Every marker will use a different setting

It'll be too low when it doesn't fully cycle, has drop off, wildly bad consistency, excessive blowback, or a combination of the mentioned

100-120 psi is low
And you will need to adjust both your pressure and dwell if you get the TechT L7

And don't be sorry about asking questions

Dwell is the time your valve stays open
The longer the dwell is, the longer your valve stays open, and thus, it reduces the max speed your marker can cycle at

Short dwell = faster potential cycle speed
