I've had an Aquabot Rapids 4wd for 8 years, no issues and still going strong. I'm starting to look at what's available today since this thing is going to die. Nothing looks great to me. Requirements:

1. My pool is 32', but I only need a 30-40' cord (I have half the current 60' one wrapped and zip tied)
2. Must have anti tangle thingy!
3. The Aquabot doesn't climb walls great, but I don't really care. I either want it work, or not even try.
4. Aquabot is supposed to be 18#, but it's heavy pulling out out (I'm 71), so lighter is better (or faster draining).

I've noticed anything with item #2 is expensive unless someone knows of one. Any good cordless ones out there yet?

I'm leaning towards a CX1, but hoping prices come down by the time my Aquabot dies. Hopeing for at least this season. Are bots cheaper in the winter?
