Leaking gauges, What boiler temp/press gauge do you recommend ?

The press on my old gauge was stuck so I replaced it with a Boshart Gauge (Home Deot). It started leaking into the gauge as soon as any pressure was applied. Cooled the system down and replaced it with a Watts gauge (lowes). It also started leaking once pressure was put on the system. Put the old gauge back in and no leak but the pressure is stuck .

Is there a specific brand of temp/press gauge that anyone has had consistent luck with ?

I don't know that these are any better or worse than what you've tried, but:

Winter Tridicators, Winter Pressure Gauges, Temperature Gauge Combination

Using a gauge that the mid point would be about the normal pressure the boiler runs at?
100% sure it's not leaking at the threads?
Near impossible to have two gauges leak inside the gauge unless the pressure was way above the pressure on the gauge causing the tube inside to burst.
