- (November 18, 2006) When I first saw the case a few years back and purchased it from Thompson Cigars they were the only ones having that case. I was very impressed with the size which was new and fits inside your jacket and even shirt pocket, and the overall quality. All you need to do is sprinkle some water on the Spanish Cedar inside before you put your Cigars and your Cigars would stay fresh for the whole day. Both sides are crush proof so even if you accidentally sit over the Cigars are safe. Overall a great value for money and a great product
- (March 29, 2007) I have tried few cigars ,one day I saw someone having flor de oliva torpedo and i tried and fall in love with its scent and aroma. It was excellent and i will purchase it again.

- (09/16/2013) Bought this skimmer for my Nuvo 38 based on reviews. This skimmer has a nice design but creates tons of microbubbles and is so hard to dial in and keep running right. Pretty much useless to me. Maybe I got a bad unit. Would not purchase again.
- (08/30/2013) If you are looking for a skimmer for a nano-tank, stop reading and buy this now! I usually don't write product reviews, but I'm so happy with this that I must let others know. I've used the Tunze 9002 for 2 years, and it was previously the best you could get, but suffered from a few issues: 1. The air elbow intake would always clog, leading to decreasing performance over time. 2. It was loud. I have my tank in a bedroom and I can always hear the bubbling. Other than that, it worked decently. I also tried the Hydor Slim Skim Nano, which made nice bubbles, but was also somewhat loud and made my whole table shake with its vibrating pump. PROS: 1. This skimmer is almost dead silent (and I have very high standards for noise). 2. In addition, it creates vastly superior bubbles to the Tunze or the Hydor due to its needle-wheel impeller. Both of the others just feed air into a traditional impeller. 3. In addition, there are almost no issues with micro-bubbles once broken in. 4. Small, more of a square footprint than a long box as the Tunze was. Still bigger than the Hydor though. Cons: 1. Skimmer adjustment can be finicky. I have it running in a constant level sump, but even so, barely a 1/4mm turn in either direction can create too high / too low bubbling. 2. No way to clean inside skimmer body. I feel this is a huge oversight by Cad Lights, and I hope they fix it in future versions. both ends of the skimmer body are sealed with glue, so you must use a wire brush to clean inside. This is the only reason I'm knocking off 0.5 stars. In summary, you will not regret this purchase if you are looking for a quiet, robust nano-skimmer!
- (08/22/2013) Replaced a 9002, and after 36 hours, built up a foamhead I've never seen with the Tunze, and had a nice inch of brown tea still during the break in period. Very nice as well is how silent. Very quiet operation. It is a bit tricky to dial but once you understand it is unleashed and Foams like an animal. Worth the $100...
