The best compression fittings

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Is there a specific brand or kind of compression fittings that work best, or are they all the same?

Thanks

I'm not sure about working better, but Bitspower fittings definitely look better (especially the Black Sparkle series) and are the highest quality compression fittings.

Danger Den/Bits Power are a commendable choice.

For the most part any fitting from an established manufacturer and/or vendor will do the job. I would steer away from some unknown company that manufacturers in countries known for shoddy craftsmanship and quality control.

I wish I had spent the extra 2 dollars per fitting to get the matte black ones, I went with the black sparkles. It hasn't been long that I have had them, I may see if I can exchange them and add money for the black ones.

Good choice tho.

Can you post a pic of the Black Sparkles? Every pic I've seen makes them look silver with a gray-ish tint, only the pure matte black ones actually look black in the pics.

Pretty please? I've been trying to find pictures of the matte ones too, to see what they really look like in a case, and all I can find are pictures of the sparkle ones.

It may be a bit late but if you want a fitting with some bite (to prevent leaks), even though they are pretty ugly compared to the BP fittings, the Koolance fittings are a great option.

I've still got time; I'm not ordering anything for at least a week, probably two. My family keeps asking what to get me for Christmas...I'm thinking about just divvying up all the parts of my loop to different family members XD
