I think they are way overpriced. I am using an older version of this, which I expected would die quickly. 4 years later still works perfectly and still accurate.Check out the Prestacycle store on Amazon. They have a full range of products.

They have a variety of offerings (cheaper and more expensive)
I use a blowgun nozzle with a variety of 1/8 NPT fittings to a press-on presta valve adapter to get the most airflow for seating tires. Never fails me.Where can i find a high quality presta fitting for my air compressor? I just have a shrader head and it works with presta valve core removed most of the time but doesn’t transfer enough airflow for stubborn tires (too much leakage). I would also be fine with an adapter that works well but it needs to be able to mate to presta valve with core removed so standard valve thread adapters don't work. I used one when i used to work in a shop and have seen them in shops recently but haven’t had any luck finding one to purchase.
edit: i just found some, don’t know what i was smoking last time i couldn’t find any. Still curious of which is best for presta with core removed for mounting tubeless.
The convenience of using a compressor with an inflator and good gauge should not be underestimated. Some call it lazy, I call it saving my energy for the climbs. 😄I honest could care less for a gauge on a presta compressor inflator that would be used just to setup tubeless tires, at least in my case I prefer to use a floor pump and a good gauge, no need for a compressor.

I use the ribber tip that came with my air gun kit. Remove core, place tip on valve core and squeeze air gun lever.

given how expensive the prestaflator stuff is, I expected better quality, but once I got one in hand, I realized it's basically just a harbor freight quality tool.I have an old Harbor Freight inflator I grafted a dual head from a broken pump. The gauge is about 10 psi off but pretty cheap. I use it to seat tubeless tires and sometimes filling tires. I always use a good gauge to check/adjust pressure.

I don't use the blower because mine is absolute craptastic quality (lower quality than the prestacycle inflator). I do need a better one, but it's a pretty low priority item at this point.
It's a slip on one I had sitting around. The schrader threads of the adapter fit in an NPT 45* elbow and makes it easy to stick on valve with the handle at an angle out of the way of the disk brake/cassette. I made it 15 years ago out of random parts in my garage, now it's used daily at my work space in the shop.Why adapters and fittings? It seems like those could impede flow and would take extra time. An blower nozzle directly on the valve is simple and works perfect for me.
trust me, mine sucks. the valve is sticky and it's not really controllable. I've disassembled it the best I can in an attempt to clean/lubricate it and it doesn't help.Seems to me even the cheapest ones work fine and need no improvement.
If the op is looking for the presta head mainly to seat tires then a simple $5 blower nozzle is superior to anything out there ime.
