Strengths: great for 100-200psi on hpa
Weaknesses: can't use co2, expensive
Review: first of all, i own the new version of the hyper in-line reg that is ment for 50-500psi on hpa guns. it is the same one that comes stock on their (dye's) matrixes. i was very worried when i bought my reg because my friend and co-workers told me their horror stories about the older version and how it basically sucked. the thing that helped my to buy this reg was when i got to play with a new dye matrix with this reg on it. at first i was suprised dye would put a reg like this on such a good gun that opperated at 180psi (i was under the impression it was the first model). well i gotta say, this reg is just as good as my sidewinder and much better than my max-flo, not to mention smaller. once i bought mine i put it on my gun and the fps suddenly went from +/- 8 to +/- 5. my god, then, i believe i got about 400 extra shots left in my tank after shooting after shooting 9 pods.
Conclusion: only buy this reg if you have a good, very good gun, because if it costs more than your gun (110$) it is not for you. i also would not want to put co2 through it, the olders ones didn't work well/at all with co2 and i don't see how they could have fixed that problem. the selling point about this reg for most (including myself) besides the consistancy and reliability is that it really looks good. my impulse looks much better with it than it did with my max-flo or sidewinder. also it is damn small and light. i was very suprised, but in a good way, and would recomend this to anyone (almost). i give it a nine out of ten because it costs more than almost any other reg, like 110$.

actually you can use c02, i sometimes hear of people playing with matrixs running on c02, though not a good idea. Some of these people are using dye matrixs, which come with the hyper 2, and it works fine. It is just not a good idea because, well c02 is c02...

well, you really shouldn't use co2, you could use an anti-syphoned co2 tank or a co2 tank with a remote, but you will be replacing a lot more o-rings...
