bumping this to see if there are any other updates and if anyone noticed a difference between the stainless steel pump head vs the food grade plastic? with a $20 difference in price, wondering whether the SS is that much better.

My thoughts on the stainless head is simply that stainless is harder to strip out if it needs to be dismantled, and warpage should be non existent, not that it is much of an issue in the composite head from what I understand.

I have a March and a Chugger on my stand and they both work identical. If I had it to again I'd get the stainless head just because it's so pretty honestly the plastic has been fine so far

Not only is it better for re-threading, but it will take a direct hit much better than the plastic ones (believe me I know). I tend to think that with the plastic heads that they are being stressed with a metal pipe fitting on them and getting smacked just right will snap it off.

I have not seen any difference in performance between the two (speaking of the heads only as all my pumps are March).

When you get your pump will you take pictures side by side? (March X Chugger)

Thanks in advance!

Your only complaint is the cord length?
