Ok ... I've read and read how good the Detonator ... however I just can't say it is all that great.

I have replaced the Detonator on my Omen with a Palmer Stabilizer and can see a noticeable increase in my consistency and efficiency on my air use. I have no idea what the Detonator was set to, but at the same FPS the Palmer is running 190 psi. In quick three to five burst shooting the guns FPS stays steady +/- 5 FPS compared to a +/- 20 FPS to the Detonator. In steady slow shooting the Detonator seems to fair much better with a +/- 10 FPS compared to the Palmers +/- 5 FPS.

Maybe the Detonator I had on the Omen was defective. I don't know but I can say that the gun works better on the Palmer now.

What has your experience been with the Detonator?

For the price of the palmers I would have gotten a Winder though. You would have gotten +/- 1-3 lol. Your Detonator prolly wasn't broken in yet. All regulators require a good many shoots to get them running consistently in the breaking in period. It's just like a car.

It probably was defective, maybe you should have it sent in to PMI to repair it. Then sell it.

I already had the palmer. I used it on a previous gun for the last year.

As for the breaking in... You could be right. I have only put about 10,000 shots through the Detonator.

Anyway, was just wondering what everyone elses experience has been. Thanks for the reply.

Smart *** comments not needed.

After I got mine broken in, I was experiancing a 2 +\- flux...I can't say any more, gotta love it. I would even rate it better then my Sidewinder on my viking...bummer the Det looks terrible on the viking, else I would switch it.

Your detonator must be defective, even if its not broken in you shouldn't be getting +/- 20... that's just ridiculous. I've had strings of 300,300,300,300 when using good paint with a good paint/barrel match. Normally I'm +/- 2 or 3 though with field paint with an occassional 5 or so.
