Valken Quick Disconnect Problems

So just wanting to know is there anyone else out there that has been having issues with the Valken quick disconnects not fitting on different players fill nipples? seems to not fit on about 50% of them, old or new. Not sure if they are made by valken but they are the ones that come with the valken fill station.

What are field owners opinions about the best type of Quick Disconnect to use?

Also if you look at the fill nipple, sometimes the over use of them cause a burr or bump to form on them. This causes the nipple to get caught.

How many ball bearing thingums are in that part though ^ I really like having the disconnects with the 10 balls as they are far more reliable in staying on and not hitting someone in the face. Most come with 6.

do the self sealing ends, and you don't really have to worry about them hitting a kid in the face. I'm using the ones from August industries, and they seem to fit virtually everything.... and will seal if they don't connect them properly.

I took GatSplat's advice about the August Industries ends about a year ago and have only had 2 blown o-rings and 0 problems in the time since. They are very well worth the money....
