I currently use a picnic tap but It is kind of cheap and drips a bit. Does anyone have any opinions on those chrome faucets that thread on to the out quick connect? It would seem like you would have problems with foaming...

yes, they look good but foam alot unless you turn the pressure way down.

then again, so do picnic taps.

picnic taps with the correct amount of line are fine

they look nicer, impress your guests (if you care)

I use both, the performance is about the same as a short-tube picnic tap, you must be careful the chrome tap is easily turned-on
You remember that foul evening when you heard the banshees howl
There was lousy drunken bastards singing 'Billy is in the bowl'
They took you up to midnight mass and left you in the lurch
So you dropped a button in the plate and spewed up in the church

I've used both. The Chrome is nice but does need the pressure turned down. To get hoest tho, a cobra tap is much more compact and handy. The chrome is kinda bulky. If I am camping, i used the cobra tap. If im at a picnic, I use the chrome.

Cheers,

One thing that I like about the chrome taps is that virtually everyone can operate one without any problems. With cobra taps 75+% of people want to partially depress the tap thus creating the equivalent of whipped cream. If you set the serving pressure right with a chrome tap, you are generally trouble free.
