Very interesting review Travis. Especially after just watching your review of the Xisico again, which brought up in my mind a few questions:

1. Does the bleed valve *Not* need to be open first when starting off, as was recommended on the Xisico? I understood the importance of it there, by not straining the piston connecting rod if already under pressure so it made sense to start with the bleed valve open and then closing it once the compressor started cycling.

2. I could see the psi immediately dropping the moment the compressor shut off, both on the deadhead (pretty quick) and on the bottle (slower), but dropping still.

3. Where is the compressor made?

4. Did you have a chance to look inside and see if there are similarities with the Xisico?

5. If it is maintenance-free, what lubes the action? Would it be grease, like the later Xisico "maintenance-free" model?

At the $549 price it does seem like a great deal, especially since I paid $499 for a Made-In-China Xisico.

If you could please let us know the answers to the above questions, and Thanks!

 Iíll answer what I know. I start it with no pressure in the system but that could be with the bleed closed but no pressure in system. I donít know where itís made but looking at it I would guess in China(Just a Guess) the bleed down after shut down was my fault I didnít notice the oring missing in the pressure hose when I attached it. Oring was installed later and no issues. Similar to GTX? Not at all itís totally different. Would I recommend this compressor? Yes! Very well thought out and inexpensive for the features. I didnít have much time to do the video Charlie I contracted Covid right after it got to me and my energy level has been pretty low but Iím getting better. Great questions! I plan on some follow up videos when I feel a little better buddy.

Aww man Travis I did not know about the Covid, please take care of yourself and donít let the pestering of this one over-anxious airgun nut make you do Anything one single second sooner.

Get well Travis!🙏🏻

Seems to want to "walk' on hard surface..? (noticed you had it on some foam inside). Digital buttons of that type will not last IMO. Very good safety features as you pointed out although noise level at OSHA limit for ear /hearing protection.
Think times for fills right inline with other compressors.
Thanks for the review and take care of that Covid...
