If you are still worried about it kinking, then after annealing it, plug one end with a bit of wax and then fill the tube with water. Freeze it hard as...

We've seen this maybe five times in the past six or seven years, all on 237 lanterns that the owner had left the pricker in the up position while preheating the generator. I recall three being just a big fat split peeled open like a banana and a couple that went into two pieces.
