In Topic: Replacing 007 o ring on hyper 3 reg

09 January 2013 - 05:30 AM

I had this problem, here I copied and pasted my reply on a thread on PBN.

I found a very easy way of installing this o-ring incase any one else is having trouble. Tie a very thin string to the o-ring and drop the end of the string through the hole at the bottom of the stem, then pull the o-ring into the groove and adjust it with a ball end allen key. Then take an exacto knife and cut the string as short as possible. I did this and left a tiny bit of string on the o-ring, built the rest of the reg, aired it up. No problems at all.Still working 5 months later.

Thanks - I used a flathead screw driver and it worked

In Topic: ETHA/Etek 4 barrel kit?

24 December 2012 - 12:30 PM

I know it does fit with every shaft 4 front, but i guess it does fit the etek then.

But i believe i heard in a video on youtube that the part of the barrelback that goes into to marker itself is longer than that part of the barrelback for an ego.
Is this true?

Why don't you just email planet eclipse directly and let us know what their reply is? I say the because I called planet eclipse and the tech support guy was no help, so I emailed them and got an answer - that was for using the existing emortal board on an etek4.

In Topic: Leak on PM8

23 December 2012 - 10:57 AM

I have a pm8, as well. When removing the frame to get to the lpr, make sure that during reassembly the ribbon for the eyes dont get pinched, as that can cause some issues with leaks, that may appear like an lpr leak.

Also - u sure it's not the noid?

In Topic: Did I catch PBC-Rock Hill on a bad day?

13 December 2012 - 02:14 PM

Okay, I spent a lot of time sitting and thinking on this one for the weeks between when I last played there and now. First, I should've engaged the refs and owner more regarding the issue - there's no reason to believe they wouldn't have asked kids to chrono if we'd made an issue of it. Similarly, we should have made an issue of overshooting right as it happened and that might have spared the day. I'm not sure there's anything the limited number of refs could have done about the wipers or the kids pretending to be out, but I think I stand by social discouragement as the best bet there.

So, I'm going to try the Rock Hill field one more time and see if I don't have a better second experience. If things do start to turn sour, I need to remember to get the staff informed and involved early and consistently. Worst case scenario, I'm pretty sure I could still enjoy my time there without playing the woods field and just sticking to the pipes and mounds courses. I'll come back and update in a few weeks after I've had a chance to work it in.

I play there often and when I do get popped when I get tagged, I simply take it up with the individual player, and make it real clear that it won't be tolerated (rather forcefully usually because it drives me mad when it happens), and let the refs know. Honestly, it has only happened to me about 6-7 times in 5 years of playing there.

In Topic: Great Customer Service - NOT!

13 December 2012 - 02:04 PM

Because someone was honest with you instead of bullshitting you thats bad Customer Service?


Plus differences in boards is moot in modern guns.

No - it was the guy's attitude (which I failed to put in my original post). When someone calls me with a question, and I don't know the answer, I look it up for them, or tell them I will get back to them with the correct info - that is good customer service, and the way it should be done. I would never say, I'm not sure, I don't know and leave it at that... He failed to offer assistance. Hence bad customer service.
