So, I'm gearing up to get back into paintball and I recently acquired an Etha (a nice upgrade from my old Epiphany) which happened to come with the springless poppet already installed.  The previous owner did include the original poppet with spring, which was nice.  Now my question is, other than the vibration that everyone seems to feel/sound (and mostly complain about) is there any advantage one has over the other.  Is the spring one actually more efficient?  What was the reason for the change?

From what I recall the original spring and poppet caused reliability issues.

The spring would bend after a couple cases of paint and the gun would stop working properly. About 8 guys I worked and played with at my field had them, and they all had the same issue. Obviously lots of other people did too haha

The ONLY change is that there is no poppet spring to wear out. No difference in shot feel or efficiency.
