Decapping while sitting in the recliner watching football sounds right up my alley :D

First I've heard of it. It appears to be a neat gadget but I don't sit in front of the boob tube for hours wanting to deprime cases. Besides the one who has to be obeyed, says there is a proper place for reloading activities and that place is not the family room....yes dear. LOL :)

Kinda like a Lee hand press, but smaller. 'Course, you can't flare or size them in front of the tube.

Don't get the point of a separate tool/step for decapping when the sizer (or sometimes the expander) die automatically does that for you. Now, I do prime cases in front of the TV.

Some folks like to deprime before ultrasonic cleaning so the primer pockets get cleaned.
Others, like benchrest shooters use the same neck sized cases over & over again at the shooting bench.

Otherwise for the rest of us, I agree with you.
Whats the point?
Your reloading dies are going to do it anyway.

I currently deprime at my bench, I use the resize die but DEPRIME ONLY.

I prefer to tumble and clean my brass after depriming to get the pocket clean, and I don't like running dirty brass through the sizing die.

So, the option of being able to deprime w/o being tied to the bench is appealing...
