    yup, it was me, but it wasn't the OP that changed the topic

    i just try to respect peoples threads if i can. sometimes after the OP has gotten his answer and the thread side tracks, i will continue instead of making a useless thread about shop talk

    I'm looking for advice...been reading the threads regarding manifolds. I can totally relate to the problems with Digi-Cool units. What are the three (3) primary specifications to evaluate when looking to purchase. I am looking to purchase 8-10 new manifolds for my crews and have not had tremendous success with anything recently.

    My crews, like most, work outdoors 98% of the time, are tough on equipment (accidental drops, wet, stored in truck storage boxes, hang in the van, etc)...nothing out of the ordinary.

    What specs should I pay most attention to and what units do you suggest and why?

    Idk if you are lookin for difital or analog, but imo its personal preference. I like a good set of two port gauges, i have a set of JB and love them. As for 4ports, i would buy the imperials, they are made well, i plan on purchasing a set in the next couple weeks. Yellow jacket is not bad either, the four port Brute 2 is heavy, but the titan is nice. I aslo have a set of NRP two ports. Ive used a lot of diff company gauges, it just all depends on the feel. Imo i could not bring myself to spend almost a grand on a set of gauges, but they are nice to have.

    Frankly...looking at digitals (the guys find them easier to read) as well as analog units.

    Digital units seem to be a bit fragile for most environs...and I find most all anaologs are created equal unless someone can tell me differently.

    The Digi-Cool is about the best all round and they and get soaking and take a beating. I drop mine on the Concert from about 3 ft and not a scratch.

    I never tried the Matercool but have'nt heard much good about them

    there aren't any problems with the digi-cool gauges

    well, price if that's a problem. i paid for mine and am getting ready to pay again because they're that great.

    This is my latest rig.
    1600 with a blue boot mounted on an Imperial 600 series manifold.

    We've been doing so much,for so long,with so little, that now we can do almost anything, with nothing at all.
