Just picked up my first older Axe which has the Shockwave board. With the velocity adjustment, I turn the velocity all the way in and back it out only 1/4 of a turn and already hitting 290fps. With only having to back it out that little of an amount, I am curious if this is normal. Dwell at 8ms. Thanks.

What is your reg set at? The manual recommends having the regulator set at about 180-200 PSI and adjusting the back cap to until you hit 290 FPS. I like to tune my axe by setting the reg pressure to 180 PSI then and slowly turning the backcap out from flush until the velocity stops increasing. After youve sweet spotted the back cap i just adjust my FPS through the regulator.

I have my reg set at 190ish then do the same and adjust the back cap accordingly. I think mine is about 3/4 turns. Not too far off of your. Each gun my be slightly different.
