    Listed everything but the price. Looks mellow.

    Try one out

    Not sure what mellow looks like. Is this what you would see when you grab your gauges and you just took some acid?

    The hose park reminds me of those carved tikis with the big middle leg lol

    i don't own any digitals, but was using a coworkers one day, and found it kind of difficult when trying to set the cut out and cut in on cooler/ freezer lp controls on pump down , you know 5 and 15 or so, maybe it just takes practice...

    For awhile I didn't like having my digital manifolds because I liked to see the needle. Then I was training an apprentice and when I was watching him with his analog manifold, I was looking at it like, "uh... the saturation temperature is 42.. no, 47, no..."

    I prefer digital for the accuracy and readability. Plus, when you run into a system running 407C, 404A or R1234yf, you'll be thankful you have the PT chart.

    Depends which kind you use.
    A Digi-Cool with Dynamic Offset Bar Graph and Max/Min (with easy access clear button) makes setting pressure controls easy. Now with slow mo cameras built into phones I might be able to show it is actually easier and more accurate than using a analog gauge if you are short cycling a unit even though you are not supposed to do that.

    Guess what they have on planes when your digital screen goes out?….old fashioned analogs.

    I will stick with my analog gauges….have always worked well for me for 25 years, and Im willing to bet I can charge a unit just as well as anyone with their fancy overpriced manifold.
