Anyone know where to buy ginger filters for Whisper HOBs?

I saw some "Ginger" brand disposable filter pads with carbon inside at an LFS, they are an alternative to the "assemble it yourself" bio-bags for the whisper hob power filters: The difference is when you're done with the ginger, you just throw the whole thing away, the "frame" portion of the filter is disposable too, unlike a bio-bag setup which employs that reusable black plastic frame.

AAAaaanyway... they had a huge box of them and I bet they got them cheap as HECK but of course their markup is insane.. so I'm trying to find out where I can buy them in bulk. I use several Whisper 30-60's (yes I have mags and aquaclears and stuff too) but the whisper is so super easy to replace the media I really like 'em.

If anyone knows where I can get a case of these "Ginger" brand pads give me a shout would ya. 8) TIA!

aww, nobody?

Maybe I could slap some together with some duct tape, crunched up charcoal briquettes and cotton balls.

Hey Snap - maybe you can email them for a distributor. They don't seem to have a website or anything...

I am totally bored at work today. Any other research anyone?

Yay, I am emailing them right now!

I could not find that email address anywhere I looked, thank you!

If it's the right one I will be dishing out some kudos and also giving out info on pricing I find for those carts for anyone interested.

Bernie I checked you link but did not see the Whisper 30-40-60 size?

Thanks all - will be getting back 2U
