    Never heard of them. Might wanto purchase a known quality set first. If you dont see a thread on this site about them, my guess would be that build quality is less than stellar. If you already own a good set, heh buy'em and let us know how bad they suck. JK

    The manifold block on them looks exactly like the Testo 550.

    Well I though they might ditch the MC and do something with JB but I don't think JB would go with something that looked as cheap as that. I've been waiting but maybe JB is out until guys stop buying their gauge sets just for the manifold and hoses and tossing the analogs

    Well, either way this additional offering to the digital market just proves analogs are going the way of the dinosaur

    In a few years there only be a few digital mfg left as the market becomes more saturated and the mfg who lose or can't gain market share go bye-bye.

    Looks like there is a port on the left side of the manifold. I assume it is for vacuum.
