I'm done trying, posting and doing mods/fixes for the Moerman stuff, and everything I can to make it work. The way I see it, I'm not on their R&D team or payroll. I can definitely see the benefit of this mod, I was livid at the close outs as well but even more so with the presentation angle of the channel in the jaws.
The best mod I've found for the Excelerator/Liquidators, aside shaving off the plastic bit on the tips and mating it with a wagtail PC handle, was switching out the handle and channel for Unger Ninjas.
That said, I like how well done this mod is, really good work.
