If you had to pick one over the other . .

I am doing another ridiculous build (only because I miss my old one) I am not telling you what I am building because that will influence your choice. I should have never sold my last one . Anyways, I would like to hear your opinion(s) concerning which valve I should choose. "If you had to pick one over the other" would you use the RTR Gargoyle Valve or the CCI Phantom Valve? Remember you have to choose!

Thank you for your help and maturity.

I don't understand what you're after or why, but how is this even a question? The Garg valve is just a better valve.

BlueDragon's right man... it totally depends on what it's for and your budget. If you like to tune, and have the extra $, go w/ the RTR valve for the ease of valve spring change-out. If you don't plan to ever use anything but a CCI stock valve spring, the CCI valve is just as good. Also, (which you probably already know) with a CCI valve you have the options of adding a gauge, getting it bobbed, running drop out, back bottle/12gr, or run a hardline for VSC or macroline/quick disconnect to any location under the sun. With the RTR you'd only have the last option... Anyways, again it totally depends on what it's for and what your budget is man. I will say I love the ease of tunability of the RTR valve

Pretty sure RTR's valve insert improves efficiency to.

After doing a little research and finding out you can use cocker valve springs to help with the valve efficiency of the RTR valve I think the decision is simple. I have considered changing the phantom valve spring in the past, but the RTR valve is better based on fact that I will be able to change out spring without taking the whole thing apart.

The back cap of the valve being standard ASA threaded also means that you could move to a straight BBA, screw in dropout or reduce it to a remote fitting if you wanted to.

CCI valve. Cut it down and thread it to replace the top half of a sidewinder or stab.
