J&J 14" Ceramic, 20 Oz. Co2 tank w/ 32*on/off, polished bolt, Venturi removed, NW short dropforward & Spyder ASA adapter.
Large Knob, nice finish, good flow
I just installed one of these valves on my 20 Ox tank and so far have had no problems. The on off knob is nice and large and it's only one turn to turn the tank off or on. The valve is highly polished and appears to be of a stronger brass alloy than conventional valves. Although I have only used it for one game it held up to my marker's regular beatings at the local parks. Installing the valve was a sinch, air out the tank, wait for it to reach room tempature (hot water helps) break the existing loctite (mine had red loctite) screw off, clean the threads, make sure no debris are in the bottle tighten snugly and fill. Not much too it.
There is not much to say about this product. It does it's job. You can turn it off if you are waiting a long time in between games and you can leave it in your ASA. The one thing the could have made stronger (Besides the top) is the glue on the sticker. All in all, i love this product!
This is great. The only bad thing is i dropped it in the grass and it left a little dent in the side. It made it harder to fill after that. Other wise, get it!
Large Knob with marked +/- position
Great material quality
Do not have thread for (anti)siphon tube (1/8 NPT inside)
I have promiset to my friend to equip his 10oz tank with this valve with antisiphon tube. It was not without problems at last, because we have found that this valve has not 1/8 NPT thread inside... but I was able make the tap self, so it vas O.K.
The lack of the thread for siphon/antisiphon tube inside looks be the only disadvantage. Otherwise this valve look be very good - it does it's job, is evidently manufactured from good materials (I have find that through tap), has great finish, nice large knob, with marked on off position (with is not just common, however) easy for manipulation... which can be in the way on other side on some markers (Sterlings in backbottle setup for example).
Has better safety for depressurize the tank in case unintentional unscrewing the valve from full tank (two longitudinal channels in thread instead of small hole whith can be pluged by Loclite by some blockhead in shop).
Nice, becoming on/off valve. If you do not have need of siphon/antisiphon tube, or if you are able tap it inside self, it will be most likely good choice for you.

works as it says it should, can turn air on and off when taking it off your gun, saves on orings. would be good if they had a choice of colors. It only costs a few dollars more than a regular valve for the tank so price should not be an issue. Just used it yesterday and it worked as it should. I would probab;y but it again if I needed another valve for another tank.
works as it should need more colors though which is why it only gets an 8

This is a wonderful valve. I have used my first one for over a year. Never had any problems with it at all. It remains as beautiful as the day I installed it on my 20oz'er. In February I bought a new one and installed it onto my baby Stubby. This one had a failure. The knob unscrewed itself from the valve stem. The internal spring shot off (never to be recovered) right before game start. The valve was off. I was able to reinstall the knob (minus the internal spring) and get the valve on. Relief! Not a problem, tho. They agreed to replace the valve at no cost.
even with the minor recent set back, I love the 32 Degrees On/Off Valve very much. The price is great and the looks are tremendous! Thank You, 32 Degrees!
