This ASA use what we call "System Bleed" and "Virtual Resistance" Due to the fact that it has virtually no resistance at all while turning it on or off. System Bleed will bleed all the air from your tanks lines allowing you to easily remove your tank after degass.
The Custom Products Direct Mount ASA is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Easy to turn
Prone to leaks
This was my first on/off ASA and I have gotten very good use out of it on a number of different markers (at some point it has been on every marker I've owned except my pistols).
The first thing you will notice about the On/off is its size. There's no way around the fact that this thing is huge compared to most rail/mount on/offs, and other ASA's. It can be frustrating if you're a "marker weight freak" but it also has its benefits in that it is very stable (i.e. it doesn't come loose like alot of other ASA's). Once I put this ASA on a marker I don't have to worry about constantly tightening the screws to hold it in place.
Ignoring the size, this product does exactly what it is supposed to do. The dial is very easy to turn, and the makes it an easy end to the day. For those of you who haven't used an on/off yet- it is a very nice upgrade to have. No more slowly turning the tank off of the system, and no more busted o-rings on your tank.
One nice thing is that the instructions are very well written and give a detailed description of how to take the on/off apart and rebuild it. This can be done in about 5 minutes and requires very little effort, other than re-lubing the o-rings.
This leads me to the one weakness with this product other than size. Of the 3 on/off's I've owned, this is the only one which has ever had a leak. About once every 2-3 months, I can hear a faint leak coming out of it. Now, every single time I've lubed and rebuilt the on/off, the leak has disappeared and it functions properly again. Its just that this On/Off seems to require a bit more active maintenance than any of the other On/Offs I own.
I would buy this product again, but only because I don't mind a little bit of work. If you're a paintballer who's a little lazy with upkeep of his gear, you might end up with a frustrating leak.

Is a bit long, but doesn't effect me in any way.
Well i was at the local paintball store and i saw that they only had CP asa's. So i was looking at the prices and i was like WOW 40 bucks. But then i looked at the other ones that were like 30 dollars but u had to by a 20! separte rail. They installed the Direct Mount and i was like wow. This Thing looks Wicked. The system bleed is cool because it makes taking out the tank very easily
Easy to turn
I needed an On/Off because I was tired of using the stock asa/cage my gun came with. With the cage the asa would turn while putting my tank in and degassing which would be very annoying no matter how tight the screws were. So, my friend had gotten one of these for his PM5. We were shooting it and he isnt to good with putting in tanks, lol so I gassed it up for him and wow, very easy turn. I also liked how you could screw the tank in and then turn it on. That made me decide to buy it, $45 isnt terrible now that I see how nice of a product it is. One mistake I made was not loctiting/teflon taping the side screw. Make sure you do that it give it proper time to dry before you gas up your gun. I didnt do that so it leaked and I thought something was wrong with the on/off. I also like the bleed feature its very nice.
This product is great, I really like it and it does a good job at what its for. Also it has a lifetime guarantee so you can't go wrong.

