While the Nalanda Quick-Fill and Vilano Smart look remarkably alike, they have several important distinctions. The latter is smaller and less expensive than the former, but it can't reach the same PSI level as the Nalanda. Both are quality options; it's just a matter of how much pressure you need for your particular board.
The two SeaMax models are similar as well, but the SUP20D is basically a luxury version of the SUP20S. It's more powerful, more durable — and more expensive. Is it worth it? We certainly think so, but if you only take your craft out once or twice a year, the extra performance might not be worth the added cost.
The Tower Premium has everything we looked for in a pump, including an easy-to-use knob, accurate pressure gauge, and multiple power source options. Throw in the fact that the hose won't tangle up on you and it can hit 25 PSI, and it was a no-brainer choice for the top spot.
