Default who makes the best fuel gun?

I'm in the market for a new fuel gun and I have heard good and bad about fuel guns, but the best way for me to make a good decision is listen to what all the people have to say. So, who makes the best fuel gun?

I have the Collari and it is virtually identical to the RB. I would choose RB because it is reliable and not a bad price. Check your local RB dealer.

Yeah, I am not a big fan of fuel gun, but if you look at pictures at the recent 1/8th WORLD, you will see that RB (gold/silver) fuel gun everywhere.......

And yes, the Dynamic fuel gun is garbage..........another good example, GOOD STUFF never cheap. Cheap stuff never good.........(ah, most of the time)

Yup, they all tend to leak a bit. The only thing they are good for is about 2 seconds saving per pit stop, which can make the difference sometimes in your finish position.
You gotta decide if it is worth it.
BTW, go www.rbproducts.com , click "products", click "other" and check it out.
They also make a oring kit to rebuild the gun if you like.

I have used 3 different dynamite guns and they were all good. The only thing I don't like about them is they take about half second longer to empty. No leaking. Maybe me and my friends just got lucky.
