I have to say... Quality is superb and we got samples for all their tweezers/scissors...very nice. We also got in CO2 drop checkers and Pipe brushes. Plus some samples of prototypes they are working on for other stuff. All of it looks great.

I am giving Aqua Design Innovations a shot at them, to carry online in their new online store they are launching. So keep and eye there. I will update when they go live online and give you the website address.

Actually.... Aquaful in Natick, MA is going to be ordering them as well. I don't know how far away from Boston that is... 15 miles about?

They can get anything from us. But I believe he mostly gets Mr. Aqua, UP Aqua, Hydra, and now VIV. There is a recent thread in the Mass section that he responds in. His name is Anthony. I believe his member name on PT is "Aquaful"

Just got my hands on a bunch of various pipes and tools in China. The construction feels very solid and the craftsmanship is quite good. The spin pipe in particular is pretty cool....first time seeing such a thing in person. Their packaging could probably use some work though. Looks great on retail shelves, but gets a bit roughed up in shipping
