Been a rash of quiet mouse in the soda forum lately. Thought I would toss this out there......show me in your opinion what your toughest tab top soda can is. Also, what type of tab top do you feel is the toughest to find?

I've always liked the dog bone zips with the names on top lid. Don't see them to often. LEON.

In Canada the unusual ones for soda would be the 7up, Howdy and Faygo that had a fan tab from CCS...not sure of any other brands with it off hand. Then there is the D ring or reverse ring from CC...there is a few brands with it but not as common as the standard PT. My favorite is my Canada dry tonic with the small straight pull , the top has the ridges in it as well as 'Pat Pend'...introduced in around 1965 by CC, another product that may have it is Grand Prix according to this 1966 ad, this style of top is impossible to find...at lest it has been for me, but it was a short lived top.

As far as toughness I would say the dog bone. But I also haven't seen that many "U" tabs
