:yeahthat:

Only if you are talking about performance. Maddman hasn't been know to have some pretty bad customer service. However they are under new ownership so maybe the customer service will be better. :praying:

rocket valve is better than the other but customer service has been known to be terrible. If you get it, buy a rebuild kit (or 2 or 3) right away for it because rumor had it he was trying to sell the business and you may not find them anymore.
yes, the valve pin/cupseal are sort of incorporated...meaning, they are like any other valve that comes with a pin, spring and cupseal but as you can see, they only use that kind of cupseal, spring and pin.
it is worth the money to buy it...it really is. but get the extras as I said or sometime down the road, you may find you can't use it anymore for a lack of rebuild parts.

rocket valves are teh shecks. never heard of a bandit valve, but it looks somewhat like a stock valve thats been modded:questionicon:.
if you dont go with the rocket valve then new designs is your next best bet.

:yeahthat: the NDZ one is pretty reliable, plus the company is a little more reputable than Maddman...and has better service...
