Strength:

Good handle, stable base. Inflate high volume and high pressure tires with ease.

Weakness:

When new, it is so tight to remove a hose from presta valve.

Gauge is close to read and very precise. Pumps at pressing and lifting - it is useful when you try to inflate tyres with tubless convertion kit (such as notubes or noflats). Double head means you never have to swap parts. You may use it with Presta or Schrader without changing anything. 2009 Blackburn line does not include Airtower 5, but Airtower HP instead now. I don't need 220 psi, but I need a gauge at the top of the pump with Schrader compatibility. Who wants only Presta-specific floor pump? So I'm glad that I've got Airtower 5 as long as it is on the market.

Strength:

sturdy handle, durable base, lifetime warranty. gauge is at the top of the pump.

Weakness:

none

This is the best pump on the market by far it is all metal from the shaft to the base so it feels sturdy.. It will give you the most air put out per pump, it takes about 12 pumps to totally fill my mountain tires. But if you need use for those skinny road tires it has high volume and high pressure knobs at the click of a button towards you feet. Also another cool feature is that the head unit is at the top of the pump and not the bottom so no more squinting to see the psi #'s. Also a huge benefit is that it comes with a lifetime warranty against failure so no worries there. I would strongly recommend this pump to anyone who is looking for a new one or anyone who currently has a park.
