Default chillers

i just received a blichmann hop rocket for my birthday!! now i am going to buy a chiller other than my immersion chiller.

I have a march 809 pump so i am thinking a plate chiller is the way to go. So my questions are....is the blichmann therminator worth the money?

Has anyone bought a different plate chiller that works just as good as the therminator?

I was going to buy the chillhog 4000 from rebel brewer but they are out of stock.

I also want to buy one that I can put a thermometer attachment on the end to see the temp of the wort coming out.

I make 10 gallon batches. Thanks for any advice on this!!!

Very cool...do you use any attachments on the end to give you wort temperature?

Man didn't see that. I am going there today and I will ask them about it as I've been looking to replace Shirron plate chiller.
