There's nothing wrong with a stinger that a pair of pliers and a gentle twist can't fix.

And does anyone else find Kaywoodie's use of the word "Drinkless" in this connection to be obnoxious?

Drink less? How about drink nothing??

I guess the thing I dislike the most about them is they impede the cleaning process. I have an old Marxman that I would like to pull the stinger out. Do any of you see anything that would prevent me from doing so without damaging the stem??
