Try and get a Bambi max as your primary bucket and the older style single shot as spare.

Hello again, thanks for all the replies and assistance. A quick update. Client has requested a single-shot Bambi bucket and Does not want Bambi max. So thanks to all if you who sent info about Bambi Max. Sorry but that info has only just come through. I’m just the messenger.
