I have that same set! Works great! After the initial setup, you're good to go. I use them all the time when I wheel.

what i do is i set them to rough range and they slow down towards the end.

i usually screw them on, go take a piss and remove and adjust to final psi. i am done before all those arb guys with less work.

These are much less than the Staun or Coyote brands. Cheap knockoffs or just a better value?

I find you usually get what you pay for, but not always...

I have that set, I don't use it because it's impossible to get the set screws to be accurate. You end up with different pressure on different tires. I ended up getting the ARB deflators.

I don't know what the other comments are talking about. Unless I just got a bad set, they are slower than the ARB deflators and don't work well at all. They also make deflators which you can put your pressure guage on while they are deflating and see how low...those work way better than these.

I'm not trying to argue, I'm just trying to save others from buying a useless product.

R U talking about this particular brand or this type of deflator in general?

Those boulder deflators did not work for me, 2 of them kept deflating past the set point despite multiple attempts to reset them. Luckily I caught it when I still had about 10psi.

They gave me a full refund and no issues returning

Not to hijack; I have the stauns(2; gave the other 2 away to a wheeling bro) I think they work great and very accurate.....untill you let someone use them, that doesn't know how to attach them. I let someone use them and instead of gripping on the lower stationary part, they gripped on the top/lock ring and messed up the calibration. Lesson learned

I have the stauns and as long as you hold the bottom part of it while screwing them on they work great. Not a single issue have had them for 6 year's.

Got an ARB deflator for a decent price but that's a nice little kit! Not to sure how I feel about the ARB unit unscrewing the valve cores every time they're aired-down but it is what it is now...
