The Topeak JoeBlow Ace DX was double the price of the next most expensive pump in the August 2 issue of Cycling Weekly magazine's track pump grouptest, the SKS Rennkompressor. Is it worth it?

Well, you get double the number of barrels to make pumping to various pressures as efficient as possible, it’s almost double the weight and it stands 10cm taller than most others at 74cm. Its gauge is a positively Big Ben-like 11cm in diameter, over twice the size of the Rennkompresssor's.
