Low Pressure?

What, exactly, does low pressure do for your gun? Performance and otherwise? Ive been told that you break less balls, but why is that?

low pressure is just reffering to the valve pressure and operating pressure of your gun...

low pressure usually switches higher pressure with volume...

technically you should break less balls in the breech since its a lower pressure higher volume of air hitting the ball...

Hmmmm it kinda depends on the gun. Spyder owners go low pressure for efficiency and less recoil. Also bragging rights =)

Yeah, I got a TL Plus myself, not sure if its low pressure. Probably lower than it is stock, cause I put a Pure Energy reg on the thing. How would I get my spyder to be low pressure....without spending too much money?

a good aftermarket valve will lower the overall operating pressure somewhat......mike

There are a ton of factors than lower operating pressure.

I myself am a fan of lower my pressure. My old impy ran around 120 psi and my timmy runs at about 170 psi.
