Default why pay too much for ss hardware?

if your paying more than 17 bucks for a 1/2 inch ss ball valve or more than a couple bucks for a ss full coupling, then your getting ripped off my friends. Stop buying from these overpriced suppliers in these hard times and go where i go...go where the process facilites go...go to gfi stainless...there in modesto ca..they also have a phone number and a website....at least check them out....they got the goods man...they dont have false bottems and such...but they have all kinds of other ss fluid fittings....and if the products small....i can always weld it together and send it your way...cheers

Not seeing any normal 3-piece ball valves.

are we talking 2 piece or 3 piece at GFI Stainless?

I'm happy to pay a buck or two more to support someone who supports home brewers like Bargain Fittings or AHS.
