Default Delrin Striker causes recocking issues

I recently was able to test out my new Delrin Striker and found that the gun has recocking issues. I've tried a few springs (both the valve spring and the regular spring), as well as adjusting the PSI.

The gun operates fine at around 400psi with the stock striker in there, but if I use the new striker with those same two springs it has issues. Both strikers are the same size, my only thought is it wants a specific spring combination that I can't quite determine. Any ideas on which way I should be leaning? Do I need to be using stiffer springs, lighter springs, a combination...?

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Try a light valve and a medium main. I have always had good luck with that combo, albeit with metal strikers. Another option would be light main and medium valve, but I don't think the delrin striker has enough weight for that.

Hmm, still no luck. The best I could get was to actually use a spring i had that was clipped at one point. It seems like there's not enough pressure going thru the valve to recock the gun. Hence why the lighter clipped spring almost got it working, though still wasn't doing great. My valve spring is already very light, not sure what else I can do here...
