EGO 06, 200 shots almost 1000 PSI?

I am rather new to EGOs but this is an 06 version that was really never used much, maybe 10 games total. I blew my knee out early in the 06 season and now I am getting back into the swing of things.

Where should I check first if I physically hear no leaks? QEVs?

I don't recal getting this bad of efficanty from any of my previous markers. If I go through a hopper, and 3 pods I'm under 1500PSI.

Any help would be greatful, thanks

Check your dwell and your pressure. You can raise your pressure and lower your dwell to get better efficiency. But if you want to check for leaks, I would just reccomend cleaning and lubing the whole gun and o-rings. Make sure your HPR and LPR are working properly.

I had my 45/45 fill to 3000, I'll go check the dwell and other settings.

I ran out of air testing everything, but the dwell was 9.0 which seems WAY high, so I dropped it to around 5 and upped the pressure a little. We'll just have to see. I did re-lube everything, but I'll repost if I'm still having the problem.

No...raise your dwell back up to nine. They run at 10 stock.

Doesn't sound like a bad idea, it's be awhile since I've touched the settings back to default. Reset and that'll show the real test.

ok you started with a 45ci filled to 3000
and you got a hopper and 3 pods off it and had 1500 fill left over
thats 620 balls at that rate you would get 1000 balls or so off of a 45ci filled to 3000 thats not so bad ,also many people like to brag about how low the dwell on there gun will go , it is really just a tuning aspect(yes i understand it affects eff. if it is way off) all guns are a bit different. if i was to drop my dwell to 9 my 07 gets VERY inconsistent.
so you would be better off upping the dwell and lowering hpr pressure
putting the lpr to flush to 1 turn in .then get to a chrono and fine tune dwell and hpr.this tune will make for a quieter and more consistent ego

....so you'd be getting about 900 or so shots from a 45/45, with a full 4500psi fill....that's not really that bad
