I believe that all remotes are created equal. The only thing to consider is coiled or braided (I like coiled, it tends to not hang everywhere becuase when you need it long it stretches, but braided is always hanging.)

Another thing is that the kingman is a good bit shorter than the rest, although it is the cheapest coil I have seen.

I personally like braided remotes. It's just what I've gotten used to. With shrink wrapped stainless steel hose you can get rid of the roughness and shininess of the stainless hose. I've never had an issue with them catching on anything and once. Not to mention it's something people don't see everyday.

Most places don't sell stainless remote lines anymore these days, coiled seems to be more of the modern trend. However, one of ways to get the nicest remote line is to simply make your own. Depending on where you get your parts it can also be cheaper All you need is a hose (around 4 feet), a quick disconnect, a universal fill adapter, and if you want to get fancy - a ball valve from Palmer's.

Yeah, aside from the type of hosing, all remotes are pretty much the same. I used a PMI remote until the valve knob broke. I've since purchased a Rap4 remote with a metal knob and pre-attached slide check.

The Cheapest you'll find is around $30 and any higher than the Total Price of $35 is a Rip Off.

Also, putting together a Remote Line would even cost more than a Fully Assembled Remote Line and also having the Factory Warranty is a Must Have, because if there is a Factory Defect, all one has to do is turn in the Defective Remote Line and get another one for Free or have it worked on for Free as well.
