Then maybe I need you to come over and show me how to get them off the corkscrew without a fight once they are out of the bottle. The plastic corks we’ve tried it on don’t want to come off once they are out of the bottle - it’s like the plastic conforms to it and doesn’t want to let go (WD-40 has crossed my mind, but somehow that just seems wrong ;)). It is harder to drive it through those corks in the first place too. So if the point is to make getting the cork out easier, and I believe it is with the Rabbit, then I can’t say it does the job with those kind of corks. We have the original Rabbit, too, not a cheap knockoff.
That said, though, if you what you want for your friend is to look cool opening a bottle Absolute, then for sure, the Laguioles is the way to go.
