Question about manifold screw

Would the manifold screw being turned in have any effect on my shot consisinty or does that only effect bps.

Having it too far in will cause shootdown and you will indeed notice a drop in bps.

Found this out the hard way yesterday

You'll probably hear from some more experienced Luxe techs soon enough on here, I myself am a much much better Ego and Intimidator tech, so I'm still learning the ins and outs of my luxe.

Try this

1. With your air on and dwell at 16, back your hpr screw out until the marker will not fire, and then slowly turn your hpr screw back in until the marker fires a good shot (280 fps+) again

2. adjust your dwell from 16 down till you see consistency, then adjust your hpr up or down to your desired velocity.

Again, I'm not a great Luxe tech yet lol but step 1 works wonders with most markers after a reg cleaning, and step 2 seems effective for me.

Good luck!!

what i do personally is get your luxe shooting butter with the manifold flush and set to psp 12.5 or whatever you shoot at tourneys go out with a few pods and turn the manifold in from flush a half turn at a time untill you notice drop off then back it out a little bit and thats basically the best/smoothest manifold setting in your luxe at least in my experience id get good paint and a chrono though you cant judge anything with terrible paint
