Has anyone used these? Plz tell me a lil more about them if you have. Thinking about getting a few i just wish there was a way to demo one first.

Bigc07 uses them I believe.

BigC07 had them (Vortech MP40 now...). They seem the same as Hydor Koralias, but don't use magnets, instead use a large suction cup (clamps down so it holds firm). Don't know the prices on them, but they can't be used on wavemakers (like old HK's). Other than that, they're about the same. Only drawback, IMO, is they don't use magnets.

Cool, I like the company i use thier heaters and havent had any problems and they have a lifetime warranty. These look a little better than the korilas imo

Oh, one thing I did like about them is they have clips to take them apart. I broke a good many Koralias twisting them...

They have some pretty sweet ones for nano's about to come out. They ramp up and down in gph on their own though

I have two of the Model 700 ( 700GPH ) they push the water around my 72 Bow front just fine. I like them because they do not push a jet stream of water. The flow is spread over a wide area so no one spot get a blast of current.

It was a bit on the strong side. It stirred up everything. Between it and my pi**ed off Maroon Clown I couldn't see anything. I am going to try a different location and try again.
