I plan on getting a new reg for my RL shocker. I do want to get AKA 2-Liter plus, but they may be a bit out of my budget. I've heard a few good things about the Bob Long regs. How do they compare in size to the AKA? Recharge rate? Any info you guys could give me would definitely help.

Edit: To clear one thing up, I'm not a huge fan of the Sidewinders because of the aesthetics. I don't like the way swivel at the bottom of the reg looks.

ive had a 2 liter, sidewinder, sst, various bob long regs, cp's, dye hyper 2's, etc.
honestly certain ones have always been consistent. i've had cp's that were incredibly consistent and some that weren't. same with hyper 2's. my 2 liter was nice, but for the money i didn't think it worth it. i'm doing a comparison video of the sst vs. a cp shorty because i swear people hate on cp's too much. great regs.
i will say this, the most consistent gun i've ever had was my geo 2.1 with the stock eclipse reg. with the worst paint it was still +/- 4fps all day.
-never tried a gladiator reg though, i hear good things.
i say try a cp first and if you don't like the performance, go from there.

You wont be able to outshoot most modern regs anyway so recharge rate isnt terribly important. I for one hate the look of CP and the fittings on BL regs is far too high. Maybe look into and Eclipse reg. I've always been a huge fan of their products.

I've shot a few CP regs. I wasn't all too impressed, they're good replacements but I wouldn't want to spend the money on them if I can find something better.

I'm really interested in the BL 360 reg. my main concern though is how long the reg is. A part of me for swapping out the stock reg is how long it is (including the macro fitting at the bottom) I want to go with something with slightly a smaller profile. I'm picky, I know.

I personally love the sidewinder regs. Plus they offer different length spacers to make it longer or shorter.
