I just got a new fatsac, but did not buy new connectors. I was going to use the ones off the old bag, but I can not unthread the old connectors. Is their a trick to removing?

Ive herd heating them to help release the glue works. Normally i just buy new ones as this is such a pain lol.

I have read guys heating them connectors and they will just pop out with a little persuasion.

Not sure what your original sacs were but Mike is right - heat is the ticket for most stuck stuff. Also WM did a nice little write up on it that may help.

Depending on how many you're changing out new might be well worth it to avoid destroying the old usable/sellable sacs!
