Arrow Fuel Guns ??

Hey all I am looking to get a fuel gun and wondered what others were using.
I found other post about this question but they were all about a year old.
The Kyosho, RB and THS all seem to be the same gun at least in appearance.
I like the Losi, Proline and Exceed for thier clear containers and would lean to the Losi just for the price.
But when you fing NIB THS units for 20 bucks that sell normally around 30 dollars you have to wonder is it even worth that.
Looking for recommendation on what to get and not get.

1. Losi Fuel Gun - 39.99
2. Proline Fuel Gun - 54.00
3. Exceed Fuel Gun - 50.45
4. Kyosho Fuel Gun - 46.99
5. RB Fuel Gun - 64.99
6. THS Fuel Gun - 20.00 (ebay)

The RB gun is great. The THS one is nice but the RB gun is faster.

Default Fuel Gun

For me I think the RB gun is a little pricey there is another post although an older one that says the Losi gun is just as good.
Others on this older post talked about the Proline gun but complained about finger pinching.
What I dont like about the RB is the solid container and the price.
I'm thinking of the Losi but was hoping for some feedback from other members.
You can but the THS gun on ebay right now for 20 plus 9 dollars shipping they have 9 left.

The Losi is as fast as the RB but has more advantages like vision on the fuel and a very good fill opening.

HEllo:

I don't know if the other clear plastic ones have the same feature, but the Xceed comes measured at the side, so if you want to be safe of no spilling, you can fill it up to the measure of the tank. So if you are not an expert using the fuel gun(like me, I was still using the bottle) you will take great advantange of this measure.

But the Xceed does not fill the tank to its maximum. Novarossi has made a special cap for this problem:

Tried the Novarossi fuel gun, basically a modified KM fuel gun, one thing it does is it spills fuel everywhere due to overflowing (because of the adapter).

That Novarossi gun is the same gun as the Proline gun. The proline gun does not have the plastic cap though. I modified my proline gun a bit to get it to fill a little bit higher. All you have to do is use a dremel and cut back the brass airtubes a little and then it won't shutoff as early. Took all of about 15 seconds to do the modification.

I really like the KM racing one, it's very fast, you can see that all the fuel has gone in too the tank and almost no spilling. Last season i pitted for a friend and in the pit's we won about 2 seconds per pitstop.

I don't like the RB gun because it doesn't close properly and you can't see when it filled up the tank, i always put it in for 2 seconds and then hope for the tank to be filled.
