Model/Year: 2019

Pros: Very affordable these days

Cons: Multi step process... getting the bubbles out of the fluid before bleeding the lines is key to success.

Recommendation: YouTube instructions and this kit. Easy. Great results.

Pros: Save you money DIY

Cons: $$$

Recommendation: It's rathe expensive for what you get. If you work on your own equipment and own avid brakes, it's a must to own. I struggled to get all the air out and ended up having to bleed front and rear 3 times. Once you figure it out, works well.

Pros: Easy once you figure out how to do it.

Cons: Tubing gets pinched easily.
degassing can give you issues, because the syringes flex a little and allow air to get by the plunder. The pro kit does not do this.

Recommendation: Once you know how to bleed Avid brakes they are easy. The kit itself is not really the issue, but having to de-gas the fluid is a pain in the ass. Make sure that when you store the kit you un-clip the little red clips on the tubing or you will permanently pinch the tubing. If this does happen go and buy a package of aquarium tubing from Walmart of a couple buck and your set for years. I have found that hard plastic of the pro model holds up a little better then the regular bleed kit but other then that not worth the extra money.
