Default New WFMG 2.0T Kite Pump

I received a demo WMFG Pump 2.0T to checkout just before a short trip to the islands. I was able to get in short kiting sessions on both days in interesting settings.



I really like the 1.0T cutting back strain, increasing speed and ease of inflation. Some guys use electric pumps, compressors but pumps work fine for me and in particular this easier design. You need to twist the filler hose a bit with the 1.0T pump before attaching it to the kite to avoid it detaching but once done, it stays put. I switch between double and single action pumping when I really need to pressurize a kite or pretty much always when inflating iSUP boards. Once you try one of these taller pumps you won't want to go back to a short one, for very long at least.



The new 2.0T pump is even better than the first version. The new softer, more ductile hose attaches without any twisting and stays put during the inflation. Switching from double to single action became much easer with the flick of a lever verses unscrewing and replacing a port plug with the 1.0T pump. The pump has a durable, solid feel lacking in some past pumps out there which might be lucky to make it through a season before the seals gave out.



I had reservations about travel with the longer pumps but it wasn't an issue on this trip. The faster and easier inflation over my normal short travel pump was a nice addition.



Thanks WMFG for the innovation, please keep it coming.
