Luxe efficiency questions/.

i searched around and didnt get a proper answer to what i am looking for what should a properly tuned/working luxe get out of a 68/4500 pods wise. also what would you expect it to get out of a 77/4500 i am just making the switch from an LV1 and my main concern is just how many pods i can carry and shoot out of the luxe since i have never owned one i get many different answers at my local field so i just want to ask the experts(you guys) thanks in advance for the help i was hoping to be able to get 11 off the stock bolt but i plan on getting the eigenbolt soon anyways for my oled.

hopper and 6-8 heh, but I got feathertouch in and set to be ridiculously smooth and I play front so efficiency hasn't meant much

mine is all stock right now. So off a 77/45 i got about 7 pods and A 260 out of a 3700ish fill today at the field. can i do anything to get more efficiency I need to be able to get at least 10 pods and a hopper off the 4500 fill. IS this possible? or is it just not going to happen

It's possible depending on how much farther you can tweak your settings from where you're at. It also always helps to underbore. A lot of people probably wouldn't recommend it but I'd pick up a lurker eigenbolt. I've had really nice results with mine, though I haven't played much recently.

At mao I was pulling 8 or 9 pods plus a full hopper off a ninja 70/4500 set to a 550 psi output. 2.0 core, feather touch screw out, dwell at 16, fsdo setting at 15.

Try those settings and see if you get any better results. Also make sure your orings are good and it isn't too tough to manually slide your bolt.

Depends a lot on how you have your gun set up. Here is a video yourpbfriend did on the OLED. I am getting around 8 pods, give or take a pod. Mine is by no means set up for optimal efficiency but my settings are dwell 18, Feathertouch in, manifold tuned to minimum that I can sustain 12.5 bps, FSDO 0. This setup has worked well for me both with the stock core and bolt and with a modified 2.0 bolt guide, stock core with pooty bolt.

If you need efficiency its always going to be an uphill battle with a LUXE. Here's to hoping the eigenbolt finishes its teething problems.
