expansion chamber/ drop forward help

I was looking at expansion chambers and drop forwards for my 98 custom and have a few questions, any help would be very nice. Is the PB X-core 8 stage X-chamber any good? And does the X-chamber go on the front grip of the gun or where the hose comes out of the gun? If i get an X-chamber, and a PB DF what else do i need to hook every thing up? I thought maybe a 90 degree elbow and a shorter hose.

You will need a vertical adapter for the x chamber, its basically a solid hose that will route the air from the front grip area to the powertube, and give you standard threading in the grip area for x chambers, gas thru grips, etc. Usually around 30 bucks.

sounds about right. if it's the newer style PB DF there alittle different. i would buy some macro-line and get macro line elbows so that you can get the hose the right length. if you get the old style PB DF you dont need new fittings and macro-line.

You'd need like a 1-2 inch hose, because the end of the pb drop will end up right under the bottom of the X-chamber. For everything you'll need:
-1 90 degree elbow
-1 45 degree elbow
-1 1-2 inch hose
-1 vert adapter
the drop and X chamber. And I'd reccommend that you bring your gun down to you local paintball shop to have the vert. adapter put in because you have to take the powertube out of the gun to install it. Hope I helped.

A 4" hose should work with a slight bend in it (mini rainbow). You can bring it right out of the bottom of the x-core, then into a single 90 degree elbow on the drop forward. It's hard to find hoses shorter than 4" and they don't give you much flexibility to work with when they're that short either.

Some people don't like them because they aren't as tough as steel hose. But it's more flexible, easier to use and cheaper in most cases. Plus it won't ever leak if you install it correctly.
