The standard gauge you show looks very similar to mine....coloring,size, and the red lettering on the bottom. Mine sez Acugage in red.....couldn't make out what yours is
called. Does that standard gauge have a bevel where it connect to the valve? Kind of looks like it in the pic.....mine doesn't. Anyway, thanks again and I appreciate your
I think the wider central part, and that the nozzle goes in deeper, plus gripping the nozzle all make the Moroso good at not leaking any air. When I do a pressure read, I only hear a puff of air leaving when first inserting. After that, no air leaks out.
I think we might have the same regular one as mine says Acugage also (not sure what you mean by the bevel). I got that from Sears for about $5 or $10 several years ago. My success with the Acugage is hit or miss (similar to you) in that sometimes I'd get a good seal, other times I'd lose a few PSI which was frustrating enough to go for the Moroso, before now using a digital cordless inflator (with replaced chuck) that has automatic shut off when the set PSI is reached.
Glad the pictures are helpful.
