Bravo pump

I know this has been discussed alot but just need something cleared up.

The Bravo BST12 and the BST12HP are the same except the BST12HP will pump up to a higher pressure. Is this correct?

If so the BST12HP is only needed for a air floor SIB. Is this correct?

In short yes, but to confuse things there is now the BTP. Bravo plan to phase out the BST. Give us a call tomorrow if you want more info.

There are also a few variations: rechargeable battery or not, and others, I think.

just be careful when using these 2 step pumps on or after beach , sand get's into the high pressure ( i think it's a piston pump ) and kills it pretty quickly. If i had a SIB still i'd have a seperate cheapo pump for deflation

Have a look at this review of the BTP12HP I bought from Ribshop earlier this year. Very impressed.

Bravo BTP12 Review

Even if you don't need the HP type now given the small price difference (actually price looks the same at Ribshop?) I'd be tempted to get it anyway.
