I've never seen or touched one. I've heard of plastic and/or composite ammos so I'd be curious to play with some just for the gadget factor. Are they more expensive?

Upon a closer look they are about 2" narrower. Might be hard to keep your balance if you're crownin' a big turtle head. How much were ones on ebay?

Will the ECO safe tank fit inside them?

$35 including shipping on ebay... I see now too, they are not as big as the 20mm cans.

I second the eco safe tank explosion do to angry turds blocking the hose. Especially if you may have lost an appropriate fitting and have to hold a hose on. Long story short- bought a new fitting the next day.

I own an Eco-Safe system in a typical Rocket Box. First time I emptied it I suffered what I call the 'bulging blue snake' issue. The hose started to plug up and swell and the next thing I new there was brown goodness everywhere!
Pretty sure baby wipes were the main culprit, and we've since made it clear that those are no longer allowed on our trips.
That being said, have any of you redone the cheap flimsy hose provided with a PVC pipe system for emptying? (i.e. super hard plastic pipe that won't explode under pressure)

Thanks in advance for any pics/plans.
