Best Lobster pots

Ive pulled good lobster and crab from the west coast for 30 years, just for fun whilst on holiday ... the pots we use are my late grandfathers design, and they work, but they are falling apart gradually and limit the size of lobsters that can get into the pot. With the RIB .. I can venture to new coastline quickly ..which is interesting .. as i know the best tecniques for setting .. my question is ... Ive been out of the loop for pot technology completely and seek any advice from those of you in the know, as to what to buy, as I think its time to get some modern gear

Worst case, you can always try the Whitby angling forum...
Sea Fishing Forum - Shore, Boat & Kayak Fishing

...there'll be plenty of salty dogs on there that'll have an opinion.
