    Not tried any others if I'm honest - but I have no complaints about my three stage FX and it's getting on a bit now...

    Very quick and easy up to 180 bar and only a little bit harder if you take it up to 200 bar (I don't on my S200 as it gives me 40 shots in the sweet spot at 180)

    only had logun and brockock. the logun was great. armoured hose and a decent length hose. brockock was o/k but a very short hose.
    the only thing i can find wrong is the nut on the steering wheel.

    Hills, all parts readily available, all pumps should be used for 10 mins then rest for 5mins to let the rod stem cool down, the seals last a LOT longer this way.

    Just another comment regarding the Hill,s pumps, imo the feel a lot better built and more robust than other pumps, including the FX.

    I have a Hills mk4 .
    I bought this after the other pump I bought was not man enough. The hills goes up to 300 bar I think. The other felt like it was going to explode at 200
    some rifles, not too many but definitely not enough

    Hills, with DryPak.
    You can learn all you need to know about Hills by the fact they still sell complete service kits for all pumps including the Mk1 which went out of production many years ago.

    My Brocock works without issue, and was made by FX according to the label inside the box.
    I believe that's true of several "brands", largely they're made by FX.

    I had a Webley branded one. It looked very similar to the FX 3 Stage jobby (and probably was).

    It worked fine and easily pumped my S410 and HW100 up.
