For the California reviewer who complained that there was no swivel....I just bought 3 of them and they all swivel at the gauge end of the hose. I would like to see a 24 to 30 inch hose and I will alter mine soon. The dial is very easy to see and the bleed down button makes getting your tires spot on "simple"! With today's touchy tire pressure sensors causing my dash to light up constantly, I should be able to get the pressures right where the warning lights will go off. I checked several regular "pencil type" tire gauges against my new 4" dial and 2 of them were 5 lbs. or more off. No wonder my warning lights were on more than they were off. Plus I went through a set of OEM tires on my Honda Element in 25k miles. Most likely due to under-inflation. Since proper tire inflation is critical to getting the best fuel mileage, every car maker should include one of these nice pressure gauges with each new car.

Readings were nice.

Was expecting the swivel nozzle but received gauge with solid nozzle. Solid nozzle was a bit awkward in use as both the gauge face/window and nozzle point toward you. One method was to keep the nozzle twisted to square nozzle to valve stem. This was awkward due to the solid/firm/stiff construction of the hose. The other was to bring the hose up and over the gauge face/window to square nozzle up with valve stem. This covers the gauge face/window so it is not ideal.

Apparently the manufacturer recently changed the design so all new gauges come with solid nozzles.

Gauge itself is very easy to read (crisp). Was a fair bit easier to read than the Magnum for some reason.

Would have been perfect with a swivel nozzle.

I've tried many tire gauges, and this is my favourite so far.

The gauge face is huge, with widely spaced 1psi increment markings - making it easy to discern between different readings compared to most smaller mechanical gauges (which might only have tick-marks every 2psi or more).

Since this type of gauge has a bleed-valve that you operate with your thumb, it is easy to just purposely over-fill the tire slightly, attach the gauge, and bleed to the exact right reading. This is a lot quicker than trying to adjust, then check, then adjust then check with even a nice digital gauge.

The build is of good quality, and the hose connects nicely to tire's valve stem.

Overall, highly recommended to anyone who is obsessive about setting a precise tire pressure. And especially recommended to anyone who wants an almost comically large gauge.
