When is this going to be released?
I want 2!!
The pumps and controllers are ready for the public as I understand it. Unfortunately, Reef Octopus has had to postpone the release of the Blade due to some external factors which we are not at liberty to talk about. I wouldn't look for the Blade to hit the US market until maybe Wintertime. Total bummer!

It uses two Direct Drive ports.



I have to give you a cryptic answer and say partially, yes.
I’m holding out and waiting for it. I’ve got Nero 5’s now. The MP40’s seem to be to problematic. The Red Sea wave pump was a huge disappointment.

I’m beginning to think this whole thing was scrapped? They looked really promising, it’s too bad.

I know that, in general, international supply chains have significantly changed product launch timeframes during 2020.

@[email protected] @[email protected] - any update on the Blade?

Update... there is no update so this doesn’t bode well for the Blade. Unfortunately I can neither confirm nor deny if it’s alive or dead. :/
Not the answer that I was hoping for, but thanks for checking!

I went ahead and went with the Nero 5’s. Almost a year old and still working great, definitely was hoping to get these instead though. I really hope they work it out I love reef octopus products
