Most accurate/delicate/fine AIR VALVE ?

Hello,
I am controlling the air flow inline using the air valve, but mine is made by plastic and very difficult to adjust the amount of air. Can you tell me your experience of using the better valve, maybe the one made by brass?
Thanks.

Is this for an air pump or a skimmer? Go for the brass one no matter what it is for IMO, as I find the plastic ones that come with air pumps and skimmers cheap.

Thanks!

Thank you for your prompt reply and kind words! I also thought that the brass one is better - do you have any specific info/name of the product/URL address you recommend? Again, thank you for your time in advance.

Just go to your local hardware store or home depot or lowes and they will have one. Take A piece of airline with you to make sure you get the right fitting.

Got it

Oh, I did not come up with the idea going to hardware stores! I was thinking only aquarium shops and websites - I will go to lowes tomorrow and check if they have it. Thank again!
