Looks like the topic got resurrected. :D

 

At Xmas someone gave me the Goulet cleaning/tuning kit which also came with that rubber ear bulb thing... which works pretty good, though, I can get more force if needed with the syringe I use, plus I can suck in more easily as well.

 

Both seem fine for what I need anyways. But glad some people found the idea useful. :)

I don't go too aggressive with it myself... but had once or twice where it needed a bit of extra 'oomf' to get it going.

 

Luckily, cheap pens in those cases, like $5 eBay cheap. :)
