Fireball Mountain Thorn Drop Forward with On/Off Reviews
This drop is a perfect balance of a drop and a forward. Provides you with better center of gravity, without bringing the tank too far forward or down to prevent good sholdering. THe on/off works well, however not as fluid in turning as other on/offs. The On/Off provides dual NPT ports for hose and gauge, and the ASA can be adjusted forward and back for finer tunning. Many DF ASA's cause your tank gauge to not be aligned with the ASA (gauge on the wrong side, or on the bottom), but this one matches my centerfire perfectly. The gauge on the right of my ASA and the gauge on my tank align perfectly.
THe only drawback to this DF w/ ASA is that the ASA dovetail grooves are a bit weak and tend to bend a little causing the ASA to get loose from the DF over the period of a day of play. YOu can just keep your allen wrench with you to tighten it up if it gets loose, but eventually you will need to take a soft mallet to the ASA to tighten the dovetail grooves back down.
Great drop, but I would recommend a one piece from someone else that doesn't get loose.
