Default Vacuum Sealers

I have a question about Vacuum Sealers. Last night I fried another FoodSaver. I go through one about every 2 years. The main reason is I do a lot of fish. This year has been an epic tuna season and weíre still catching Yellowfin, Bluefin, Albacore, Yellowtail and Dorado. Seriously, my house is a wreck, the screen door fell off 2 weeks ago, my lawn is badly overgrown, my dog barks at me when I come home (sheís forgotten who I am) but Iíve got a freezer full of tuna! So now itís time to start smoking and processing all this fish. Before I go out and buy another FoodSaver, I want to consider some options.

Do any of you have any experience with the VacMaster chamber style vacuum sealer? Iíve been looking at the SVP-15 and the new VP-215. I know they cost more but the bags are like 4 cents apiece instead of the 30 cent cost of a FoodSaver bag. Iím thinking it will last me a lot longer. Any thoughts or even a recommendation on another manufacturer or model would be appreciated.
