don't have to worry bout air spraying out
Cant remember which ways on/off
This is the best valve on the market today and is so cheap, that your wouldn't believe it. It actually shuts off the co2 flow from the tank to the gun, saving air and oring life. If you are a co2 user, a must so you don't get sprayed with the unscrewing action! Easy to use but difficult to remember it you left it on or off.
nothing to compare

Better Than Pins. Easy to turn on/off, it doesnt grind when turned.
None, its great.
Well, I jacked my friends co2 tanks a few months ago, and it had a turn off valve. I thought it was awsome(thats why i took it lol). Just recently my friend Ricky told me it was a smart parts product and I felt stupid. Don't forget to turn it off before you take it off, i made that mistake and lost a whole 20oz tank :[. And lke the other guy said, it makes it funny to see your friends unscrew quickly so they dont lose air haha.

If left empty, i forget which way is on & off, lol.
This came installed on my very first tank w/ an anti-siphon tube - a 20 oz from Action Village.
Worked flawless for 2 years until i upgraded to a better gun & hpa. Never leaked & the on/off worked well every time. It wasn't until i let my cousin use it on a spare Spyder Sonix another cousin gave me that it had a problem - the o-ring sealing it to the tank broke/deteriorated/disappeared.
Freaked me out because my cousin was standing in front of me with the back of the tank facing me when it happened. I grabbed the gun & wedged it between the ground and a wooden post so if the tank had shot off, it'd go into the ground while the gun would've got stuck in the post, maybe. Then i just let all the co2 bleed out.
EDIT: Had it repaired last month & filled yesterday. Working great again.
Good thing to have for those stock (or nearly stock) blowbacks like my backup AMG.

not too expensive $20
Keeps the co2 in when unscrewing the tank
People say it needs to professionally installed...HAHA....All you do is screw it on what more do you need?? This product works for me and for mostly every1 else...It is a good product and you should buy it if you wanna save money in the long run....Without it when you unscrew your tank it leaks some out so buy this and it wont leak....The only problem i had with this is that it doesnt tell you which way is on or off but i said lefty lusy righty tity!

20oz. CO2 w/On-Off Valve

None at all
This is a must for any paintballer with a CO2 tank.
It will save you an endless ammount of CO2, you will get at least 25-50 more shots out of your tank (dosent sound like alot, ut trust me out on the field 3 shots can make a difference)
If you hate that extra CO2 left in your marker, or even if your not, you need this valve. Just trun it off, take like 4 shots and your gun is out of CO2. Just simply unscrew your gun at any pace and no CO2 will be wasted or blown into your face.
I have had this valve for arround 2 years now, and I cannot begin to tell you the money i save. I have to get my tank filled up alot less times, i blow alot less O-Rings, which add up in the end. I have had a 20oz tank for roughly 5 years now, and before I got the valve, I replace an O-Ring 1 or 2 times every day I played. I have had my valve for 2 years now, and no lie, havent had to replace the O-Ring once. Total money saver!
If you have a CO2 tank, you need this. GO BUY ONE
Rating is a 10 because it saves you alot of money for a cheap price. No more wasted air or blown O-Rings.

I have used this for a while now. It works great. I used to go through a lot of o-rings every month, but now i havent gone through any yet. It also saves air. Usually with a tank with a pin valve, when you unscrew it you waste about 10 plus shots and possibly an o-ring. With this, you turn it off, take several shots, unscrew, no hiss, saves an o-ring.
Great valve for price.

The valve o-ring(read review)
I really enjoy this item. i have been using it for a while now and i personally enjoy them. i have one on my 20oz and my 12oz. the only problem that i have encountered was the small o-ring that is about 2 cm in diameter. this is the o-ring that stops the air from coming out of the tank, not the 2 ones that are on the pin that you twist. this one o-ring may get nicked, causing air to leak. it is easy to replace. just take it out, put some oil on the new one (sometimes you can just flip the old one) and put it in. it isn't that big of a deal, you may want to buy some spare o-rings for backup, but it still beats replacing the regular tank o-rings.
I would defiantly get one. it may not have a place to put a gage on it, so get a bullet dropforward and put one on it. i put a 9 because of the small o-ring problems.

This on/off pin vavle is an excellent way to savve o-rings and co2. Before I had this product I used to bleed my tanks off, which takes more co2 and your not guareteed to save your o-ring then. his product doesn't really have any weaknesses. One thing I did notice though, is that on some Spyder models, the on/off valve is located directly under the grip making is hard to acsess. This is probably for the best however, as if not you could accidently bump it shutting off your co2 supply. It would also be in danger of snagging on a tree and breaking off. Even a nasty fall on the ground could provoke this dreadful accident. So thats why they chose to make the threads like this I guess, to avoid such and incident. All in all this is a great product, it doesn't affect the way you handle your tank. The finish is nice on this product as well.
If your tired of replacing broken o-rings or you want to save those last precxious shots you get from conserved co2 purchase this product.
I got this a few months ago and have only had positive experiences with it. This on/off valve saves orings, looks cool, and allows you to stop your gun from going into that annoying full auto thing when it runs out of co2. The valve only needs to have a slight turn and it is on.(don't worry it isn't so easy to turn on that it will happen on accident) Something you should know when you first get it is to lubricate the oring with some saliva or vaseline otherwise it might not work for some reason.
There is no reason to not get this. Nothing better than this.
