Why are you upset with the pump? You purchased a pump with the opposite needed specs of what you intended to use it for. Not the pumps fault. Do a tad of research and you'll see that a low pressure high volume pump is what you need. Topeak offers those, as well as others manufacturers. If you are pigeonholed into buying only from Performance then well....still not the pumps fault.Using the same wheels/tires/valves/etc the cheap pump worked and the expensive one didn't. That's why I'm upset... ...
Because in most other aspects of life, the high end model of any category does everything that low end models do and then some, ALSO specializing in their specific category. So, at that price point, it shouldn't matter. You shouldn't have to do a bunch of research when paying that much for a simple tool.Why are you upset with the pump?

Good luck with performance bike... you could have picked up the Pro 2 for $20 cheaper from universalcycles.. and you could have gotten the Joe Blow Mountain (which is the pump you want for airing up mountain tires) for $40Will have to be something performance bike carries.
I paid $100 for the JB Pro, not gonna go spend another $100ish for something else. Will be exchanging or accepting that I need to use my compressor for tubeless setups.
Once again, because in all other aspects of consumer products, the high end/expensive product always does everything the cheap model does AND what it specializes in. Spending 3x as much money typically gets you out of having to research specific application and usability.You bought the wrong pump. That's not something to be mad at the pump about. It's cool that your old pump did everything you needed it to, the new one probably works better for inflating road tires at the cost of not being useable for the niche purpose of seating tubeless tires.
Was it sold to you or labelled as being suitable for seating tubeless tires? If not, then I don't get why you're mad at the pump because an assumption you made turned out to be incorrect.
Excluding the shadow+ model SLX? Yes, yes I would. But not because of cost, because it's a more prestigious and reputable brand/model.Would you buy a Dura-Ace derailleur and expect it to work better on a mountain bike than SLX just because it costs more?
My point exactly, are you that blind?Wait what??? Both are Shimano....wow. *bangs head on wall*. couldn't help but make fun of this cause im a "noob" and know more.
