Has anybody ever used the Karl Jenter Kit and how succesful were they? Would you recommend it again?

I have a Jenter kit which I have used a few times with good results but have since learnt how to graft which is much quicker and less intrusive to the colony.

Don't know where you are in the UK but Gandalf White Wizard runs queen rearing courses in Kent (I think). Good luck.

I have used both Jenter and cupkit and am now using cupkit exclusively and not the cage just the cups on cell bars and cages to contain any early emerging queens, beauty of it is you can gfaft straight into the plastic cups when you have the skill, just patience and a 000 paintbrush.
