Review: This regulator looks very nice, has a great air flow and I've never had any leaks with it.

Its also great because it comes with an S-Rail, which allows you to put your tank about a quarter inch down and a quarter inch out, making it in the perfect position for snap shooting.

The 1/4 knob is nice and easy to turn

The only reason why I don't like this regulator is because of the strange threads that both it and the tank use. I understand that it's so it's TSA compatabile for trips on an airplane, but I don't like it because my tank is a little small (47ci) and I can't use another tank without having to take off the max flo micro and put a different on/off ASA right on the field in between games. Because the tank is open, you can't have a backup to just screw right in unless you buy a new ASA and a regular fixed tank for you're gun, and then you have to screw it on between games. Plus, i don't recommend screwing the tank on and off too much because the threads seem to strip really easily and are very fine and thin.
Conclusion: Besides the fact of the different TSA compatabile setup that, in my opinion, I don't like, this is a great regulator, but I don't recommend it with the 47ci tank unless you either don't shoot that much or don't mind missing a few games because you have to keep running back and forth between the air fill station and the field.

I gave this a 9 because of the whole different thread thing
