Products Used:
Stock Ram, it's heavier.
Marker Setup: I shoot a 2K5'd GZ, Excalibur, FL Viking, Texas Storm, Ripper, Ripper 2 and Ripper 3 Intimidators. I run a Halo or an Empire Reloader B (and now a Pulse) with a PMI Pure Energy or Crossfire Tank.
Strengths: The lightweight, low recoil effect of having a lighter, part delrin ram.
Weaknesses: Tinkering required to ensure the valve and regs are set correctly.
Review: I've used the stock ram in my intimidators for the last 5 years. I've gotten to tinkering over the winter and picked up a Kapp Thumper ram for $10. After some manipulation of the valve spring and some adjustments to the LPR, the ram works as advertised. I've been able to drop my LPR pressure a bit and the light ram has led to a smoother cycle with less recoil/kick in the marker. While there's certainly some room for more tinkering it's certainly a great product for the price I paid. KAPP is now out of business which means that the only way to get these Ram's is BST in used condition. They work well with both the older style adjustable ram caps and you can remove the ram bumper and use them with the Hybrid Bumperless style ram caps as well.
Conclusion: A pretty decent upgrade over the stock marker, however it's not for people who don't know how to modify their valve with a lighter spring.
Rating:
