SMC AS-2200 needle valve

Anyone ever used this valve? Is it any good?

Also I need suggestions for a cheap but good check valve.

So far the cheapest and best I've used are the Fabco NV 55-18, they are around $34 each but you may fine some second hand for cheaper.

When I google that brand not a lot comes up except shopping options, looks like you can get brand new ones for around $12.50. Which kinda leads me to believe they aren't going to be very easy to adjust. They may hold an adjustment but getting to to the point you want may prove a challenge.
