What is the general temperature that a spool valve marker will begin to not operate correctly? I'm gonna be playing in about 35 degree weather this weekend with my droid

There's too many variables to take into account. Type of gun, how it's maintained, how it's been set up, etc will all play a factor in how a gun behaves at various temperatures.

I'd go with a thinner lube, and if you get some bolt stick during the day, raise the dwell a little.


fuck yolo

Try to keep the tank warm as best as you can.

That has nothing to do with a markers performance in the cold...

I generally see a difference in performance on dye matrix below 45degrees

Yes it does. As temperature drops so does pressure, which will  effect efficiency in general. 

 

Look at this,

... which has no effect on the performance of the gun.

The gun will shoot fine, I am not saying that it won't.  All I am saying is that you wont be able to get the same amount of shots off as in more paintball-friendly weather. So to try to counteract this, keep the tank warm.

The couple hundred psi you MIGHT lose in extreme cold wont affect what pressure your tank reg outputs. You may lose a pod or so of air since the tank will run out of air faster.

I completely agree with you. There was just a misunderstanding in communication.

Agreed, getting a cold fill is actually better for efficiency, assuming it gets warmer out as you play the pressure will in the tank will increase. Where if you get a warmer fill and the temperature drops the pressure will decrease. So if when you fill the tank up it is the coldest time of the day, and it only gets warmer out you will get better efficiency, and in the cold you still fill up to the same pressure, so your efficiency should be about the same. However, if you're filling up inside where it's warmer and then playing outside in the cold you will get worse efficiency, so it really depends what temperature your filling at, and what temperature your playing at, as far as efficiency goes.

This. Great Post.
