Gauges are also tricky when it comes to stretching, because you’re not stretching the same amount every time. For instance, 8g to 6g is a stretch of 1 millimeter.

Personally, I had to use tape to get from a 2g to a 0g, because it’s a 2mm stretch, which is hard to do all in one go. You might want to start there as well, or you might not need to until you get to 00g (if you‘re going that far).
