    For all you devout Atwood guys, what's the smallest size but most efficient cap lifter you own? Looking for a consistent one-pull lift but in the smallest package. Steel or Ti wouldn't matter as it would be negligible in weight given my criteria.

    Own a mini pry in Ti and it's good at lifting cap in one pull, but it bites the glass sometimes as the mouth of the caplifter is a bit over-extended, which isn't a problem really, but I own other less-renown lifters that pull the cap in one pull smoothly and without the bite. But have heard reviews of tools such as the Keyton which require two pulls to remove a cap.

    Glass bite isn't my concern as I can sometimes correct for it, but am wondering what smaller minimalist tools with cap lifter I need to put the feelers out for.

    Gasbaby and Ringbaby appear to have good cap-lifting geometry.

    I'm surprised nobody's responded to this. Guess I'll give it a shot.

    The mini Prybabies are probably your best bet. The newer P17s and mini P15s are all consistent one-pull lifts and have quite a small footprint in the pocket. No glass bite since the bottom edge of the caplifter is straight and also rounded. The Ti mini P15s are also quite light.

    The Ringbabies are good too. However, the ring increases the width quite a bit compared to say the mini P15.

    In all honesty, I still prefer the full-size Prybabies, the G5 specifically. They are a one-pull lift and cause little deformation to the cap. The cap can be reused for a little bit. It's also good if you like to collect bottle caps since the caps don't have any dents in the middle of the cap and the edges are still quite round.

    Also, I can one-pop with a Keyton. I think it's a technique thing. I place my middle finger in the Keyton's choil and place my thumb over the top edge near the pry tip when I open bottles.

    Hope that helps!

    Oooh, is that a Ti Mini P15 I see?

    How's it working so far?

    Hope my advice wasn't complete bull.

    Working great and light enough. I might procure one more Atwood over time with same intention ofactually EDCing (no safe queens ever) but it had better perform 100% in all aspects of returns on the design. So far the mini P15 has delivered.
