View Full Version : Buying reliable remote coils

So my friend has a coil but he is having problems with it, he has to keep turning the valve on and off to get co2 going into his gun. Pretty much its the problem you see in this video of the first hose. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txCUh-FPt2o&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fcgi%2Eebay%2Eca%2FPaintball%2DGu n%2DCoil%2DRemote%2DHose%2DCO2%2DAir%2DLine%2DOn%2 DOff%2DW%2DQD%5FW0QQitemZ110148073347QQihZ001QQcat egoryZ83044QQssPa

I was looking at this coil on this website, and I plan to buy a gun here anyways so im not worried about shipping cuz it will be free, do you guys think this coil looks good? If not would you recomend any others on the website? Fyi its for co2. http://www.paintballgear.ca/product_info.php/cPath/157_235_129_579/products_id/5082

Regardless of which remote you get, I would suggest adding a slide check if it doesn't already come with one...they are very handy...

My $0.02

quick disconnect is also a good thing to have.

I dont think quick disconnect would really matter to me but, what is a slide check?

Can someone tell me what a slide check is?

ill try to explain it. im not very good at explaining things but ill try. Slide checks are on an off valves. If you slide the valve the one way it stops air flow, if you slide the valve the opposite way it lets air flow once again. These can be used for co2 and high pressure nitrogen tanks. so when you want to stop air flow to your marker you will move the slide check away from your marker. hope this helps some.
