Those are not the mini pipes that I have btw. Those are just standard pipes meant for a larger tank, probably something more 60p sized.

I don't think you'll be disappointed with the ADA set. The inflow is easier to clean than the Do!Aqua version (because it doesn't bulge out) and the outflow is nice because it moves the outflowing water towards the surface of the water.
I was just hoping there was something out there similar but costs less =)

I was hoping the same. There are plenty of traditional pipes made by different companies. I don't know why none of them carry a similar type of outflow.

I've never dropped the dough on ADA lily pipes. The Do aqua are pretty sturdy. The issue is usually the inflow. The outflow you can clean without removing the tubing. The inflow has to be removed and it usually breaks at the top bend when you put pressure on the tubing to remove it. I broke my Cal Aqua intake before.
