      >> That price is hilarious.
      Hilarious low or hilarious high? We’ve had many cheap kits and they all pretty much leak and make a simple task difficult.

        Hilariously high. It’s a pair of standard veterinary syringes. You can get practically the same kit with brass fittings on ebay for less than a tenner.

        “We’ve had many cheap kits and they all pretty much leak ”

        I smell bullshit.

    Hate to say it but he’s right….Kit (at most) should be half of what they are charging.

    To be honest, Park has some tools that are a very good value (their hex keys and most of their wrenches are high quality and solid values), but they also have a history of charging silly high prices for other products given what you are actually getting. A perfect example is their 6.2 large sized torque wrench, which they sell for $126. That torque wrench is nothing but a rebadged Taiwanese generic torque wrench with Park Tool colors. The Taiwanese wrench generic wrench can be had on Amazon for $30. It literally has the exact same internals and external scale as the Park model but the Park model sells for 4 times the identical generic one. Another example is their new alloy chain cleaner. They are selling that thing for $90, and it is literally nothing but a metal enclosure with a scrubber, and a bay to hold some fluid and nothing more. It’s at most a $20 item being sold for almost $100. Laughable.

    I would seriously get this BUT that price is absurdly high. I mean, I would pay $50, maybe even $75. But cmon Park Tool, you really went overboard on the pricing on this one. You would probably sell three times more of this if you sold it for $75, which would have made you more money. Don’t go the way of that golden Silca Pump that sells for $500. You know better.
