No free tank covers...at least not that I have ever received.

What makes the Conquest better then the Max Flow? Easier to maintain. For HP or LP you don't need different piston and body assemblies like on the Max Flow. When the pressure in the tank drops, the output pressure doesn't rise, like the Max Flow. Asthetically way more pleasing then the Max Flow, (notice how much the NEW max flow looks like a conquest?) Better mounting system then the Max Flow. More consistant, IMO higher flowing then the Max Flow.

Gladiators...the new 04's are awesome...no more minor creeping problems. No more dirt susceptibility. (is that a word? If not, it is now ) as high flowing, if not more so then any other reg. The air line comes out the bottom, so it isn't in the way of your hands. Asthetically pleasing. EASY to maintain. Affordable. AWESOME Low Pressure Reg. (Don't confuse that last statement to think I meant it as an LPR)

Although I agree with the points before this, I don't with this. The MaxFlo is supposed to be designed to be pressure compensating so that doesn't happen. I haven't seen it happen with mine...

Though asthetically, is opinionated, I don't see how the maxflo looks at all like a conquest...

The NEW 04 Max Flow looks a lot like a conquest...well...compared to the old stacked POS' especially. I have worked on a LOT of max flows, and every one has pressure issues when tank pressure drops below 500 PSI. Also, if the reg is "off" when you fill a lot of max flows, especially from empty, the output pressure seems to change.

"susceptibility", i think we own the patent on that word if you would like to use it again please pay $1.00 every time!

the 04 glad is a dirt eater! it takes a big piece of crap to make it malfunction, out of all the ones we have sold we have only had 3 with problems (extreme dirt, i'm talking bolders!)

the conquest is rated as one of the best adjustables for a couple of reasons,

1/ built to extremely high tolerances

2/ 100% tested - we actually gas each reg up on a gun and check it on at least 3 seperate pressures to make sure it is the best money can buy. if it can't pass these tests it wont go out the door!

3/ it's small, light and looks cool!

both these regs are designed to be worked on with the greatest of ease so if something does happen you don't need to be a rocket scientist to figure it out and fix it!

hope this answers all you questions.

One of those 3 was me! Here's a pic to prove just how big the chunk of dirt was (the arrow points to the crater left behind):

like i said,"bolders!" i don't think there is areg on the market that could stand up to that! it is unlucky for it to get caught right there, 99.9% of the time it will blow past.

Mikey1,

The Cyborg manual states "Your Cyborg can accept air input from any air system supplying 400-900psi of compressed air (DO NOT USE CO2)".
