Period of
Product Use:
1 year
4 years
Products Used:
lpr set ups, volumizers, vff/hfv, and soliniod optimizers (tapeworm like contraptions)
Marker Setup: Ratpulse, vision, Adrenaline triggerframe, VFF, custom adrenaline thunder freak set, GP valve w/ lpr set-up, ND valve, short rat/ND bolt, sp derlin bolt pin, nd silk shot ram+rat hole ss hammer, rat halo low rise, Adrenaline gtg, 68/4.5k maxflo tank, and the most important part, the chrome on/off button. also 12v revi and halo b
Strengths: it is more comfortable, has the same effect as a vff/hvf
Weaknesses: expensive
Review: okay, first of, hsw is in the top 3 best impulse companies. so one would expect their products to be top notch and this is. there are two main reasons for getting this product (besides the chrome bling bling): better air flow, and comfort. i'll get to the air flow later. as far as feel goes, i think it's great. on the other hand my friends hate it (at least they wont touch that impusle). feel is in the eye of the beholder, or something like that. the air flow is great. it had the same effect as a voodoo full flow and a ned dezignz high flow verticle asa. also it has almost the same effect as an lpr set up, but at a higher psi and not external parts sticking out. Also since this is a whole front grip you need to have an on-gun max-flo set up or a max-flo air system tank. NOTE: Smart Parts stopped drilling the air transfer hold that connects the solenoid air passage to the valve from under the body. Because of this change you can NOT use a HFV or AHF or HSW HypAir Forgrip. Please make sure you check your Impulse body before ordering one of these parts. This part eliminates fsdo.
Conclusion: If you want a better looking impulse (and don't we all) and you have the correct model and you don't want an lpr, and you want the same effect as a vff, and you have a max-flo tank/on-gun set up, and you want a cool forgrip, and you want to be like me, and.. you should get this. this product will increase your fire rate. i give it a 9 because you have to have a max-flo tank or on-gun reg set up
9 out of 10

a gas thru grip cannot increas your ROF

this is not just a gas-thru grip. it seperates the solenoid air supply and the valve air supply (like a tapeworm), but also gives the solenoid and the valve seperate air sorce inlets so the valve cannot suck air away from the solenoid. thus you have no fsdo and a faster and more consistant impulse.
