Review: Pros:
After letting it break in over a period of 4 cases my angel now shoots +/-2 over a big red chrono. But when I first put it in I was a tad worried just like the Other user. After first putting it in i was getting +/-8 with a decent bore/paint match. It just needs time to be broken in.

The stock LPR doesn't stay at 60psi when the input pressure changes. So as input pressure goes up, so does the LPR. Not drastically, but I want it to stay where I set it. The JDS does exactly that. Once its set to 60 it stays there until you change it or there isn't 60psi entering the gun.

Easy to adjust. I was never really one to complain about adjusting the stock lpr because it was typically a one time thing. But now with the JDS I can mess with it to try to get the smoothest kick free shot that is still efficient.

Cons:
Looks... Its kinda ugly, but I'm definitely not a form over function guy, so its not a problem.

Removal is a pain, if you really wrench it in there have fun taking the time to carefully remove the assembly from the gun. It would be nice if there was some sort of locking grub screw to keep it together. Its not impossible to remove it, just difficult.

No gauge. With this LPR you can't use the gauge from the WDP tool kit. But there is a solution. A user by the name of BoostMonkey on AOG makes a gauge that works with any LPR for angels. It screws into the back of the gun where the air passage is plugged (the one that takes LP air to the noid). The gauge fixes the guesstimation of setting this LPR.
Conclusion: Awesome performance without any glaring weaknesses. The weaknesses are mostly just nit picky stuff. Excellent product which I recommend to anyone with an angel that wants real consistency.

Yeah, BM does make a good and very useful product. I didn't realize how much it was necessary until I got one.

For the record, my JDS set at 35 psi keeps up with my unlimited ramp with zero shootdown. How's that for awesome? (I have Evolve, before you ask)
