Products Used:
ACI high-flow valve -- didn't seal well and didn't really improve performance
Marker Setup: 98 Cocker w/AKALMP LP internals, Rock, quickswsitch, 45 grip, Vigilante/WGP reg on CO2, DYE alum. barrel
Strengths: Constructed out of steel -- no worries about wear/damage! Has sealed fine for me from day 1. Helped me get my input pressure down near 200psi (which helps reduce ball breaks), added significant efficiency (shots per cylinder). I run CO2 quite effectively with it. The set-screw is machined to a point for positive locating of the valve -- something a lot of other valves could really use!
Weaknesses: PRICE is the big one -- it's the most expensive cocker valve out there. It puts a higher demand on your gas system in terms of volume -- you need free-flowing regs and enlarged gas passages (not an issue on 98 cockers and later), and maybe even a volume cell ("valve extender"). Consistent pressure is also critical since pressure is used to set velocity with the Tornado, so if you're running CO2 like me, you need two regs. The stainless body doesn't deform at all when installing so the retainer nut came loose more often on me. I fixed this with the O-ringed nut (KAPP).
Conclusion: High quality and performance -- at a price.
