    It has been a few years since EcoTech Marine released the EcoTech Elements Coral Glue and now the company has released its*EcoTech Elements Coral Propagation Kit. The kit includes four tools, glue and coral frag plugs in a swanky bamboo wood box.

    What you have come to appreciate from EcoTech is quality materials so expect to see this when you crack open the box. From precision-crafted, German stainless steel tools that are durable and rust resistent to exclusively designed, kiln-fired coral frag plugs designed to hold your newly fragged gem, the entire kit looks top notch.*[​IMG]

    As the company says, it includes “All the tools you need. None that you don’t.” Inside you will find the Elements Coral Glue, tweezers, scissors, bone cutters, soft coral clamps and 18 custom coral frags.

    The box itself is reminiscent of the past before everything became plastic and the warm bamboo wood will not only add a bit of class to your fragging system. A nice touch on the box, is the company says it can also double as a cutting board. However, we’d find ourselves taking care of the box as long as we could before turning it into a fragging station because it looks to darn swanky.

    Expect these to run around $99 and if you are interested, the kit will be available mid-November at local fish store and online retailers, just in time for the holiday season.*Read the full press release below.

    Brand power baby! No serious fragger would buy this, but I bet you it will sell like hot cakes. As long as they include the instructional DVD. That's something I would like to see on all different type of corals.

    If the tools are stainless steel and rust resistant as they claim, then I reckon its worth the price. Stainless steel fragging tools are expensive. Yes you can still use a stanley blade to frag but this really does look the business.

    That's true. Medical grade instruments are stainless steal and those 4 instruments could cost a 1000 ZAR if bought locally. I'll have to edit my post above. All reefers must own this set.

    I can try and find out what a coral/bone cutter, tweezer, scissor and some small forceps will cost when you buy them from a medical equipment company.

    If you really really have to show off at the next reef meet / fragging event. Then this is the tool to have.

    and they will be sold out for months

    great set and worth it surgical and top quality, $99 is cheap if you earn $$$ considering they pay $40 a coral and $10 a polyp, not our vault the R->$ is screwed

    thats also the retail price for USA, they did say when they were here they adjust the pricing for local markets etc
