Products Used:

Strengths: Can way shorten pull
Weaknesses: Lousy stock orings.
Review: ok so in my experience, i took a spill outa a bunker, got my gun dirty, i think sand may have gotten into the 3 way b/c next game my front o-ring was torn up. oh btw, i do lube my 3-way o-rings before every game, and i had a feeling this was what was wrong when i came home to fix the cocker, took it out, and there it was. oh and in a previous review i saw someone said you can't replace bad o-rings, get at stem, etc. thats not entirely true, they have a hex screw that doesn't cover the 3-way (it's an open hole) but it prevents the stem from being removed, you just need to unscrew that to remove the stem. back to the subject, so i was playing a month later, 2nd game with this 3-way on, runs great all day with stock o-ring(only replaced the front, lost my other stock o-ring unfortunatley) take it home, oil it, play around with it, and guess what, there's another leak, now my rear o-ring is torn, How Horrible. I'm doing regular maitanance on my cocker, this is unbelievable, so thats my review. Oh but you can make your throw SOOO much shorter, i wouldn't even buy a bomb, b/c with where i have to put my sear so the gun trips and everything is in time right, i just couldn't have it any shorter, however shocktech would probably put quality o-rings on the bugger.
Conclusion: As bad as my review is, i understand mine is probably just from a bad batch. performance wise, this thing rocks your socks, kapp is outa business now, but you can pick there stuff up off e-bay, and i do kinda recommend it, just save your stock 3-way o-rings.

Products Used:
stock WGP, ANS 3-way, belsales, orracle
Marker Setup: 2k2 vert feed cocker, belsales eclipse blade hinge, STO ram, Kapp 3-way, WGP all delrin bolt, black magic cocking rod, full freak kit SS back 14" teardrop, kapp hammer kit, chrome C5 dropforward, kapp ball detent and ANS jackhammer 2 and other little things.
Strengths: It doesn't leak and it is reliable
Weaknesses: There is not alot of adjustment. Shaft can bend easy
Review: I bought this for my gun last year at badlands in vancouver. It does the job very well and it hasn't given me any problems at all. The only bad thing about this 3-way is that there is not alot of fine adjustment unlike the orracle. Thats not really a big deal since i have the eclipse blade hinge. It doesn't leak or move around, and it looks pretty wicked. The price was fairly good, its not the best 3-way but its not the worst.
Conclusion: If you want a good solid reliable 3-way then this is the one for you, I've had mine for over a year and not one problem with it. Kapp makes good quality products. But if you like to tinker and fine adjust things then I would suggest the orracle. Best bang for the buck.

Products Used:
Stock 3 way - Not even close
Marker Setup: 2000 Autococker
KAPP 3 way
ANS mini ram
Dye Chrome slide 45 Frame
Egg 2
Dye 1200 PSI guage
68 CI 3000 PSI tank
Strengths: Cheap
No Leaks
Smooth
Weaknesses: Had a hard time with the barbs, maybe it was the hose I was using.
Review: I went to the 2004 Paintball Expo at the Pomona Fairplex and got this from the Kapp booth for the amazing price of $10. For that price, even if it completely sucked, I had only lost 10 bucks. I also got a STO ram at the same price. It works great, but I can't complain since I got it so cheap.
Conclusion: If you can find it at the right price, get it. It's good, but not great.

Marker Setup: Blue 2k2 vert
Blue 16" full freak Aluminum back
Kapp Twisted Cocking rod
Kapp f/x Beaver Tail
Kapp 3-way
Benchmark Trigger frame
ANS gen-x reg
Shocktech superfly bolt
CP lightning drop
Kapp On/off
Shocktech FGP reg
90/4500psi Nitro Duck Stubby Tank
Strengths: The looks?
Weaknesses: Got this for christmas(2002) instantly i noticed that the shaft would not come out of the 3-way, i figured thats werid how could you change the orings iof theres a problem. Then the barbs are WAY to small, ive tried 3 different brands of hoses/clamps and they still wont completly seal. Now that i got it to seal its leaking out of the front of the 3-way, oil was added. Now because the shaft is non-removable i have no way to change the o-rings, hence rendering this 3-way usless.
Conclusion: I read good reviews on here so i decided to ask for it...Dont like this 3-way at all...

Products Used:
"Bomb" 3-way
Stock 3-way
Marker Setup: -'99 Autococker
-Eclipse Rock-it Frame
-Freak Barrel System
-68/3000 Nitro Tank
-Kapp 3-way
-Other misc stuff.....
Strengths: -It's soooo smooth that if you tilt it on it's side, the stem moves by itself.
-I have never had it leak when in use, the only time it leaks is if you bump the rod.
-It has a very simple design which means it's very simple to fix if it breaks (but it doesn't break)
-It is just about as short as the raved "Bomb" 3-way....VERY close but not quite the same so that means it's just about as good.
-$35 is pretty cheap for a GOOD 3-way
Weaknesses: -The barbs are a bit close together, but who cares about that.
Conclusion: I love it and I HIGHLY recommend it. Go get one!

Strengths: This was my upgrade from my stock 3-way on my 2001. I have to agree with the person above, It cut my trigger pull in half, a noticable amount.
Weaknesses: I have had no problems with it leeking ot anything yet.
Conclusion: I am sure this 3-way is about the same quality as the shocktech. I choose this one, I have yet to ask my self why, all I know is that I am NOT going to switch to any other one. Its a very good 3-way.

Strengths: this is a great valve it's light but strong. From a stock to this it cut my trigger pull in half. Unlike the A.N.S. this valve is smooth and leek free.
~BONUS~ it looks sweet
Weaknesses: the only thing bad is the nipples I couldn't fit my high priced hose clamps on them( too small ) but it turned out for the better you don't even need them for this valve they stay pretty much on all the time.
Conclusion: this is a great valve to purchase. It's cheap it's smooth and leek free.
