Im sure this ? has been asked way before, but can't seem to find it in the forum... So, here i am asking it now, what i need to know is what's the proper psi reg reading be on the stock reg that comes with the spyder rodeo... cause i keep tampering with the velocity screw and it still reads off 260fps on the chronograph, and i know it can go much higher than that... can someone tell me pls, thx in advance...

p.s. the manual indicates to have the needle pointing within the grn section of the stock gauge, which is btw 700psi & 850psi, not sure...

i sorry i dont know. just increase pressure and velocity should rise

polish internals, remove venturi and get a new spring for the striker. This should pump your velocity over 300.

What about the ammo you are using? and is it a stock rodeo barrel? If the ammo is small in the barrel, i.e. rolls right through, then maybe that is affecting the fps? It seems to me that too small ammo compared to barrel bore would be like blowing a straight pin thru a garden hose. Not assuming you didn't already know this, just throwing out ideas.

Get your reg reading in the green, adjust your velocity with the velocity screw on the back of your marker. If you still can't get over 260, try a stiffer spring. I don't usually have any trouble getting my velocity up to 280-290, which is where I need to be for our games.

Yeah. You should first put it around 800 psi maybe 750 if you want. Then Remove the venturi from the bolt (star shaped thing) www.ottersccustoms.com has a guide, this will increase airflow and increase fps by at least 10 if not more.
