    Hi Guys

    thought i would share with you my new toy, it might be the first and only ATI Bubble master 300 in SA, I had the 250 for years and made the mistake of selling it, but found out that the made a 300 so i had to have it.

    It just landed i have just been unpacking it and what a BEAST it is. Will post pics once she is up and running.

    Wow never knew they still make those
    @irie ivan Those are the old original psk2500 pumps and not the new controllable pumps. 1 of the New controllable pumps at full power puts out the same amount of air as all 3 of those pumps together.

    Agreed, at full power they do put out the same amount of air, BUT the Bubble master will out skimmer it hands down. My old ati 250 bubble master would out skiming it, and who the hell wants a controlable skimmer pump, so retarted! A skimmer pump must run flat out.

    I was closeto buying the power cone 250, after reading up on a LOT of forums I decided no, as there are issues. It would have been have more than half the price for me to go for the pwoer cone 250, but at the end of the day I know the ati bubble master is one of the all time king skimmers.

    I will load a pic of my old ati 250 bubble master and show u some of it skimmer mate.

    LOL, makes me wonder why he would develop it...... Perhaps the same reason he developed the Bubblemaster, or the sunpower, or the Sunmodul, or the gridwheel...... But hey, what the hell does he know...

    Awesome skimmer! I'm itching for a new skimmer myself. Time to let go of the Reef Octopus Bubble Blaster and get the real deal:whistling:
