I got this regulator for about $59 at g3 paintball. It shot an average+-4 at the chrono. I had no problems what so ever with it. I like how you have to adjust it with an allen wrench. Once it 's set, it cant be messed with while on the field.
Love this reg plan to get another one for my Timmy
Ability to be moved a bit and still seal
I got this regulator for about $85... which was a extreme rip off deal for me because you can get it at paintballgear for about $70 but anyhow what's done is done. I tested this reg out today at my field and I shot about 10 balls: 281 280 285 275 282 283 281 and so on... it shoots very consistent with the exception of that 275... I have no idea how that thing poped in there. Overall, for the price it's comparable to the CP reg but since I have not used the CP reg before, I can't tell you the difference or what's better. Another thing I like about this reg is the looks, I love my chrome reg, especially with the blue ST labels. Last thing I like is the fact that you can unscrew this reg about a 1/4 to adjust to where you like the gauge to be and still seal. Some regs I know of start leaking as soon as it gets loosen. Now for the NOT so goods: PRice.... besides the rip off deal... the CP reg is about $10 cheaper and judging from most who had used it, it's just as consistent yet it cost less... and the feel of the regulator is something i'm not used to quite yet, but that's only personal preference so you shouldn't worry about that.
For those of you deciding on either a CP or ST reg, you should go to your local field and find a CP reg that you can test out so you can look at the difference and see which one you like. If you can find a ST reg used and in good condition for cheap, i'd definitely go for it, but for those who are going for maximum consistency, go with the AKA Sidewinder.

Easily adjustable, two gauge ports, looks great
none so far
Well, I bought this reg to replace my stock one when I put in my Maddman Rocket Valve. And it has worked great so far. I finely got it all tuned together and this reg is working great. I am running 250psi and 285-290 fps with this reg. My fps dont change but maybe 1 fps when I'm shooting slow like 2-3 bps. And when I get higher like 10-13bps they are only changing about 2-4fps. Now like I said, I did put this on with the new valve, but the consistancy this thing has is all from the reg.
Only one, not really a weakness, just different.
- Different adjustment threading
This reg looks great on my cocker w/ some tight milling. Also it has the shocktech bubble stickers on it. It's threaded just right so that when screwed into my cocker ASA, the bubble sticker lookst dirctly 4ward 2ward my pnumatics. Great for when someone's lookin down the wrong end of my barrel.
It seems preatty consistant, but i don't have a barrel kit, so my barrel paint match makes velocity more inconsistant than the reg would so it's hard to tell.
It also has 2 holes at the top of the reg on either side for a guage if u wanna use one. Doesn't come w/ a guage, but it comes w/ plugs. Also if u wanna use one, it reads the psi going into the gun, which i think would be more usful than some regs that tell u whats coming from your tank.
Also the intup hole that the line from your tank goes to comes out the center of the bottom keeping it out of the way and allowing your line to come from virtually any angle. (Like stock wgp reg)
This reg is externally adjustable w/ and allen wrench. Because it uses and allen wrench and not a knob u need plyers to adjust, it's very easy to do when it's gassed up. Also there's nothing that could be bumped or something during play. But something to know when adjusting this reg, if you want to increase ouput preasure, u must turn the set screw to the left (out) and to decrease the output preasure u must turn it to the right (in). This is the opposite way in which many other regs work. Not really a weakness, just some FYI.
Good reg w/ some cool milling. Preatty consistant, reputable company (shocktech). Easily adjustable. looking for a nice externaly adjustable reg? Get the shocktech. Nothin wrong w/ this product, so it gets a 10,

Consistent, looks good, easy maintenance
If u dont lube it you'll get drop off
This reg is great, it only cost $70 were i got it (extreme rage proshop). So far i haven't had any problems with this reg, except for a little dropoff because i hadn't lubed or cleaned it so that was my fault, the reg is very consistent over the chrono, i get +-3fps on average, if its really in need of a clean down u might get +-7fps and thats the worst itll ever do, the reg looks great and is very light, it's not too big but big enough to get a grip on
I love this reg, i wouldn't use anything else. BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!
