Those $5 ones can handle 200 psi, I know because I have actually tried it. That rating is just a safety margin.

Yeah the 90psi ones are just fine. they dont even reach 90 most the time because its just a quick burst of air.

Actually, if the blowgun is used as the pilot valve then it has to hold that pressure for relatively long periods of time. Also, when you post, try to not post on older topics. Bumping unnecessary threads is, well, unnecessary. :lol:
