Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
Unparalleled performance continues with the Max-Flo LPR. The low pressure regulator is, well, exactly that—a regulator—for low end pressure. The Max-Flo LPR maximizes rapid firing consistency.
Product Availability 
The Smart Parts Max-Flo LPR is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Products Used:
ANS Jackhammer, Palmer Microrock, Shocktech LPR, DYE LPR, pretty much everything out there
Marker Setup: This was used on a Vision Impulse with LPR set up
Strengths: Very large reg seat/Oring design for surprisingly high airflow for such a little regulator
Weaknesses: Small post regulated air chamber. Small piston.
Review: This LPR could be used on a cocker or Impulse LPR set up. I used it on an impulse.

For such a tiny LP regulator its got a suprisingly large reg seat/Oring design. This is usually the choke point in most regulators. This one is really a shrunk down clone of the Maxflow reg design, so it can move a lot of air through it.

The only weakness is the fairly small piston/post regulated air chamber. This means when you start firing the gun it very quickly uses up the air thats already passed by the reg seat and begins demanding that the LPR process the air behind the reg seat to recharge the post regulated area.

Fortunately, this reg design is up to that challenge.

The other approach to airflow would be like the DYE Rocket LPR (which I don't think they make anymore). Its got a very small schrader valve acting as the reg seat, pretty lousy air flow at that point in the reg, but its got a huge post regulated air chamber.

If your rate of fire demand on the LPR starts surpassing how much air can pass by the reg seat you begin to use up the post regulated air and will sooner or later start suffering cycling slowdown in a cocker or shootdown in an Impulse until you stop shooting for a moment and the LPR is able to refill the post regulated air chamber.

Air flow is a big deal in an Eblade because the reg feeds directly into the solenoid, but an impulse on the other hand effectively expands the post regulated chamber many many times due to the large air tube running down the right side of the gun to the solenoid.
Conclusion: Sorry for the lesson in airflow, the MaxFlow LPR is an excellent little LPR that is very very surprising its capability to keep up with even the highest rates of fire.

Very impressive. I give it an 8 instead of the kneejerk 10 that everyone around gives any product that doesn't explode into little pieces when they open the box.

Review: Its a great buy, its small serves its purpose and looks clean on the front of the gun. When I put it on I immediately saw a difference. no breaking in or anything like that which was nice, I would reccomend this to any impulse owner who wants to improve the performance of his gun
Conclusion: Its a great lpr, good velocity spread, and a good recharge rate and Ive never had problems with it.
