Good Morning Guys

'm looking to buy a prawn pump and see you get it in Alu as well (Must be lighter as well)

Who is using a Alu. one and is it worth buying?... or should I get the S/Steel one?

Thanks for any advice.
regards

Thanks TA, yes, the S/S one is just R100 more, its not a "price" issue, its more the weight and durability of the 2.

Let's stay with the proven one. I will get the S/S.

Is there any difference between the stainless and plastic ones in terms of functionality?

I think the plastic ones have bigger diameter pipe, using a tennis ball for the suction ??

I do see this manufacturer don't use the tennis ball, but a "High Performance Sponge Suction Plug"

The Novateur Bait Pump Range.Available in the following 4 body tube models:
- Stainless Steel
- Black Aluminium
- Blue Aluminium
- Plastic

They both work the same and yes the plastic ones are lighter but just dnt last..and the stainless steel ones are much more tougher and durable and the spares for them are very easy to find..

Plastic and stainless steel work both identical in terms of functionality..but still I would highly recommend stainless steel ones..you just can't beat them..and they last for years.

I prefer the PVC one. Bigger diameter, more suction. Works like a BomB.;)::tight:

I made my own stainless steel pump using a squash ball and then flat rubber washers. It worked great but after a while it got too heavy that my arms ached. I then went over to a PVC pump with a rubber cup washer and found it to be superior to the stainless pump in that it is much lighter and sucks so hard that sometimes you cannot pull the handle when a large blob of mud is too dry or hard. My pump wore out at the front end but the tube was easily replaced. Any plumbing supply shop stocks PVC tubing. My stainless pump ended up being cut up and made into two rod holders.

Hi guys, I forgot to mention that I now carry an extra tube in the boot of my car that is ready made with me in case I have to repair the pump.
