Jungle Labs test strips

I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with this brand of test strips. I bought the one that tests for Ph, KH, GH, Ammonia, and Nitrate. I didn't have anything to compare my results against until the other day when I got my new PH controller. Now I find that the ph controller after calibration give a reading of 7.7 or so (I actually haven't started my pressurized CO2 yet~Gotta wait till Monday to get the tank) while the test stips read much closer to 7.0. This just makes me wonder if all my results are skewed. Just curious if anyone else has an opinion on this test. Also what brand kit do you recommend to test with. Thanks for opinions and suggestions.

I think they are fine if you just need a rough idea of your water parameters.

I often use them myself, but when I need more accuracy I use the aquarium pharm. test kits.

Thanks for the reply. That's kinda what I have gotten out of em. I bought some nicer tests to use for precise measurement and use the strips for check-ups! Thank
