work great
o-ring resses helps prevent leaks
look nice
these barbs are great , they do what they should and do it well, oring area helps prevent leaking which is a major plus over other barbs, MUCH better then any plastic junk you get with a lot of wc products.

(bought these with another order from another site ncix could do a bit better on the price but theres always price matching for those who have the will)

recessed O-ring
Barbs are a small detail in a WC system that can decide how troublesome (if at all) your loop is going to be. Lots of quality WC part come with plastic barbs or other low quality metals barbs. Don't use these!!

Even if you have a complicated loop (I do - 3 rads, 2 blocks, pump, res) the extra $$ spent will repay itself.

I have only ever used these fittings. I fasten either with zip-ties or Swifty tube clamps. Never had a leak, ever.

That probably boils doing to good planning and patience but these are quality barbs.

I hand tighten, or use a wrench until I feel the slightest pressure. No need to over-tighten, let the recessed O-ring do it's work. 5/5 stars

edit: i use 1/2"ID 3/4"OD tygon

Groove for O-Ring. Shiny chrome!
Not a ghost fitting. Needs tools.
This is a very nice fitting, the o-ring grove makes it very leak-proof. The hex section has some material removed to make these easier to install in tight locations.

Awesome quality, easy to install and fit my 7/16 masterkleer very nicely with no leaks
None whatsoever these are great!
Awesome fittings, bought a couple pairs for my rad and gfx block. Fit very nicely and it was easy to install the 7/16 masterkleer tubing on them.

Easy to install, solid, makes putting on and taking off Tubing much easier, looks great
Kinda Costly
Great little fittings, will buy again. They look great and work great. No leaks! I do recommend these over the silly plastic barbs Swiftech uses for all their stuff

Experience: 6 Weeks

Easy to work with
creates a great seal with the 5/8 inch tubing, also works well with the tygon 1/2 inch tubing. You need to be careful how tight you screw on the barb, the washer gets squeezed out of its socket.

-Nice barbs
-Great replacement for the plastic barbs on my MCW60
-Snug fit
-O ring
-Leak resistant
-They are metal and not the plastic I have learnt to hate
none at the moment
These are great replacement barbs for the MCW60 and would be for various other blocks. I highly recommend these great barbs.

Good quality. Good finish. Very capable of holding the tubes.
Not sure, yet.
Maybe I should blame Koolance for this, but I thought I should mention it anyway.
This nozzle has G1/4 thread, yes. But it's thread is long and can't all fit into the Koolance nozzle body in a 3-way config. The nozzle body has very shallow slots, and only Koolance's nozzles would fit into all five slots without problems.

Experience: 7 Days

Good high quality, they are high flow low pressure barbs with a great seal with the o-rings. I have been running it on a leak test for 4days straight no leaks at all. I replaced several stock barbs with these great ones
They are too awesome?
By far the best barbs on the market, do youreself a favour and buy them. for $6/pair its well worth it
