Strengths: This valve is amazing! I was actually going to my local shop to get a rat 3:16 put in it since the old owner told me the valve was still stock and my friend's autococker has one in there. When the shop guy went to put in the new valve he came out with a surprise for me, turns out there was already an AKALMP tornado in there. Great for me i guess. I can get around 600+ shots out of my 48cu 3000psi which is really good since its only supposed to get around 450 for normal guns. I'm also running very low pressure which is also supposed to hurt effiency if its lower than 300 psi.....well guess what i run 225 psi at 295fps (i know, i know this velocity is damn high but my gun's so consistant it will never go over 300). Shockers that run at around 180psi can only get around 250 shots out of my tank. It also is super high flow so when i hammer my trigger i get no shoot down at all.
Weaknesses: PRICE is a factor, since its msrp is aroun 70 bucks. The rat 3:16, a similar valve but not as good is only around 40 bucks. I say for the most part if ur gun isn't as tricked out as mine u dont' really need the tornado but for amazing guns its a godsend. Also like any valve its a good idea to spend a bit of time tweaking with various resistance springs to get the best effiency, which is best left for an airsmith to do if ur clueless about cockers.
Conclusion: Its the best.....thats all there is to it. A bit expensive but no other is equal to this gas saving moster.
