Wanted to migrate to corked bottles and having trouble getting a clean corking. Using a Ferrari double action corker with synthetic corks.

Even when at the deepest setting, the corks stick out the top, and has a little "muffin top" where the top edges of the cork sticks out over the lip of the bottle mouth, with a deep indentation in the center of the cork from the plunger.

Perhaps the corks are just too soft?

the depth of the plunger can be adjusted which should correct the cork exposure. could you be using the wrong size corks causing our indentation and muffin top?
