Neither. Check SSM, tons of people are having problems with them leaking.


I'd go with Parkers, personally. But you have to find the right Parker valve, not all of them are the same. Some suck, some are unbeatable.


My SMC's have been great, but a couple months ago one of the rear lift valves started leaking into the bag. I know it's cause of the passed oil from my compressor, and the fact that I've never drained my tanks in over a year, but because of this I don't know if I can recommend them.

So what youre saying is that you know the valve failed because of your lack of preventative maintenance, and because of this you can't reccommend that valve to anyone else? :think:

word. codeman Gc are ok but your paying for the name i have run ASCO and BLITZ and have had no problems the only problem i have had with any of my customers valves was a kit ran over something that knocked a wire conector off one valve other than that 0 problems. if you only run 175PSI why do you need 450's? thats like buying a dually cuz your going to haul a dirt bike

I've heard problems with all valves but with GC and SMC's it's been user error but with Sirai and Blitz I've heard them blowing seals on systems running electric comps so passed oil wouldn't be the issue.
