I'm sure John has a master gauge on his trailer. He may even be able to calibrate/change it for you.

I have a liquid filled of some sort. It's nice... cost around $50... was given to me as a gift.

I have a digital model, can't remember the make, but I got it from a mechanic friend of mine. It's not a Wally-world digital model, but it's not the top of the line either in price. Mine's always been "on" when I check it against John's master gauge at the track, and I've had it about 3 years.

Don't get a cheap one for use at the track, and try to keep it in a nice impact free container.

I use the higher quality pencil gauges. They typically run $5-8 and are guaranteed to be within 1%.
Our test in spec consistently and they take a lot of abuse.

I had a 30$ Bike master I bought from the Honda dealership. It lasted three trackdays and one race weekend. Last weekend I used it then went out on the track and when I came back to check my pressure the needle went all the way around and other side of the pin somehow

so i guess i need to pay attn here also

I've used a lot of gauges and sooner or later they all bite the dust. Milton gauges are sometimes pretty decent and accurate for the money, but my favorite gauge is by Pegasus Racing:

I sell a liquid filled gauge gauge for $60, that I have been very happy with. I've had mine for 2 years now and it is within 1/2 pound of my master gauge consistently. They are built by Intercomp for a independent dealer. Good quaulity and very accurate.
