Pedro's and pros know.
Pedro's knows that pro bike mechanics are tough on their tools. That's why there's the Pedro's Super Prestige Bike Pump: simple, stable, and durable. This road / mountain bike pump's aluminum barrel stands up to the knocks and dings of the shop, and the sleek wooden handle feels comfortable in your hand. Whether you're pumping up 700x23s to 120PSI or fine-tuning your downhill rig to 24, the Super Prestige makes it quick and effortless with a sturdy and stable base, an easy-to-read pressure gauge, and a dual Presta/Schrader head.

Very disappointed, wrong description
I did receive the super prestige, but not the model with the wooden handle as described. Disappointed since it was the wooden handle that caught my eye.
Seems like it is built solid. Stable while pumping. The head does feel a little awkward to mount one handed and lock but it does the job fine. I did notice there is a slight leakage after the final stroke(about 3-4 psi by watching the gauge) but it becomes stable after that.
I suppose I am going to keep it but still disappointed that the description was off, maybe it could have been noted that the model was different? Hope they go in and update the description.
good price - what needs to be said.
my favorite pump
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have not had the same experience as Joel. Of all the (many) pumps I own or have owned, the head on this one is the ONLY one that has 1) really gripped well without air leak and 2) not ripped off the cores of my tubes. My wife (who, admittedly, forces me to pump up all tires) has given up on the other pumps and had me buy a second one of these.
This Floor Pump Blows (and not in a good way)
It's a throw back to being a kid when we had a crappy floor pump we bought at a garage sale. Except that pump cost me $5 compared to $75. The base is somewhat unstable. It's hard to engage with a presta valve and resulted in my wife breaking at least one off. However, the worst part is that if I go above 110 PSI the air flows back into the pump leaving my tire lacking the air it needs and deserves.
