    Does anyone use the phoenix systems maxpro reverse brake bleeding system and if so is it worth it? Are there better options?

    We have this and like it. Not really a big need for it as the vacuum bleeder works with 95% of what we need to bleed out. The Phoenix works great on hydrolic clutches. We see a lot with the performance cars such as Corvettes.

    I’ve had the Pheonix system for years and it pretty much just sits in the box. It works well and is a quality piece of equipment, but the pressure bleeder, vacuum bleeder, and the two-man bleeder are all used first. I bought it because they said it would bleed (older) Ranger clutch master cylinders… They lied!
