Fluid Trainers

Are they all the same or should you just buy the Cyclops Fluid 2?

I haven't used any other fluid trainers but the Fluid 2 is sweet! To make it even better just add a powertap. I was using a Minoura Mag trainer before, there is no comparison.

I use the Fluid 2 and a PowerTap Pro. Great combo. I was using some sh*t Performance trainer last year, the difference is amazing. I also have a Kinetic riser ring that works nicely.
