I plan to buy a system this week. specifically the TST 507RV, however I havent made up my mind on the sensors. I found the unit with 4 sensors for $220.15 with free shipping. They offer any of the three available sensors for the same price. The options are the standard with user replaceable batteries, the flow through with user replaceable batteries or the commercial truck quaility sensors with a 5-7 year lithium. The truck quality appear more rugged but I would appreciate opinions and/or recommendations from current users.

I have the "standard" sensors and they seem rugged enough to me. I suppose you could break them if you over-tightened. In my opinion, they are expensive enough that I wouldn't want to have to buy new ones, even every 5 years.
I kinda wish I had the flow-thru sensors but was concerned about the length. I will say that you lose almost no air when putting them on or off the valve stem.

I thought the TST would replace the batteries if you sent them back. I don't think you have to buy a whole new set when the batteries die. BUT.. I've been wrong many, many times before.

I also like the idea of the flow though's but the length does concern me slightly. In reality taking the standards off when I need to air up is not a significant inconvenience after all I will still have to remove the cap. And I do like be able to replace the batteries myself.
Thanks for your input.

Hawkshead system is 239$, pretty close in price and works well. Just an alternative.
