It's not necessarily the fact that they are smart parts markers, but now EVERY smart parts marker is a spool valve design.
The only one that was semi efficient was the Impulse, not stock though. they had a heavy aluminum bolt and the ram shaft wasn't the slickest.
Not to mention the stock dwell on an imp is kinda high.
Compared to my cocker, the impulse is a hog, but then, cocker is one of the most efficient markers out there; when properly tuned.
So basically ANY spool valve marker is inefficient, due to their method of operation.
expect about 1000-1100 shots off of a 68/45 with a qev.
