for me with a hard spring, the valve will not stay open for a long time, and it will be hard to open it. if she dont stay open for a long time, the air flow will not be big.
right. Change to a soft spring
with a soft spring, the stricker will have less "power" than with a hard spring to open the valve.
right. change to a medium spring or the hard spring. Turn your velocity adjuster to the mid-point...half in, half out. Lock it (if you can)
so i dont understand how it can be the best setup for a lot of people.
what works for me may not work for you, chubbz, vike or anyone else on the planet. The key is to test your set up over a chronograph and determine on 'your own'...what's the best set up. You need to assess what YOUR marker can do with the mods you do to it.
someone can explain me?

LOL...it didn't start out that way. I originally just enlarging the holes one drill bit at a time but had recocking issues until I got to the point of "well, I may as well as remove it all" and now it works. I can't explain it any better than that. Yeah, I think I got the highest flowing VA on the East Coast...lol...
I suggest to anyone doing this mod, start small. Test. Go a little bigger. test. Keep going until it works.

Well it's a good thing I bought a rebuild kit with the valve, I'm going to save it until I try the whole VA thing.

One of the first links you gave me was the Sundragon site and it said that it's a good starting point to have the valve about the same length as the stock one. So I'll keep the current setup for now until I change things.


Edit:

For future reference, which VAs are best for this application, at a decent price?


Thanks
