Default Ions beware...

^ lmfao at the title... lol!

I made some videos of my LP Esprit... Ions beware!

Video 1
Video 2

hope you guys like it, i only had less than 500psi left soooo i couldnt fire that much...

Spyder Esprit - 200psi @ 265fps <--(not official since i didn't have a full tank)
NDZ Valve, Trinity 15*, dragun reg, odyssey 12" barrel, shocktech 4" lpc, acp derlin bolt, modded striker.


I won't be able to rip until I get some air and paint, but not until i get back from vacation!

Thats cool when you convert your spyder to LP. My E-99 is set to 300psi and 275 fps. Has Tboard and eyes with ramping chip.... so ramping over 30bps is easy. Many other parts too.

I need to see that marker in a video with you showing the gauge before you air it up, and then of you airing it up and shooting like that. Until then, shens.

that's good. My Esprit was 200 psi @ 279 fps with Rocket valve & maddman springs, Trinity VA, superfly bolt, Nightstriker XL, J&J

It's starving for air and I can think of 2 reasons...
1. You're operating it on a low tank (I know...duh...lol)
2. You're running it juuuuuust above a recocking failure psi level.

I noticed your velocity adjuster is all the way in...increase input psi to help move it back out to the middle where it belongs.

edit.......and my Ion is 290 fps at 140 psi

you need to chrono it, even though it may recock that doesnt mean it is going to run at that pressure. druid is right, its about balance. you currently are probibly balanced at like 120fps. its no big cookie. my amg hits 72fps and will still recock.... thats maybe an inlet of 50psi. but it is severly impractical to do that. so what if you get more shots to tank or balls dont break, they arent going anywhere. do a vid with paint so we can help you out.

I personally would like to see the Spyder that ramps over 30 bps. I didn't think they could cycle that fast.

Opter...from personal experience...

at some point there's a trade-off. Getting the lowest psi isn't always going to be more efficient. I was lucky...you seem to be too. I'd say up your inlet pressure about 50/75 psi, back your vel adj out to half-way and chrono as close to 280 as possible.

Shutnut spyders can theoreticly cycle faster (44cps) then any EP marker... (Someone correct me if im wronge) but the only limiting factor in why it can shoot that fast is becasue of the sear and how it can only be pulled down to release the striker 20 bps tops....

Pretty nice spyder... i was able to recock at 200 psi but i was only shooting at like 150fps...

-15* look kinda diffrent but isnt a bad look.

My Zip kit will run 30cps but I have not really shot it because I can not get it chrono'd low enough to use. When I get back to tinkering with it I am hoping it will shoot that fast.
