Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Similar
Products Used:
-standard Air America gauges
Marker Setup: 99' Evolution
14" Freak Barrel(Freak Front, Aluminum Back)
45ci 4500psi Apocalypse 2k
12v Revolution
Black Ice regulator
Strengths: -they look really good (especially if you have other Dye products on your gun to match it with)
-very compact (Can't bend, snap or snag like a full size gauge)
Weaknesses: -the insert behind the needle shifts during play, causing you to blindly guess at what the gauge really reads
-due to this serious design flaw, the only time this gauge is correct is when you first put it on your gun, or if later the insert magically vibrates back in place for a second or two
-after replacing it with my Air America gauge, I found it was inaccurate (but this could be due to the insert never being correctly aligned in the first place)
Conclusion: This thing didn't make it through two games before the insert had shifted 400psi. By the end of the day, according to this gauge, I was putting negative 600psi into my gun. The whole point of a gauge is to accurately tell you the tank pressure or line pressure. A fundamental function this gauge totally lacks. Unbelievable and unacceptable. Dye makes some kick ass products, so this comes as a real dissapointment. The only reason i am going to even give it a score is because it didn't leak and because it looked so sweet before it shifted.

okay i have the solution. I had the same problem in my torpedo. I have no idea where the gauges are setup on your guns but the reason the plate shifts is because the gauge is broken. If you run too much air through the gauge it will break it and thats how you know if its broken or not. I have tryed to contact dye and get a couple replacements but those people are rip offs. I called dozens of times and they all redirected me to customer service. Well for customer service they have a recording that says " hi this is Shante in the customer service department sorry im not in right now" after calling back a million times its become obvious that they dont have a customer service department. Thats why i hate those people and i would suggest buying a bob long gauge.
