However, not all racking canes have the anti-trub tips on them. If that tip is missing, you still have a racking cane!

Getting a little picky aren't we? In that regard, not all racking canes have a bend at the top. Some are simply a straight tube.

OK, you've got me there - but every racking cane I've seen for sale has the bend, whereas most I've seen don't automatically include the anti-sediment tip.
