    Great post! Thanks for putting it all together.

    I've got #s 3-8, although for #8, I have the 22mm SnP, which I love. I can use the GP ProRing with it, but I think it looks funny. Their ProRing is definitely better with the 23mm SnP.

    edited to add: I second darkgear's comment - I have been using my KirFanis Privadero tank for over a week now (neglecting my others), and it is gorgeous. It has an integrated beauty ring, so it doesn't exactly fit here, but it is definitely worthy of mention.

    For anyone finding a Hippo on the classifieds (V1 version) it was the original beauty ring (aside from some one-off custom pieces). As an airflow controller, it works great, but has a tendency to leave scratches on the ProVari's bevel and does not offer a flush fit like the improved V2 Hippo. Usually mod accessories don't drop in price much, but I wouldn't recommend spending more than $20 for a V1 Hippo, unless you are really desperate for an airflow controller.

    Before the V2 came out, you could get your money back out of the V1 Hippo and sell it for $35-40 easy. Times change.

    Great thread, OP!

    Are you sure it's not just a beauty ring with an integrated tank? That fits just fine, if you ask me.

    Well said√ The Hippo v1 better be avoided... the v2 is much nicer and functional.

    They make the Provari look nicer when you have a tank with a larger diameter than the top taper. The top taper is ~19mm, so if you have 19mm tanks they look good without the ring. The body of the Provari is ~22mm, so for a seamless look the ring covers the taper & makes the body flow right into the sides of a larger, 22mm tank. The rings are for nothing more than cosmetics.

    Edit: Others haven't had the same problem, but my first order with Loki will likely be my last. I just got my rings today & they look good, but the shipping time was horrible at best. There had to have been a fluke somewhere along the line since Lion ordered his the same time I did & got his days ago... even though he lives thousands of miles further away from them than I do. 2 day shipping turned into 2 week shipping. Not convinced this was all the fault of the idiots at USPS, but perhaps.
