Review: As part of going LP, i needed a new valve. At the time, money was uber tight, so this $15 little honey looked mighty fine for me.

After purchase and installation, i immedately noticed any/all recocking or veloctiy drop problems were gone. After i used my dremel tool to open up my bolt's flow port to match the valve's, FPS shot up dramatically, saving me tons of shots-per-tank.

Since i didnt have the funds to buy a nice plunger, i instead took the plunger out of my little brother's Piranha Eforce. These PMI plungers are shaved on both sides to offer twice the blowback flow as the stock valve. This would enable me to further save gas, and bring the stock 90% of gas per shot to recock the marker, down to around 60%. After installing a reg and air, that percentage is now hovering around 35-43%.

A stock valve is essentially a cylinder-prism with a + shaped set of holes drilled thru it. On the bottom of the valve the brass fittings secure the valve in place.
-On the bandit valve, rather than a + shaped drill, its a more upside down T shaped, with the upper portion being drilled very wide for super-high flow into the bolt (as you can see in the pbr pic).
Conclusion: I think, in both opinion and experience, that this is the best valve for the cost for any spyder or spyder clone.
