Epilator removing pubic hair.

Howdy. I have an epilator I love. It removes my hair perfectly. Except in my pubic area. Now I have trimmed the hair with the trimmer attachment and the upper parts and parts along my leg are easily removed but I can not seem to get the skin taut enough to get the part closer to the outer lips, or to even begin in the inner lips.
I had an original epilady that died about a year ago and I used to use it for this, but I didn't need to pull the skin as taut as I do with this one, which is the Braun Silk-epil. I have posted about issues with it before, right after I got it and that is where figuring out the trimmer attachment came into play.
The only place I seem to have issues with the taut-ness (is that a word) of the skin is around the pubic area. I have to really pull at the skin in the upper parts to get the hair to come out.
I have extremely fine hair all over and my pubic hair isn't terribly thick or coarse. Not sure if that comes into play or not. I do have to pull my skin a lot to get my airpit hair out, but that hair is so fine and sparse from years of waxing and epilating that nothing pretty much is able to grab it.

Suggestions? Is being hair free from the roots a pipe dream for me?

Thanks a bunch

ooh, i'm sorry i can't help but are you otherwise happy with epilating? is it tedious?
I wanna get professionally waxed but I can't find any reputable waxers here, and at home waxing is a mess.
