trust me you will be more then impressed with it, especially once you find the sweet spot with the nozzle and the output

Ny State New Model?

I have been looking at them as well since getting the scoop on them from Noob, but see that Marine Depot lists them as discontinued? Are they discontinuing the model or is it just MD is no longer carrying them? Since they are back-ordered at a lot of sites, wondering if maybe there is a new model about to be launched? Also curious where you ended up ordering from.
