At the joint end where it connects to plastic on the metal just bend it up, down, sideways.Don't be afraid to REALLY bend it in all directions.I did mine cause I got p@%&!!# off at the stiffness and just started bending them.I even bent the cord part!!!!!!!!! Kinda like a S snake move and even wrapped it around a pencil!!!!!!!! None of them broke and there MUCH more flexible.I ordered a spare set and have done it to all of them.Nothing happened to any of them but more flexiablity :D
:rollseyes: bummer. That's one thing that really bothers me about the Boye's...I tried them once but never use them. Love the flexibility an weight of the Denise's too much to bother with that. Since you already have them though, what a PITA that they are so tough. I'm sure someone has already checked....does their website have any tips?
the boiling water doesn't melt them b/c you only do it for a moment or two. I did it to mine and it's intended moreso to get the kinks out than to make them more flexible or softer. I don't use mine at all anymore but I did when I first got them....got spoiled on addis..
