Sawgelok is the best but they cost 38 bucks each, and that doesn't include a male/female combo. So prepare to be bent over prison style. But 10 balls per QD assures a solid connection. And they are smoother than something I probably cannot mention without being banned.

If you can find them on ebay (they do pop up occasionally) then that's the way to go. The More Beer ones are a good choice and I would go with those if the Swagelok ones weren't available.

We use those couplings at work EVERYWHERE! They hold up great to extreme chemicals/conditions, are easy to use, and easy to modify. The only drawback I've found w/ them is that you cannot mix-and-match between manufacturers even though they appear to be identical to the eye.
