High flow barbs question

I recently replaced 4 of the barbs on my timmy. The two on the back of the solonoid and the two on the ram sleeve. How do I tell what cycling pressure I should have it set at?

set your lpr at 70. shoot over a chrono and see how consistant your timmy is. if your velocity is everywhere, bring your lpr up just a bit and repeat. if not, leave at 70.

i wouldn't suggest going below 70, although many owners can run at 55 or so. we have done testing that a pressure <70 will actually slow down the cycle speed of the noid.

I set mine at 75.

I could cycle at 55 no problem but the gun could not keep up at high rof. So 70-75 is great.

Turn down the LPR all the way. Now air up the gun and turn it on. Slowly turn up the LPR while firing until its starts shooting properly. Mine is about 55 psi.

High Flow barbs question

If you want to drill out the old 1's you do this with a 1/16 bit correct? Do you need to replace the barb to the LPR as well as the 2 from solenoid and ram sleeve? Thanks

Only need the back 4 barbs

Just confirmed this in my last call to BLAST.

All new Timmys are coming with all barbs bigger but that is only becasue that is the ONLY size they now use.

However, and I quote, "you will notice most difference changing back ram and corresponding noid barb. You will notice a further slight change by changing front ram and corresponding nooid barb. You will notice NO difference changing the front noid and LP reg barbs."

But you will not harm anything changing them all.
