Bob Long VCOM - Which regulator?

I just received my Bob Long VCOM and will be buying a new tank and have a choice between a SLP or Ninja Pro reg.

Does it matter which one I use?

If both will work, should I go with the Ninja Pro reg and take out all the shims in case I decide to go with a different marker?

Ninja Pro reg and take out all the shims.

SLP is nice (have one), but personally a ninja without the shims works just as well and you can adjust it in the future if you need to.

Both will work great (Run Both).

Great. Thank you. I will go with the Pro Reg then since I can use that with other guns. Seems like SLP is only for Bob Longs...

SLP just gives you a few more shots when the tank is low. If you don't run the tanks below 450psi both should give same shot count.

SLP will work on the GTi guns and other low pressure markers too.

Since Bob Long guns generally are very air eff. that last 150-200 psi you get from a SLP goes a long way.

i like having both pro slp and regular adjustable pro with all the shims out or 1 shim so i would say if you have to get 1 or the other get the ADJ PRO but if you can get both get both

You won't damage the engine of the marker as the air is regulated by the time it gets to the engine. A HP tank will put more stress on the o-rings in between the grip frame and body (Leading to beraking o-rings and leaks) and will put more wear and tear on the HPR. I would highly recommend against running an HP tank on any Victory.

That sir is an excellent Idea ... given the Insight isn't a Marq and isn't a Timmy, it is like the red-headed step child of the Bob Long Line.

BL regs are rated for low pressure input. If I remember correctly they are made to run input pressures under 600PSI. Maximum input 550PSI

I know we covered shot count...but I am curious if an SLP tank would give more consistency on a VIS/VCOM...or if it wouldn't matter.

I currently have a V1 Pro that I run without shims, and an SLP pre-rotating bonnet and am trying to decide what reg to get on a new SL tank.

It will have no effect on consistency.
