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.

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.The difficulty that I was having with the Hodge swab is getting the cord from the neck collar to the bottom of the bell, followed by a second difficulty of getting the aglet (the weight attached to the cord end) to fall out of the bell instead of falling back down the body tube. 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.
