R. G. Hardie Flexi-Stick blowpipe
The Flexistik is a precision made blowpipe designed to achieve the optimum position of the blowpipe and maximum airflow into the pipe bag. Imitation Ivory mount is $5 extra.
It is made of a series of components to adjust the length and angular position of the blowpipe. It extends from 8 to 12 inches using a locknut and tube assembly and together with a swivel joint the piper can adjust the blowpipe to position comfortably while performing.
It has a number of component parts with which you should become familiar:
Integral valve assembly:- unscrew to replace valve. We recommend smearing Vaseline on the valve for a better seal. Insert blowpipe into the stock in a clockwise direction to avoid loosening the valve assembly.
Swivel Joint:- Loosen swivel cover and adjust to favoured position, then tighten firmly.
Telescopic tube: - loosen locknut and extend to preferred position then tighten firmly. Two different lengths of tube are provided to achieve the desired length. Unscrew locknut to remove the tube. The mouthpiece and locknut should both be removed to change the tube.
Oval Mouthpiece:- A second option to the more traditional round mouthpiece. Both mouthpieces are threaded onto the telescopic tube
