Protein Skimmer Recommendations

I've been out of the hobby about 5 years or so, recently just purchased a Waterbox 70.3 and was just curious what skimmer everyones running these days? I was looking at Redsea's Rsk 300, any inputs? Thanks in advance.

Total system volume is 70 gallons. I believe the display is 54 gallons.

I appreciate everyones response, and yes its roughly about 70 gallons. The price point of the Bubble Magus is pretty intriguing especially for the elite.
