asm or octopus skimmer?

Recently decided to upgrade to a 150 gal and use my 90 as a sump. Now i am on the market for a skimmer and found a local ASM G4x W sedra 9000. I was hoping for a new skimmer and was looking at the Octopus skimmers. Is this the same company as ASM was. Which is a better skimmer? anyone have any suggestions on which one they would go with? the price is about the same.

They are the same company now. I have an ASM G5+ Recirculating with a sedra 9000 and am very pleased with the performance. I guess it's just your choice.
