Cyclone Ratchet and Lightning Rod
Strengths: Metal vs plastic stock = durability (my opinion)
Weaknesses: After roughly 10 cases the jewel bearing failed
Review: Worked as advertise. Allowed cyclone to feed smoother and at 300psi. At 325 I noticed cyclone skip feeds but otherwise worked when stock wouldnt not. Stock stopped at ~350 and started skipping at 400 even with 1/8 hose. Shoot a case and a half through it at the last scenario and no issues.

11/18/07 UPDATE

After roughly 10 cases the jewel bearing failed. The rod now collides with the ratchet and causes cyclone to missfeed. Reason for failure is unknow. Maybe due to high cyclic rates of e-trigger setup. Upon inspection, nothing was left of the jewel bearing besides metallic dust in the cyclone housing which mixed with the clyclone ratchet shaft and ate up the rachet teeth.

Overall item performed. However, it requires regular maintenance and inspection to verify proper operation
Conclusion: Pricey but works... requires regular maintenance and inspection to verify jewel bearing has not failed.

Why are you adjusting your psi? Just wondering.
