which ever one you choose get some sort of case to carry and store it in...

and always hold it pointing down when full

a lot of peeps complain that they leak, but the treat them like crap and throw em around

I own both the Losi and the Pro-Line fuel gun. The Pro-Line is 10 times the quality of the Losi, and is faster IMO. My Losi leaks a little too, & I've done several things to it to keep it from leaking as bad, but still drips alittle when full. I do like the way I can fill the gun better with the Losi, but that's about it between the two.

Between the Losi and the Pro-Line, I would pay the extra cost and get the quality gun. If you want a Losi, I'll sell you mine for $25.00 shiped...

I have both the proline and the losi gun and my proline gun never gets used, i reakon the plastics on the losi gun are more durable than the proline gun, my proline got dropped and the handle broke off, it was fixable but my losi gun has seen worse and its never broken, and its cheaper. The fill lid on the losi is a better solution aswell, ive had to search for the cap on the proline a few times. The only thing i prefer on the profine gun is the measurements on the side are the right way round.

....Yea my Losi leaks..a lot..It started when I put fuel in it....I have never really used it, It started leaking the first time I tried to use it..and I came to the conclusion that If a 2 second longer pit stop is the difference between winning or losing..i need to drive better..

It was designed that way. In the heat of the moment during the main you can quickly read how much was used. fill to zero then use no subtracting.
