    So replacement tubes, eh? I tried using the latest method to remove the tube by using a vice grip wrapped in masking tape. I ended up bending the bottom of it. :( Good thing I used it on one that had Atomic Cinnacide in it. I was going to throw it away anyway as it had cracks. I'm just too afraid that I'll keep ruining the base of the device by trying to pry it off with vice grip. I'd like to get it off and re-wick it, but I suppose I'm just too clumsy or something.

    Skip the masking tape. Rock gently while pulling.

    Yeah, the clamp is just to hold it in place. The rocking is what pulls it off. Someone on Youtube had this comment:

    Of course, I don't have a dremel--maybe time to invest, a lot of suggestions seem to need one!

    Did one this morning. My spark plug puller idea is a no go. With the rubber trying to grip, I would have had to squeeze too hard, and felt as though I would crush the base and or tank. Just a naked pair of pliers allowed me to get it apart without squeezing hard at all. Did leave a couple of very minor scratches, but beats cracking the tank.

    Cleaning these while apart is much more effective. Now that we know to remove the ring first, that is the only way to go IMO.

    BTW, this one also has about a 1/2" long crack in the tank. Taking it apart did not make it worse. Of course YMMV.

    so just a thought as i still havent got a chance to get one but has anybody tried to use a non tapered tube? and any reason other than the mouthpiece not to? perhaps a straight tube with a cap and a modified vision seal with the nipple (think like the stone tanks) might work...
    man i just need to break down and order a couple :D

    Any word on when the LR Stardusts will be back in stock? I haven't been watching the threads closely lately so I might have missed it. I need to place an order sometime this week and didn't know if I needed to hold off or just go ahead.

    I'm in the same boat. I'm down to my last one and want to wait until the LR units are stocked B4 ordering.

    most of my stardusts including the v2 ones flood regularly if I am not very careful. And the draw is a little too tight for me. I'm gonna try the v3 stones and see how those go.

    Flooding? Hmmm? I haven't had any flooding with mine. If I try too fill them too quickly with a thick juice I end up with some in the tube but I lay them on their side all day and never get flooding.

    I know it's very rare it seems but not for me.. My first one the center pin wasnt straight so that flooded all the time. I'm laying a V2 on its side right now. I'll pick it up in a few minutes and I will most likely get a gurgle. Also getting vapor in the top of the tank indicating a leak. I'm tightening them as much as possible too. Using a pure VG juice. I dont have any PG juices ATM
