Strengths: Will help to increase the rof of your marker and help to be more efficient.
Weaknesses: There are a few problems I encountered while installing my nexus kit. see below.
Review: So over all this is a great kit and i would recommend it to anyone, although you may just want to purchase the parts separately since some of them wont always work.

Dart bolt and pin- This is an excellent bolt only second to 3ds bolt made by shooter.

Ram w/qevs- This ram is so smooth and with the qevs your rof will leap up.

Valve- I could not get this thing to work in my marker, no matter what i did i could not stop a huge amount of air from leaking so i switched back to my old kapp valve.

Rex dialer- this thing is so lame, not the concept mind you just the execution. The problems are two fold, one when i put it in my marker the longer beavertail screw they provide you with would not screw in, this is because the threads in the marker and the threads in the rex dialer are of different height so the screw will go into one or the other but will not match up when combined. Talking to N. Truter of planet eclipse he told me that you should carefully drill out the threads on your marker so the screw will go directly into the rex.... WHAT???? you want me to drill out the threads on my uber expensive marker so that your 30$ piece of non-matching metal can work, i cant believe that is their fix for this problem. Problem two is that the rex dialer would not even fit down the chamber of my friends 03' outkast, now were talking about two wgp made bodies, wgp the people who make cockers, why wouldn't a cocker part fit into a cocker body? This is the worst part of the nexus kit. I put my old IVG back in and am now happy.
Conclusion: over all this is a great kit but there are some problems with it. I don't know why other reviewers haven't had problems with it maybe its that they don't want to tarnish a great name or they lucked out and didn't have any problems.. but the problems do arise on occasion because ive talked to other who have the same thing happen. I would recommend getting this especially if you are going to an eblade.

You cannot really blame Eclipse (or Belsales, the people who actually make these parts) for the fact that the threads do not line up from the body to the velocity adjuster. The only way this would work is if they threaded each one to match an individual body. No two threads are going to line up even on parts made by the same manufacturer, let alone different manufacturers. You'll find the same with WGPs own parts (try taking apart a few different Black Magic or Ergo regs and swap the end caps over - the inlet ports will end up pointing at different angles because the threads start at a different place on each part).

As for the fit of the velocity adjuster, you say it fitted your body, but not your mates. It seems to me that the problem is not with the hammer kit, but that the threads are a different depth on each body. So that inconsistency is occurring at WGP, not at Belsales. Don't get me wrong I love WGP (I own eight Autocockers), but their threads are sometimes atrocious.

I admit that I had some of the same issues with the valve leaking right off the bat. Turns out that it was over oiled, and so it would not set right. So I tore it apart and put it back in, and problem was solved. It was not a Planet problem.

My biggest problem with the rex dialer screw is that it is not meant to accomodate a beavertail. I cannot find a longer screw that is not too long now. So I live without a beavertail. Still doesn't mean that I had a performabce drop. It dramatically changed my markers performance, and I am am very happy with it.

If im not mistaken belsales just sold their design patent to eclipse. The only component that besales makes is the nexus or magnum 44 ram.
