Bob Long 360 Regulator?

I suppose this is technically an air system related topic, and I'm not sure where else it would go so I'll ask here. I'm needing to get an affordable but good reg and I've always liked the Torpedo regs, but I noticed recently that BL makes a reg called the 360 which is comes stock on Marqs. Are these any different operation wise from a Torpedo, just with the ability to move the air fitting to any position? Thanks ahead of time.

The 360 reg uses a shim stack as opposed to the old spring style of the older torpedoes. It's a very simple design though still and it's a very good reg, one of the best I've used honestly and it's in my top three favorite regs. Easy to adjust and use and the ability to move the elbow is an awesome feature.

cool, I know custom products made the claim that shim stacks produce better results than classic springs. Do you have any first hand experience with that being true or you think it's jut a marketing claim?

It's hard to say honestly. I've used the old style torps and I've used shim stacks; mostly all my regs are shim stacks now.
I think just using the spring is more user friendly in terms of break downs and care as you don't have to worry about your shim stack placement or loosing shims. Adjustment wise for pressure, hard to say, I never had an issue zeroing in on the pressure I needed with a shim or spring.

Alright, I'm thinking the results might be more apparent regarding recharge and piston wear if you use a marker with a very high ROF, but my 2003 cocker hardly falls in that category haha!
