I just got a proma for my Hobbit, and as I understand it the baffle that comes with it is packed pretty tight, which contributes the hellish volume of this pipe.
I've never repacked a baffle before, but my understanding is that it's pretty straight forward (pull out the tube in the middle, remove some of the batting, rewrap and shove it back in). I'm just not positive on how to open it up, so rather than bruting my way through it and risking breaking anything, I thought I'd ask you kind folks.
I attached a picture of each end - I'm guessing I need to remove the little circlip in the second picture? Do I just use some pliers to pull it out, or is there a certain technique to it?
