So still decisions to make. Hmph!!
I just changed out all my McMaster Carr QD for these Stainless SnapLocks.
I see NO reason to use the McMaster QD.
Here is a badly focused comparison between the male SnapLock and the McMaster
The SnapLock internal diameter is 0.536 " at it's smallest. The McMaster is 0.353" Just a little bit of flow restriction.
Of course the hose barb on the female SnapLock restricts things a bit.
The BLING factor on the stainless connectors is HUGE. I will be posting some more photos on my rig with these connectors on it shortly.
I hope to actually brew with these connectors this coming weekend. I need to get some clamps for my hoses tomorrow.
Pro Flow Dynamics was GREAT to work with. Fast shipping and great communication. I ordered them on Friday and they arrived today, on Tuesday.
I will post a follow up after actually using them to brew.
