i was thinkin of gettin a gadget grip and was wondering if its really worth $50. does the hose that connects the max-flow and the grip ever get in the way.would a KAPP gas though grip be better?

The Gaget Grip or Kapp gas through are both fine. I have the Gaget Grip and haven't noticed the hose being in the way at all. Either one works great, the choice is yours However, if you haven't bought your Impulse yet (don't know if you have) you might want to consider upgrading to a vertical maxflow.. it's the basically the same price as buying a gaget grip. You can find a Impulse with a vertical maxflow for $450 at www.e-paintballoutlet.com (I know the site doesn't look great, but they are great people to work with)

re

i just got my drop forward... and I have the smart parts gadget grip. Nothing will work right w/the barel plug in the grip.

I know the parana has the port on the bottom, that probably wont work either... So check the dropforward before you buy the grip.

i have a gadget grip on my impulse and the hose never gets in the way because where the air goes in is right in front of the trigger frame so you would not hold the gun there anyway. As for the $50, seems kind of high but well worth the price of holding onto a sturdy forgrip instead of the hose.

i have a gadget grip on my impulse and the hose never gets in my way or ever even bothers me.
as for the $50.. i dont think that its really worth that.. i have never tried the KAPP one but for the $$ i would say get a KAPP gas through grip.. they are cheaper and i think they look cool.. heh.
for a good price on the KAPP gas through grips go to:
www.e-paintballoutlet.com
i think they sell them there for $26
hope that helps

i would think u could probably use a gadget grip on a spyder.. like im pretty sure all verticle adaptors are the same thread so i would bet it can easily be done.. am i wrong here ppl? but u have to have a verticle adapter mind u..dont get me wrong there but it should by all means work
i might just try it sometime on a friend of mine's spyder and get back to ya hehe..

Talking Just the obvious..

Kingman, to the best of my knowledge, is a marker with Japanese decent.(metric threads) SmartParts is a domestic company.(sae threads) I do not think these will work together. Just going off of the obvious guys.

You might be able to use it on a spyder, I know the screws on spyders were metric, but im not sure about the gas inlet, if not, maybe some teflon tape or loc tight would make it work fine.

Talking Gadget Grip is fine

I've been using one since i got my imp. Allows for better balance when u hold the gun. I have had no problems with the line getting in the way.IMHO I'd go for the vert-maxflo or the Eclipse FRM instead tho.

I think the threads of the vertical adapter are the same than all the other guns, because if it was not, I would not be able to screw my co2 bottle in it (I have a compact 2K).
