Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am going to begin building my single tier, three keg system and I wanted everybody's opinion on cam and groove disconnects from www.proflowdynamics.com
. Especially you Bobby M.!
My question is:
What are your opinions on the benefits of using one material over another?
I am jealous of the awesome stainless setups that everyone's using; but I'm hung over paying 3x (typically) the price for stainless over aluminum or polypropylene. My opinion swings mainly over price because I haven't seen a huge difference in the capabilities of the three materials. I crunched the numbers and came up with the following based on the need for six disconnect assemblies:
Six type F adapters: $23.52
Six type D couplers: $34.68 which comes to $58.20 without tax and shipping.
Six type F adapters: $5.10
Six type D couplers: $11.28 which comes to $16.38..
Six type F adapters: $2.34
Six type D couplers: $10.74 which comes to $13.08..
I'm honestly leaning more towards aluminum because I'm willing to pay the extra $3 for metal over plastic; but is there an operational reason to pay the $58.20 for stainless? Looking forward to reading all of your replies! Cheers.
