It was a shame I missed making it to The Anglers the other week but I WILL make it to a Reality Check meet one day!
I have been using the Silhouettes since I started pumping in Feb’08 and having been overseas a couple of times have ended up with a ‘stock pile’ that would put DAV to shame (not a hard task) but have tried half a dozen Quick-Sets.
Touch wood - I had no problems and will continue to use them once the Silhouettes run out. I am sure once I have used more Quick-Sets I will have my share of failed sets but everyone is different and may not have the problems or as many of them that others seem to have, not going to know until we try.
I have managed to get a hold of a couple of inserters at no cost, all I can put it down to is I must have smiled nicely over the phone. I agree I wouldn’t be paying for them at $60 each. The ‘back-up’ sets I carry with me and have stashed around the place are all Silhouettes simply because they are simple to insert and don’t require any additional devices although manually inserting a Quick-Set doesn’t seem complicated.
