I don't have one but a little bit of unsolicited advice, if you are not already invested in the ball lock format I would strongly recommend pin lock kegs. A year or so ago I sold my ball lock kegs to some friends for $25 and they seemed extremely thrilled at that price which I chose because it was the highest price I ever paid for a keg. Ball lock kegs are drying up and it is not going to be a fun market to be a buyer in in the future. I imagine within two years the price difference between new (these are getting cheaper) and used will be pretty slim.
This is great advice. Prices for ball-lock kegs have jumped $15-20 or more in only a year--if you can find them at all. Fortunately I stockpiled before that happened.johnf wrote:I don't have one but a little bit of unsolicited advice, if you are not already invested in the ball lock format I would strongly recommend pin lock kegs.
Two additional options if keg dimensions are not an issue in your system:
1) Buy pin lock and install a conversion kit: http://www.cornykeg.com/store.asp?pid=31342
2) Just buy some pin lock quick disconnects and install them on your lines using swivel nuts, so you can easily switch between BL and PL disconnects if needed.
