    ihave both a digital and a water tube. i find myself using the water tube one more. but it also depends on what you work on mostly.

    Many of our guys use the Testo without fail, I have the old school Dwyer.
    Both are very good, the Testo is way more compact and will fit in our toolbag better.

    OP for your price I would look at Dwyer. I think they may be a little more the 200 but not my much if they are.
    Gotta have the right tool for the job!

    get the testo 510, very compact and very accurate, had mine for a couple years, not a single issue, u can fit it in a small bag with hoses, gas fitting, tee's, static pressure tips, and slip it into the veto bag no problem, i have everything in 8"x5" husky zip bag from home depot, i never have to go to the truck to check anything, like u would have to do with just about any other manometer.

    I'm old school and like the Dwyer U-tube oil filled. I also use a Dwyer inclined (oil filled) for lower reading stuff.

    u will not be disapointed, probably the best tool i ever bought, it has many more features than the uei. and its a much higher quality product.
