Remote questions/advice sought

Hi guys. I'm in the process of buying a remote line. I have looked around but there doesn't seem to be a FAQ or any real info on coiled remotes. I'm curious as to if remotes are all the same...or if theres a real difference between brands(PMI Ninja etc)? I know what a quick disconnect is, but what exactly is a slide check.

slide check allows you to slide the check value back and this seals the air behind the value and releases the pressure infront of the value. This works great because between games your can take your gun off the remote without having to depressurize the entire system. Once you are ready to play again attach the marker and slide the check valve forward and it will then pass the air to the gun.

At the end of the day turn off your tank on your back slide the check valve back and forth to release the pressure in the lines and your done.

Its a must have feature for any remote

Id recommend a Pure Energy (PMI/KEE) remote line.
If you can find one with the slide check installed...all the better, since theirs takes simple bottle O-rings in case you ever need to replace one.

I have a Ninja one with Slide Check and it's great. I like it much better than the pure engergy one I used to have that was without the slide.
