Palmer's Pursuit Shop is a relatively small paintball machine shop, so to produce such an astronomically effective regulator is astounding. The Stabilizer isn't just a regulator; it completely negates the necessity for a secondary regulator.
This is probably the most consistent regulator on the planet. It delivers an output pressure anywhere from 0-600 psi. If you opted for the LPR, I believe that figure is halved. Not only this, but it can withstand the brutal conditions that CO2 can place on any regulator. I've played through games where my tank was covered in frost before the reading on my guage changed. It doesn't operate on the traditional shim stack like most regulators, so it is free to use such devastating propellants. Not only this, but the PPS Stabilizer is cheaper than most. There are a variety of options for customization, such as the male and female adaptations, and they all operate on the same basic premise. The break in period for the Stabilizer also seems to be much less than for traditional regulators.
It may not be pretty, but it works, no matter what.

when i bought my ion i researched what parts i would put on the gun to make it efficient and consitant first and "pretty" second. Read all the reviews for the stabalizer and was very impressed. Was sorta torn between buying the AKA 2Liter, Palmers Stab, and Air America Messiah.
In comparision to the stock reg i noticed that the needle on the gauge wasn't bouncing around as much between shots when i ran the stab. Did have the Air America Messiah for a short time and it wasn't as consistant as the Stab (stock = +/-6, AA messiah= +/-5). the only reg that i have seen that keeps up to it is my buddy's 2Liter (on his shocker)
My marker usually runs +/-3 in the winter (it is COLD here in canada) BUT will run +/- 1 in the summer
Now i own 2 of them (one on each marker)
Cheaper then the 2Liter, Can run CO2 though it, Worth the money you pay for it,
This thing is the best regulator out there, period. I havent used it that much, but when I do its like God blessed my POS TL. When I get my Pilot ACS this thing is going straight on there. Even though it gets a little icy when using CO2, it stays consistent.
Dont buy a $1000 gun and skimp on the regulator, get this one!

Co2 works amazingly well
The Palmers stabilizer is amazing. It is incredibly consistent whether your using co2 or compressed air, I got a +- 3 when running HPA, co2 isn't quite as good, closer to +-5 fps, which is friggin amazinging for co2. This is THE BEST CO2 REG in existance.
The one problem is that when compared to other regs, its not fancy looking at all, but that doesn't matter because its got it where it counts.
Buy this reg, no matter what your doing it is the best you can buy. It even works well under high rates of co2 firing, gets freezing cold, but it never stops being consistent.

Very consistent, works well with E Blade2, CO2 and most HPA setups!
Break in period. 2000 to 3000 shots. Looks plain w/c I personally dont mind.
I used to have a couple of problems with my Tickler LPR in regards to spiking making it a bit harder for the electronic minifold found on E Blades to maintain consistent pressure. It would leak at times at the barbs that would require endless adjustments on the knob along with the HPR. The stock WGP that came with my cocker was not that bad but for some reason, it would need to have it turned up all the way making my marker a bit of an air hog before. My gauge on the LPR input would somewhere be around 650 PSI and this is a game regulated, under 290 fps, chronoed gun.
With all the frustrations and short games due to limited shots on a 68/4500 tank, finally decided to try the Palmers Stabilizer. It's a bit pricey compared to some other well known, well reviewed regs out there but worth every penny this thing is. Pretty much solved all my pressure problems from spiking, shot to shot consistency and from around 750 shots on a full 68/4500, I'm enjoying the game more on a 1100, give or take of pure paintball fun. I have not even passed my break in period and so far, a +/-7 variations on the chrono is not too bad of a deal at all. I could make this cocker run on the factory preset of 500 PSI and have actually turned it down to 300PSI, if that, making it a pretty low pressured Autococker. Matched it up with a Shocktech Valve and boy, this cocker could give some o' them open bolt, higher end markers a good run for their money. A lot has been said how closed bolts are just a tad bit more accurate and the rate of fire that the Palmers have given my marker could only make me feel blessed by the Paintball Gods, lol! Make em' shots count, PEAZZZEE!
Got nothing but praises for Mr. Glen Palmers product and the only downside to this is more paint, more paint and more paint. A definite good buy and if plain looks don't matter to you much, or better yet, just skip the looks on your HPR and this reg would not let you down. It does not look bad at all, it is just "plain" but often times when people see the sticker on the bottom that says Palmer's pretty much changes one's outlook of your gun. Not a perfect 10 because of the looks but does not deserve a downgraded 9 because of the performance. Can't give it a half in between so 10 is more acceptable.

