    Do a lil research and you will find 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 threads about them stay away from mastercool, and revco. The yj's are almost the same as the digi cools, which were designed by the same guy. If you look up all the post you will see there are two top contenders, the digi cool 1250's, and the testo 550's. Depending on how much you wanna spend the testo 550's or the digi cool 1250's are your best bet. I know within the next few months, doug from dc has a new set of digitals commin out call the ak-900's, which are supposed to have the same key features as the 1250's, but at a cheaper price. I own the testo 550's use them on a day to day basis, and i love them. I compared the 1250's and the 550's and they are both quality instruments. You are lucky you posted this late at night, because if a lot of the guys would of saw another thread about digital gauges, you wouldnt of got a very warm welcome...........

    MFM 300,s

    I use the Cooper Atkins MFM 300, a digital P/T meter that gives you digital info. Best part about them is that they require no HOSE's....

    Wha'd you need gauges for? I just listen to them and feel the suction line. Burrrrrrrrrp. Beer Can Cold.


    Some of us are Partial to one Brand. I'll tell you, once you change you won't go back. I still carry a set of analog in the truck, good place to hang spare hoses.

    Have a DC 1600 and a Testo 550

    Prefer the Testo at the moment

    Both had quick temp sensor failures, I cant win with those
