I was scared of the rotaty or spinning ones cause of the swivel joints on any brand so i bought this combo is it good can you guys please fill me in please. I was gonna use them to point in directions i choose is this possible with the attatched photos?
I have a soft tubing build are there ok? Omg olease help me of i need to cencel my order and get rotary male to female i will if i NEED to even though i am trying to stay away from "rotary" fittings let me know please guys..
The non rotary are fine. No need to cancel. Just keep in mind that you will have very limited control over which way these wind up facing when they are attached.
Have you used these? I was hoping on holding the fitting where i wanted it to point, then finger tighten the male to male adapters that holds it in? Fair enough or impossible? @ciarlatano

That won't work. You need rotaries for that. Just grab some Bitspower rotaries, its your best solution.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Darn it, I cancelled than thanks for the quick reply as they were not shipped yet.


Now the problem I have with bitspower is that they are too expensive, it is like 29.99 for just one and multi packs are way to pricey.


How about these from Alpha cool they are priced reasonably https://www.amazon.com/Alphacool-Fem...fitting+g1%2F4

Also this 2 pack is priced ok aswell https://www.amazon.com/EK-AF-Angled-...fitting+g1%2F4

Only cause amazon has fast free shipping. Plus returning and canceling is a breeze also getting on the phone with customer servers 24/7 no prob. I worry about smaller retailers often they don't have the leverage of a huge company like amazon. Where do you suggest I look?


Edit, just checked performance pcs website all the 90's are like 20 bucks or more same if not more expensive than amazon although they do have more options but I just need black or black nickel when amazon already has ***.

uhhh

I personally would not recommend non rotary 90s. if when you thread it and its snuggle to your male/male what happens if its facing wrong way? see how my soft tube causes my 90 to be on a angle on pump? if that was turned half other way i would have been screwed but i USED rotary 90.
lol Try ekwb rotary 90's. i have 6 and non leaked. link below. they have silver also. do remember tho, every ones silver is not same. i bought bitspower rotary 3 way and it didnt match all my ekwbs color

*** lol i was trying to stay away from any "rotary and just go with fixed standard fittings but it seems as though you can't point them in the direction you want even with male to male adapters? Which i thought would be possible since you can hold the female to female in the position you wanted and just twist the male to male tight? I don't see how this is not possible can some explain this to me please? Or else i guess i will wait till next week when i have some more money to get basically the one and only brand everyone trusts bitspower but it is again a "rotaty swivrl joint which introduces more points of failure due to the swiveling joint lol

Hi there

Personally I'm using Barrow fittings and never have issues with them, for price they're hard to beat

https://www.amazon.com/Barrow-Degree...RQL&ref=plSrch

Hope this helps

Thanks, Jura
