please read before you rate this review badly

i got one of these a while ago. it had some problems with either airing up at 100 psi only, or 300+ and i was only trying to get it to 140ish. i took it to my shop and they couldnt get it working but got a whole new one from evil. i get this one and get it to air up at about 220 fresh from the shop. i turn it down a bit and it goes to 100 and wont go up at all. take it back to the shop after completly relubing and checking all parts like i did with the first one and they tell me it would be too expensive to get working again. so as you can see, i have had a pretty bad experience with them.

I put this reg on my 05 prostock and it has worked great. At first I had a hard time getting it just perfect, once I got it set, I have not had to touch it since.

It is consistent (not perfect, but about + or - 4fps with compressed air and about + or - 6 or so with co2, on a bad day). It is no exactly light, but it is not too bulky. It is easy to adjust and is highly adjustable and has never given me any problems. It does have a long break in period though, so at first it is not that consistent, but after 5000-10000 balls through it, I think it finally broke in. It does not have a guage, but that is not that big of a deal to me.

I would give this product 8 out of 10 stars, because it is not perfect, but pretty good for the price I paid

Pros: None at All
Cons: Worst Regulator Ever
While this regulator may look nice it is the most horrible design I have ever seen. The pressure adjustment, hose inline, and the entire regulator all spin in the same direction, however there is nothing to grip.hold onto to counter act the spin, so if any one of the three sections of the regulator get stuck (which happens a lot, you are completely screwed. It took me over 3 hours to get it off my gun, and it ended up breaking in the process. A complete waste of $25, avoid this regulator at all costs.

Pros: Consistent, reliable
Cons: Heavy, long break-in period, velocity adjustment
Pros:

- Consistent
After break-in period, I've found the regulator is capable of +/- 3fps.

- Reliable
Never had an issue with leaks, drop-off, velocity spikes or anything of the like.

Cons:

- Heavy
Has quite a bit of weight to it, though I suppose one could say this is a sign of durable construction.

- Long break-in period
Takes around 4-5 cases before it reaches optimal performance.

- Velocity adjustment
I find the locking collar to be a bit quirky. In my opinion, a single velocity adjustment screw would be less of a hassle and allow for more precise adjustment.

For the price I got it, it was a really great deal and did the job.

I'm using this regulator with my Evil Pimp and I can say only good things about it. Performancewise excelent reg in term of pressure stabilty and recharge rate - simply excelent.

The only thing you have to remember is to fire a shot or two when changing the pressure wit the reg - otherwise reg seat wears out quickly. Maintenenace is a little more complex than for example ego regs but nothing you cannot handle - if you take care for this reg it works simply great. I do not care how it looks - it works perfect for me.

Recently there were some sales of those and they were really very cheap - low price for excelent performance. If I'm not mistaken they are hard to get now.

Mine came with the Pimp so I cannot provide the standalone price for the reg.

I originally purchased this for my Tippmann Custom Pro. I wanted a reg just to help in consistency and speed adjustment with my shots. The site I ordered this from (ANSGear.com) mislabeled this reg as 0-1200PSI. Should have looked here first!
It works, but with my pressure requirements, my velocity's gonna be low and i'm gonna drop every-other shot, especially when ramping or rapid fire.
