Plastic Raw water strainers (engine)

Anyone have any thoughts/experience with Vetus polypro raw water strainers? I would love to go bronze but I cannot find a bottom feed/outlet strainer. I'm looking specifically at the Vetus FTR470 and the FTR330. Any info or recommendations would be appreciated.

Re: Plastic Raw water strainers (engine)

My two cents is that vetus normally puts out pretty decent hardware.

If you have another 6 inches or so of width, groco makes 90 degree hose barbs that you can use on conventional style strainers to feed them from the bottom on a bulkhead mount.
