so generally a lower PSi means higher dwell? can you have them both low and turn the back cap out? i have a tru flo delrin bolt V2 and the stock spring. i'm trying to get it to be the most gentle on paint. what kind of setting would u say is good?

Nice guide, Max. Good principles employed. I will second the backpressure being VERY important...that is central to the concept of my poppet.

yay, praise from lurker, now my life is complete

im runnnin outta lurker though. it sucks. i got like a quarter tub left lol. id guess i got another 2 months.

by the way, you really should go around in the shocker forum a lil more. EVERY shocker that ive let lube using lurker has had a 45-65 fps gain from various lubes. 33, 55, mookies, other stuff too. although they keep using too much and gettin some fsdo. *******es lol.

ive never actually taken time to do a full out tune lol. i need to just play with my gun some. learn a lil more how the dwell and backcap effect things. i need a good kit first though. my paint is way small due to desert. and im using a 91 barrel lol.

so? you shouldnt be going past 15 anyway. its worth it to use the blue. and if somebodies using yellow or red, i cant help them in any way shape or form.

i don't know of any tourneys that allow anything above 15bps so the blue spring is the best. also if you NEED to shoot above 15bps your most likely compensating for a lack of skill unless ur in the back yard trying to get the most bps award (not trying to be mean or anything)

i sometimes hit 16 17 semi(ive got it tuned so it bounces like a pros ego) and i have no problem chopping up at taht rate. i think its the lurker. in fact thats when it chops the least paint lol.(we has **** paint.)

not sure i understood all of that. your guns capped at 15 but you have it to where it bounces to 16, or 17 like a Pro's ego?
so you chop with the blue spring and v2 bolt at 16-17 bps?

set his psi to 130, dwell to 15 blinks(2.5 ms) and backcap till you hit 300 fps.
