Filter Socks Mesh or Felt?

For those of you using filter socks, do you use the Mesh or Felt? Either one better than the other or last longer, with washing and switching out every few days?

Thanks

I use the felt. Clogs fast but that's because it's doing its job. Will the mesh even catch anything? I figured the mesh ones were for holding carbon, etc.

Felt works the best you can't really wash and reuse rinsing it will only work for a day or two I replace mine every month with 800gph pumping through it

I have felt now, and need to buy some more, I wash the felt ones, with bleech, and have no problems with them, but I wanted to get a few more sets, so wanted to get feedback as to what others are using.
