Default How do I slow down my Spyder Pilot ACS?

I am making an indoor paintball field that has a lot of close range shooting. I tested some Spyder Pilot ACS markers (and they are great, almost never break balls). But the velocity is way to high for close range playing. If I change the springs with the 32 Degrees Spyder 9-Piece Spring kit will this alone enable me to have enough adjustment to slow the velocity down? Or do I have to do something with the regulator or change the regulator too etc? I would like to get the velocity down to the minimum that will allow the marker to operate correctly and the balls will still break!

well for the velocity to go down put a hard valve spring and soft mainspring... and then work from there ... And if you do have a regulator .. maybe you would want to turn it down. But i would just say to keep the FPS unless your field doesn't allow it

Thanks :-) I will try the 32 degrees Spyder 9-Piece Spring Kit. Its our field, so we can set the FPS, but we are trying to get a normal new players to play so we need to slow it down so it doesn't hurt so much (many of the shots are near point-blank range). Is this the spring kit you recommend or the Shocktech? If in order to slow it down more we need a new regulator, any recommendations?

Thanks!~!

32 degrees spring kit is probably the best one ...
If it's a regulator i'd probably go with the boblong torpedo since it does well with co2 and hpa. Your gonna need to replace quite a few things though then ... if your intrested let me know
