It's crazy how great that Jaco Flowpro gauge is - it's like I said, it almost makes checking air pressure fun!

I use it exclusively now, it has replaced 3 other "sort of good" unitized gauge/ trigger air nozzles.

I use a digital that looks very similar to this, I will walk across the yard to get it rather than use the 2 or 3 others I have. Checking tires is a breeze

Just FYI, anyone buying JACO stuff should go to their website -- jacosuperiorproducts.com -- to check for special prices and offers.

For instance, I needed a second gauge, and the price on their site is about the same as Scamazon, but no sales tax (saved a couple of bux there) PLUS free shipping and a 10% discount by using their "winter10" code.

For the price, there's no point in buying "looks like JACO" . . .I'll stay with the real thing.

i bought one of those the same day that scott posted here about it.

darn thing just makes airing tire a game, really is find to squeeze the trigger, wait a bit and inspect the tire pressure.

our golf car has a tire that looses air over about 4 weeks time, I would gonna get it fixed, but why bother?
poof poof and the Jayco gauge puts it back to 30 psi again :mrgreen:

Like Azgl1800, I bought one a few days after Scott posted his review. It's the best gauge I've owned by far. I did have to replace the batteries late last year, I have a lot of tires to keep properly inflated.


DT, Enjoy the ride.
