Review: When i first used the FX, i was amazed how well it handled. It shot very accurate and very air efficient. I think I went though about 6 or 7 pods before filling my tank with air. That was the first time. Every time I use the FX, it always has paint breaks in the barrel. I had used an overbore barrel and still breaking paint. I did a little research and found the stock detents were to stiff. It was recommended that i only use 1 detent. (Note: the FX comes with 2 type of detents. A stem type and a bump type.) I have used combination types of detents and I still have breaks in the barrel. My FPS is set around 270. I may have to set it to around 260 - 250. Everyone that I know that have a FX, shoots flawless. I think I am just cursed. I even called DP Cust Care (LOVE THEM), and they had no idea how to fix nor did they offer any recommendations. The only thing i haven't changed is the loader. I did hear that the Halo type loader put more pressure on the paint than Dye rotors for example. I have ordered a TechT hush bolt that will come with new softer detents. Ill add update post with the outcome. The feedneck is great but for the Invert Too loader that I am using, it doesn't grip. My F7 however does. I think it may have something to do with the grooves that are on the FX. Nothing a little over tightening won't fix.
Does any have suggestions?
Conclusion: The FX is a really nice marker comparing to other high end markers. The cost is very reasonable. When the FX shoot good, it shoots great. If it wasn't for all the paint breaks I have had, this marker is top notch. Has a very consistent regulator. Chrono has never been an issue.
