Experience:

Products Used:
Tried a few cockers, and my buddy's angel. This kit quieted the gun down a lot.
Marker Setup: Tippmann Custom 98
Low Pressure Kit
Sucky Pure Energy regulator
Flatline (duh)
38cu, 3000PSI solid steel HPA tank.
Strengths: Lower ball breakage
More shots per tank
Weaknesses: Cost, the T-adapter was blocked by pipe, the kit wasn't bent right.
Review: When I got the LP kit for my gun, I had to do 3 things which I shouldn't have had to in order to make it work.

First I had to drill out the T adapter where the volumizer is, then I had to bend the damned regulator area a bit, they were off on the bend by 1/8th inches. After all that, the plastic cover you're supposed to put over the slot where the old cocking handle, would pinch the power tube, and you couldn't get the fscking gun to close up. I had to overtighten, file down, and repeat for half an hour to get the damned rivit looking nuts to stop touching the tube.

Conclusion: Tippmann should beat the quality control guys for failing to check their products. How hard is it to attach a HPA line to the T-adapter at 800 PSI, and checking the flow rate after the volumizer? Or even better, beat the machinists too for failing to notice excess piping in the T-adapter.

A great product, and it makes my flatline the most consistent gun on the field, every single time. They're very lucky that I think that no product is perfect, and if I don't have to do something TO the product, I'm sad.

It costs to much for what it is. $70 would be great.
