Ah, that was the catch.

But then 15 years is quite a long time... and if they do produce a 20 year one, saves the old back n what not.

I'd junk my 2x3l's in favour of a 3L carbon if it lasted 15-20.

Will look into it.

The decant off a 12L 300 is doing well. So far i've saved 10 on filling the 3L's. I only have to do that another 20x and it's payed for itself.
