I also like the YJ's with the ball valve built in at the end. Its better than anything else I've used over time.
I have these. I haven't tried them yet, but they look promising. Has anyone else used them? Are they any good?
those look great!!
for guys working on small krapp there might be a problem getting them to fit sometimes

Does anyone know if the Yellow Jacket 25980 9" charging hoses with ball valves are rebuild-able? I have a set and the red hose has a leak at the valve stem. I have searched high and low and cannot find any information or parts to rebuild. Hate to just toss them and drop another $90 on a new set if it is possible to take apart and rebuild.
UPDATE: Just got off the phone with Yellow Jacket and according to their tech, the YJ 25980 9" hoses with ball valves are not rebuild-able and there are no parts to rebuild. Just thought i'd post this in case someone else out there has a set of these and is wondering if it is possible to rebuild them.
Ball valves are the way to go. after closing them off, press the fitting hard against the access port, so you make a good seal, then undo the nut to the last thread and pull the fitting off the access port quickly. using this method i believe i lose less then if i use a low-loss (this is much easiear to demonstrate then it is to explain)
Dont get the adapters that screw into the hoses. they may work, but i guarantee that at some point you will go to use them, they will have loosened up, you will not notice, and you will dump an entire systems charge while trying to figure out what is happening.
If you do use Low-loss fittings, dont use them on 410a... from everything i heard they dont stand up to the pressures
NRP low loss are only ones I know of rated for 410a pressures.
