At 285 fps it runs at 175-185 psi input. At lower velocities it runs at lower pressures. The LPR runs at 100 psi so that is the real bottom pressure it can run at. The only regulator that is consistant at these levels is the Sidewinder.

awwww dan.. you aren't gonna become one of those "sponsored" guys who only gives props to the companies that they are sponsored by .... The sidewinder is not the only reg that can be consistant that ~150-250 psi.. the gladiator will do it, as will the max flow, and the Centerflag vert reg, and i remember reading from AKA that the stabilizer will as well...

Actually the Max Flo has problems at that low of a pressure. I've seen them spike pretty bad. I've not personally tested the Center Flag or the Gladiator. I was going by what I'd seen at the field and read in reports.

The Sidewinder is a really good reg though!

As for the gladiator, You might want to look at this thread comparing the gladiator vs. the Sidewinder.

Based upon my own personal experience and testing, that tread misrepresents the gladiator. He obviously got a defective gladiator. All the gladiators that i've seen have instantanous recharge.. And my excal had no shootdown when i tried running my conquest straight into the gun at 200 psi..

Hmm, based on your personal experience... well that is his personal experience. How am I suppose to know who is right? Also from reading the other posts on that tread his findings were not atypical of gladiators except that he said that he thought that the flow rate of the gladiator was less than that of the Sidewinder. Some said that this is false but if it was then why for the slow recharge rate? No, I would have to consider his tests at least as creditable as anyone elses observations. Now if someone got a flow meter and mesured the two that would be interesting.

Well...I believe the max-flow CAN run that low, shockers and impulses all run at about 180 psi, and they rarely have spikes (all guns will have a velocity spike sometime ). My friends Imp has never spiked so far. I think the max-flow can run at that PSI, and well. So the sidewinder is it's equal. Don't believe everything the company that makes the product tells you...

i have to agree. the captain of my team runs his maxflo straight into his excal without a problem.

i know for a fact that max flow regs do not have an extremely fast recharge rate, my friend owns a shocker and a glacier at board, we lowered the psi to 200 and he put it on full auto, the think dropped so bad that the balls wouldnt go but 20 feet!

thats the fault of the shocker not the maxflo. a shocker will drop off on full auto no matter what tank or inline reg you are using. i played the gettysburg nppl this weekend with my intimidator running a maxflo set at 180psi with rate of fire at 14bps. the maxflo kept up with absolutely no problem.

take apart a maxflo and you will see that it was designed for flow. oh and as far as the shocker on full auto...why do you think people are making aftermarket parts to prevent shootdown on shockers? also why dont you see any other regs on shockers other than maxflos?
