    Understood. The Shove-It already exists and works as designed.

    I took your comment to suggest a multi-toothed swab that could travel in either direction, which the Dragon Swab is.

    Since most of the condensation is at the neck receiver end of the horn, you don't want to start your swabbing there, and pull all the wetness down into the horn. Also, if you tip the horn upside down after removing the neck, before swabbing, you can dump a lot of condensation out, beforehand.

I think the swab could be improved if the aglet were heavier. As it is now, the combined weight of the cord and silk cloth is greater than the weight of the aglet.
    A friend of mine had that same problem. The trick is how you turn the horn upside down. You need to rotate it so the weight first falls into the tube you want, and keep turning that same direction. Once I showed her that, she no longer had that problem.

    Nonsense!

    Think of where you would be without them.
