Next Generation of Water Moving Technology
The Maxspect Gyre is the world's first "gyre"- generating water moving device for aquariums. Compared to traditional powerheads and wavemakers that are based on propeller nozzle flow technology, the Maxspect Gyre is based on advanced crossflow technology which produces massive horizontal water movement leaving little to no deadspots in its wake.
New -Crossflow Technology
A) Virtually no dead spots
B) Evenly distributed flow rate throughout the entire aquarium
C) Water bounces back from the other side to create a full circulation, ie. generating "gyre flows"
Standard Propeller Nozzle Technology
A) Dead spots with relatively poor water movement
B) Very strong flow in the center, making coral placement very difficult
C) Very weak flow near the other end of the aquarium
Why gyre generator and not wavemaker?
Wavemakers excel in making waves, while waves are spectacular to watch in motion, they are in fact moving the majority of the water vertically up and down, with relatively low horizontal movement, especially near the bottom of the aquarium.
On the other hand, gyre generators excel in moving sheer flow of water from one side of the aquarium to the other. The sheer flow of water is so strong that i would bounce back from the opposite site to achieve full circulation within an aquarium, ie. generating "gyre flows".

I was using 2 Hydor power heads with a wave maker on my 75gal reef tank. But, i could never achieve the linear flow towards the bottom of the tank. Or positioning of the power heads could be tricky with each new coral that was added to the tank. Also, always had some dead spots too.
So when i bought the XF-130, I knew this was something special, just the packaging it comes in is classy, neat and comes with extra parts. The learning curve can be a little tough to get right, but if you take the time to read, mess around with the settings or go online, you will get this thing dialed in nicely. This is not a "just drop it in the water and walk away product", use power heads then if that's what your looking for. If you take the time to learn the product and what it can due for your tank, you will be pleasantly satisfied.
Pros - two power heads in one (one head in forward flow and the other in reverse flow at the same time, you can run it that way as an option for example), linear flow, quiet. options on settings, powerful ( i was able to get it to push water over the side of the tank, just buy playing with the settings.) that's just how powerful the product can be.
Cons - Price might be a deter some from buying it.
