    Default cdl signature spouts

    Who uses them? Pros and Cons... worried about the 45 degree angle and tubing tool.

    We started to use them last season. Love them. Don't need tubing tool to install them. They are seasonal, so we will use a different color every season. We used Leader for many years. We had an issue 2 years ago with the heads freezing and cracking. So decided to try the CDL signature spouts.

    i don't mind them, but i don't like them as much as the leader spouts. the area you hammer to pound them in is real small, and the y shape is a PITA with most tubing tools. but, they do work well!

    I know you're talking about regular tubing installations, but I used them last year for drop lines into buckets. Just put them on by hand, and they stayed on. Couldn't pull most of them apart at the end of season clean up. Wouldn't want to do a thousand of them by hand though...lol...

    Yes. There's a small single barb on them. They push on and don't fall off.
