does any one have experience with Reef Octopus Extreme XS 160 Protein Skimmer, is it powerful enough for a full blown 120 gallon reef.

Yes it will be enough... I basically had the 200 version but make sure it has the NEWER pump, the sicce psk1000 and not the psk2500... the psk2500 is a headache of a pump. If you can afford it, the Super Reef Octopus skimmers with the bubble blaster pumps are definitely worth the extra cost (much better pump).