The input port is a little high so it gets in the way.
I've had this red for two days now and it's not broken in yet but it's performance it still great. This is a great reg so far it may be almost a consistant as the hyper2 but not quite. This reg can be a bit pricey but what you pay is what you get. I can't wait for it to break in because I what to see it's performance
hmm... sometimes if I shoot to fast it freezes and my hand sticks to it
I got this for my autococker becuase I thought I was going to be using co2 for quite a while. No matter how fast I shot my autococker it would never let it freeze up or shoot down. After a while I was caught by speedball and bought an e2. I thought I might have to buy a different regulator since I bought a Crossfire tank, but this one worked fine with HPA. When I was timing my gun, i ran out of HPA, so i thought I would use co2. I thought this might freeze up my solenoid, but even when shooting around 16bps, nothing froze or even shot down. The Stabilizer did freeze over in about 4 seconds, but I made a cover for it so my hand doesn't stick to it.
Awesome. Highly recommended for Tippmann owners, and just someone in the market for a new reg. I normally don't give 10's, but nothing is wrong with this reg. Even if you use HPA, this thing is a killer. Another example Palmer makes the best stuff on the market.

Consisent, consistent, consistent no matter the air source
I put this reg on my Rodeo after upgrading it from mech to electro because I was tired of my gun getting so cold from shooting faster with Co2. Not only did it make my Co2 fire more efficiently, but it stopped my gun from freezing up, which keeps it protected from the damaging effects of liquid Co2.
Recently, I upgraded to HPA, but the Palmer still helps. The psi is adjustable via an allen wrench knob at the bottom, and the Spyder kit includes a new macro line with steel-braided hosing to fit the European threading (non-ASA), which allowed me to bolt it on and go without any other alterations.
NOTE: for you Rodeo owners - make sure you buy a new vertical ASA adapter, because the stock regulator on the Rodeo isn't ASA threaded, so you'll be holding your Palmer (or any other reg) until you get one. I bought the CP Assault Block for Spyders, which includes the low-pressure chamber, and is ASA-threaded to accept the Palmer Stabilizer.
Wonderful upgrade, and well-worth the $100.00 price-tag. If you shoot Co2, it's a no-brainer, but it will make your HPA system shoot more efficiently as well, and it's fully adjustable. Excellent product, gotta be the best regulator on the market for the price.

Yes, it is kind of expensive, but you get what you pay for. Well worth the money. Expansion chambers are good, but they are just that...expansion chambers. They don't actually regulate the spikes that come with using any type of air (CO2 or HPA). This is a MUST if you run on CO2. Palmer built this stabilizer with CO2 users in mind and they did a excellent job. You have no idea how well your gun can run on CO2 until you have gone and used this regulator. It definitely helps stop or slow down the escape of CO2 into your marker which is going to help give you consistency and help keep your marker working in top condition. I cannot get across how important it is for a person to get this if they run their marker off CO2. You don't have to live your paintballing days dealing with the pains that come with CO2's expansion and consistency. This regulator will fix that (or at least help a great deal).
Again it is kind of expensive. But it will be one of, if not the most expensive upgrades that you will have for your marker. I think I got mine on 800paintball.com I believe for $89 total (with shipping/handling). I wish I would of got this a long time ago instead of the expansion chamber. Don't get me wrong, they work but this helps a lot more. Also there are different styles, I got mine as just a normal vertcal ASA screw in but they have them where you can rig it as a a double regulator using the elbow fittings. Go to the palmer pursuit website to check out some of the way people have riged up their guns. My stabilizer is also the male type, they do have female, but i think most people would want a male type...just take time to make a good informed decision before you buy it.
