Hello,

I bought a new salsa stem for my y foil. I had a heck of a time getting it in cause it was so darn tight. It is in now but it could go in further but again its too tight to get all the way in. (this could sound perverted to some..... LOL)

Is this normal for salsa stems? Would it be alright to tap it with a rubber mallet?

Thanks!

Assuming you bought the right size,It's probably the thick paint on the quill that is causing the problem.

Use a scotchbrite pad or fine steel wool to "feather" thick paint to desired insertion point.
