Very nice Dre!

Had an opportunity to use my Crome at practice today and was very impressed. I thought it might have problems as it was only 22 degrees out when I left my house this morning, so I brought my bnib VEGO11 as well just to be on the safe side. Needless to say that wasn't necessary. Paint wasn't the greatest as I was shooting Inertia from Dicks Sporting Goods. Once I got my hopper reconfigured (Prophecy was having issues with sound activation) it was laying down consistent streams all morning. I was very surprised by how quiet it was, but the kicker was how smooth it was and with no FSDO. All I did last night was lube up the engine with some DOW33, and it shot great. I just tore down both guns,and I will say that the firing engine was a little dry on the Crome. Now I know to make sure that I keep an eye on that. All in all, I was very impressed. Shot great outta the box and with no barrel breaks. We were practicing in a teammates back yard, so we only had a yellow handheld chrono... so I'm not sure how it was in regards to consistency; however, I'm not too concerned with that as I'm tossing on the AKA reg once I get some more macroline.

My VEGO11 on the other hand... it shot great most of the day, but being it was BNIB and in my possession for only 24 hours, I didn't really have a chance to play with the trigger, and the stock trigger job was horrible so I'll need to play with that a little more to make trigger walking easier.

So if I had to grade the day in regards to gun performace...

Thanks

Yeah, I had a Prophecy "running" on my Crome for a short period of time. The gun is honestly too damn quiet to run with one, even on the most sensitive setting. I found the only way was to use RF, which is better anyways. I run a rotor on it now and it's a million times better than the Prophecy ever was, and looks way better as well. And shooting a quiet gun is so nice to have, it really is. Ah, I love my Crome.

I'm thinking of picking up a rotor now... or at least an RF kit. I like my prophecy as I can put the big nose cone on it, and as a back man I like having the extra paint to shoot off the break.

I feel ya, and the Prophecys are way easy to pod up than the Rotor.

Here's an older pic of mine with a Rotor on it:

Hey,

Glad you had such a great experience with your Crome today. Not sure if you have owned alot of spool valve guns. I live in New Jersey and in the winter it gets quite cold. After a day of play the bolt on any spool valve gun that I have owned always seems to be dry. Spool valve guns only seem to do that in the winter when its very cold. When it gets alittle warmer you wont have that problem.

Chris

I've owned my fair share of spool valves, mostly in the Dye family and two luxes. I've always used Monkey Poo, which isn't as thick as normal Dow33

Many people will argue which gun is truly "better" but I've held and shot each gun directly next to eachother and must say the not only is the Crome more quiet, it is also smoother. I traded an old Clone which was tech'd to perfection for my Crome1. The Crome was far smoother than the Clone.

Used you're looking at around $1000 for a Crome1.

^^^ Keep an eye on the BST... there are a couple in there. I was searching for a couple weeks, and mine took almost a month to get here from Sweden once I found one.

yeah i was there yesterday and had a lot of fun watched the last couple of matches and finals today online. I was very impressed by xsv but i knew that the chemistry and the experience the boys in blue had overshadows others. I am happy for both teams sad to see xsv lose but glad to see dynasty win. I guess its a little bitter sweet.

I was very impressed with the way XSV played. It looks like they might be back so to speak. If they can continue playing that way, it will be a good year for them. I was a little disappointed with the way Damage played, and was completely stumped by how Arsenal came out. For a team filled with a bunch of hired guns, they definately underperformed.

yep thats exactly how i felt about Damage super disappointing as well as Arsenal. Very impressed with Lasoya coming off of an injury with Aftershock he made some pretty good moves. Thomas TAylor is a straight up beast!

Thomas started out a little slow, but as the tournament went on, he definately came to life. Did anyone see some of the crazy stuff Jon Richardson was doing. Infamous was very bleh, but he made the games fun to watch.

Just tossed the AKA reg on my crome... feels nice, but I'm concerned about the clearance between the macroline fitting anyone know if they make something like a low profile fitting?

Hey,

Great choice with the AKA reg, There is such a thing as low profile fittings. They are quite expensive though at around 30 dollars. Over the years these are the lowest profile fittings I have used ,CCM makes them. Here is the link http://cgi.ebay.com/CCM-Air-Fittings...em230fa9 15a2

Might be worth checking out.

An AKA reg is on my parts list, need one for my NYX as well. Put a different CP reg on my Crome yesterday. I put one of the short ones on without the gauge fitting. Looks MUCH better
