I have the dye rhino and 3 years later it is still kicking and looks almost brand new



Sorry didn't read the whole OP. I wasn't aware that there was a *new* 45/45 shape.

If the shape is way different than the normal 45/45, I doubt dye rhinos would fit

How much more efficient is the axe over the etha? And it seems like your set on the axe so go for it

In Topic: Tank Help, Slow Leak, Fill Nipple?

This is normal (losing psi), especially older tanks. Usually the grease inside the reg has dried out/gotten dirty and air slowly leaks out.

Try re-lubing the inside of the tank reg. If you feel like it, you can also put Teflon tape on the threads of the fill nipple and burst disks to ensure those are not the source of the leaks

If the fill nipple is such a big problem, buy a new one for $5

Empire, Dye, PE, and GI are all good choices for soft goods.

Just wait for pods to go on sale (i think ANS had normal pods for $0.99 recently), just buy the standard pods at a cheap price so its not a huge loss when one breaks or some jack off steals your pods


Cleats are amazing, you can easily find amazing cleats on clearance online and at some stores


IMO I dislike the exalt barrel maids. I have 2 of them and they are a really cool concept but dont work as well as one might think. The circular disk that collapses down as you push it down the paint coated barrel does a decent job of leaving the paint alone but will still pick up some paint and shove it farther down into your breach and then when you pull it back out, the disk expands and gets most of the paint out followed by a cleaning with the fuzzy end. But the disk has already shoved paint into your breach and the fuzzy end cant get it out.

I like the CP Advantage Spiral Micro Fiber Swab. When used with a clockwise twist as your cleaning out your barrel (and counter clock wise on the way out), I have had extremely clean barrels and little/no paint shoved into my breach. The micro fiber is very absorbent and does an amazing job. Have had my CP micro fiber swab for about 2 seasons and still works just as well as the day I got it

Now no matter what swab you end up using, there is no better way of cleaning out your barrel while in game from a barrel break and/or a chop than to completely take your barrel off and clean it from the barrel back to the front, but most in-game situations do not allow that much time to be taken so in the end, it is all a trade off. Completely clean your barrel and shoot straight but take a junk of time, or quickly swab out as much paint as possible and shoot mostly straight.