It has good construction
It does what it does
Hi everyone, so a few weeks ago i went to my local warped sportz store and decided to get me a UL frame for my rail as well as a Bloodline on/off. So i wait a few days so the guy can install everything and I get the marker back and he airs it up no prob. I get home and decided well heck lets go paint a tree, i attempt to air up my marker but the new design of the nitroduck tanks would not let me screw it in all the way so i take the tank off and go back in my house and go and set the rail back so i have clearance for the stupid lip on the tank. So i go back out and try to paint a tree again and again it doesnt seem to screw in all the way(it would screw in but the pin wouldnt depress on the tank). Then i decide to go back up to warped and ask the tech whats wrong and he goes through and determines that its bloodline rail that isnt depressing the tank so he goes and gets a CP on/off rail and slaps it on and we air it on with my tank and low and behold it airs up, cycles, and what have you. So upon usage of the rail i have not encoutered any problems yet, but i have only had it for a month and a half so if something does happen that is related to the product I will update my review. It has good solid construction, the bleeding is nice, and well it does what it is designed to do.
Well it does what it is designed to do, be an on/off rail with a bleeding option and well since its not gold plated or free im going to have to give it a 8. (5 is avg and 10 is godliness everybody).
on/off - EXTREMELY easy to turn, doesn't twist off the screw either.
quality - CP makes awesome stuff, this is no exception. Everything is solid and there is no plastic, everything is sturdy aluminum, brass, or steel. Also, all of the parts are well crafted and they fit together perfectly. What can I say? There are no flaws what-so-ever.
simplicity/design - This ASA was designed flawlessly. It is so simple to break down and clean/lube. For heavens sake, they even have step by step instructions with pictures on their website! Now on to the design part: The bleed performs just like any other bleed would; There are two outlet holes, so you can combine a gauge with macroline, or you can use the included plug if you don't want/have a gauge; The shaping and crafting of the exterior guarantees to add to the looks of your gun...It's the best looking ASA out there; It comes in any color you want; The cool CP jewel is a pleasant touch; what else can I say?
looks - Like I said above, the common consensus says that this thing certainly excels in the looks department.
bleed - Like everyone else seems to say about bleeds: "NO MORE BUSTER ORINGS!!!". Other than that it makes a cool psshhhhhh sound... :)
length - The ASA is pretty long for a direct mount...This one weakness breaks my heart, because this would of been my all time favorite ASA... :( This thing extends ONE INCH beyond the back of my grip...erggggg. Though, I guess If they cut it shorter, the ASA wouldn't look as cool...
This ASA is near perfection. I hope next year they make it shorter so that us tourney playas can get tighter...

Easy to Use
Slighly Hard to turn with Sweaty Fingers
But that might just be me..?
All personal preference, but many will agree that this is a very sleek and good looking ASA. Also it is available in many different colors and backed up by a great company. Only Downside Is That These Are Only Found In A Polished Anno (From What I Know, Correct Me if Wrong) And If Using a Dusted Marker This May Clash With It.
Well its a ASA...Nothing special really but the overall performance is a 10/10 and works perfectly.
As Of 7/29 I Had a Problem With It, During a game....It Came Loose... OMG I am going to give this product a 2 >=O Stupid Custom Products =) Jk, It Turned Out, Big Deal, Happens Once Every What? Like 1 Game Out Of 200 Games, Pretty Impressive I Think.
+Easy To Use+
Its a On/Off...Turn the knob out to stop airflow, In to start, Not that hard at all and it does what its ment to do, and thats all I want. Although with No Gloves and Your Fingers Are Covered With Paint You Will Have To Take 5 Whole Seconds Out Of Your Life To Wipe The Paint Off.
If your looking for a after market ASA with an On/Off then I would highly recommend this one right here, Great Company, Great Product that does what its ment to do.

Unimount - I hate it with a passion

Tank position is very nice
RIDICULOUSLY easy to turn
Almost too easy to turn... =x
In terms of how easy it is to gas, and degas your gun, this on/off (along with the rail version) completely owns every other on/off on the market. If that's what you're looking for, you're done looking, buy an 05 CP on/off.
You can quite literally gas your gun up with one finger, and degas it with one finger. It also purges the extra gas in the lines, so you don't need to take an extra ten shots or w/e to completely degas your setup.
Tank position is great, but that's a preference thing. This particular on/off puts the tank back far and close to the gun, which is how I like it.
The only problem I've heard is, that I once accidentally degassed the gun without noticing it. Luckily I was just fooling around in my backyard... which is the reason I had my hand anywhere near it in the first place, I never support my gun from the bottom of my trigger frame in a real game, so it's not that big of a deal.

- Ease of use
- Great directions
- Dual output ports
Mounting the ASA was extremely easy. Just make sure the screws don't fall out otherwise you have to line up the internals again. The rubber band that holds the screws in place when bought make sure of that. It's best to screw it on partially and then cut the band. I love the fact that you put the output on either side of the ASA and it doesn't require a separate rail to mount it. Turning the gas on and off is really easy and makes gun maintenance a breeze. The only thing that I didn't like about it is the size. It seems rather large for its function but if that's the only drawback, I can put up with it.
Very functional and built very well. I love this thing.
