    Any opinions on Accutools TruBlu evac kits?

    They are pricey so I'm not sure how many of you maniacs have bought them. Anyone?

    I'm considering them if they are an upgrade over Appion Megaflow hoses.

    I bought one and love it, but then again I’m coming from a pair of 3/8th. Not sure if the slight increase from your megaflow would justify the cost. I believe there is a video doing a comparison of the trublu and appions

    They go much deeper much faster than any other hoses. Just comparing the hose will show a significant difference. The TruBlu hoses have 1-3 microns of loss when the competitors often over 100.

    I bought two of the "Starter" kits a couple of months ago. Now, I see why they are called starter kits. You will want more.

    I had been having problems pulling a timely vacuum with my other equipment. It was my VCRT's or hoses. I bought a second set of VCRT's of the same brand and still had problems.

    The first time I used the TruBlu set, the vacuum dropped below 500 microns in under a minute on a 4 ton line set and coil, and later blanked off nicely.

    Having an issue with one of the TruBlu VCRT's. It is self-sealing in vacuum, but when I release the charge I will start to get some leakage while I am putting the valve cores back in with the tool.
    It's an upside down world we live in.
