Slide check doesn't work in arid climates
Review: The slide check worked for about two months and then stopped feeding air to my marker. As far as I can tell... the slide check does not like dry climates (such as Colorado) as it relies on two sliding o-rings to channel air into the marker from the remote (I guess they don't do the job in this climate). It wasn't isolated to my marker either, as a friend bought one as well. We ended up having to remove the slide check and just use the remotes. Also the orange knob is annoying as it constantly rubs against things during games (unscrewing itself). If you tighten it down then it compresses the pin valve in your air soure (cutting off air as well).
Conclusion: Though they are well made... I was not impressed by this remote line.
