Lezyne flip-thread chuck (or other replacement for Silca chuck)

I replaced the dismal chuck that came with my Zefal Husky HP with a Silca several years ago. But as of recently I can't seem to get along with the Silca either, despite changing the washer a couple of times. The force required to get it on and off is destroying my inner tubes. I don't know what's changed. So I'm in the market for a new head/chuck.

Hirame is too expensive.

Lezyne has consistently good reviews. If I buy a flip thread chuck with hose will I be able to get the head off that hose and onto the Zefal hose?

Other possibilities:If you have experience with these, especially with fitting them to hoses, I'd value your comments.
