    Never saw a factory made 2 hose set, and the 4 ports are huge and a PITA for everyday use.

    Perhaps you are thinking of the hose ends, how the high side (at least) has to be low loss or ball valve?

    Hmmm... Why does every HVAC/R tool manufacturer make them?

    Speaking of such, I just bought a series 41 Yellow Jacket manifold the other day...

    That would suck!

    And would be a huge waste of time and more refrigerant vented to the atmosphere due to constant removal of hoses.
