    I loved this kit! This was my first go at making maple syrup and it went very very well. Collected for a week and I think I’ll end up with a liter plus of syrup. The only thing was one of the bag rings came apart but only at the end when I was taking the bags down; not enough of an issue that I would take stars away from this product. When I find more trees on my property and an ATV to drive around to the other trees to collect sap, I will be back to by more.

    These bag holders are great. Hold well in high wind. Bags are durable. Love that they are marked. Would recommend the set or any part of this kit separately.

    Great system, easy to install, simple and fast to empty and hang back on tree. Game changer for us. Absolutely love the blue bags. The keyhole system to hang on the spile makes it wind proof. All around well thought out product. Storage at the end of the season will be simple and takes up very little room. I’m switching all my taps to this system next year. All of my equipment will now fit in a large tote, instead of 5 gallon plastic buckets all over the place. Smoky Lake is the best.

    I shared a spile, bag and holder with my 10 year old grand daughter. Directed her in drilling the hole and tapping in the spile and hanging the bag. Then she was on her own to empty the bag each day. We would cook down the sap for her.
    She has been so excited and responsible. Thank you from my wife and I who have never tapped a tree in our over 70 years of life.
    I have just ordered another beginner kit so that our grand daughter will be able to tap more trees.
    What a blessing this has been to her (and us) and what a lesson in outdoor responsibility.
    Thank you, BTW the equipment you have sent us has been very quality.
