Review: I must say that Dye puts out markers that perform well. I've owned a PM7, SLG, and now this PMR. For both one-balling and laning, it is amazing how consistently their markers shoot.

I find that efficiency is a much talked about issue when it comes to spool valve markers, especially the PMR. With a Ninja 49/4500, a warm fill of 3500 psi, at 280-285 fps, and stock 25ms dwell, I shot a hopper and three pods with 1000 psi left over. Paint was WPN Elixir, sized at .687-.689. Barrel was a 12" .687 Lapco Auto Spirit (Big Shot). With a full 4500 fill, I think I could comfortably shoot a hopper and four pods.

For 5 man tournaments, four pods and a hopper are plenty. Even as a back player, I never shot more than 3 pods and a hopper.

Just a small note on barrel's, I bought my PMR SE with a 14" UL Barrel (.688). Switching to a 12" 687 Lapco Auto Spirit (Big Shot), I gained about 15 fps. That is why I recommend a small barrel kit.
Conclusion: For an mid-level tournament marker, I highly recommend a PMR. Just understand the efficiency limitations. If you plan on playing 7-man or big games, expect to carry a bigger tank. If a bigger tank is out of the question and you need to shoot a lot of paint, you may want to consider a different marker.
