    If it lasts long enough to buy a seesnake with the profits then it's fine, if not then you will have wished you saved the cash and got the tank of cameras.

        I could not find any thing on a search using the terms clear pipe for a brand, did find a few units for not much more money fitting the specifications you stated, http://www.probuilttools.com/
        some claiming to be usa made http://www.sewerequipmentcompanyofne...r-camera-/c5yx
        unless I knew more about who made it, I would be careful.

        you do have some camera experience and know some thing about them and what to look for as far a cable stiffness and flex and so on,

          yes I do I've owned a couple of different brands with different types of push rods I know what to look for is far is gout jizz scratches kinks in the cable but I've never heard of this brand and I'm flat out just going to pass on it its not worth it to me to have 2500 invested in something I know nothing about

            BEWARE, BEWARE, BEWARE, those 2 companies are the new names for the company we knew as South Coast Equipment. A company that ripped off a lot of people in the past, before Ebay shuut them down. I was a lucky one that got my money back, but not after they bounced a check to me after they strung me along for over 3 months. Others including forum members were not so lucky. There was a very long post about this company a couple years back, do a search on it and stay far, far away.

                A simple search on south coast equipment turned this up.

                pretty much identical to what they did to others on the forum and ebay.

                  thank you Rick, all I was pointing out was the cost savings for used set up was minimal for what is offered out there, just like most things check out any unknown company, I had posted for information only not a recommendation.

                    Bhd, I know you meant well. Your research is always amazing finding answers.

                    I was just pointing out my first hand accounts and bringing up some past forum issues with company.

                    bottom line is, these companies are all spin offs of the original south coast eqipment that ripped me and others off. Changing a company name, doesn't change the way they conduct business.

                    Rick.
