Strength:

Relatively well-built. Can be used as a regular pump.

Weakness:

This shouldn't be something that works when everything else is perfect, it should be the 800lb gorilla that seats any tubeless tire at any time. As it is, it lets out pressure too slow (partially due to the inherent restriction of Presta valves) with too little air (chamber should be bigger or go to more PSI) and worst of all, it is designed to have the Presta valve-core in place. If you could dump all that pressure suddenly into the tire WITHOUT the valve core restricting it, it would be a huge benefit. This would require a specially designed valve head of course...but seating tubeless is the entire reason we bought this pump. The "regular" pump function is fairly poor, spongy and doesn't pump nearly as much air as my HV floor pump. This is a big disavantage as well when you get "close to" seating a tire, but it doesn't get on on all the way. Adding some pump-strokes after the air in the chamber has expired can help seat it, but the low-volume/spongy action of the pump makes this very difficult. Wouldn't buy again, may try a competitor.

Strength:

Sturdy construction. Long hose.

Weakness:

Valve head doesn't work well on presta unless you switch the grommet to the short presta. Check valve will let air pressure reverse direction sending the handle right back at you.

Strength:

High air volume pump, solid build, large gauge, long hose

Weakness:

Chamber dumps air way too slow, pump head finicky

Had high hopes for this as a replacement for my old pump and DIY 2 liter coke bottle "air tank" for seating tubeless tires.

Unfortunately it releases the air almost as slow as just directly pumping air from a regular pump and wouldn't seat a single new tire I tried. Had to go back to the coke bottle again.

Called Blackburn and asked if there was maybe something wrong with it or something that could be remedied and they took my number and said they'd get back with me after talking with their engineers. I haven't heard back after 2 weeks so I'm just going to return the pump where I bought it from.
