[Helix Syn V] and [Vice 2] K-Tab Removal

The models mentioned in the title arrived recently. My preferred position is lying down flat on my back, so naturally the K-Tab becomes an issue because it presses against the mattress. I removed it from my Maximus and Eupho (hard plastic) a year ago, and I've had no regrets. I'm quite thin, and the K-Tab overshoots my body by a mile, so it does nothing but hang in the air like an annoying hook anyway. I feel the same is necessary for the Helix and Vice2 to make them usable, but I have concerns about cutting through this new material combo. I'm planning on making a cut as clean as possible, then make a glue plug in the gap between the plastic core and silicone to make it waterproof again. Does this seem like a bad idea? And I'm concerned about the electronics inside the Vice2, since the charging point is very near the base of its K-Tab, so I might just leave that one alone and use it as a side-position toy :/

Any thoughts, advice, experiences? Thanks.

Hmm... Yes. As an experienced K-tab remover, I would not touch the silicon models. (Not that I ever did it, my Vice is still intact.) It would be better to put a foam wedge or pillow under your butt to lift yourself up so the tab clears the bed when you are using those models. I find that some lift and back arching really improve things anyway, so that's pretty much a win-win.

Totally agree! I usually put a pillow under my back which elevates my hips and definitely enhances the contact of both tabs as the Aneros rocks back and forth! Do not remove either tab!

Maybe someday Aneros can make a line of models with attachable/detachable tabs?  Maybe include buyable sets of tabs for different feeling and comfort fits?

I had an old Progasm where the K-Tab broke off.  I completely shaved it down, and now use it all the time.  It is really nice....  It allows for more movement options.  I'd love to try the Vice, but I think going back to the original Progasm type design wouldn't be worth it.
