Any reason not to order 5.9" ( 1/4" Taper Tip) P/N 74695A12?

Its .6" longer and $.17 cheaper. The only difference I see is in the tip which affects the outer plastic that it comes in which is cut open and thrown away, right? Should have no affect on the actual part used in our application?

It is unclear if the insert is bigger on that one, or the extra length is just that of the outer part to make the tapered tip. I would suspect the innards would be exactly the same as that would be cheaper for the manufacturer to make. That being said, it is cheaper. I typically just push a small philips screwdriver in the tip to push the insert out. This would be harder with the taper tip, but one could pull it out the back with some tweezers.

Yeah, it's kinda the point. Ability to maintain proper pressure to maintain proper carb, while slowing down pour without the use of long lines.

What pressure are you running?

You might try cutting a little bit at a time off until you find a happy medium for you.

Im running 12 psi of pressure to keep the carb level I like. Im new to kegging and I was getting bad foam (with 8ft lines) so I ordered this dropped it in and not the poor is great just slow. I need beer NOW! Thanks guy in the end I get a better pour. I might cut the lines down to 5'
