spending money on a marker can be a big investment for many. it is horrible to do something to your marker and something goes wrong. now you have to pay more money to get it fixed or even replace things.

i have been wanting to post this for some time now. and thought i would do this now. i am currently working on home mods for the VS markers. much like the Spyder Pages.

as of now, it appears that you can do all of the home mods to the VS except for one area. that is the valve. do not try to thin the valve stem to be thinner. it is specially made for this 3rd generation valve design. attempting this mod can render the marker inoperable.

SO master otter... polishing the valve would be a bad idea?..

you could polish some areas of the valve. but, caution should be observed.

basically, inspection on the valve pin will show a tiny hole on the cup seal. then there is a tiny hole on the striker end of the valve pin just past the o-ring. an air passage.
