The Clyde is basically identical to a Cheddar Puffin and the Avon is basically identical to a Cheddar Pintail, but both made with modern materials and using modern manufacturing techniques.

Both available cheaper as kits as well.

I dipped my toe in the water last year and had a Clevendon unit
Great and works a treat, I would very highly recommend one
Not that expensive new at the side of other items
Works great
Hope this helps
