Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
More than 5 years
Products Used:
New Designz R.I.P. Valve
Stock Valve
Marker Setup: NYX Matrix (A.C.E.)........Nasty Impulse
Tadao with M3................Cricket V2
Halo B with RIP..............Halo B with RIP
MacDev 68/4500............Crossfire 68/4500
Scepter Barrel Kit...........Freak Kit
Strengths: Anodizing looks good - besides that, nothing - leaks like a sieve
Weaknesses: Leaks - manufacturing didn't allow for o-rings
Review: The main issue of the valve is that it leaks. The design requires the use of the stock valve spring to create pressure on the valve stem to close the valve during the firing cycle and keep it closed when not firing. The problem is that the pressure from the spring and from the input pressure from your regulator is not enough to fully seal the valve to prevent leakage down the barrel or in the breech. I have attempted a stiffer spring, lubing the valve stem, and adding o-rings to seal the valve - nothing worked. I am not a newb, and have worked on SP Impulses ever since they were first produced. I love the markers, but am not a fan of this product. I would suggest using the stock valve over this product or the ND RIP Valve....Function forgot their name in making this product. A product should work when purchased brand new, and this one just doesn't do that.

** Side Note ** I luckily have access to machinery tools, and added an o-ring groove in the side of the main valve plug. I used a size 14 (you could also use a 15) nubile 70 durometer o-ring to create a seal when the valve is closed. This worked in eliminating the leak.
Conclusion: Don't buy it. If you want an aftermarket valve, go with the ND RIP.
