My older plastic cans have the solid plastic neck like these and are in great shape. The newer ones with the flex neck have all broken much earlier.Check out my prized cans. One on left: brand new, unused 1980's can bought @ flea market last year for $8.
Center can nearly new, obtained a few years ago. Traded two pos new style 5 gal cans for it to an unsuspecting victim.
One on the right i've owned over 20 years currently semi retired/show piece.
