A BASIC FACT - Just read the forums!
**And I've said it before, I would absolutely LOVE for this saline method to work! But the bottom line is IT DOESN'T - WE have done the testing for you. And we know what works after years of modding and upgrading.
IF YOU REALLY WANT AN OLD HUBBARD RING - DO AN EBAY SEARCH AND YOU'LL BE ON YOUR WAY TO AN INEFFECTIVE SURPRISE.
THE RING OF POWER HAS BEEN IMPROVED MANY TIMES OVER - MUCH LIKE THE BLAKOE RING HAS.
The final blow!
Lastly there are a few things you should know. Tom Hubbard is not really Tom Hubbard, it is a made up name (Sorry seller). (If he or she wants, just ask me for the link)
Also, now there is an offering of a smaller ring? Is that the executive model? Another fact, You need as much surface area contact as possible, so smaller in this case is definitely NOT the way to go! This is also from the same seller that used to sell the Hubbard with a silver rod instead of a zinc one!?
