Review: i got this ram because my stock ram bent. when i went to the course i was talking to some experienced players and they all told i should have gotten the STO. well they were right. i ended up having to go home early because my ram kept sticking. even when i got it out if its package and was just messing aorund with it it would stick. HOWEVER when it did work i noticed better air efficiency, higher ROF, and smoothness.
i would think maybe i just got a lemon, but with all the other crappy reviews, i think DYE just got lazy and put out a crappy product. i shoulda read the other reviews before i got this. anyways, i sent my gun back to system X and they told me my ram was basically history, and even if it wasn't, they can't do service on upgrades of another company.but system x does have a very friendly staff and customer support. DYE DOESNT.
Conclusion: dont get it, i havent tried an STO and the only other ram that has worked for me is the System X, but i dont think you can buy those seperate. all i can do for a reccomendation is say read the reviews and find the one with the highest rating.
6 out of 10

You are ridiculous. You don't know how ot install a ram? You just screw it on! That's all you do! You screw it on and screw on the pump arm and put the hoses on. Anyways the sto is good but the belsales 44 magnum is the best ram on the market. Take a look at that if you want the best of the best.

Quality control on the Dye Flow ram seems to have been rather patchy. I have one that is very smooth, with no sticking (though not as smooth as the 44 Mag or Nexus ram, or the SMC rams for that matter). However, the threaded end of the ram shaft was poorly cut and I couldn't screw the pump arm on more than a turn. I trimmed off the end of the shaft but still couldn't get the pump arm on. In the end I had to re-cut the thread. Other than that, mine has been fine. You can be lucky and get good ones (or at least one that can be fixed easily), or you may be unlucky and get a bad one. To avoid the possibility of disappointment, it is probably best to look elsewhere. There are probably few of these left on the market anyway.
