do these really make your marker more consistent, or just prevent liquid going into your marker...or both? anything reply would help i guess. sorry for a stupid question btw :o

Velocities are more consistent because it keeps liquid out though it's main purpose it to keep liquid C02 from your marker. Less liquid means less inconsistent expansion of the C02 gasses -

the concept doesnt happen for me. if you tilt your tank the wrong way it will suck up liquid co2

The concept is perfect if the anti-siphon is installed and fabricated correctly. I never hold my marker pointed down. Even though I rarely use C02 any more I've gotten in the habbit of always holding the front of the marker in an upward position -

Yeah, with anti-siphon you can't hold the marker at any weird angles, so be careful with that or the velocity may spike to a dangerous level.
