Sounds great you know you can make you own from copper also way better than a plastic one

Bought mine after breaking my third plastic. Think of all the money you'll save just from not having to replace them.
Now if they'd just make a SS hydometer.

The HB supply co. I order my stuff from accidentally sent me a ss racking cane. Freebie! It's a long one though so the only downer is it's tough to clean.

I also got a ss mesh screen to put over the end of it - far better at filtering out fruit and other random floaties than the little plastic deal I started with.
