Sure have! I demolished two this way, Jim ... if I recall correctly, both on small-bore, tightly fitted Italian wines. That's when I went back to the basic, foolproof waiter's model to stay. After you set aside all the cool gimmicks out there, there's nothing more functional around, with extra credit if you go with the two-stage lever Pulltap model.
