Arrow Palmer Stabilizer questions

Hey guys I've done some research and it seems like everyone has only good things to say about the Palmer Stabilizer. I own a Spyder Xtra and I got my 14" Teardrop about a week ago. I use CO2. My friend wants to sell me his Palmer for 60 bucks, he only used it a few times but hes selling all of his paintball parts. I had a few questions about the stabilizer I need. My CO2 trank is directly connected to the ASA, I heard that for a Xtra I would need to buy the MALE version of it. I don't run a low pressure setup so I guess I would need the regular 0-800 setup right? Also his Palmer has a 90 degree elbow. He said its for steel braided hoses which would be what I have on my Xtra. If I was to buy this would I need any other pieces or am I set?
Thanks in advance.

Alex

So are you saying this is a male or female Palmer's? -

then it should work. if it has the same threads as your tank, itll work fine, but you'll still need the bottomline to screw the tank into, and your stock hose should fit. if im not mistaken, the expansion chamber has the standard threading, which will match to the Palmer's hose elbow.

I dont' know about that, Snipe. Most Sypder bottomline threads are Metric or at least the opposite of normal aftermarket regs.

no, i tried it out with my victor and imagine. the offset holes have 1/8th NPT threads, and the inline (with stock drops) have the funky threading. and if you look at the hose, you'll see it has two different threads on the end. the only problem im coming up with is that the imagine and xtra use the same type of expansion chambers, so i dont know if the threading is the same or not. a good way to check is if youre trying to screw the hose in and its starting too have some resistance on it and/or looks like its not going in 100% straight, then its probably 2 different threads. you shouldnt worry about stripping them if you try it like that unless you force the threads together (made that mistake on my expansion chamber).

ok, i just got done comparing pics of the xtra and imagine, and they have the same hose. that means you'll need this to connect to your hose (going to the reg) and everything will work fine.

I have a Palmer on my spyder and I have to use macro-line because the Palmer has standard threads and my ASA has metric.

Let me see if I get this straight. Im just trying to understand this before I purchase the stabilizer. By the way this is the Palmer Male Stabilizer. Im will be installing it on my Xtra

This is the stabilizer and the Xtra
http://www.yourtechs.com/yt_testing/...older/pic1.jpg

Now I would unscrew the stock expansion chamber from the marker and unscrew the steel braided hose from the expansion chamber. The marker would look something like this.

Then I would screw in the Stabilizer into the marker. Would look something like this.

I think so far this is what you guys meant. Now I would imagine I screw the hose onto that little thing in the Stabilizer. Like this

But you guys said I needed a metric to standard converter or soemthing. COuld you explaint to me where those would go please?
Thanks
Alex

the metric to standard adapter would go from the steel braided line to the Palmers. You see the Exp chamber is metric threaded so the line is metric threaded to match it, the Palmers is standard threaded thus the reason to have a metric to standard adapter.

Oh ok thanks for the info. One last thing, he told me that even though hes barely used the stabilizer hes had it for maybe 5 to 6 years. Do you think this may be an outdated version of the stabilizer used now? I think they look the same from the outside but maybe something in the inside has changed. You guys know if any changes have taken place with the stabilizer Male version?
