Looking for a new and reliable capper - chose based on reviews from this and other sites.
Brent W on Dec 6, 2019
because a 29mm champagne bell is available if I need one. I did not see that for other bottlers.

will it work with 29mm caps?
Francisco Santana on Jan 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Buy the optional 29mm bell as this one is standard 26mm.
Should I be pulling down with enough force that it fully depresses and makes a load sound? I feel like it is going to break the bottles, but it seems like less force isn't going to get a good seal.
Nathan Lazur on Nov 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Nathan - Yes, you want to pull down with enough force so that it fully depresses and crimps the cap evenly around the bottle opening but enough force to leave an indent on the very top of the cap is a sign of too much pressure. It may feel as though that the bottle will break but standard bottles should withstand upwards of 200-300 PSI.
Will this work with 12oz "stubby" twist-off bottles?
BEST ANSWER: This product will not work with twist off bottles.
No matter what I try, never get a clicking sound. And bottle is stuck in capper .Have to pry it free. Using standard American bottles. ???
Chet Stockton on Dec 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I experienced similar behavior 1st time use. But next time, I carefully adjusted the height to insure that downward pressure on the lever actually completes the cap seal. It will resist, then release when crimping the cap. Cheers.
Will it work with Stella Artois bottles and other bottles with a thicker neck?
Daniela Nettles on Jan 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Daniela, unlike a hand capper this product does not grab the neck of the bottle. the crimping takes place solely on the lip area, which is an bottling industry standard. please note that it is a good idea to fasten the capper to a solid, stable surface.

Replace your two handed capper!
My two handed capper was getting loose, harder to align, less reliable on first squeeze. Bought this to solve all that and save time. Mission accomplished. Mounted it to a spare board 1x12x12”. Solid.

Works great and cuts bottling time in half! No more broken bottles. I had been using the hand capper that came with my starter kit and after about 10- 5 gallon batches, it started to feel "rough" as if it was wearing out. I got to thinking that if this breaks in the middle of bottling a batch, I'm SOL. So I opted to upgrade this bench capper. I'm glad I did! I mounted it on a cutting board with rubber pads on the back for stability and it works fantastic. My wife had a real problem with me drilling holes into her kitchen countertop for some reason! Doesn't slide on the counter and I can bottle by myself easily. I'll keep my hand capper as a backup but I doubt I'll ever need it. This capper appears well built and sturdy.
When I first got it, I tried it out with some caps and empty bottles that I had. When the capper released the crimped cap, it made a loud bang and sounded like either it or the bottle broke. For every bottle! I thought I was going to have to return it but one phone call to More Beer solved the problem. They asked if the caps were wet (as they would be in sanitizer before bottling) or dry. DUH!! I never thought of that. So I sprayed some Star-San on the caps and it worked like a charm. Thanks More Beer!!

Works well, needs to be mounted...
I am happy with this Bench Bottle Capper, but to be effective and cap several bottles at a time you will need to mount it to something. I have mounted this capper to a 12" x 12" piece of 3/4 ply and it is mobile and works well.

Works Great.
Works great. Allows me to cap the bottles that don't have the broad band under opening. Our local brewery gave our club an opened pallet of bottles, but with the narrow band, hand cappers don't work. I made a sharpie mark on the side for a quick reference to my standard bottle size.
The pad on the base has a retention tip in the middle that pushed up on it when i bolted it to a board, preventing it from laying flat. Easy fix though.

Excellent capper, with only one small issue
I used to have a Colonna bench capper, and while that worked better than the wing style capper, it was mostly plastic, and just felt a bit rickety. The Colt Strong capper kills the Colonna! Height adjustment is much easier, feels way more solid, and doesn't leave that annoying indent in the cap (making it easier to write on the cap). I have only discovered one issue, and really, it's very small. I often use 750 ml amber champagne bottles that accept 26mm crowns (yes, 26mm). The capping bell is too narrow to make it past the ridge that is designed to secure the cage (if you use cork and cage), so a 26mm crown cannot be fully secured. Again, most people aren't doing this, so it won't be an issue. In fact, I only wanted to do it once, when I didn't want to waste corks and cages for a particular beer I was bottling. Aside from that, this is an excellent capper, and if I had it to do over, I'd buy it again.

Good capper.
After you get used to the force needed to cap a bottle, it works very well.
