MP Rotators, recent annoyance.

I am a pretty big user of mp rotators and really love their flexibility for so many things. All that aside, I have recently had a far larger number of "sticky" mp rotators than ever before.

It has been especially prevalent on the 2000 series for me. Of the past 3 bags of 10 MP2000's I have bought, at least 3 from each bag will be jammed at the top. Usually this is a minor annoyance, you can wiggle it and it will pop free and spin it a bit and problem is generally solved. Yet recently, they are all really jammed in there. I have to remove the nozzle and forcefully press on the bottom to pop it up. I will do this and reset it, then go to turn it back on and it is jammed up again after setting back into position. Not sure if the mold is different or what, but after 4 attempts with a handful of rejects I finally just had to pull them out and replace brand new with brand new. Anyone else noticed this at all in recent months?

I use very few of them, so haven't seen this flaw. That rotor probably has less room for error than any other mechanism.

At least it works better than RB's.
