My problem with the hop-blocker is that I do not have a Blichmann kettle ( you need to be able to easily remove and install the hop-blocker for regular cleaning). It is best suited for the boiler maker. My installation was more or less permanent and did nit work well. The experience might be different for those who have boiler makers. To be honest, the reviews that I have read on the hop blocker are all to the extremes: people either love them or hate them. There does not seem to be any middle ground.
Now for the HooRocket - Blichmann's hop back and Randall! It is great. It adds a nice hop aroma to my brews and does filter out the hop debris.
Finally for those legs, I am willing to part with them. What do you think they are worth? I think that the original purchase price was $35.00.
