Michael is right.  If you have fish you value/treasure, a needle valve is 
an important part of a CO2 system.  Michael turned me around on this point 
about 2 years ago, I have had a great needle valve in my line ever 
since.  The only times it makes sense to omit one is if you have no 
valuable fish or if you check your system frequently (especially the 
cylinder pressure or weight).
