    a pleasure to use the sman3

    My first set of digital manifold. I don't own a digi cool or testo but sure they are fine guages. GO DIGITAL! Get the set that best meet your needs. I use my fluke 52 for the wet and dry bulb temps as I don't have to calibrate as often. My temperature clamps are designated as well.
    Options are nice to have whether its an sman3,digi cool or testo know your tool and take good care of them!

    yep, good product.

    if you have problems- don't do like a lot of these clowns and get on here and complain before even trying to contact the vendor or Fieldpiece
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    I agree, there is a great deal of tools on the market. Some better than others but that is ok. Don't forget there are techncians at various knowledge/experience as well. Its a good thing tools and equipment can't talk back!

    SMAN 3 is great. I like the feel of it and the temp clamps. Also have Testo 557 and 570.

    Still waiting for SMAN 4.

    C'mon Russell when you gonna unveil it?

    I have to say that I'm enjoying my sman3 as well. Had some micron gauge issues at first, but I'm attributing them to user error as I haven't been able to duplicate the problem since.

    Good to see you again hvaclover.
    The sman3 is really nice, but watch the batteries and false readings. What do you think of the testo stuff?

    love 'em both.

    that's ehy I'm investing in the FP top-end SMAN 4.

    Already got the Testo 570 and the 557. Got a lot of accessories to buy for the 570. The amp clamp is gonna be the first one I buy and with it the third temp probe.
