Exclamation LP or HP tank for Luxe 1.5??

I have heard one extreme to the other for both LP and HP tanks, can someone draw the line of what is better for the Luxe?

Luxe works best on 550.

Yes between 425psi and 550psi seems to be the sweet spot for many luxes. I, and many others prefer the Ninja SMP 550. Runs like a champ!

The answer is: "standard" or Pro Ninja reg with shims removed.

One Shim left in the pro Reg will yield you with 550. Remove all and you are at 450.

450 psi is absolutely fine for the Luxe.

All shims removed on a Ninja reg should be closer to 400psi, not 450psi.
My current Luxe and others have always ran flawless on 400psi. You only need double what you marker runs on, which is about 190psi on a Luxe, therefore recommend 380psi or higher tank output

All the Vendetta players & I run HP tanks (850 PSI output) and our guns shoot great. The gun will work on LP, SMP, or HP.

I normally recommend HP because it can be used on any gun besides the Bob Long guns (as far as I know).

550 is ideal but anything over 450 should do perfect for you. SLP works for some Luxes but recharge rate isn't good enough sometimes.

If you have any questions John ask Kenny for my # I got ya covered.

True that, I had to reg swap with one of my team mates because the SLP when it would start shooting 12.5 it'd lose about 10 FPS every shot
