1. this is not used. this is BRAND NEW, the outside hose has been used for a short while and isnt shiny anymore
2. any and all of these CFCs use barbs to attach the hose. These barbs will leak. If clamps are tightened enough, all leaks disappear. I've put extra hose length in there that will probably be altered anyway, so see no point in tightening clamps this much. BTW, that drip is when all ends of the hose are plugged and full city pressure is put on the hose. you'll never do this under normal use. I bet any other one will leak as well if you put enough pressure in them.
3. i hadn't looked on ebay, but the ones on ebay don't have the hose connections, which will run you about $8-10 more. That's a pretty decent price though. I was just going off of what I had read here about going rates for CFCs.
New price, $60 to cover materials, or trade for CO2 equipment (tank, regulator, sankey D coupler).
