Review: Well where to start. This is hands down the best regulator out there. It looks very nice and it is so consistent. It has two gauges on it. One tells you the psi inside the tank and the other tells you how much pressure is going into your gun. I have a low pressure gun, so i bought a low pressure regulator. If you buy a low pressure reg than you get low pressure. If you buy high pressure, than you get high pressure and low pressure spring but if you need low pressure its going to be more consistant with the reg strictly made for low pressure than using a low pressure spring in a reg made for high pressure. This thing is very very consistent at the chrono. My field only allows 280 fps, but when i first aired it up i was shooting 390 so i had to lower it. When i got under the 300's i shot six 295's in a row, and thats fricken incredible. Then i got down to 277 and the reg usually never shoots up or down more than 2 fps which is very good. All you have to do to lower or raise your fps is turn the knob on the front in or out. its that easy. One cool thing that shows how low pressures this reg can run off of is the fact that you can screw the velocity knob way out for super low pressure output. I mean so low that you cannot shoot a paintball but you can pull the trigger and move the bolt. I like to do this when i am bored and i sit there and shoot the bolt all day probably tens of thousands of times and the guage barely moves thats really air efficient.Then you can use an allen wrench if you want to so you can prevent the knob from accidentally getting turned, but you dont have to do that if you dont want to so it requires no allen wrenches for chronoing unlike just about every other reg out there. It also never leaks just turn the on/off to the off position(pointing to the left)and you have no broblems. the on/off is an awesome feature.its super easy to connect to your gun. you use the screws it comes with and screw it in, then you use your macroline and connect it. for the price you would think this thing is high maintinence but it isnt. its really easy to care for. whenever you need to refill you turn it off and connect the air hose right to the reg. the most amazing thing about this reg is its ability to hold itself together when your running out of air(when you have like 200 or so psi left in the tank.) it keeps shooting consistent and doesnt drop off until the very last second when you have so little air that your that your gun cant shoot anything which isnt the regs also comes with spare a spare o-ring kit that costs you like 15 bucks online so thats another plus. Smart parts has been around for a long time and they know they're paintball products. this thing fricken rocks.
Conclusion: This is the best reg out there. the evil scion is nice but its more pricey and not as consistent. this inline reg blows the old one away. its lighter and looks beter. this thing is kind of expensive, but it is soooooo worth it. you cant go wrong with the max-flo. it is very simple to this thing!!!! check e-bay cause a lot of times you can get them new for way cheaper than other places.

The HP version of the Inline Max-Flo air system comes with both an HP and an LP spring as standard, but cannot run quite as low as the LP only version, nor does it have as high a flow rate at low pressures.
