Should be right. Yourpbfriend said about 1,800 on a 77 and 1,600 on a 66 - hot and not fully filled - so numbers bit uncertain.
It appears that we lost nothing on efficiency with the softer, lower pressure shot of the Deception. The non LPR version shot 300 at about 150 psi.
However the "best" setting seems to be 290 FPS at 180 for the lowest LPR and the calmest shot.
So now spools have: less efficiency - weigh more - have fatter bodies - have lost any height advantage - need so much more maintenance/less reliable - hard to make one tube look as good - and can't be cleaned if a ball breaks inside.
