Thanks for posting the pressure info. Was actually wondering about that.

My question is when are customers actually going to receive the fancy case and stuff BLAST posted on their Facebook page almost a month ago!

Yeah, BLAST said they had shipped a few out. Guess you got them. The bulk of them are apparently on their way to BLAST, but must be on a slow boat from China.

It'll take some time to get quantities, but they are coming. And they are worth the wait.

Good stuff to know, thanks! I just got my Ripper VIS at the end of last week and had it at 65/165 with a dwell of 6 (because that's what the SC typically ran) to shoot 285 +/- 1 or 2. Will bump the dwell up a couple, re-chrono and adjust as necessary.

good job, Tim
thank you

I have two questions to ask about VIS,I would be very grateful if you could help me.

How do I understand if I have to set 8 or 11 dwell on a spool engine? Are there any criteria?

And a second question: Does low lpr (40-50) make your spool more gentle on paint? I am wondering how to tune it properly to play in cold temperature conditions (crappy paint + cold weather = a lot of ball breaks)

Typically Higher Dwell means lower pressures (Specifically LPR), which means smoother shots. Lower Pressures also slow down the bolt slight, which make it more gentle on paint. The main reason to lower your pressures is to smooth out the gun and make it more efficient.

Agree, this is exactly what I needed. I had mine at 60 lpr and 155 on the hpr dwell 6. Shot good but loud and fsdo every time after sitting for more than 5 min. Raised my lpr to 65 and dwell of 8 and much smoother and quieter.

Thanks Tim

Colder weather will cause the range. I played in 17 degrees a few weeks ago and had fsdo caused by the cold. Bumping the dwell is a simple solution, hence the range.

If your lpr pressure is too low, the bolt may not cycle all the way causing it to chop paint.

Monkeypoo is most similar to a Dow33/light oil mix

For what it's worth, after bumping the dwell from 6 to 9 and installing my better gauges, I'm at 68/163/9 with the new poppet engine to shoot 285. The engine has maybe 6-7 pods through it.

Between how well it and the VCOM both shoot, I'm a very happy camper.

And what happens if I set dwell higher than 11 ms?
For example dwell = 12 13 14 ms?
Besides the gun being less efficient and bolt cycling 2-3 ms longer?

I use Pathogen Super Grease or Monkey Poo on my VIS engines with great results. I would only use Dow 55 on the old SC engine and Dow 33 or equivalent grease on the Vcom spool and VIS engine.

Is the VIS and VCOM the same gun? Do they share the same engines? Do they get the same efficiency?
