Turning Down my FPS (way down)
 
Well i found a reball arena here in rapid city, but i cannot use my spyder tl plus and tlXtra due to the fact that i cannot bring the FPS to 200fps. i dont want to use thier crappy beat up tippmans. im pretty much bottomed out at 265-270 on both guns. this is the closest place to play and i was hoping yall would help. found a spring shim kit but would like to have some opinions. thanks again everyone.

Spring shim kit is to raise your velocity, you want a pair of good lookin' spring kits. It doesn't matter what brand, but plop in the light main spring or the hard valve spring, and I guarantee you your velocity will plummet.

Thought it might help

Corrected... again

wouldn't with a strong valve spring mean lower velocity because it needs more force to open it, and as it is stronger will have more force to return to closed so it should have less time open, making there be less air flowing through so lower velocity? or am i just completely misunderstood...

Sascha, you moron, he was right to begin with. :p

Harder valve means less velocity, as well as light main means less velocity.

if you want to decrease it it cheaply, cut the main spring a little
