Perlick with Flow Control

This sounds very nice for fine tuning flow and foam.  Has anyone tried one?

I have an old tap that was on a 50's era keg fridge that has the extra valve, I never knew what it was for.  Very interesting.

The old dude I bought it from, had to quit drinking and was selling his personal kegerator.  I only hope I live as long as he had.  The Fridge bi the dist just months from when I bought it, and the tap always leaked.  I still have it though.

I take it that this is the ultimate faucet?

I'm curious to know how these work. Anybody have one yet? It would seem that having a valve to slow the flow down would just create lots of foam, kind of like only opening the tap half-way. You should still need a balanced system, correct?

That was my first thought as well. Adjust your flow with line length and pressure.
