Its excellent, as far as how it compares to the rocket valve IMO its a coin toss. Bandit costs less, however it doesn't come with a high flow valve pin.

Thanks everyone.

Alright, here's another question for the LP Mod. I've read Otters pages a couple times. I have a Spyder Pilot, 45/3000 tank, rocket valve and polished the striker (haven't drilled anything out, yet).

Here's the question, will the regulator off of a Shutter work? I'm thinking no, because it's regulating the air before it goes into the expansion chamber. Am I right or am I over thinking it?

It would work, but I wouldn't go with a Shutter regulator, its not a very consistant reg. Since you are using co2 I'd go with a Palmer's Stabilizer.

I use a bottomline reg from an AMG and it works pretty well, here's what you need to ask yourself, do you plan on upgrading to a vertical adapter with ASA threads or stick with your stock VA drilled out. If you go with the Assault block (15 degree forward angle) or Trinity (15 degree back angle) VA then you'll want to go with a vertical mounted reg (BL torpedo, Evil, Empire, CP, Stabilizer, etc...). If you want to keep your stock LPC/EX Chamber and VA then a bottomline will work. It appears that from your last post you have switched over to HPA (45/300 tank), so I'd suggest getting the aftermarket VA and a good aftermarket reg. Right now www.firstcallpaintball.com has the Evil Detenator for $24.99 which is a pretty good price and the Assault Block or Trinity VA's are running ~$40. Since I'm changing the setup on my LP pilot I'll make ya a deal on the bottomline reg if you decide to go that route.
