I've got the Augusta Response II with the built in hand pump lever. It is high quality and certainly inflates what hadn't been inflated. It comes with a set of rings and things that look like they would just fit a mouse pen*s. I did not have the nerve to try them. I just let it inflate and deflate to get the blood flowing. It does not come with a gauge. (And you know how we engineers like gauges.) I had been using it religiously for a month and actually went up from the smallest size ring to the next one up. The problem is no matter how good it looks in the tube, the second you hit the release button it disappears into a pile of dust. Kind of like the "sadiM touch" (Midas touch in reverse).
It is ready to go while in the tube, but unless you are willing to choke it off, you can't use it while in there. A cruel joke indeed.
If you go to the Franktalk site there are many discussions about
Maybe you can pick one up on ebay. (Eeeeww)
