Barrow Fittings

post #1 of 811
Thread Starter 
After reading very little information on these fittings, I decided to take the plunge and get a few from ebay/aliexpress as they are quite cheap. I bought the following:

4x 90 degree rotary
4x 90 degree low profile
1x male to male extender
2x hardline fittings (14mm od acrylic tube)

Also bought four 45 degree rotary and a drainage valve, but they haven't come in as I bought them from aliexpress.

My overall impressions are very good. The fittings seem to be made very well with a few scuffs and scratches, but I can't complain as they are quite cheap. I don't know if any of them leak as I haven't tested them yet. I will update this thread once I do.

Here are some pictures

And these are bitspower ones, but without the logo on I guess....just like the phobya and "no-name" nickel compression fittings are the same.

Ive used some of these before in a pinch, they look and feel like the bitspower fittings but the color on the orings is not quite right. Honestly they work well as long as you tighten all the way.

I'm only finding a few of these for sale and they are pretty much the same price as bitspower fittings.

Bitspower $12

Barrow $5.30
http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Barrow-Black-G1-4-45-degree-swivel-adapter-seat-rotating-elbow-TWT45-B01/1165874178.html

They are less than half the price of bitspower where I live. When someone says they get something cheap why question it?
They also don't have stoopid logos all over them.

Don't buy then from moddiy then. It's more expensive... EBay/aliexpress sellers sell them for a lot cheaper. It's the exact same thing

Yeah many people have been using Barrow fittings for a while now and love them. Lowfat is one that comes to mind.

I've read in several places, but I can't confirm if it's actually the case or not, that they are all made by the same manufacturer, they just sell the same fittings they make for Bitspower under the Barrow name with a different, more matte, finish and no BP logo. They certainly appear to be the same fittings other than the finish.

I agree they feel like they are unbranded BP fittings. The only real difference I have souns is in the o-ring color as the BP ones are a brighter green but I have never had a leak with them.

It would not surprise me if that was at least partly true. You only have to compare a Bitspower rotary 90 to an old model EK rotary 90 to see that the only difference is the finish. Their compressions are identical to the Bitspower ones as far as I can tell holding them in my hand.
I just the other day bought some more extensions and also a couple of their Multi link knock off to see how they compare.
