The Conquest is definitely one of the top of the line air systems, it ranks with the Max Flo and AIR in the upper echelon of high-performance regs. Furthermore, the Conquest has several advantages over many of the other adjustable, low-pressure regs out there. Firstly, it's very small and lightweight, everything it fit into a neat package, and other companies like Smart Parts have just began to make smaller regs whereas Mac Dev has been doing it for awhile. The Conquest has an extremely high flow; with a fast gun like the Angel I experience no shoot down and amazingly consistent velocities with proper paint/bore match. The reg is adjustable up to 650 psi, and is optimized for lower pressure markers, like Impulses, Matrices and the new Angels (Speed's, A4's, Fly's) that all have volumizers to reduce their pressure. The only things that may need improvement are the looks and the on/off. The on/off works fine and maintenance through the adjustment knob and on/off piece is easy, but when gassing up your marker, and running pressures over 400 psi, pressing down the on/off lever can be tedious and requires some force. Anyone can do it, it just can be annoying. The looks of the Conquest are somewhat dull there is no fancy milling or cuts and is a rather straight forward, performance machine. The muscle car of the paintball regulator world. No frills
Overall, I am extremely impressed with this product. It's high flow, adjustable to 650 psi, great consistency and high quality parts make it one of the top of the line systems today. It's small size and light weight ensure that no more useless weight is added to your marker platform. I give it a 9, only because the on/off is cumbersome. Other then that, it is simply one of the best, I highly recommend this product!
