Does this look right? EK-Spin

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Just got a package from EK. I've looked at a lot of videos and pictures of the EK spin but I don't remember seeing this cut out on the res.

Does the curvy cutout expose anything other than the spinner?

Looks like a revision by EK, I had the same res but it didnt have the cutout or the min/max guidelines. It looks like they did that to improve the outlet flow back into the res, its not going to hinder performance of your loop tho, use it and enjoy

mine has something similar, but it still looks a bit different. Mine also does not have that min max level, maybe its just a new front plate.

ps, does your's have grooves on the side so it can slot into cases without modding?

No it doesn't unfortunately. That would have really been nice.

I tested it underwater and its not as visible as i first thought so I'm not too worried about it. Thanks for the feed back though!

I've got that too. It's no big deal.

@OP
Where did you purchase that res from?
post #8 of 9
at OP, that cutout is actually the latest revision of this res. It has a shield around the bottom outlets to prevent bubbles caused by the waterfall effect to get recycled into the loop. Its a good thing, be happy.
