    I got a Bacharach Informant 2. Best leak detector I have ever owned.
    Not as lean, not as mean, but I'm still a hardcore, ass-kicking, hard charging Marine! Oohrah!

    What color is it? My white one just detects when I bump the tip but never detects leaks. What it really excels in is killing batteries. Best detectors I have found are H10 and tifzx.

    I have a tf zx also and I think it is good. The dtek select is a good unit also.

    I've used the dteck select, the yellow jacket, and H-10pm... H-10pm hands down... It has a learning curve but once you get it, you'll wonder why you ever wasted your money on any other leak detector!

    Bacharach h10g, will detect virtually any refrigerant, got to play with one courtesy of a supermarket technician but it costs so much!

    Used the zx-1 and it worked great. Sensor went out more than id like too. Sold that and bought a tif xl1a not a good idea. It wont detect leaks as good as the old zx1.

    I'm looking to go back to the zx1 or im giving the Bacharach Informant 2 a try.
