I need Compression Fittings!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
1/2" ID 3/4" OD.

I'm really confused... there are so many on the market at such difference prices! Which ones tend to be of the best quality for the price you pay for them?
I was looking at Bitspower Black Sparkle for $6 a piece (8+ bulk).

IMO the bitspower rotary fittings are the best. They are pricey though as they are around the $17 each mark.

I have always liked Bitspower fittings and I think Frozen CPU has the biggest selection.

I was really torn on which fittings to buy as well but in the end I came to the conclusion that if you're choosing between fittings of the same material it really doesn't matter. Now obviously do a little research to make sure that the company you choose doesn't skimp out on seal quality. At the end of the day when you choose bitspower or enzo you're paying for their beautiful appearance. All of the top manufacturers have quality fittings.

^^ spot on.

@OP The Bitspower fittings are sublime. The problem is when you can find them for a low price there is limited stock. See with Jab-tech... only 3 in stock.

Also... Remember extenders! Those fittings are fat and occasionally (like on the bitspower D5 pumptop) you'll need extenders to get that fitting on next to a stop fitting or other tight spot.

You'll only have that problem with 1/2 by 3/4 compressions for the most part.

I use Enzo first and BP second, because Enzos are smaller diameter making it easier to use them in confined spaces.
