AN fitting Brand?

I'm ready to buy some oil line AN fittings and hose from Summit. I would like to now what brand is the best for this application (Quality and ease of installing)? Will the house brand work OK or should I get another brand?

I've used Aeroquip, Earl's, and Goodridge. No quality issues with any of them. They all go together using the same procedure. I have noticed that Goodridge seems to be the easiest to assemble. Other than that, no differences. I would guess Russell, Summit and any of the others would be just as good.

earls hose seems to fray way to easy when I cut it. even with a die grinder. The russel hose cuts like glass with a die grinder. Im never buying earls hose again. Their fittings are fine tho.

lots of options here. I prefer the aeroquip parts myself. I am lucky that I have an aircraft surplus shop that has new surplus aeroquip parts. I like to buy the aircraft grade of braided line. it is easy to tell the motorsports grade and the aircraft grade. run your bare hand down the hose and the motorsports one will cut you with small exposed wire ends, the aircraft grade will be silky smooth and have a dull finish. I always use a cut off wheel instead of a saw. be sure to clean all hoses when finished. I also like to use the swivel ends instead of the fixed 90* , makes routing easier.

Earls worked just fine for me.
