how do you put in/remove freak inserts. I can't get my brothers out and need to switch from .693 to .689 for my xballs tommorow because I'm using his ion while my vs2 gets fixed.

Stick you finger in it till it sticks and then pull your finger out. Or you could prolly take a flat head screw driver and push it out but then you risk stratching the insert. So I would try the finger first.

stick a barrel swab through it, usually the insert will stick to the swab and just slide out with it.

you throw the thing, except you dont let go of it. the insert will fly out. try to aim it towards your brother. if its one of the stainless inserts, it'll hurt. if it's aluminum, it'll be funny.

I stick my finger in until it sticks, then flex the muscles and pull it out. My inserts stay in far too well to come out back flinging the back.

I got it out and put a miniscule amountof oil on the outside to make it slide easier

You can also put a bit of dow-33 on the o-ring to make inserts slide better, oil swells o-rings so its not the best choice in this circumstance.
