was not very consistant.
I bought this reg to test it out. I was not impressed. While the reg worked ok. It did not perform as well as other in lines I have used. The reg would not recharge as fast as other regs that I have used. There was about a 3 second delay before full recharge. It was a noticeable decrease in performance from most of the other in regs I have used.
I took the reg apart, lubed it and still the same. I switched the Guage on it... still the same. I finally put the Centerflag reg back on... and recharge was almost instantaneous. The reg never crept past set pressure. So that was good.
This reg did not work well for me. I have found much better at this price. Perhaps I expected too much from it.
To me it sounds like you didn't give the reg enough time to break in. I had some problems at first with both my Alias and Ripper regs. Once they were broken in though I have had no problems. Both Torpedo regs can keep up with both my Intimidators with little to no shoot down.
I just recently got my 2k5 timmy and I think this reg works great. When I was chronoing my gun last Sunday, I shot 265 with 3 straight balls, so I think its pretty good. I can also rip 16 bps and not worry about shootdown. So I guess you either got a lemon or you didn't break it in because i'm very happy with mine.
