Just wanted to know what you guys thought about the rodeo virsus other spyder markers, like the Imagine,pilot, E-99. I have a rodeo that I put a electronic trigger off of a E-99 and a smart parts all american barell on it and have taken out the vinturi. and in order to get the 285 fps I had to regulate the pressure to around 500. should I drill it out to get more air flow or what do you think? and could someone tell me what the bps might be?

Well the rodeo with an e-grip is slightly better than most other spyder just because its got the reg. If you feel comfortable doing the mods to the valve and VA, go for it. Though the stock reg on a rodeo isn't really good enough if you plan to go low pressure.

500 psi is great!!! Drilling out the VA will get you lower.....
No way to know about the fps without doing it...
The bps is capped at 13 if you are running a stock board....
