I am pretty sure that they are Airflow snorkels made in Dromana, Vic.
They are generally quite a bit cheaper, although well made & efficient, but not quite as pretty as the others.
As the name indicates, they have done quite a lot of testing on air flow & supply a lot to the trucking industry. I have spoken to him at length & he seems very knowledgable.

If it is the airflow unit, than that is what I installed on my 80 series recently.
I have a safari on my 60, but decided to give the airflow a go, due to cost.
I can see where the Safari is a finished of a little better, but I wouldn't say is worth near double the price. In short i'm perfectly happy with the Airflow unit.
There was a thread on cheaper snorkles a few weeks ago which had differing opinions.
I guess safari has been tried and tested, where as the recent makes still need to prove themselves, but I'm happy to give 'em a go.

I had had Safari on 4WD's before & a very good unit but I afree with Troy S. The Airflow is tried & tested unit and represents good value for the money. Nissan fit a Nissan branded snorkel on their vehicles....I wonder who makes them? I had a vibration & resonating noise from a Safari which was fitted to my NP diesel Pajero when I bought the new NT auto Diesel Pajero I was told by Safari that they were experiencing the same problems with my vehicle & snorkel. There is no such problem with the Pajero manual vehicle. I fitted a Airflow (on the advice from people at ARB & Safari) that was late 2009 & to this day Safari are still battling the problems with their snorkel & the auto Pajero. I have no complaints with the Airflow.

Nissan Snorkels are made by AIRTEC.

Thank's for the info fellers I'd say I'll get the Air flow now for sure it looks like the intake head is designed like TJM's with the slots to run the water away that's what else I was looking at I'll give them a call now Thank's for the help

Safari heads have slots to run the water away AND have a drain down the bottom as well.

You can also swivel the head to minimise dust in a convoy.
