The speed and low pressure operation of the Matrix demands a high flow regulator. The Rocket Regulator is perfect for the job. Our innovative external-thread front adjustment knob provides the largest air chamber available, giving you the finest adjustment ability and an incredibly low operating pressure. In addition, the Rocket is easily rebuildable with a simple Schrader valve.
The Dye Rocket Matrix Regulator is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
AKA SCMs are the only other Trix LPR's I've used, but I've used most other LPRs on the market for cockers and other markers.
Turtle Autococker Half Block Custom Milling and Anodization
All Turtle Internals
All Belsales Front Block Pneumatics
Nickel Palmer's Pursuit Shop Fatty Regulator
WGP kaner Kit
KAPP Reflex II Nickel Hinge Frame
Dye Stickies 3
Halo B (Overkill on a mech cocker, but who cares? Its off my other gun anyway...)
The Rocket LPR is the factory LPR for Dye Matrix LCDs, and as such, I have one.
My Matrix works beautifully, and this LPR is fairly consistent. However, after about a case in one day, I began to get some creep, and the gun was chopping a little too much at the end of the day.
After a cleaning and regreasing, it works fine, but again, the lubricant decays too quickly inside it and it begins to creep.
Aside from the creeping, it's a nice LPR.
However, I always stand by AKA products, and I've replaced the rocket with an SCM 3.
This baby flat rocks!! Ultra low pressure operation, super smooth adjustments, killer looks, easily rebuildable, and like the RONCO guy says, "Set it and forget it". I set my velocity at 297, and she stays there all day. +1/-1 on a bad day. This is definately one for the record books.
Buy it! If you don't I'll be sending you to the dead box too!
Shocktech Matrix LPR, basically the same internal design but can be adjusted to high of a bolt pressure causing it to chop paint
LED Matrix, 12 v Revy with X-baord, Aradus or Freak barrel systems, Air America "The Reg" 88 ci 4500 tank, Dye LPR
Looks great, will not break paint even at the highest pressure setting
Cannot be adjusted while the marker is gassed up easily
This low pressure regulator does exactly what it is designed to do. I have shot over 12000 thin shelled paintballs with out a single chop!!! I have felt the bolt bounce off a few balls when I forgot to turn on the hopper but the LPR did it job when I forgot to do mine. The Dye LPR looks great, is simply built, and does what it is designed to do.
Overall a well designed and good looking product, does it's job well and should last forever with easily available repair parts (valve, o-rings). Buy this and be happy!!!
