Best outboard flushing muffs?

 Got a pair of rectangle muffs but the seal onto the engine is terrible. Got them from bcf and pretty quickly returned them. I live in Baldivis and have poor water pressure also which doesn’t help one bit.

thinking of going the round cups or the dual feed ones? I got a Honda 200bf also

 if you've got poor tap pressure, You could get one of those blue drums off gumtree for a cheap price, cut it in half and then put the leg in it for flushing.

 The dual feed ones are great. Much better flow than my old single flow even tho it really shouldn't be

 I had the same sealing issues but they get better with use, mine are fine now but I was looking for a softer pair after the first few uses

Plus 1 for Dual Feed

I was having all sorts of issues getting the telltale to run on my 150hp Yammies but not a problem since getting the dual feed one. You can get them at lots of places, but I got mine from All Boats. Best investment you can make

 On my old honda I had to use round  muffs and tape up the hole under the caviataion plate for it to work.
