Trouble getting high Bps with break-beam eyes....
Hey guys -- So this isn't a big "problem" per se, but I just wanted to get your take on this. I've been running break beam eyes for awhile now but last summer one of the bulbs on my bb kit broke, so I had to go back to using a reflective eye until recently. At that time, I was also using a Tadao Yakuza board which seemed to be plagued with uncountable problems (so I never really knew how the gun was doing with BB eyes). For the last two days of playing this past Fall, I reinstalled my E2 board and it worked flawlessly with the reflective eyes. I also run an MQ2 valve and was able to keep the Lpr very low and still get into the 14bps range on semi (On a good day I can hit 15 or 16, and with my Rotor I think it would have gone that high, the gun was RIPPING).
Anyway, I got my BB kit replaced and reinstalled it yesterday using the E2. With the SAME SETTINGS I used to get 14bps in the Fall (other than switching it to BB), I was only able to get 11bps. So then I checked the "Ball" and "Empty" settings and set them to "2" -- which seemed to be a fairly low value. Tried it again and it moderately improved but still only got 12-13bps. At this point I put it on PSP mode to make sure it wasn't just my fingers. Still only 12-13. So then I started to lower the Coff, minimized the Cdel (4.1 is minimum). I finally got it to hit 14bps consistently on PSP mode, with Coff at 22 and the Lpr turned up higher than I'd like it.
I know I could get it all the way to 15bps with some more tweaking but at that point it might require a pretty high Lpr pressure to avoid shootdown. That's beside the point. The point is, it was doing those kinds of speeds with conservative settings using a reflective eye, and now it's not with the break beam system. Is it possible that I misplaced the location of the BB eyes when I drilled?
It's really not a big deal, as I don't "need" more than 12bps. But I almost always play with uncapped semi and if I hit 15bps on the trigger, I'd like my gun to be able to keep up without being setup like a jackhammer.
