Has any of you used this?

I found this in a Bass Pro shop and tested it at home with some water and is great!!! The only thing is that is too powerful and I am concerned with adding too much air to the wort during transfer. Just shake the pump end and it will create a suction strong enough to siphon. It only cost me $5.99!!! It has a 1/2" hose so it might be a problem for bottling I believe unless I can reduce the diameter using a connector or something.

Never used it, but it sounds like a good idea. I wouldn't bottle with a siphon anyhow. (rather use a bottling bucket). But from primary to 2ndry I think it would be fine.

I have been using one for a year now. It has a plastic tip instead of the metal and is food grade. Works great and its the last siphon ill have to buy.

I got one..but it's called the super siphon. It looks exactly the same and it works great. I use the autosiphon for fruit beers and melomels but use the super siphon for everything else. It really empties a carboy quickly. It's also pretty much indestructable.

looks like it uses the same premise as my gravel vacum for my fish tank. It works really good. (supersucker). but yeah it looks like it would stir up the yeast. and probably suck a lot of it up too.

I don't use one for beer, but have one for gas purposes. It works great.

I just bought a Super Siphon at my local Lowes. All copper construction with a glass bead trapped inside (read: brewery grade and easy to sanitize). I plan on shrinking the i.d. to slow down flow for transferring and bottling. This is not good-bye for my auto siphon, though, because I use my auto siphon sans end cap to suck up yeast slurry for recultivation. Gusso's comment on continuing to use an auto-siphon for fruit is also a good idea.
