    My thought is the balls in the CV2's are probably gummed up a fair bit after 1 season and the loss in sap from not getting good vacuum into the tree would counteract the potential increase. The extra long adapter-to-CV2 would also be prone to separating and losing vacuum, even if it does seal tight.

    Makes sense. Thanks for your reply. I sucked it up and bought some new CV2s instead of going the cheapskate/experimental route.
