    k200 fills up my outcast pac 1200 to 2.5 psi with no problem and works a charm on my scadden assult as well, Nice thing about it is the tips fit perfectly into either valve

    i reccomend a pump that hooks up to the battery to if you really want to inflate quickly, i normally just top off with the k pump and use it for on river adjustments

    I agree with BT, spend the money on a quick battery pump. I have one that I got form Cabela's that hooks up to my truck battery. Life is much better wtih that. I also have a K100 and K200, but much more fun for topping off.

    I bought a K100 right when they came out and never needed a bigger pump, and for $75.00 it's a good deal. If in the future you bought a larger raft, the K200 or the 2 stage pumps would serve you better. Lot's of guys buy the LVM 12 volt pump but for $140.00 I think it's a rip off, no offense to those that spent their money on them! Here is basically the same pump for a lot less: http://www.amazon.com/Rule-iD20-Marine-Inflator-Deflator/dp/B000O8B89A I bought one of these 7 years agofor $62.00 and it is still going strong and no adaptors are needed. LVM sued Rule but lost because the impellar is one millimeter smaller. For around $150.00 for both of these your set up for as long as your fishing.

    Just use the blue cone shaped adapter. Just hold it up to the valve (kiss) and pump. 200 is a good choiceas it is double action. I have one of those $140. LVM, but I bought it back when it was $100. 12 years ago. Still using it and faster than friends, but not a big issue. I then top off with the 100.
    I did use the 100 on my Escape to see how it did. Took quite a bit, but again, it is single action.
