Does anyone have one of these? any good? looking at buying one... as the S/S plastic one is not the best.

I use one. I’m new at the hobby but in my opinion it works well and worth using.

Make your own filter, I made one once out of parts from my still, it is modular for a reason, worked great but I never bothered using a filter again after learning to do my cuts right.

Highly recommend unless you are a master at cutting.

I find I can process more product by using the shoulders. Fine balance between quality and quantity.

Otherwise I only end up with about 2l of pure from a 100l wash. Carbon gives me 3-4l.

That sounds like you are tossing a lot of good ethanol there rolls.
Is that through you pot still? Surely not your boka.
Should get atleast 1.5-2L of 95.6% from a 25L wash.
Carbon will only really clean tails up.
