    Anyone used the Nautec "Lola style" valves? Are there any advantages over the Lola ones?

    Supposedly the whip doesn't weep helium. Knobs are supposedly easier to reach too. I haven't seen them in the US but have been interested for a while.

    Yeah, they do look nice, although I think it's $600 or so for a set of valves and the manifold. I can't recall what a set of lolas with a manifold would cost.

    Is this the correct website: Home | NAUTEC ?

    Went looking for the "Lola style" values, and I didn't see them. Knowing me, there were staring me right in the face and I just missed them.

    I don't think they are on either of their websites, however they do have some images of them on their instagram page.

    I had Lolas and switched to Nautec. I like the Nautecs much more. No leaking at the tube, much better for blending mix. Turning the knobs is easier, but not to easy. All in all worth the money.
    Up to my knowledge it is only possible to buy them over a special GUE instructor. I tried to get them directly from Nautec, they didn't answer.
