No major, only thing is that the coil can twist up a bit
This remote works just like it is supposed to. It helps move ther tank form the back of the gun to your belt back sitting by your butt. The quick disconnect works perfectly, just make sure you turn the on/off valve to off first or you will either have a VERY hard time getting it off, and when you do if you are using CO2 you freeze a finger or two off! The only weakness i can see for this remote is, like any coil of well amost anything, it can twist up every now and then but only where it take about one twist to undo it. If you are cinfused as to what I mean by "twisting up" it'd like what happens to a coiled phone cored. And as for price, it would be nice if this sight allowed us to update the product info becase It still says 40 bucks, but I got mine for only 20 dollars.
God product, works like it's supposed to. Neat to use, I wouldn't for tourney play, but for rec ball and wood ball it is great. Also, it makes a cool looking marker set up, and not to sound "newbie-ish" but it works as an additional intimidation factor for the new guys at the field.

Does its job, and well
Paid $42, and it was money well spent. The slide check works great, the length is right where it needs to be, and it definitely doesn't leak.
I suppose it will twist or tangle once in a while, but remote lines are going to do that no matter what you buy.
The only problem is the set screw on the knob, which (I think) is steel, holding against a brass peg.
Which, if you do the math, equals rips in the brass peg, And it ends up where you can turn your knob forever without it doing anything. So far I just retighten the set screw, and I am good to go. I suppose I will eventually have to come up with some sort of mod for it, but that will be a little while coming, and not too hard of a fix.
For all intents and purposes, I have never regretted the money spent on this piece. And when I hear of the problems others have had with other brand remotes (specifically leakage problems), I am glad I bought what I bought.
Oh, and as an afterthought.... Half of the reviews I've read about the different remote lines talk about how remotes tangle and this and that.... Come on, people. Review the product, not the idea of remote vs. on-gun. The phrase "remotes suck they tangle" makes people dismiss your review, and fast. So you're wasting a lot of peoples' time.
From what I know and have heard, if you are going to go remote, this is the one to get. Minus one point for the set screw deal.

I find this remote to be one of the best out there. Its very durable and works great, just as its supposed to. Ive got it on my Rodeo and I love it. Dont think it would be good for speedball but for woodsball its awesome. I do highly recomment getting at Gas Thru stock however, as it stables it a lot, otherwise you have nothing to stabilize your shooting. I think it lightens the gun a whole lot, and rarely gets tangles, very good remote this one, would recommend to anyone!
Get this for woodsball, with a Gas Thru stock you cant beat it!
I really like my remote. I play woodsball and spend lots of time lowcrawling through the brush. Having the tank on my back makes this sooooo much easier! The length could be a little better, but I can't berate it for it. And thus far I haven't had any major problems with snagging, and believe me I go into some tough terrain. The only thing I would suggest is getting a slide check to save your air when off field. Still, it's not like you really lose too much anyway. Overall, I love it. It does it's job. It's proven itself tough. ANd it doesn't slow me down. If you get snagged, don't go "Oh I'm snagged, stupid remote!" Nope. Just lower your shoulder and keep on the move. It can handle it.
Love it. Lighter gun, lower profile while crawling, and just tough. You may want a slide check unless you're getting all-day air. In that case, who cares?!

Low budget remote, helps expand gas, acts like an expansion chamber.
Sometimes it leaks when screwing in the charging handle.
Its gets the job done period. Sometimes it will leak from the charging handle upon pressurizing, but just backing it out and screwing in again and it is all solved. This remote's length doesn't bother me, but then again that is always based on the user's profile. I actually like it being slightly shorter because there is a less chance that brush will entangle the remote.
Remotes also let CO2 expand, acting like an expansion chamber.
Provides comfort of having a balanced marker, and yet helps in the performance area...What more could you ask for?

Very hard to stretch out, and kind of hard to crawl with.
When the Java Remote came in it look like other remotes. I didn't bother with the slide check since I have a Vertical bottle feed on my M98. Don't get a slide check if your bottle if it is a vertical bottle adapter, you will disconnect it for sure. The product seemed good, no problems as of yet, but the o-ring in the disconnect is still mystery. Don't know if it is a 011 or a 010 size o-ring, but I guess I'll buy both. As for any remotes, some leak and make little hissing sounds, all is due to a bad o-ring on your tank or in the disconnect. Just replace them, it should solve your problems, if not, check if there is any wear on the disconnect pin, if there is and you are still under warranty, just get it replaced by Kingman. If not, just go out and get a better one.
It's good for the money if you are on a budget. But for serious players, you need both your hands free for switching your marker left to right in bunkers. So it's really not needed for tournament players, just woodsball.

Works better than my other 2 remote hoses.
I bought this coil hose for woodsball so i would not have to carry my tank around all day.I liked it so much i sold my other two coil hoses to my brothers. This is the best coil hose i have used and i am very suprised that its a spyder.
Get it. You won't regret it.

Kingman Java Remote Coil

Takes major weight off gun, sturdy
bit stiff, harder to refill (only for HPA) than with an on-gun setup
Ok, I have had this remote and played with it a couple times, and I think it's a great remote. The slide check feature is really helpful and there have been no leaks with my HPA. This remote also makes my A-5 look like an MP-5 because there isn't a bulky tank. The remote is a TINY bit stiff and makes refilling your HPA tank a bit harder because you have to put down the gun to get to your fill nipple in your pod pack, but this isn't true for a CO2 tank.
Great remote, buy it.
If you want a remote, get this one for a sturdy remote to take your tank off your gun and on your backside.
The kingman remote is very durable and is long enough to lie down and use.
The only weakness is the on / off valve.
the kingman remote does what it is intended for and is very durable. the one weakness is that the on/off valve chewed the o-ring inside there and i had to replace it. And yes it does sometimes coil up funny when pressurized but all you have to do is rotate your gun 3 or 4 times.
Its a good buy for 45$ Canadian and does what it's supposed to. If you are looking for a fairly cheap remote that does what is intended definitely go for this product.
Tippman 98 custom
