Bravo foot pump

Hi. I'm after a new foopump for my frib because the supplied one is rubbish.
From what I read the bravo 10 seems to be the 'best' and has a 5 litre capacity. However the bravo 8 which is described as smaller has a 6.5 litre capacity,which confuses me a bit as I would have thought it would be the other way around.

I take it the 8 will inflate quicker? High pressure is not an issue as no air deck. The 8 can also come with a built in gauge.

Just need an expert to confirm to me that I've got this right :-)
Thanks

What pressure do you need to get to?

I just use a 12v airbed pump to get the volume in mine, then top up with the foot pump. Because of the fibreglass hull I don't think the tube pressures need to be so precise.

Probably 3 to 3.5 psi?

A camping shop double action stirrup pump does a great job.

Fribs are all LP and I think you mean 2.5psi. If so you have no need of the HP floor ability (dual chamber) of the Bravo 10. A Bravo 8 is the optimum one for you.... I'd get the 8m with the inbuilt gauge.

Edit: Oh yeah... or 250mbar... the Aerotec tubes are 240mbar.

Camping type one would be fine - but no gauge

I'll get the 8

Thanks guys!

Thestig is offering a faulty hp bravo on bits and pieces for sale, I have this pump with the same problem on high pressure, but would pump to 2.5 no problem
