Luxe efficiency test .. need help!

Im not new to paintball but im new to the Luxe experience
So i recently bought a 2.0 not long after purchased a full Pooty core which works great... today I did a Efficency test and I only got 6 pods and a hopper
out of a 68/45 filled to 4000psi
here are my settings

PSP: 12.5
Dwell: 12
FSDO: 2
Feathertouch: Out
Ef Rod: Out
and im using a ninja pro reg without schims so 450psi I think (corect me if im wrong)
Is it just cuz everything is new and not broken in or is that what you guys are getting in average ... seems a bit low to me. Thanks in advance

Sounds about right. A hopper and 7 pods is pretty typical for a full fill. What was your velocity and how was the paint/barrel fit?

luxes aren't efficient but paint to bore match with these guns is crucial to help ya on that

break it in more and slowly raise the dwell as that happens. then you will see an increase

I thought a higher dwell decreases efficiency? o.O

It does not. It has been said time and time again that is not the case.

In Chicago I was using the following setup and I was shooting 8-9 pods per game and had about 1200-1500 psi left every time and the fill stations were only filling to 4000.

PSP: 12.5
Bolt: Stock 2.0
Dwell: 15
FSDO: 1
Feathertouch: In
Tank: 68/45 Ninja Pro at 550psi output
FPS: Mid 280's
Barrel: Freak, bored to match

Check the middle oring in the can. It should be fairly tight.

I get a rotor and 3 1/2 pods before I get huge drop off on a 50/45 at higher rates of fire.

1.0 well broken in, sprung, 10 ms dwell.

Put FT back in and raise dwell to 14/15

does it come with FT in or out on the 2.0 and, should the FT be in or out for a smoother shot?

FT should be installed stock

FT makes smoother shot, but with a low dwell it counteracts the spring, and the gun won't shoot right. so dwell has to be at least 14

Luxe comes with FT out .. And I have the full pooty core and it says to keep it out + I don't think FT as anything to do with efficiency

The FT has nothing to do with efficiency. But, if you read the insert that came with your 1.5 or 2.0 that has the 2.0 bolt it specifically says that a dwell of 14 is recommended with the 2.0 bolt and the FT in. Ive ran all of my luxes above 14 no matter what and my first black gun ran perfect at 18ms.

If you need more shots per tanks check out my EFRod. It will help with a pod or 2.
