Palmer Male Stabilizer
Rufus Dawg Bolt and Power Tube
Flatline
Palmer Cyclone QEV
RT and Cyclone 1/8" ID Hoses
PMI 4500 88 Tank
Tipmman LPK
Cyclone Ratchet and Lightning Rod
Strengths: Improved Chrono Accuracy, lower report and recoil, increased flatline accuracy
Weaknesses: Price. Degrades RT rate of fire
Review: Upon first inspection the kit is pretty stratight fwd. The valve body machining was not clean and it required some deburring and cleaning up of sharp hard edges. nstallation is simple straight fwd. Upon firing, first impressions were lower recoil and report. However, RT rof has been degraded and sweet spot is almost non existance during action conditions. Hard to find it even when using the 1/8 hoses. This setup must be a sweetheart when using an e grip.

Operational views: WHen couple with the Palmers req the shoot to shoot consistancy over the chrono has been nothing short of fantastic. It has aweaken up my flatline barrel to the point were I can accurately hit targets at ranges were they can not engage me. Recoil has also been reduce and this also helps the use of the flatline.

There have been a few issues with the cyclone skipping at but overall is has worked well. I believe part of this is the use of the RT.

Update -

Replaced RT with an E trigger. The intermitent cyclone feed issue has gone away. NO issues at all with performance or wear. Currently have run about 6 cases and the system is operating as new.

Conclusion: Over all decent product. Kinda bulky with all the fitting below the marker frame but it works. Would recommend if you are looking for improved flatline performance.

Would not recommend if using an RT system on HPA. Instead highly consider this mod if running the std trigger or an e trigger on HPA.
