Vacuum sealer for fish

I've been through several amazon vacuum sealers now and I'm on the cusp of buying a commercial grade weston sealer. I was doing a bunch of research and came across an article on vacuum sealers which addressed all of the problems I have been having. The article recommended this fish and game sealer. The problem I had with previous sealers was always the moisture killing the sealer and it appears they fixed that with this one. I've also been told to freeze my fish prior to vacuum sealing but quite frankly I don't really want to mess with freezing and then sealing I just want to do it once and be done.

Has anyone here used one of these? Are there other sealers that are under $100 that you'd recommend given that the only thing I seal is fish and I don't want to freeze them prior to sealing?

One trick that I learned with my old vacuum sealer is to put a strip of paper towel just inside where the seal is going to be. You can watch it get wet and before the side closest to the sealer is wet hit the seal button. You just want to make sure that the paper towel runs the whole width of the bag. I usually just folded it over and over till it was about 1" wide. That worked pretty well (that was a Foodsaver model from Costco).
