    sure..
    you can see the difference of the CLICK from the Espro (very smoth) to the Macap (gunshot).
    thats all..

    if I was going to buy a "click" tamper and see this video Id go for the Espro..
    the Macap is big, uncomfortable, and the click is more like a !!!BANG!!!! .
    The Espro is very smooth and also feels great in your hands, is a bit heavier than the Macap and have a great look.

    The distance the Macap travels upon clicking makes me wonder what the impact pressure would be. My guess would at least 2 or 3 times the target pressure.

    And my second wonder is whether it actually makes any difference.

    the Macap tamper scares me a little.
