I'm a wine lover, but not a wine maven, and certainly no corkscrew 
maven.  But I do get Consumer's and was wondering about the corkscrews too.
I once heard that, when it comes to the actual screw part that goes into 
the cork, an open-center coil is better than the screw style with a solid 
center.  Yet I tend to break corks when I use open-center corkscrews, but 
not when I use the solid-center, wing-type style.  Can the wineys on the 
list enlighten me as to why the open-coil is supposed to be better, and 
possibly why I typically get better results with the solid-center coils?
As for Lubos, please feel free to write me off-list, since this is OT to 
coffee matters.  And roasties, please forgive the OT post.
