Post Upgrades

Now, most upgrades for your impulse are good right? True. More and more upgrades on your impulse are even better, right? True. Now the more you upgrade you gun the better it gets, right? True (I bet you think this is dumb, but just wait). Even though all of the above is definitely true, there is one huge popular misconception about upgrading. That is, many people believe (and this is a very common and understandable mistake) that even once you upgrade your gun more and more, making it better and better, the parts you put on it will still have the huge, "how could I have lived without this before," effect on the gun's performance. In other words, many believe that if they own a gun, like a Rat Jr. for example (which comes with a voodoo bolt), that if they buy an equalizer (the bolt), their performance will get much much better (their gunís performance will be better, but not that much better or even nearly as much as they believed, or were led to believe it would get). That is because people, like me, go around these forums telling people with stock impulse (or lightly upgraded impulses with no new bolt) to buy a new designz equalizer bolt because it is better than any other bolt. Even though this is true, they still expect to see the amazing results out of their setup+the equalizer bolt that one might see out of a stock impulse and an equalizer bolt (now I know the results are not than amazing, but the equalizer does work much much better than the stock bolt/the equalizer to stock bolt ratio is much more than the equalizer to voodoo bolt ratio).

-Think of it in numbers, first we rate the bolt,
-Equalizer=10,
-Stock=1,
-Voodoo=8,
-Now put them into ratios,
Equalizer over stock = 10/1 = 10
Equalizer over voodoo = 10/8 = 1.25
-Now you mathematically see that the performance difference between the equalizer and stock is much higher than the performance difference between the equalizer and voodoo, which tells you that there is a huge improvement when upgrading from a stock to equalizer, but less of an increase in performance when up grading from a voodoo to equalizer.

Okay, Iíll give you time to digest that...

So what Iím saying is that people need to realize that once you have a super hooked up impulse, something like a new valve or different bolt or bolt pin won't increase their gun's performance as if they only owned a ďpoor man's pulseĒ and bought the same part.

Again, in other words, the more you upgrade, the harder it becomes to get your gun to work noticeably better after each successive upgrade. I hope everyone who reads this understands what Iím trying to say, and it really isn't that big of an issue, just something I would like all of you good people to be aware of.

this is true too, there are some parts, that when put onto certain gun setups, make the gun work worse than before they were installed. for example, if you want to install a tapeworm (because you have heard so many good things about them) on your impulse, yet you already have an lpr setup on it, it would make the gun work worse, not to mention it would be imossible to installed a tapeworm on an impulse with an lpr, than before. it is hard for me to tell you all the different 'upgrades' that would make you impulse preform poorly because some parts will on some setups, yet those same parts will normally work great on other setups-which means if some one asks me if a certain upgrade is a good idea for their gun setup i will be able to answer them though because it is a specific case.

don't let all this get to your head though, remember, upgrades are good and it is very hard to find an upgrade that will truely hurt your gun's preformance.

Definitely by typing in correct paragraphs, setting up your lists better, etc. Hard to explain, but huge clumped paragraphs kill the eyes

Wow, you are like the master of the impulse.

I get that the equalizer is the best bolt now.

well, around 1200 works well, but you can get good performance with any internal wieght as long as the wieght is centered on the hammer.
