Review: With a hyperstar front bolt in my setup (not a good combo for flatlines generally, due to a serious velocity drop) I had to make the speed back up somewhere...

This fit the bill... the hyperstar virtually eliminates ball chops (I've never EVER had one, even running a flatline... but maybe with this spring kit that might change... I've been using draxxus and WDP Victory balls and shot a 200 hopper load. I'm pretty pleased! (Once I sorted out my barrel rotation... my gun seems to shoot more consistently with the medium high (yellow) spring. Despite the change, I don't think I'll come across ball chopping though as along with the spring change came the cyclone and titanium hammer.

I didn't test under high fire rates as my stock trigger setup is... well... stock so every other aspect outruns it and my rate kinda bottlenecks there... once I pay attention to that and re-test under some heavier rates, I'll update...

However, I don't think I'll be needing any of the other springs that came with it... yellow one seems perfect : )
Conclusion: Perfect for me, but possibly not perfect for everyone...

A great addition for any velocity problems, but watch out for the red one... you have a selection of four which is great, but once you find the setup you like, I doubt you'll be needing the other ones.

All in all, a good upgrade. In value terms, average (I mean, look at what you're paying for) but for what it's helped on mine, the value is great.
