Weaknesses: Installation.
Review: This is a very simple product that is a MUST if you are trying to shoot above 15bps. It performs exactly as advertised and increases the upper cap on the Cyclone cycle feed rate to 22bps. I use a Rampage board, so for me, it is a necessity. Even though the QEV allows for up to 22bps operation, I keep my board at 20bps, just to be sure I don't chop anything.

I agree with others that the QEV does its job well, and consistently. I don't worry about it breaking since it is solid metal, and the macro-line hose is much shorter and less vulnerable than the stock line. I also agree that installation could have been made easier, but they give you like 6" of macro-line, so I don't see how you could go through that much and still not get it right.

A couple of reviews state that it just plain didn't work; that it made the Cyclone not cycle. I think I may know why. The QEV is offered in both HP and LP models. I'm guessing they may have accidentally bought an HP model (800-900psi operating pressure) but were using LP (300-400psi) compressed air and the LPK. Therefore, the standard QEV (HP) would not cycle, since there just wasn't be enough pressure. This is such a simple, basic part, that I think this may be the best explanation as to why it didn't work for some people.
Conclusion: Very solid and well-put-together, installation wasn't really bad, I just think Palmers could have been a little more courteous to its customers and sent the part assembled.
Overall, if you have an E-Grip, even just a stock E-Grip, buy the QEV.

Yeh i haven't used this product yet however i have experienced less cycling and less fps using HPA. You think its maybe because the X7 (A5 clone) is made to function on High Pressures rather than low? If so you think i can install the Low Pressure version of this product and it will still work w/ Co2?
