    Dunno, i only saw the piccie, i have tried to find it, but putting "x-wave" into google search takes you down a road you might not want to travel:whistling:

    lol, well it looks pretty good, performance and price wise it may prove to be a fairly decent Tunze competitor, according to the pic it looks like it may have a few variable flow/controller options - looks good so far :)

    What do you mean "Tunze competitor"? it's a blatant copy??? so it's bound to be a good competitor, i would imagine the prices will be around the same too.

    I did check the Deltec website (sponsor on UR) but no mention as yet

    Variable flow from 5,000 -13,000 lts per hour - pretty cool

    Well if it's the same price as Tunze then I'm not interested.

    The plastic on the outside is a blatant copy, but it's what's on the inside that counts, anybody can copy the looks, but the performance and functions is what we're all after.

    Must be made under license surely, it's exactly the same. Tunze would have patented everything on that pump including the casing. And then used the Seio swivel mount..

    If you can't beat them, join them :)

    If the mounting options are better than Tunze (not difficult to beat) then this one gets my money for sure.

    IIRC, yes it can and the tunze pumps can be plugged into the x wave controller.
    Wonder whether D&D is going to brand their seaswirl equivalent as well......

    Hey guys Tunze have moved on to the Stream 2 so what ever copy it is now old tech, lets see what happens
    For those of you that are interested go to the uploads section and compare a 6055 with stream 2
