My specialized floor pump my lbs sold me(its their shop pump model) works great but when I pull it off the valve it comes off so hard I end up bending the presta valve. My old floor pump never did this, but it gave up after years of good service. Will this loosen up? Is there another trick I can use?

I had the same problem. After snapping three valve stems off I returned it. I got the same model, but check it before I took it home.
Check the chuck.Spoke Wrench

Sometimes if you unscrew the end of the chuck about 1/4 to 1/2 turn it doesn't hold onto the valve stem quite so tenaceously.
Thanks, guys.n.m.koala
