Hope this helps!
Thanks Tim. Push them to release that front reg extender!

Noob question: what would be the advantage of having this feature besides cost savings? I understand now you can have a Spoolie and an inline poppet in one gun, but in a game or a tournament, what are some of the situations where you would want to swap between engines?

My guess is the difference in shot count between the two engines.

Its more so you don't have to buy two separate $1250+ highends to get different types of performance. In a big scenario game you want efficiency (poppet), and at say an indoor speedball field you want a spool as its quiet and you can fill between games.

In my experience, poppets always seemed to be more efficient, where spools always seemed to be nicer to brittle paint.

there aren't any. i dont think this is meant so you can swap them on the fly.
for x-ball/speedball i like spool valve guns because of the incredibly smooth shot. on the other hand, im recently getting into scenario play where i dont care about a smooth shot and instead want something that will allow me to shoot a ton of paint without needing to refill my tank.

you would run whichever bolt suits your needs for that day.

Do we have any idea when the ram upgrades and after market spool valve will hit the market?

And will they only be available directly through Bob Long?

Hey, as long as people still think that way there's no reason not to take advantage of it.

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.
