Why ? The Amflo Model# 100 is a hundred times better.

I have an accu-gage 100 psi dial gauge with a hose a rubber bumper. I've had it for maybe 15 years and keep it in my trunk with a foot pump. It works well but wasn't holding the pressure reading in the last month, it was easy to take apart and clean, and it works great again. If it ever breaks I will buy another one.

I have an Accu-Gage thats lasted forever. I think I got it from sears. I dont know the model but it looks like the S60X. It's not a mini.

Milton S-921 passenger car tire gauge. Mine is spot on with my Astro 3018 digital tire inflator and Accutire MS-4021B.

I started liking the digital gauges myself and have an Accutire one in both my vehicles. Bad thing is these have almost doubled in price since I bought my last one a couple years ago. But I have tested these against my Longacre 52003 and it matches it to the half pound.

I have a $300 Intercomp digital gauge, but for daily use this is my go to tire pressure gauge. No other style gauge is easier to use, or work better for several reasons.

I have this one https://www.accutiregauge.com/programmab...ge-with-light/. Best gauge I have had yet. And I have had lots of different gauges.
