I'm about to pull the trigger on 8 ball-lock corny kegs. The cheapest I could find shipped to me was the "Economy Ball Lock Kegs" at Keggle Brewing. These seem to be ones with loose tops and bottoms.

Anyone have these? Are you satisfied? Thanks for your input

So...you just have to glue the tops or bottoms back into place with epoxy or something? Seems pretty easy...I would go for it. Looks like an awesome price.

Locktite Marine epoxy from Ace Lowes Depot will get those rubbers back on with ease.

I got four for Christmas. I had one with the valve "broken". It works fine, but the tab to flip up has a large chip in it. Other than that, they are great. I don't even think any of them have loose tops or bottoms, at least nothing to speak of, and they are also fairly clean on the outside.

I put my info in there and got 42 dollars for shipping for 4.

http://stores.kegconnection.com/Detail.bok?no=82 will be a little cheaper with shipping to me. It may differ based on your zip code.

So I just wanted to follow up on this. I ended up ordering 8 of the "Economy Ball Lock Kegs" from Keggle Brewing and I could not be more happy!

I found absolutely ZERO PROBLEMS with all of the kegs. ALL the rubber tops and bottoms were securely fastened. The insides were extremely clean and all the poppets were in great condition. They came with brand new o-rings that were even lubed up and ready to rock! They were even shipped pressurized! I could not find a cheaper price either. I was able to get 8 for $208 SHIPPED!

So bottom line, this was an extremely big YAY for me and would HIGHLY recommend them
