Not worth $50
It just doesn't work. At first, I had a bad seal on the gas line tube which caused beer to leak out of joint on the valve. I fixed that with some Teflon tape, but even after that it still didn't produce results that were worth spending the $50. The main problem is stability. If the Last Straw tubes were solidly locked into place then perhaps this would work, but the tubes twist occasionally, changing the angle and widening the gap that is cut into the stopper. So the air would leak out of the gap or anywhere except the valve where it was supposed to. The construction of the compression ring is designed so that you as you hold the bottle filler normally, with the lines down, you cannot see the grove that is supposed to catch a rim. VERY ANNOYING. And it doesn't compress much at all; it is still able to slide up and down which means even the pressure of the bottle will cause it to slide so you have to hold it, but unless you push down perfectly strait it will break the seal against the tubes. The foam will form and then when you let go you get a nice splash of foam EVERYWHERE, including your face. NOT WORTH THE BUY.

works great after the learning curve
Once I figured out the technique, this attachment worked flawlessly. If you're used to capping on foam, etc., you will make a mess with this. Stop filling when the beer hits the bottom of the stopper and you will have perfect fills with no waste. For beers with high levels of carbonation, you can squeeze the clamp a little tighter for even better performance. I have been using this to bottle beers for competitions and have experienced no carbonation loss from the bottling process. I love it.

Last straw is great but once you add the counterflow filler you will never go back. Super easy to assemble, easy to use, easy to clean

Works well. Can no longer use 750ml bottles
The Foamless Finish does reduce the amount of foam when filling bottles at serving pressure but some foam does still occur. Not a big deal. The biggest selling point is being able to keep the bottle under pressure while filling.

However, the biggest drawback is that you will be unable to fill 750ml bottles when the Foamless finish is attached to the Last Straw. The bottom of the Last Straw does not reach the bottom of a 750ml even when the Foamless Finish is at the top of the Last Straw.

Doesn't work well
This piece is a good idea, but doesn't work well. I couldn't get it into place and keep it there. It was just in my way. The clamp didn't work well and I ended up just takking it off to get it out of my way. The last straw works fine without it if you have proper carbonation in the keg and chilled bottles. With chilled bottles you'll have very little foaming and lost beer.

Not too bad
It doesnt seal perfectly, but had a lot of foaming with the bottle filler alone, this definitely helped a bit

Not super happy with this.
The valve popped off. I was able to just push it back in. Not sure if that's why I can't seem to get a good seal. Might be user error, but I made a huge mess, lost a ton of beer, and only got three bottles filled that I'm praying maintained good carb level for the competition I'm sending them too. Maybe there's a learners curve, but after first use, I'm not happy at all with this product.

With this will I still need to overcarb my kegs to maintain bottle carbonation?
A shopper on Jan 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You do not want to over carb the beer. When properly balanced, the units will maintain close to the exact volumes of CO2 initially carbonated. This foamless finish just makes that even easier to obtain and reduce any gas lost during filling by turning the purging bottle filler into a true counter pressure filler.
$50?
A shopper on Dec 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yea, $50 paper weight. Totally worthless, I gave it every chance and could not get it to seal. The slit that goes over the liqiud tube does not seal in multiple places. Leaking = no counterpressure. Wish I could turn the $ into a batch of beer.
Why is the bottle in the video full with foam if it's called the "formless" finish?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I've bottled several beers with this tool. Hefeweizen will always foam, Belgians and other high carbonation beers tend to as well. My light lagers and other more "normal" beers are ok. Work quick, the longer it goes the foamier it gets. I haven't used the additional attachment yet, but my previous comment about that got deleted. I paid for the bottling tool because it was "foamless" but my beers foamed like crazy with certain styles.
Was the cut in the main body supposed to already be there, or are we supposed to cut it ourselves to get it around the liquid line?
A shopper on Mar 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Your foamless finish will already have a slice to slip over the metal tubing. You should not need to cut anything to make the foamless finish work.
Will the Last Straw be modified (lengthened) in the future to accommodate 750 ml bottles and the Foamless Finish?
