Currently looking into buying the Airbone zt-702 and it's looking like a great mini pump. Any of you guys used it?

The laws of physics can't be broken. I have no doubt that pump will get your tire up to 100 psi - eventually.

I'm not a big fan of not having a hoose of some sort, im very new to the hobby and i hold the unfounded opinion that such a design might cause me to put too much presure on the stem during inflation.

No hose might be OK for rubbery schrader valves, but for presta, and particularity tubeless presta valves, hoses are best. I haven't seen or found anything better than the Topeak RaceRocket line of minipumps with their captive freely rotating hoses. They have three versions of differing diameters. The HP version is skinniest and best if you run high pressure and don't have much arm/hand strength. The normal is good for most pumping road tires. The large version is good for high volume low pressure tires...mtb etc. The screws on chucks work very well on presta and schrader valves.

I'm no longer interested in pumps without built-in pressure guages.

Thanks guys but I took the dive. It would be for bail out cases anyways. I'll report as I get it. I have a heavy duty one for regular at home pumping.

Interesting to hear a review, but I agree with the hose remark. I think if I needed something that small, I'd just buy CO2.

I personally use a Topeak RoadMorphG. Easily gets my tires to 100PSI, well enough that when my old floor pump went out I just used the Topeak until I replaced it, and has a built in gauge. Can be found on sale for $25 occasionally.
