Products Used:
32 degrees coiled remote

Weaknesses: ASA pin does not back out too well.

Review: This remote is good. Looks nice and is well made.
As stated before, the knob that screws the pin down can be backed all the way off as it has no stop to it. Not a real big deal to me unless I forget to tighten it back down after a game and loose it.

The slide check works well. No problems yet after 6 games. It feels loose at first, but once pressure gets on it, it tightens up significantly. The check makes life easy in the staging area. (You can cut the air off from the gun and take it loose from the hose in case you are wondering. This will free you up to refil pods and hoppers, squeegee barrels ect.)

The main problem I have is with the pin in the ASA. When I go to turn the air off, I unscrew the knob, but the pin does not move up. So when I take my tank loose from the remote, I get the whole escaping gas thing. Not too crazy about that.

As far as materials used, the fittings are good. The quick connect can be...troublesome at times. But so far I have not missed a game because of it. The hose is heavy duty. The ASA looks a little cheap though.

Overall

Does what it says it will do +5
Looks good +2
Material used +2 (missed one point due to the ASA)
Quick connect issue -.5 (point five)
ASA pin issue -2
Conclusion: 7.5 out of 10.
This rounds up to an 8
If you are in the market for a remote, I would recommend considering this one. However, other options may be better
Rating:
8 out of 10
