I am looking to squeeze bottles for gels, and I was able to find a good deal on Rakuten for the PowerBar ones (3 for ¥1,000). Are they any good? Or should I opt for others (e. g. from Gu) that are significantly more expensive?

I have the powerbar one. Maybe they have slightly updated the nozzle since I bought it 8years ago, but the body looks to be still kind of hard plastic. Consequently you have to suckle the gel out, which is annoying especially for the more solid ones and limited quantities. Still better than having to deal with one time use satchels on the bike though.

Thanks. I have ordered a set of three for half the price than e. g. the Goo one on Wiggle. To be honest, the one made by Guu looks better, but perhaps not 3x–4x better.
