Always been meaning to get one but never really bothered. Maybe this is the snapper season that I eventually do get around to it?

Worth spending a couple hundred bucks or do the $70 Ebay ones do the job?
Aldi had some a while back
Yeah I remember someone posted, never had a chance to grab one.

Anyone get one if so, report on the quality?

I've been prepping the last few weeks now, upgrading gear and all sorts. Cannot wait to begin the hunt for Big Red.

The Aldi Vac sealer is a good one, I've had mine for near 4 years, use it for all sorts of things.
There pricing on bags is pretty good too, if ya get one, buy as many bags as you can afford, different sizes.

Snapper season for me !
Will be thinking about being on the water for the start of the next snapper season !!!!!!
