OT: powerlyte scepter 04 vs. 05

I emailed powerlyte but they did not respond. I have a 04 powerlyte scepter 5 piece system. I think its great but is there any real difference between the 04 and the 05 systems???? i know the tip looks a bit different on the 05. but are the inserts the same? are the inserts interchangable between the 04 and 05??? i need to know because they are making a i think .680 insert for the 05 kit and the smallest i have is .684 and just about allt he paint i use goes through that easily. so does the new inserts fir the old barrels??? is one necessarily better than the other??

The new inserts do not fit with the old tip. The way the inserts are domed, and the tip has the flat reciever has been reversed. Its not the tip that is domed, and the inserts have the flat reciever. There is no real performance difference between the two. Unfortunately, if you want the .680 insert, you'll need to get a new tip.

so this is the 3rd revision of the Scepter?


The first had the fronts that fit over the back... the backs also had windows in them.

Then they changed it to the fronts fitting into the back, the backs did not have windows

Now they've changed the fronts? If so, does this mean that if I want to use the .680 and the other inserts I'll have to keep 2 fronts on hand? Am this right, or is there only 2 styles?

no, there are only revisions. Techincally its the 03 and the 04 scepter. You pretty much described what I did...only simpler.

As for the backs, they dont make any difference. They are interchangable.

Ok, so the only difference between the old and new style is the front and inserts then? So if you have the new style front/inserts, you're fine to get the .680, otherwise you'll have to get a new tip and carry both with you. Right?

Not sure if I have the 03 or the 04 but I think the front fits into the back part. I want to order a longer front...... do I have to buy a new kit now that the 05 are different?
Thanks
