In my system, everything that supplies gas has a male coupler and everything that receives gas has a female. My gas QD's have always been barbed because it was originally cheaper, but it was a bit of a pain. The addition of a female coupler on a short (4") piece of hose solved that problem. Everything just gets switched around as needed with these guys. I have a couple of short jumpers with the female coupler and a flare fitting on the other end to mate with a bev QD for when I want gas down the long tube. The Beergun has a female fitting, as does the rig I use to push beer from Better Bottles. I've made a Y splitter with a female IN and two male OUT couplers in case I need to carb an extra keg or for Beer gunning. I even have plans to add an in-line regulator so I can have two different pressures. The gas side is almost infinitely variable and I can make these changes in seconds without tools. I'd recommend you buy two packs of females because you'll find tons of uses for them and you'll always have more receivers than sources.Oh, and I've been using them since May of '06 and they've never leaked. I highly recommend them.
