Well so far so good then.. Magnums were good for about the first 2 years they were in service... well I think we all know how that turned out (they take quite a bit of work and there not exactly quiet).
I hope for better news out of these though.
AP has no track record for mecanical parts that I know of, other then the exellent air pumps they put out (wich might be a good enough reason to go with a rena)
and Pen Plex's record is a little shotty (to put it mildly) IMO
in the past.. so I can only hope for the best for all you cascade owners out there.. good luck.. :P
