Not at all. Im not a "stock or nothing type".however I do recognize that stock is stock for a reason. Its general setting meant to work decent on any of that gun. I also recognize that aftermarket doesn't mean better.
When I go to set my guns.Im running a higher dwell because. I set my lpr, then get the hpr to around 260. I then up the dwell until I no longer see a gain in velocity over a chrono. I add one. finish out the hpr to 295. Nearly every matrix Ive set with that method has been 21. My 10 went to 22 in the winter.
I got 9 pods and a hopper on my 9. before it sold, and the same with my IM9. those two guns carried me through 3 full seasons playing in two national leagues. must have shot millions of balls each. Id call that well broken in.
When Id reset the gun's pneumatics 3-4 times a season (to coincide with major weather changes), the dwell still sat at 20/21.
If Im not a person to care about smoothness, why the eff would I be shooting a matrix? The biggest selling point to these guns is the way they shoot.
What I mean is a dwell of 9ms is half the time recommended. that means that the pressure needed to compensate for that is quite substantial. I won't go as far to say its a linear relationship, I don't know the math well enough.. I barely passed my fluid dynamics class.
lets list some potential negatives..Higher LPR. so the bolt is slamming into the paint harder, risking more breakage. and the bumpers hit the can harder, which wears out the orings faster. Also the physical force of the bolt hitting things will be causing some recoil.The HPR is higher too, so the sound signature is increased. The air is accelerating the ball much faster again risking breakage. Faster air will also blow your lube down the barrel faster as well...And that whole Newtons 3rd law thing? with a faster acceleration, the opposing force must also be greater, IE more recoil...
the negative to running a dwell longer for the same work done, is what? 1 less pod per 4500? a battery that dies a day sooner?
