Is the regulator similar to the Pi? I know when I did my regulator testing way back when I was impressed with the pre prod models performance, but not some of the ergonomics or variation in adjusting.

So I can see how making a stacked tube spool will be easy to clean, especially for ball breaks because you can just pull the bolt out the top tube. That's great, I like it. But if there is a slot for the bolt pin to go into the lower tube, isn't dirt/paint/everything going to get into the spool? This happens constantly with both my egos, but it's no big deal because it doesn't really affect the valve. I once had a pebble get into that slot, and the gun still shot like a champ. I only noticed because it was making a weird noise. A spool valve on the other hand, I can't imagine it would do so well.

Even after I play for only a day, the oil on my ego's ram is almost black from dirt and wear from the bolt and orings. Seems like that would be a nightmare for a spool valve. I like the idea of this gun, but it really seems like cleaning it is going to suck. Not to mention leaks. Dirt, dust, etc is a spool's worst enemy and this spool is exposed...

Even if it is exposed there's no valve to remove and it is 3 pieces in the lower tube. So cleaning would actually be easier than any spool valve marker on the market today and would be easier than your ego since no tools are required lube three o rings reinstall and done.

I'm sure they will fill the gap to the lower tube somehow

Now that is a well thought out and legitimate and potential problem. Like Paul mentioned, you just pull out the spool, wipe down and keep rockin.

Before I just dismiss this like that, the interaction of that area and the gun is actually like quite a few other guns. The G6R/Timmy, Ego/Etek, shoot spyder, Tippmann, well go down the stacked tube list - ALL of them basically have exactly the same problem. In some way or form they all have the same action down there, and critical o-rings running with exposure to the elements. Shoot, the G6R/Timmy shuttle has very similar sealing dynamics, yet when you have a problem it is a drop out fix. Same here.

Macdev's covered bolt is brilliant. It keeps that area clean. In the future, and with James's blessing I might do that on some version. But like the list of guns up above, we shouldn't have any more, though truthfully, nor any less, problems then they do. I have gotten paint, shells, dirt, snow, so much rain I had to dump the air chamber, dust and related in there. Always kept on rockin.

And clean up takes a few seconds, just like your ego.

Good comment though! Thanks for thinking it through and asking.

I saw this and just had to post, no no no please don't do that, I can't tell you the amount of problems we had with that when my team was sponsored with the RX, I sold my RX and kept my 07 EGO which i have never had any problems with it. It was good in theory just not in practice.
Can't wait to see this marker.

I'll have to tell you to ignore Pyro's last statement, no offense, but the covered breach of the RX was my favorite feature on it. I never had a single issue with the design either. If the Torque will be released with a covered bolt in the future I may have to wait until it is released to pick one up.

You would need to make the connection between the bolt and spool...STUPID!! People had trouble getting the correct orentation when reinstalling the bolt...ended up screwing stuff up!

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
