+New Patent pending design that involves engineering the industry has never seen. Built for strength, design and unique in function, this is push button on/off system that will be set apart from the rest.
The Hybrid Technologies Grind is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
If you REALLY wanna see my setups... which I doubt, go to:
- Push-button operation
- Freaking TINY
- O-rings need occasional greasing, but are easy to get to
Good Grief, where do I start. I went from a Unimount to this. The push-button operating system is amazing; yet the design prevents it from accidentally being turned off in mid-game. Combined with the Hybrid Micro Rail, which I purchased along with it, I am convinced that this must be the smallest and lightest Unimount ever. For comparison, it's around 2/3 of the size of the CiP Uni, which itself is considered small. And having kick-ass looks can't hurt, either.
I am so glad I found this.
Best. ASA. Evar.

Ease of use
I threw this onto a blunt drop. I was looking for something different than I had seen at my field. This thing does the trick. It is sooo easy to use, even with gloves on. After you turn it off, it will purge the remaining air also. It mounted nice, and the finish was great. The milling really make this a one of a kind looking piece. Everyone that has asked about it is very impressed with how easy it is to use.
Anyone that knocks Hybrid parts, and you know who you are, is crazy. This company puts out some cool products, and this ASA is near the top of the list. Highly recommended if you want something easy to use, that looks great at the sime time.
This is definitely a great buy. Hybrid made an awesome product. Most other on/offs use dials you have to twist and on some tanks you can twist the dial in too much and block the air source off. With this there's no worry about that just move the brass slider button about a centimeter and its on or off. The only thing bad i can say about it is you have to buy a rail to attach it, which isn't that bad of a thing but its still more money. One of the other things I liked about it was that the fittings went into the front of the on/off so there's no hoses coming out the sides to get in the way. After a while some of the o-rings wear-out but hybrid gives you some with the on/off so you have what you need. Just some information in the off position the button is out of the on/off and it is in, in the on position, so you can't bump it off in game.
I highy reccomend this part to anyone, it works and looks great. If you need an on/off buy this, forget anything else
Other on/offs have the dial that turns to open the flow from the tank when they're turned in. I never liked that very much. Hybrid's Grind is a very nice alternative.
Operation is simple:
- push button in from left side (gun pointing away)
- screw in tank
- push button in from right side.
Hybrid even has a diagram, instructions on operation & o-ring replacement on their site just in case.
Speaking of o-rings, this thing uses 3, unfortunately. And they're an odd size. But like any o-ring, take one to a hardware store and find a match. The good thing is, only one needs replacing if the push-button leaks (the middle one).
Hybrid is pretty good about mixing style with function and that's true about this asa. Price isn't listed above but expect to pay around $45. Pretty steep for an asa by itself, especially since you still need a drop or rail, but you've got to get used to prices in paintball sooner or later.
