    Yeah, the hand pump I have is a high pressure one. The Ascot is supposed to be 0-6 PSI and a GL1100 I also did the seals on is supposed to be 14-21. Not easy to dial in with a 0-300 PSI scale when the first major mark is at 50. I got the pump from the PO of the 'wing when I bought it, I'll have to look and see if I can get my hands on a low(er) pressure one. I aired them up again about 36 hours ago and have left them alone since, I'm going to go check in a little bit with the screw-on pump and see what it looks like.

    You should expect a slight pressure drop as the air gets heated when your inflating forks. More than 2~3 psi drop would show a problem

    I'm not a complete idiot, but, I'm working on it
