for PNWG VI and visit mcKona Koffee Paradise Kafe you'll not be having

pulls from our Linea:-) All Kafe shots pulled nekkid using Synesso
 slope
walled 18g (light) triple baskets (versus Synesso's or LM's 21g
 straight
walled triple baskets). Trust me oft' fast paced shot after shot nekkid
pulls 'taint exactly what I'd call novice style build and pulls.
 Contraire,
your technique best be spot on or you'll have one hell of a mess! And
 why
have more metal than necessary 'stealing' part of the elixir of life on
 it's
way from the puck to the demi'? Not to mention nekkid PF's much easier
 to
keep clean, virtually nowhere for funky residual oils to hide trapped,
 like
with spouts. Makes quick mid-day no soak scrubby cleanings quite
 effective.
I passed thinking I was beyond needing nekkid PF some time ago.
Amen Brother... amen!  I love them for the cleanliness alone.

End going nekkid in a commercial let alone home environment diatribe:-)

Good time to throw this out. I was at a open house recently and a COE
judge was pulling shots on a La Marzocco and I asked if he had a
Nekkid and he said that the shot quality was not as good? I didn't ask
why. Wish I had cause unless it keeps the heat a little more balanced
I can't figure it out.

The quality wasn't as good becuase of channeling in his shots that
spray everywhere!  I bought a very nice nekkid brass PF for my
Cremina.  Much better shots going crotchless!

Les   I'm using Richards brass pf on my Cremina and Maximatic and
really like it too.
What a great opportunity that was.

6) From: Barry Luterman
I used naked until about a year ago. Somehow I drifted back to the original
PF. Seldom had a bad shot with the naked PF and I liked the heavier brass
feel of the regular PF and it's heat retention. Now I remember what
happened. My naked PF started to vibrate and turn and once actually became
discharged from the machine. Sprayed coffee all over the kitchen. After
cleaning up I changed to the regular PF. Maybe I'll go back a try a few
shots naked just to make sure I haven't gotten sloppy in my technique.
Although, it is hard to get sloppy with a Ridgeline.

Can you elaborate on "Richards brass pf"?

8) From: MichaelB
I'm using the same brass bottomless pf on my Cremina. Cost a pretty Penney
but worth every cent! Only downside - it's made my regular pfs obsolete.

9) From: Edward Bourgeois
Tom  Due to the fact that there are no 49mm nekkid pf on the market
for Oly Creminas and a couple other fits, a member on H-B had some
custom made at a local shop for a group buy. They came out beautiful!
High polished brass. No more are available :-(.
