Tuning Ego 10

Alright I recently bought a ego ten and I noticed that it's a hand cannon is there any way I can tone it down so it's smoother on paint, because I'd say for every pod that I shoot I get at least 2-3 breaks.

I got a Zick 2 and tech T hush bolt in it.

Also if theres already a page for this can someone link me to it.

Thanks

What are you chrono readings ?
weather , paint , bore to paint match ...etc

Its winter and a summer blend in the paint can cause that if the paint youŽr shooting is not winter blend

1 to 1 1/2 turns in on the LPR (from flush) is ussually what youŽll find
here, but you have to fine tune the marker before jumping into a particular setting.

I got a 09 (planked) with the same set up. IŽm running 1 1/2 and 9ms dwell

Chrono is kinda back and forth im shooting around 280-300, weather is a indoor field but not heated, so somewhere around 40-50 degrees. Paint is GI sports and custom blend (empire) I was told they bore at like .687 and I'm shooting the normal ego barrel bore that is .693 but I'm still breaking balls, and detents are still fine.

Sadly I don't would buying a cure 4 be worth it?

any cure bolt will be an upgrade from the hush bolt.

The 4 has a rubber tip, whereas the Cure 3 doesn't.

Honestly, the TechT bolts really aren't that good when it comes to paint softness. Even the "soft" tipped Kush still had a hard rubber tip.

You'd probably be fine with a Cure 3, but if you are willing to invest in the Cure 4 it's just a tad better.

Not so sure about that. IŽv been shooting a Hush bolt and havenŽt had any problems at all, but in My case I have fine tune my 09 for smoother shots


Unless you are deep into tournys IŽll suggest a Cure 3+, if u are into high level paint / tournys then get the C4.....btw , C4 is louder just to let you know

it's all a matter of opinion really. i have had the hush/kush bolts and didn't like them...my markers came with their respective cure bolts and i have kept them stock or back to stock with the exception of the DART kit for my 11. the amount of "quieting" down the hush/kush bolt do is negligable at best.

I have had problems with special blend. I have never been able to shoot it without major breaks.

totally right , its a matter of opinion.
I change it not for quieting purposes but while is does quiet my 09 it makes it shot softer/ smoother due to the fine tunning dwell at 9 to 10ms and the LPR setting (my reason of change)..... its relly smoth shooting marker if you make sure to match barrel to paint bore also

Depending on bolt you can lower the dwell up to 8-9 ms but sacrifice smoothness, although my 09 is running at 9ms dwell with a hush probolt and its very smooth.
Running a 11-12 dwell and a 1 to 1 1/2 turns in on LPR will be the numbers to try
Also, paint to bore match is key on this too

when you say turns in you mean from flush right?
