No offence, however I feel your statement is potentially biased with a vendors viewpoint, specifically due to your relationship with Lucky. That said, I'm fairly certain all vendors would prefer one-on-one communication with their product consumers prior to the announcement of difficulty experienced in a public forum.

Clearly that vendor mindset ultimately defeats one of the intended purposes of a public forum? It is my opinion that public expression and/or experience (good or bad) provides insight to others that may encounter similar experiences (good or bad) and/or prepare them in seeking resolution. In addition, I feel such expression is essential to insuring a higher quality of a product is being released for public consumption.

Now in returning to your statement, specifically about my choice to express initial distain with a recent product acquisition; clearly you understand as consumers we expect our hard earned dollars put forth in the pursuit of purchasing products will be returned with a product of quality; not a product that fails to deliver as promised – expression (good or bad) of such experiences is human nature; label it what you will. (i.e. frustration). Clearly my first instinct was to contact the manufacture for further instructions, this was done in haste, followed by a public presentation (i.e. post) of my initial experience (good or bad); in this case - bad. Fortunately in this particular situation the vendor/manufacture was diligent in pursuing an expedited resolution; clearly solidifying their commitment to customer service. To date, Evolve and Bump have done an outstanding job in that pursuit.

In closing, you and I both have heard the stories of vendors choosing to ignore their customers when difficulty is experienced and not only until a written public expression (i.e. post) of distain is made does a vendor rush for resolution, and subsequent public absolution. I choose to be proactive, rather than reactive when expending my hard earned dollars only to encounter dissatisfaction.

Best Regards.

I was getting ready to purchase the 2-liter but I am liking what I am reading.

For about $30 less it is worth a shot.

Mathimatically The Evolve is quite a bit better than the 2liter I belive... you won't go wrong with either one... I would say save your extra $$$ from buying the Evolve and buy something else with the saved cashola...

How high of a pressure can you get on a low pressure PI with the shims?

just got mine in the mail today from compulsivepaintball.com (i ordered it on wednesday...best service i have gotten from an online store to date! not to mention it was 5 bucks cheaper than anywhere else i saw and ended up being 65 and change shipped to my door.) i cant wait to get it out to a chrono. i was also surprised how well it looks with the -15* reg extender (i like the - 15*, and it makes the reg a little longer which was nice) i had. it looked like crap with my cp reg but was comfortable so i didnt care. looks were one of my concerns about it, but i am very pleased with how it looks on my ion. now i just need to find an indoor field...

I was rather disappointed when I received my Evolve Pi LP reg. At a quick glance, it was perfect. I decided to take it apart because of what VPREATR had said about his having metal shavings. The “guts” came out fine, but what I found inside the main body of the reg is what bothered me. There were metal shavings, almost like a fine dust that had gotten mixed with the dow33. If the reg had been used it could be mistaken for being dirty. But I’ve worked with metal (mainly welding) before. I cleaned it all out, and I’m sure the reg will be fine. I wouldn’t have had a problem in keeping the reg. But after taking the reg apart, I got a closer look at the reg body’s anodized finish. Its not really a polished, its more a of a semi polish. But I found hundred of tiny dents all over the place. The pictures I took don’t really show the dents very well, so I’ll take more tomorrow when there is some sun out.

I also e-mailed sales@evolvepaintball.com to see what they have to say. I’m it will be settled accordingly…

I know some of you have been complaining about the Evolve reg not rotating around enough to get the macro line fitting in the right spot. I might suggest that AKA locking ASA extensions. If you get the shortest one it will only increase the distance by 7/8" which isn't much. It beats having to do the o-ring trick and not get it in just that right spot. You can find them all over the internet, but here is a website I found which will give you an example.

The locking ASA extensions seem perfect for this application. Get a little length out of it cuz it is quite a short reg, and your good to go as far as marco fitting placement.

I have been looking all over the net to find the pressure rating for the HP model of the evolve PI reg and cant find it anywhere including the evolve website. If anyone can tell me the pressure ratings that would be much appreiciated. Thx.

LP is 200 and HP is 400. And you get shims so you can raise or lower it. Evolve still hasn't gotten back to me....

Yes, identical to the top of the AKA 2-liter. The collar is fully adjustable to ANY position.
