i just bought 2 of these (4 total) for $50 before shipping. I "made an offer" and received a reply within a couple hours. Less then $15 each shipped. Just wanted to let everyone know about the deal.

This is my first official purchase toward my new herms rig. boy o boy am i excited!

Just bought two. Thanks for looking out.

I saw the name Forrest and saw the location and figured it was from AHS.

I didn't realize that that's Forrest from AHS! So how low did you go on the bids? I really didn't expect to win the auction at that price. glad I did though! great deal!

you can take apart the 3-piece for cleaning.

You can take both apart, just the 3 pce is easier - undo the four bolts and the middle drops out. 2 pce you need to unscrew the end from the main body. Also 3 pce can be taken out of a hard piped system much easier.

My valves arrived today (UPS tried yesterday but I wasn't home). They're awesome. I can't wait to get this build going.
