I seem to recall there was a wedge version of the flexMN, but I don’t seem to find it now, is it still available?
Put in my first flex implant last weekend (flexDF2 with needle) and I feel hopeful about future implants now that I know I can also handle biopolymer implants.
So while I wait for Vivokey Apex and my Walletmor I was thinking about one more flex implant and a “magic” chip is interesting as I have yet to get a magic chip. So I was thinking either the flexMN in wedge version or the flexM1.
I have a big round flexMT and I’m pretty sure that it’s beyond my skill to install myself so still waiting to hire a bodymodder.
Or have I mixed up which implants that are or have been in a wedge version?
Part of the issue is that the magic chips are, well, shitty. Unfortunately, @anon3825968 was right to be hesitant… the narrow flex version of the magic ntag (flexMN) is very very difficult to get a write done properly on and even reading is iffy… the only hope you have of making it work half way decently is to go for the full circle deal.
Ah, I remember seeing it listed on the site as “narrow” version (7mm x 35mm), but I thought I saw it also being mentioned elsewhere as the wire antenna version NOT the PCB antenna, but then only ever seeing a picture of the PCB antenna version… I was so confused
however if the performance is the same, it makes sense to go for the PCB.
I played around with my CAT S41 and my flexDF2 and my 3x xDF2 and I feel that the flexDF2 is “a bit” easier to get a read of.
But the caveat is that it is only 6 days after install and it was a self-install, so maybe it will improve, or could be better with a “proper” body-modder.
For me it still the feeling of accomplishment and proudness that I managed to install a flex implant at last, it proves for me that I can handle the next awesome implants around the corner.
first off: Congrats!
Flex self installs are quite a pain to get done! (Pilgri-pun intended)
Bloatness and fluid build up might be playing a part there, but I don’t feel like it is really a big deal with flexies.
My flex DF2 was reading as well throughout the healing process just like it reads now-a-days.
Anyhow, looking forward to hear about it’s performance once it’s properly healed!
(I am way to curious about a proper DF2 with the new antenna. All I had on the new antenna to compare was a magic ntag)
And you are damn right to feel proud!!
Can’t wait until we can be talking about our self installs of our new left eyes, or more!
I also wanted to report the range on the flexMN wedge is way worse than any of the glassies I currently have. Usually, I can read all of my chips through my phone case, but can’t with the wedge. If you’re considering getting the flexMN, please bear that in mind.
