API 172097-2PK-PHIL First Impressions

Really strong grip.

The only thing i wish was different is that the net was bigger. It works great for my tank, you may want to get a bigger pad for larger tanks. Also love the ability to quickly change tools with snap on head feature! Great product and worth every penny. I found the key to keeping the algae under control is to clean the glass regularly. Easy to install the blade, seems to be well made. If you wait months, it gets so thick and tough, it's very hard to remove.

API 172097-2PK-PHIL Final Thoughts

Very easy to use.

I have a redsea 170 that is only about 35 gallons. The only down side would be that the main section that holds the blade is a bit long. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface. 5 and a medium sized one for my 100 gallon reef tank. This cleaning tool set has been working wonderfully. It needs the extra support of the thicker pole. If I applied too much pressure, the handle would snap.
