    I don't see the intake ports on the tip when blowing into the pipe. That was what caught my attention first.

    Regarding the two tips- if you ran the TT over the tiny tip, it seems like it is defeating the purpose........kinda like what happens when I run the TT over the turbo tip on my 802. I do get more air and at a pretty decent speed too, but if the TT was designed specifically for my BP, then I could just run it over the end of the straight tube and get even more cfm performance. Sp far, the little I got to test the TT on my 802, it looks quite promising for next season.

    There was s guy a few years ago that developed a real prototype of a Dual Tube Blower. One tube for left and right hands. Even had a video.

    Will search.

    This guy. Said it would be released in 2009. Never was.

    Good idea to combat blow back in high winds.

    I just spoke to a dealer in my area regarding buying the new BL9000. The blower will not be available until March. They said they would sell me one a full retail which is $599.99 + $30 shipping + tax. They are charging me to have it shipped to their store. " I said ...No Thanks! "
