Default ITT: handheld tire inflator/pressure gauge

Pretty simple question:
I want a tire inflator that connects to my compressor to air up the tires that also has pressure gauge, one of those "two in one" setups, that:
1) is durable
2) is accurate
3) easy to use and easy to read

For years I've been using some cheap-o HF $3 inflator, and some other cheap-o HF gauge. The inflator finally broke, and I went to HF and picked up what I'm talking about, 2-in-1 setup, and it's cheap and it works, but the morans that designed it put a 100psi gauge on it, with the display so small and hard to read you literally need a magnifying glass. This is really annoying.

So I want one that's not super spensive but also not stupidly designed like the HF unit. Been googling around, but curious: What do the broz use?

yeah I like that one except for the tiny dial with half the numbers missing, so 30psi would require squinting at it which was my main gripe with the HF units

Fair enough, I just have an unjustified fear of cheap digital units. That and I like the immediate response of analogs.

I'm curious as to what the "real racers" here use.
