Inception Designs Pressure Testers - 3 versions

If you do any tech work yourself and you don't already have a pressure tester, or if you have a janky one, it's time to upgrade.

Use it to set your output pressure and to check for performance to ensure that the regulator isn't creeping (which can be very bad for a paintball gun and damage seals/solenoids inside the gun).

Easy "EZ" operation. Simply screw tank or HPR into the bottom of the tester and then close the side lever. Pressure will read on the gauge immediately with your tank. With an HPR you need to turn on the air supply to the HPR. Press the button to release the lever and degas the pressure gauge. Repeat to check for consistency or leave it pressurized and watch the gauge to make sure the pressure isn't slowly increasing (creep).

Designed to use the minimum amount of air from your tank as possible so you don't waste air/gas while testing and setting up your equipment at home.

Version 1 - Standard pressures
EZ Pressure Tester for paintball marker tanks and HPR's outputting up to 1400psi. This is our standard (STD) option.



Version 2 - Low Pressure
Compatible with low pressure adapter to check the pressure from low pressure hoses found on guns such as Autocockers and Intimidators to verify LPR performance.




Version 3 - Autocockers
Full set for testing Autocockers, that includes the Low Pressure Adapter and a low pressure gauge.




Extra pressure gauges are also available.

Pressure gauge style may vary from shown.

In my opinion, an essential part of any serious tech bench.

agreed. I've been building my own for years though. I add a slide-check to my setup to I can test the reg's recharge rate too.

Well that's awful handy looking. I'm in for the autococker set for sure.

Not that useful if you have a chrono, know how to sweet spot and feel for the cocking for the lpr

Really? You can determine the output of a regulator with a chronograph?

Why would i need the out put pressure for an autococker?

What about your tank regulator? Maybe you don't need to LPR adapter, but I've seen hundreds of tanks (some of every brand) that the output is far above the margin of where it should be. Most techs have built something like this out of necessity, but having a dedicated streamlined product is worth replacing a clunky tool if it is frequently used, as well as bringing an easy product to fill the market for those less technically inclined users.

Even on your autococker, this makes building and adjusting so much easier than the chronograph. It's better to roll up to the field with a setup that just needs a tweak to chrono rather than battling with different adjustments on a fresh build.

I will get one just for the LPR tool.

Ok lets say on the autococker. You set the gun at 350 psi without a chrono. How are you able to reach velocity without knowing which spring combination works best? You cant. And you will be messing with your set up at the field 10x longer. A chrono can do that though and i have absolutely no reason to need to know the reg psi when i can get to velocity with the spring combinations

I can tell you never tuned a cocker in your life just by you saying you can get velocity without a chrono but with a hpr tester.

As for your tank output. Im not sure how many times thats ever used in that manner.

The reg tester is really handy for getting your regulator in the right ball park after servicing. It isn't a must have or anything, but it certainly makes life easier.

Testing the tank is also something I have done to troubleshoot for people (primarily with the regulator squeeking on CS1s). As the tank's regulator components breakdown over time due to a lack of servicing, they can creep up to pretty crazy levels. I had a Ninja Pro V2 that had creeped all of the way up to 800 PSI that was set up to output 550.

That said, these ones are pretty spendy (although the do look super precise). I have a few I have made myself and also have a $20 Modern Combat Sports one that works just fine.

What the heck are you babbling about? This product has literally nothing to do with any specific marker type or operation, it is for monitoring tank regulator output pressure, which can go towards greatly increasing your shot to shot consistency and help you shoot deeper into a tank when you are able to consistently measure and keep output in check. Your example of using a chrono and springs to tune velocity is confusing. If you are tuning your marker and you don't realize how inconsistent your tanks output pressure and recharge pressures are then you can be the greatest autococker tech on earth and you will still never be able to normalize your consistency shot to shot. No regulator or spring can overcome a tank pressure that is outputting in a +/- 50-75 psi range.

So many tanks are advertised at a certain output pressure, when in reality they are far below or far above.

How is this useful? If I am able to monitor my tanks output pressure than I am able to get a more consistent shot, the most efficient tuning of my marker, and shoot into the tank deeper.

Use your example of a cocker. If you are tuning your marker and the expected tank output is supposed to be in the range of lets say 650 +/- 15, and you tune it to the perfect shot quality for what you like, but then you don't realize your tank is actually outputting 800psi +/- 100, your shot to shot consistency will suffer, your regulator will take excess abuse, and your marker will start starving for air sooner since it was tuned to such a high output pressure from the tank.

This is a simple product that can help fine tune a marker even further for tinkerers.

Ive used the same set I built around 15 years ago for awhile now. However, if I see the Inception booth at a big game or tournament I will probably buy one because it would be a nice spare to keep in the gear bag.

Tons, actually. Many of the issues dye experienced with the SLAPS ASA and the DSRs reg were due to tanks outputting well over their rated pressure. Tank reg maintenance is necessary too.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
