Yea I saw them to, almost bought them because kens didn't have any. Luckily found a box I had forgot about. I always wondered how they were the only company making them. Makes sense now, you think they would have kept that going

I think patent law only works for 10 yrs (?) in this case, so now since that is up, companies can do "generic"- just like pills.

Basically Kordon's are just vegetable bags you'd find at the food market, but thicker.

I'm working on my fish room 7Am wanna help?

Where did you get them?  Ebay?  I was looking at seeing if I could get some at wholesale prices and resell them.  I emailed Kordon but they only distribute though aqpkg.com and kensfish.

So I got my Ultimate breather bags in yesterday.  They are a little larger than Kordons, and printed in green ink. 

 

It's true the bags do not have side seams, and the bottom looks heat sealed.  Very well, I may add.

 

The feel of them is different as well.  The Kordons feel rubbery and have some stretch to them when tying a knot.  These feel more like poly.  No rubber feel, no stretch.  So *could* be a different manufacture altogether.  Still is supposed to be O2 in and CO2 out, though.  People who like poly better would definitely like the feel of these bags.

 

I'm doing a trade with Shrimpo this week and testing the bag, so we'll see how they hold up for the aquatics.

Are you able to tie a knot in them as easily as the Kordons or are you going to have to secure them differently?
