Needle wheels are expensive, this might be a nock off imitation that may not be of good quality and last very long, how much are they sellign for?

You can get one for $40-45 (25-30 + 15 s&h)

i've had a few needle wheel skimers they have for the most part been the best of all skimmers used . they tened to be very simple to operate. some of the cheeper ones have wear problem with the wheel and the impeler they get louder as they wear out. you may have to replase the wheel or even the pump in less than a year. but for $40 you cant loose much. i m looking at their "520" to try out $70 im hoping the housing is worth that. dont expect to much though.

That JEBO 520 is a great skimmer for the price. Throw in a decent needle wheel pump like an Ocean Runner and you're set.
