Default help with bubble counters

my cheapo plastic red sea bubble counter finally failed, releasing the entire contents of my CO2 tank into my living room. I have attempted to replace it with metal one. I just had an experience with one I got off amazon.com. I had to buy a matching throttle valve in order to even hook it to my system. Once installed, nothing. No bubbles, no flow. I jacked up the working pressure to 40 psi at which it seemed to begin to want to work, but I did not go any further in fer of rupturing a silicon tube.
I figured this thing had an internal check valve the was spring mounted at a fairly high tension. May require a really high psi in order to make it actuate properly. I ended up returning the product in hopes that I will have better results with something else.
My question here is, what would be a good bubble counter I can get that will actually work. It can be screwed in or attached via tubing, since now I can do both with the new throttle valve I am now stuck with.
