Today, 03:28 AMYeah, I realized after I posted that the Etha and Mini are inline poppets, not spools. I went to correct myself, but we went into River City.... Figures.
The G3 is far from the worst in the G-Series line. The G3 was one of the last markers made by the original Dangerous Power owners... Who knew a hell of a lot more than Amazone (the company that bought out Dangerous Power).
Amazone Markers (G4, G5, FX, E1, M3A1) are all made out of poorer quality aluminum as well as other corner cutting methods. The eye plates on the G4 snap under very little tension when tightened slightly more than hand tight., obviously due to poor pressure points/quality control. The G5 is having bolt rub issues to the point it is gouging the metal from breech. Moreover the idiots at Amazone put a groove in the breech that makes another bolt engine from TechT pretty much impossible. TechT said they'd go back to the drawing boards but said not to get your hopes up.
Amazone also ripped off A.P.E. who had a contract with Dangerous Power to supply boards. Amazone ripped A.P.E.s programming and used it as thier own trying to cut out the middleman. They did a horrendous job. So much so they tried to get 7th Element boards in the Rev-is and FX's because they burned the metaphorical A.P.E. bridge. Now that 7e is out of business I'm wondering what the geniuses at Amazone will think of next.
The only thing the G3 had was bolt stick at the begginning and that was doe to the garbage DP40 lube that came on it stock from the factory. That issue has been addressed plenty with many recommended lubricants offered in forums as a replacement. pretty much any DOW33 lube works.
The only other problem with the G3 was the orginial regulator, when tightened too much the reg seat metal would compress because the metal was too soft. That issue was addressed with a v.2 reg seat which is red in color.
So I fail to see hwo the G3 was the worst in the G-series bunch.

Yesterday, 09:50 PMI'm shocked nobody has mentioned this yet.
A great way to beat the heat is by wearing a camel back. Fill half with ice and half with cold water and it should last you the majority of the day.
Playing full day scenarios that go from 7AM to 5PM like Oklahoma DDay, a camel back is a must and it gets me through the whole day without getting dehydrated.
Another thing you could do is not over exert yourself when you play. When you start breathing heavy take a second or use the next game to catch your breath by staying back a bit instead of running balls to the wall all day... Or simply use one game to refill, recoup and take a breather and go in the next game.

Yesterday, 09:39 PMMy field's limits are Semi 10bps capped... If you break the bps, or if you're caught ramping you'll be pulled. Repeat offenders are asked to leave. I think it's a fairly reasonable rule.
If that were the case I'd much rather use my pumps than have to hold back on my electros.
