dye markers don't have a lot of problems. if they did they would have fixed them over all these years. they shoot great.
i've always been a spool valve fan and up until I got my victory that's what I always went back to. the victory shoots extremely smooth and gets great efficiency. I ran an efficiency test last month and got 1800 shots off of a 68/4500 filled to 4200psi with outside temp at 40 degrees.
best thing now is the Victory Spool Engine is out and it supposedly shoots smoother than the poppit engine so that would put it in the luxe/clone class.
