Gravel cleaners

Can anyone recommend a good gizmo to clean the aquarium gravel? My tank is deep - 30 inches - so the handles or tubes will have to be long. Anyone have experience with some of the items advertised on the market today? Which one gives the best results? (Yes, I know modern gravel is called "substrate" to make it sound fancier, but the fact remains that it is just basically gravel).

Get a python with the extension tube. I believe they make vacuums that are 48" long.
