I dissagree. Several rigs have been successfully converted away from
Sweep tubes, over to 6146's, or 807's, for that matter.
A Worthwhile investment, as far as I'm concerned. Sweep tubes are more
expensive and don't last as long. 6146's are rugged. They've been
through the fire before, and they'll stand a whole lot more.
