Tell me if im wrong but ill give a quick review...

This makes it so your cyclone feed wont use as much co2 or excess co2 the gun doesnt use? And they also make the cyclone feed work faster? Correct?

The website states that these components improve the cyclone's internals (operates even w/only 200psi remaining in tank)...I think the jury is still out on whether it raises the cyclone's BPS rating...

With tippys BPS ratings going higher and higher (intro of WAS boards, etc...), this cyclone upgrade is only the beginning.

I have been contemplating purchasing a cyclone...reading all the posts, asking owners their opinions. This morning I found a reloaderB for a price I couldn't pass up, so I guess that's that.

no cyclone in my future , at least for now any ways.

We found that we were able to make the loader work at much lower pressures. During testing we ran the A5 until we ran out of air. The result was that the loader continued to load balls all the way down to 100-150 psi. At that point the gun stopped re-cocking.
Apparently its used to help keep the cyclone feed loading when running out of air (had that happen to me in the middle of a woodsball game...argh).

Quote:
It makes sense that if the parts make it so the loader takes less air to work, that they also could make the loader work faster. We are not making any promises just yet, but this week we are working on seeing how much faster we can make the loader go. This week we will be testing the parts and maxing out stock parts vs. our parts. We'll have a video to show you.
They're testing to see if it goes faster. If it does, I'm definately gonna get one.

If not, I'm still gonna get one for the fact that it makes the cyclone feed work at low pressures.

Oh ok so if ur running low on your Co2 tank...it will work still ok...lol i been trying to test my A5 out but i been so busy and i have no were to test it around my house...i get yelled at everytime i go outside and shoot my gun lol.

I guess its better to know about the gun and system than find out the hard way tho lol.....anyways it looks like this is going to be a good product but its so new i think ill take a few reviews from people before i pick one up....plus i dont got the money yet.

If your CO2 runs low without this, it will stop working and you'll have to push the button on the side every time you want a ball in it.
