I have a single regulator that is 30 psi, I just purchased a dual regulator and it had 60 max psi. Why would I ever need 60psi, it seems my new regulator is harder to pinpoint the exact psi as each mark is 2 psi instead of 1.

Thinking of returning it for dual 30psi.

Thoughts?

Pretty much every regulator I've seen or used has a 60 psi low pressure gauge with 2 psi per mark - Taprite, Kegco, Micromatic, etc. For single numbers you go halfway between the marks. The difference one psi makes is like 2.48 vs. 2.56 vols of CO2. Do you really need that much precision?
