Strengths:    Works great when it works.

Weaknesses:    Mine lasted two months past the warranty. The replacement hose was useless. BTW, msrp is now $100.

Bottom Line:   
The pin on the valve lever works loose, and renders the pump useless (as Amazon reviews point out). The cheap Topeak rebuild kit is not meant for this valve head, so you have to buy the pricey ($30) replacement hose. The replacement hose fittings DO NOT FIT THEIR OWN PUMP, and the included adapters were all irrelevant to this pump. I had to cut the replacement hose to fit the pump (which makes it unreturnable...) on to the pump fittings. And then none of this solved my problem, since air now rushed out around the top of the pump (probably from the bleeder mechanism). $130 total for a year of use makes this pump a terrible value.
