The gauge boasts a marker bevel and is very clear and easy to read and, in keeping with the overall impression of high quality, the pump action is smooth and solid.
Fiddly valve connector
Quite a classy contender, with a durable powder-coated finish topped off with a very comfortable wooden handle.
Ultra-stable in use and while clearly well engineered and built to last, it’s let down a little by a connector that is awkward to get on and off.
