Hi all I have a few questions for you all. Is co2 that bad on a cocker? Do I need anti-siphon...does that work well? Or do I need Nitro?

Co2 runs fine as long as you have an antisyphon, OR a remote, not both, if syphon is used with a remote, it will suck straight liquid. Nitro is nice, but it isnt needed if you dont play in tournments.

CO2 will work fine if you have anti syphon, and the weather is decent.

co2 will be fine. You don't even need anti-siphon, you'll just have horrific consistancy. Go with nitro as soon as you can. You're efficiancy will go up, and nitro/hpa is a much cleaner gas, (seals will last longer).

My take on this is...Depends on how much you want to shoot. My cocker on CO2 gets better consistency than HPA on the angels that i've seen so far (not many cocker users around here). We're talking about AIR and conquests, raptors, and armageddons. So far, i see no reason performance wise to switch. I run anti-siphon dual regged CO2. About +/-5 fps. I know it's not the best, but it's still better than the some folks i'm playing against. The problem from CO2 arises when you start hosing and laying waste to everything in sight. You tank will chill, and lose pressure (not a big dilly since I'm dual regged). Eventually you will chill your tank so much that tank pressure is less than your operating pressure, then you're screwed. Also a frosted CO2 tank is very uncomfortable to hold or whatnot. I'm usually in the front and don't shoot more than 400 balls a game, I have no probs with chilling, shootdown, nothing. It's just a heavier setup than with a fiber HPA tank. Good luck.
