Kingman Java Remote coil hose
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.

So I recieved one of these and I immediately put it on my gun and connected it up to CO2... The remote came with the main coil, and some small, brass "plug" thing that I guessed that you had to stick into the part that connects to the CO2 so it can press the CO2 peg in. (Since mine didn't come with any directions or instructions I wasn't sure.) The first time I put it in, I soon realized that I had installed it backwards; no big deal, just take it out and put it back in the opposite way. However... upon doing it the correct way and attaching the CO2, the coil began to expand... and expand.... and expand... then... BANG! The coil ruptured. Within 3 minutes of oppening the package my remote was dead. I'm sending it back and getting a new one in hopes that it was only some defective one.
-UPDATE- After returning the old one, they gave me a remote without a slide check ( I didn't want to get into it with Kingman so I just shut up and took the slide checkless remote...) This second remote worked rather well for quite a while, only today did I ever have to make any adjustments, the O-ring had shifted somewhat and all I had to do was move it around with a small screw driver to put it back into place, now it works perfectly again. This slide checkless remote works by far better than the remote with the slide check! I definitely recomend the slide checkless remote!
If the product would have worked the first time I'm sure it would have worked wonders, if you choose to buy one of these, inspect it first, and if possible, test it with CO2 before buying it.
-UPDATE- The product is way worth it if you get the remote without the slide check! Get it!

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!

Kingman Java Remote Coil
TechT Vortex Mod
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.

ACP2, Tippmann A-5, Viewloader Triad.
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?
Tippmann A5, J&J S2 12" ceramic barrel, Pure Energy 20oz. CO2 tank, Spyder 4+1 pod pack.
Seems very sturdy. Takes weight off the marker. Great deal for $25.
Issue with o-ring on the CO2 tank.
When I got this remote yesterday, I immediately ran outside to test it. Straight-forward hookup, but you do need to rotate and push the disconnect slider a little bit to get it to engage. No biggie. I can also confirm that the line coils up on itself a bit when pressurized. Otherwise, there were no leaks and it performed very well during my test. HOWEVER, today when I hooked everything up and was on my way onto the field, one of my teammates noticed my back was frosting up where the tank was strapped on. He fiddled around with it, but couldn't get the leak to stop. We both looked at the O-ring on the tank, and it seemed OK. So I had to screw the tank back onto my A5, since the other team was waiting for us to come in the woods and hand their butts to them (and we didn't disappoint, either. Hooah.). When I got home this afternoon, I saw the reviews about this remote and how replacing the tank O-ring will fix the leak problem. Sooooo, I replaced the ring and guess what? It worked! Guess I'll need to stock up on O-rings.
For 25 bucks, this is a great remote, quirks aside. Seems very durable, but remember to stock up on O-rings for your CO2 tank (at least they're cheap)! I'll give it a 7, since I don't have any other remotes to compare it to.
Kingman remote with slide check
Special Ops Blackcell M-1
I thought the length was good
Slide check leaks
poor quality control
I thought it looked like a quality remote when I pulled it out of the packaging and I thought a $50 remote would be good quality. I was wronge. I put the slide check in the off position and put it on my air tank, instantly it started leaking around the slide check. I moved it up and down a little and got it to stop, so I hooked it up to my gun and pressered it up worked fine then I went to put the slide check to off and it would not budge. I will be returning this remote
This part of my review is more towards Action Village. They have Great costumer service. They took my remote back paid for the shipping both ways and sent me a new remote. the new one works flawlessly, the slide check has a good seal and slides to off easy while pressureized. Shop www.actionvillage.com good prices great service and great selection.
The peace of **** started leaking agian. I will get my money back not a replacement this time. DON'T buy this remote with a slide check!!!!
Don't by this remote.
I give it a 2 of 10 because it did not explode.
New remote works great. I will only give the remote a 7 of 10 now for poor quality control
Worked fine the first use I went to use it agian what do you know it leaked. 1 of 10

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.
-BP Folding Stock
-Tip Exp. Chamber
-SP 14" Progressive Barrel
-Home-made mods out the wazoo
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.
