A1 cup seals...what is the deal?

Alright, I have shot angels for over 10 years religiously, so I am not here to bash. Maybe just vent a little. I have had two brand new Magno cupseals separate from the valve stem this week. I tried the super glue fix and hopefully they will hold for a while.

Anybody tried this super glue fix with any luck? Can I expect to atleast last through 24 hour scenario game this weekend?

The separation issue with the latter-day Magno cup seals is the reason the D-Lite stem was released. Your repair should hold for the weekend, but I'd recommend eventually migrating to the D-Lite. When you do, be prepared for the magnet in the stem to fall out and re-glue it, but at least that's only a 1 time repair if it should happen.

Lol, so the D-Lite wasn't properly tested either. APS/WDP sure were skimping on R&D at the end. Probably won't upgrade to D-lite. Might just cut my losses and find a new flavor. Thanks for the help Strange.

All of the adhesives they used seem to be lacking, for whatever reason. However, the D-Lite is a worthwhile upgrade. Seal separation is a way bigger issue than the magnet.

Yup. Your glue will hold up fine too but the d lite is cheap enough to afford.

Not to hijack, but Doc... Where can I find the Dlite stem for my A1? I see them for the AR:K. Is it the same?

All of the D-Lite stems are the same across all platforms.
