Experience with 5'RACE?

We are having some problems with failures of 5'RACE of human (relatively
rare) mRNA, using the BD/Clontech kit. Regular PCR using the mRNA works
We have gone through several replacements of the kit with the same and
different lot numbers, but 5'RACE fails, even with the "positive control"
templates. I am not doing this myself (not conversant enough with the
technique), but the colleague who is doing the work has done so (in another
lab) in the past with success using a kit from Clontech. 3'Race using
components from the same kit does work.
Has anyone had better experiences recently with the BD/Clontech kit? Or
can you recommend another manufacturer?
