Review: Well, I've installed this on my 'cocker, and I'm impressed. I chose the Orracle 3-way (identical to the CT 3-Way, except with a thumb adjuster) because it does something no other three way does: toolless adjustment. Meanwhile, it is very short and smooth, no argument about that.

Really, the Bomb or Hollowpoint may be slightly shorter or smoother, but this one is a great all around 3-way, and I no longer have to mess with my pain in the butt timing collar. I'm always switching out parts, changing to a Sniper II, and fiddling, so the spooler valve is a HUGE advantage.

I was originally concerned that bumping the 3-way may throw off the timing, but when it's gassed up it's almost too stiff to turn with your fingers. I just use an allen wrench. Really, it's just like a thumb adjustable LPR, if it gets knocked out fix it in five seconds.

You can even adjust your timing while on the field in a game (say your hammer lug slips a bit, and you cannot shoot at all. Twist - you're in the game again.)

The WGP Press forums had an article on how it has better flow than most 3-ring 3-ways due to larger holes in the spool and nipples, but I don't remember the details

All in all, it's very smooth, smoother than my used STO 3-way was, and a little shorter.
Conclusion: I think that the fact it's EASILY in the top 5 for smoothness, reliability, looks and throw length while doing something totally innovative and new makes this really one of a kind (two if you consider the identical CT)
