It's easy to adjust
Very compact if that's what your looking for
Seems to not get along well with Co2!
ours is freezing!
I had problems initially with this due to the fact that (as many pointed out, and thank you for your help), I was running a remote with an antisiphon installed on the tank (DOH). But, after finding this out, I quickly went to JUST the remote and the reg did a lot better. However it still has issues with Co2 under rapid fire.
When I put an HPA bottle on it works just fine. So if you plan on running HPA then this is a very good reg. I've read in a few places that they use MacDev's design or are contracted through them somehow....probably just scuttlebutt. But this one is very consistant when using HPA.
So, if your planning to run HPA or Nitro I'd say to pick this one up. It is very easy to adjust and seems to be constructed very well to boot. I'd say to look at a Bob Long Torpedo reg if you are on Co2 as I've heard they handle it well or even better, a Palmer Stabilizer which is the best I've found so far for C02. I've heard rumors that it's made on MacDev's tools but don't quote me as it's just rumor *cough*Pevs*cough* ; ) I would reccomend this product to those using HPA.
Though, I have seen that the longer units sport some kind of oddball thread situation on their bottom port. I'm getting one soon (direct trade for this short one), so I guess I'll find out what that's all about soon enough.
8 out of 10

The guy that said he uses a remote and antisiphon is an idiot. An antisiphon is a tube that comes off your valve and up slightly so you dont get liquid going into your vave and going to the gun. When you hold the tank vertically what happens? Liquid flows to the bottom and starts to raise up. Then that antisiphon acts as a straw and picks up liquid. No wonder it didnt work :.
The real problem is CO2. A couple things you should never use with just CO2; Inline or bottomline regulators without expansions chambers. Macro line (I always laugh when 20 oz of CO2 blow out). I wish people would realize the limitations of CO2 before their guns or themselves are broken. HPA is the way to go.
Funny, seeing as Co2 was the industry standard for years and years and years before HPA hit the market. If you see any blow-outs it isn't the fault of the Co2, it's the stupid users, I've used macroline on Co2 for years and it works fine. Blowouts are a result of idiots not knowing how to properly install the line into the fittings. If it's good enough for Doc Nickle and Glen Palmer, then it's good enough for me. :)

Though allot of people say it shouldn't be run on CO2 it can. I have checked the CP website and see nothing about using it with air only, so unless the manual has something in it (if it comes with one, I don't know). Giving it an 8/10 because it doesn't work well with your air source seems reasonable to me, as the company that makes it did not inform him of the issue. Besides, its 8/10. If he gave it a 3 or something you'd have the right to blast him.
you may have your reg set to high and you are drawing too much liquid CO2 into your gun this why you are freezing up. Also another thing is when you enter rapid firing with CO2 the CO2 has much less time to turn from liquid to gas state and starts entering your gun. the only way you can aviod all of this is to go HPA. CP regs aren't designed for CO2
