Remora Knockoff? - Take a look at this thing!

Can't find info on it anywhere. It comes with a PH (looks like a maxijet but.... could it be a maxijet?!?! doubt it.)

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=46313

Interesting!

Looks VERY MUCH like a Remora! Funny coincidence? (NOT!!)

Except that I betcha it does not use air injection....... it looks as though the PH just shoots into the bottom so it bubbles up... I am curious curious curious.

WHAT do you guys think?!?!?

I sent the guy an email and am awaiting an answer.

Thanks, Erik

Yeah, that looks like a Bakpak, not a Remora. If I'm not mistaken I've seen that exact knockoff in a LFS here in Dallas. I didn't see what pump came with it though. That's definitely NOT the pump that comes with a Bakpak, FWIW. Bakpaks use Rios.

I saw those at the HH backer trade show. They are cheap china imports that are exact copies of the Bak Pak and the pump is an exact replica of the Maxi jet. It is to bad CPR did not put a patent on there design like aqua c did.

You can get global patents or country patents, I think.
