We’d have preferred a longer hose, but that’s our only real criticism of the Topeak Joe Blow Sport. It’s very stable, thanks to its large, wing-shaped metal base, and construction is good quality, too.
While the chunky plastic handle doesn’t have quite the pleasing feel of the best wooden ones, it’s smooth on top with finger shaped moulds underneath and very comfortable to use, with no hard edges. The gauge isn’t that large, but it’s mounted a third of the way up the barrel and is clear to read. Overall, this is a great quality budget pump.
