Dm11 and Ego11

So I played yesterday for the first time with my dm11 and was getting about 3 pods and a hopper off of a 45/45 filled to 4k. It was around 35 degrees out and I had my lpr as low as I could get it.

I'm thinking since I live in New England and play in the winter should I just trade my dm11 for and ego11. Reason being is because of bad weather and I want better air efficiency. What should I expect in air efficiency in the summer with my dm11? More than 3 pods and a hopper? Kinda stuck, need some advice on what to do.

An Ego11 will give you much better efficiency but it will be alot louder too. If you want the best of both worlds check out the no BL V-com. popit and spoolie in one.

just remember 45-45 and 3k fill is inst too much
]

Why dont u go to a 68/45? and on 3k fill u'll get like 5-6s/hopper pods if tuned

try using dwell of 21 and a low LPR setting


but if you're stuck on your 45-45 and such low fills, I'd consider a better air effiecny gun cause 3 pods isn't alot.

your first problem is the size of your tank if you want to use a spoolie and need more than a couple pods.
I would get a 68/45 if you have the funds to. But the cold does affect spoolies efficiency. You should be able to get 9pods with the 68/45

that's incorrect. you will NOT get 9 pods, unless it's a FULL 4.5k fill even then you're pushing it if its like a 4.7k fill yes very possible the MOST he'll get is 8 pods max most likely 7 and a hopper with a 4k fill
