In-Line Regulator? Best one out there? What do you think?

Custom Products. They are reasonably priced and they work good with any gun. I've used them on pumps and electros. Always very consistent.

Second choice would be CCM regs.

I'm happy with my CP regs, but I just bought two used Dye Hyper 2 regs and they seem to be doing fine as well.

The best one out there is the AKA 2 liter.

i have used WGP, CP, GOG, and Planet Eclipse regs (S3 and SL3). i have seen brand new CCM regs creep a lot out of the box. i look for a reg that is consistent, bottom line macro, easy to adjust, doesn't hold pressure when marker degassed, and easy to rebuild. AKA sidewinder's macro fitting is on the bottom, but not the easiest reg to completely take apart.

i prefer the Planet Eclipse SL3 regulator as it meets all my requirements.

I'm a fan of the Bob Long 360 regs. Easy to maintain and I like how they look.

CPs are nice for the bottom input but for the life of me I have never been able to get them apart for servicing (the 3 piece ones at least, the newer gen one on my T2 comes apart easier).

strap wrench and allen key/allen socket work well to get it apart, worked for me.

Palmer fatty..palmer stabilizer...aka sidewinder...aka 2 liter.

I use the one that looks best on any particular gun.

The input location on CP's with a straight fitting is by far the most comfortable though IMO.

I like hyper 2's

Cheap (used), easy to rebuild, fitting is on the bottom, fitting swivels, comfortable in my hands, don't have a piece of rubber that will fall off, has the same internal design as the sidewinder, can mix and match colors.

xSHADOWx was probably just joking, since the (great) reg on bob long guns today is an almost exact copy of the palmer stabilizer, and the (great) reg on EGO's is an almost exact copy of an AKA sidewinder, and the Fatty and 2 liter are both low pressure oriented improvements on both of those respective designs. Also the 2 liter is actually a lot newer than 1996. It probably came out in 2003 or 2004 or so.

Mine is actually EXTREMELY consistent on my pump. I haven't tried it on anything else though so see how it does with high rof. I scored it for about $15 brand new on Ebay; not a bad deal at all.

As for the best regs though, AKA made/makes the best.

I would gladly run a 2 Liter over anything else produced by CP, PE, Dye, MacDev, etc. in 2013.

AKA's products are top notch because they are OCD about quality control and tolerances. It's not a new technology to be able to machine parts to extreme tolerances; machine shops have had that ability for a very long time. Combine that with smaller batches and a much smaller, better-trained workforce and you've got a recipe for precision.

Well not to beat the drum again, but no, those regs aren't copies of the prior regs. They are just regs of a similar internal design.

i have never had shootdown with a detonator reg clear up to 30 BPS, my guess is that it would be reliable even higher, but thats as fast as my gun would cycle with its setup, and as for extremely consistant i've seen 289, 290, 290, 290, 289 on my friends impulse

^^Good to know. On many occasions I've shot 4 shots in a row that registered the same velocity. Then +/-1 with the occasional 2fps deviation. It's crazy consistent. That said, a good deal of that consistency comes from using premium paint, a slight underbore, and a squeaky-clean barrel/gun/all parts.

You'd be surprised how much guns actually fluctuate. 5 shots is too short a string to get a good measurement of fluctuation, around 20 is usually accepted as a large enough sample to get the full picture, and few guns/paints go below a standard deviation of 4 fps.
