I'm not sure if this is the best place to ask this on the forum but it's time to start changing out all the couplers on my stuff. I don't look forward to this becaust ther are clost to 500 pieces to be changed out but I know I will be happy once it is done. I should have done it as I collected pieces but alas I didn't. So my question is this? Other than Kadee are there any accurate, right sized couplers available?
I'm just not finding anything else but would like a really accurate coupler.

What Scale?
in 1:20.3 there is Accucraft
in 1:32 there is Ozark all metal coupler kit[/b]

I model in 1:20.3 and everything I have is Accucraft already, forgot I had already changed them.
The rest is 1:29th.

Couplers R a long term commitment, pick one with a long term track record...
We've all heard the old saw, "Here today, gone tomorrow", will probably apply
to most of the aftermarket couplers out there today... For that reason alone U
just about have to go with Kadee...

Aristocraft is coming out with a new coupler that will mate with kadee couplers. I don't know much about it but it will apparently look like this:



That's a kadee on the right, the new aristo coupler on the left. It's supposed to be available in the late Spring.
