Clone vs. luxe

21 July 2013 - 08:55 PM

Hey all, im looking for a new marker and while the clone gt and luxe seem to be about equal in all regards as far as what I need in a marker(efficiency, feel in the hands, shot quality, etc), how does the gti valve effect it?

Is it worth it over the luxe once the GTI valve is added? I am primarily worried about efficiency and shot quality, the main reason for me to pick the luxe all else being equal is a simplified bolt system I am used to(I am a shocker shooter since the original SFT).

LPR Question for Spool Valves

17 June 2013 - 12:56 PM

Hey all, I've been thinking about this for a few days now and I am at a crossroads, I have been looking at the Reflex Rail, and the DM series markers, as of now the only spool valves I have shot and owned are all shockers(not withstanding a few test shots here and there). What I am wondering is, since if you run an LPR on the shocker it can only reduce the pressure for running the bolt by about 20psi maximum, and provides almost no noticeable benefit, is the idea of a DM vs a Reflex Rail the same thing? If the LPR on the DM is a major improvement then I can see why it is the higher and and by such a huge amount price-wise, however I keep coming back to when i tested LPR's on my shockers and saw nothing major in shot quality and efficiency.
I am thinking that because I am more familiar with the shocker bolt system there is some glaring thing that I am completely missing as to why the LPR is important, but I figured that a second opinion couldn't hurt.
