  9. Karl Taylor, No. He’s only looking to make money. When I was just starting I came across one of his videos in which he was using the Coker filter system. I thought it was cool so I asked on the channel, what the name of the filters he was using were called. He replied telling me to buy his book and that the information was in there.

    Sorry dude but I’m not buying your book just so I can find out the name of a filter.
