Product Use:

More than 5 years
Products Used:
Smart Parts Max Flo, WGP Regs, WDP mini Regs, Gladitor Regs, Sidewinder Regs, and the ANS regs.
Marker Setup: Palmer's Pursuit Shop (PPS) 2K2 Polished Center-feed Blazer with Nickel Highlights, Custom Blade Trigger, Nickel Male PPS Stabilizer Regulator, Nickel Female PPS Stabilizer Regulator with Nickel Ring Mount, 6 inch Stainless Steel Braided hose with quick disconnects, 12 inch Dual Vented Nickel Plated PPS Brass Barrel, Dye Sticky Grips, Empire Loader, 16 ounce stubby C02 tank with anti-siphon tube and on/off.
Strengths: The best reg for C02, it works great for compressed air as well. Dead Sexy.
Weaknesses: It usually takes 3000 shots or so to fully break in, price.
Review: I have used the male and female versions on all of my various markers from pump, semi, to electros and they have had nothing but excellent results. I use C02 as well as compressed air and there is little to no difference when using either gas. I highly suggest using a Rock Knob to keep the end from getting scratched. I usually only buy the cheapest paint possible so that I can save my money for cool upgrades such as this one. I always get + or - 5 fps over the chrono and I always try to chrono to keep my team from losing points for hot gun penalties. I have never spiked more than 7 fps. I have used the dual regulated setup(male and female) on my Blazer while using C02. During rapid fire situations I never have any shootdown and the consistency of the shots is absolutely amazing, even though the tank and regs have become blocks of ice. I usually only use a single regulator on most of my guns and the result is about the same. I loved this reg so much that I put it on my Angel and my range and consistency increased. I have never seen my Angel shoot 287fps 4 times in a row, I had to turn the chrono on and off just to see if it was malafunctioning. It wasn't. My Cocker toting buddies couldn't believe that my Angel had distance, accuracy, and Speed. I have used about every reg on the market and none of them can even come close to this one as far as performance, durability, and ease of use. I have never spiked over the chrony especially during the many tournaments I have attended.
Conclusion: I love this reg, in fact I own 7 of them and I have them placed on all of my markers. It simply outperformes every other reg on the market that I have used. It comes with a lifetime warranty from Palmer's, a company that stands behind their products and they are established as one of the best in the Paintball community. I would give it an 11 if they could drop the price down to $50 but you get what you pay for. Remember, quality only hurts once.

what do you mean when you '' break in a regulator''?

use it so it works with your setup...its kinda hard to discribe.

basically when the spring loosen up a little to the point when they wont loosen anymore therefore more consistant. Takes a few cases. you can try dry firing during the lunch break or an hour before the field close so you can dry fire. Dry fire about 10k worth of shots

Hi there, I have a 2004 Piranha R6 and it isn't the standard asa. If I want to put a standard threaded regulator I would need a vertical adapter. I was looking at these and i noticed some of them have the threads as small as a hose, I guess it's 1/8". I was wondering if this would fit on my Piranha r6. Are there any regulators or expansion chambers that are good but will fit without a vertical adaptor that makes it into the male threads?

hey i got a tippmann custom pro..... with co2 would the stabilizer work with this?? my co2 is anti siphoned

I got my palmers stabilizer, using co2 without an anti-siphon tube. The manual states this regulator takes about 2,000-3,000 shots to break in. I just barely shot 3,000 paintballs through it and althoug I'm using co2 with an anti-siphon I'm getting +5/-5 fps consistenly. One time two shots were +1. It's very consistent.

Yes, the stabilizer works very well with co2.

how well does this thing work with HPA on a 98 custom?

would this also work with an expansion chamber?

i am thinking what to get at some point, this or an ex-chamber, if not both if they work together.
