    The Preston equivalents appear to be fixed at each end with just one solid tab instead of four small bendy ones. Before I buy a load of these to replace the last few Drennans, I'd be interested to know what other forum members recommend...
    Ive been having similar problems with them and sometimes when I'm not banging them out

    Have a look at the website of FEEDERLANDS LTD . Several different sizes. Extremely good quality at a very reasonable price. I doubt you could break these.

    Those look good, John - I've already ordered some Korum feeders, but have bookmarked that page for future reference!

    I use them and I am a clumsy s*d and have not managed to break one.

    Interesting - a few years ago I always used Drennan feeders in particular the oval blockends for sessions on the Ribble. Suddenly I started getting all the problems highlighted above and judging by the number of such feeders that I've found cracked up on the river bank so have others. These days I stick to Kamasan black caps.

    I make my own feeders out of hair curlers, lead flashing, shrink tube and large rubber O rings. Got an assortment on eBay at the moment.

    Forgot to add that the River Ribble is for the most part a swimfeeder consuming monster (in my experience) so therefore you need items that will take some hammer.

    ...or home-made ones that only cost you pennies to lose?

    John,this is the OP's perfect site,not mine however,I'm not sure what the plus points are with a cage feeder,against a plastic tube style feeder that is...
