Kila V2 detents

I juss got a cyborg and im stressing over if i should get the Kila V2 Detents. They are $25 shipped for the holiday sale but it kind of looks ugly. Does anyone have a V2 detent installed on there gun, and would happily take a picture of it for me? I would like to see it on a cyborg before i buy it. -thanks

Who makes the Detents?

EDIT: Nevermind i googled it. As for detent i am gonna make my own concoktion, shocktech rebuildable detents with a delerin ball.

Just ordered them but from the theory of them they should work wonders. My main concern could be that the opposite polarization from the magnets could be a little to strong and cause a slight loss on FPS. But that is easily fixable due to LPR adjust. I just don't want to compensate to much for that. There are ways around that also by changing out the magnets for smaller ones and doubling up on the oring inside of the detent. I will post a full report along with pixs when I have time.

there is the link if you need any more information I can provide it to you. Just got off the line with Rob and he is a great guy to deal with.

How do you think just one detent would work? And just keep one of the stock detents?

i think it would, but not well. i tried doing one and one of different kinds of detents but differing tensions make adjusting detents hard. Right now i have one CP and one stock and its working horribly so i just bought a pair of the V2's

well you just can't use one detent since it is using opposite polarization conductivity. Meaning the two poles of the magnets are creating friction and it's that fraction that keeps your marker from doublefeeding.

If you only have one magnet then there will not be any polarization to counter itself rendering your single detent useless.

i dont believe thats true, i think its internal repulsion with 2 magnets per detent

Yah..one detent would theoretically work...just not as well as two detents.

I'm not sold on these yet...all they're doing is replacing a spring with reverse polarity magnetism. Sounds gimmicky to me.

That being said...I'll probably have the try 'em at some point to see for myself.

Josh11213 is correct, it is internal on a per detent basis that repel the piston away from the cap in the forward position. We make and sell single detents for markers that only require one detent. There are performance benefits to using magnets vs a spring:

Springs function in a linear motion over distance traveled. The patent pending Kila V2's with magnetic suspension work with a non-linear function in which force is magnified over distance traveled. What that means to you is less force on the paintball upon intial contact with the detent piston, but more force at the end of the piston stroke for a fast return, less wear, and greater reliability.

The adjustability of force (adding or subtracting magnets) is great if you need more or less force depending on the hopper you are using (force-fed or gravity), and other variables like the weather(cold weather = more fragile paint), or overall quality of paint.

The low friction rebuildable delrin piston can not be blown out of it's casing like a typical spring-loaded ball detent can. Internal parts can be adjusted, cleaned or replaced without having to purchase a complete new detent.

Springs tend to rust, weaken, and bind with dirt occasionally. No rusting, weakening or binding with the V2, just a "pocket" of opposing force we call magnetic suspension. I hope some of this info answers your questions!

Thanks for the clarification. I just got my pair in the mail and they are great. Thanks a lot.
