    Got to admit, it's close. But no way would Badger break down and put an 1/8 BSP air connector on their products!! lollollol

    The AIRCOBRA is made in the USA with 100% American materials

    Yup, I think you're right, @Robbyrockett2. Patriot/Krome/Renegade with 1/8 BSP end on the air valve assembly... Say it ain't so? Not from me. More like BFT! I hate having to deal with all these darned converters and adapters.

    Bare foot teens?
    Blue force tracker?
    LOL im not gonna put the first thing i thought of

    LOL it actually is kinda cool if you're into badgers. 1/8 bsp, married rocker, wide 2 horn needle protector ,all stock. Plus you can finally unscrew an assembled air valve assembly

    lol "Bare foot teens?" Ummm, No. Actually stands for 'Bout F-in' Time. And it should be. I do like Badgers, and not based on my as yet horrible productions made with said instruments.
    They go together and apart easily and are just less twitchy about reassembly. Unlike my H&S Infinity:sus:.

    first i was thinking more along the female anatomy lines for BFT, but then i thought that didnt really make much sense in context so i looked it up and just threw out the first few things that came up. LOL
    I figured it out before i posted but still thought it would be fun to toss em in there

    Odd for a Badger you can spray with the needle guard off. Two separate pieces like Iwata.

    Looks like a SATA 4 to me. And they are a mixture of Badger parts. It is actually a good idea to swap the airvalve on your Badger for this 1/4" one and get rid of odd size couplings and adapters.

    I wonder what the price on the Cobraair will be?

    Quite a few years ago when Marissa Oosterlee gave a class in the US at Badger's offices, they presented her with a Renegade with her name on. It had the 1/4" airvalve. So I do not know why Badger is still clinging to their old size or why they don't offer it to purchase.

    I just got word that they are available in South Africa with all their spares and that price for the airvalve from Coast is really good. It has a removable two prong needle cap. And a user serviceable/adjustable needle bearing.

    EDIT TO ALL MY PREVIOUS POSTS. I meant 1/8" airvalve, not 1/4".

    Ouch is right! You can practically get two Badger air valve units for the same price.
