Just got the Sevylor pump and tried it today. It was a bit warm in the sun - about 28 degrees at times, and the only complaint i would have is that the pump tube is a bit thin and fragile - mine didn't break or shatter, just went a bit soft with the heat and blew off the pump connection at 0.6 bar. Applied a cable tie and continued, it started to leak at the adaptor end. Same solution and all sorted.

For the money it was great - quieter than the piston phase of the Bravo by far, and not noticeably slower. Theres always something else to be getting ready anyway. Nice long lead to the 12v plug in the car, no need for fiddling with clips on the car battery terminals. For me its a big thumbs up.

Bought one and tried it today taking a couple of sibs up to 3psi and an air floor to 5 or 6 psi (My Seago's air floor isn't a high pressure one) , alongside my old 3psi Bravo 12 (one of these-bulletproof old thing)


It inflated faster than the Bravo 12 and was significantly quieter. Hoses and connectors do appear a bit fragile, but it's an absolute no-brainer at 40. Even the cigarette lighter type socket didn't get that hot, and it's got plenty of cable on it. I might well change it to croc clips for ease of use on the Ballistic though.

I don't know if it'll outlast the Bravo, but it certainly took the hard work out of blowing both boats up and did it a lot quieter than the Bravo did.

Hi so the pump hasn't improved, it still likes to cut out at about 1 or 1.5 psi, so its available for spares or repair if anyone wants to make a bid for it - not that it helps much but it was working fine before it wasn't......

Just whats in the photos, the bag picked up a couple of small nicks but nothing significant.
