RT with Cyclone feeder... Problems?

I'm hearing conflicting reports of decreased performance when coupling the Cyclone feeder with the response trigger on the 98 Custom. I guess the theory is, since both use residual air, using both together can decrease the performance of both, since there's a limited amount of residual air to split between the two. I've already got the Cyclone feeder on my 98c, and I'm tossing around different rapid-fire options, but I'm waiting to get the RT until I know more about this. Any truth to that? And if so, any suggestions on an E-trigger for a 98c, non-pro model? Thanks from a noob looking to get an edge over his fellow firemen...

You can use the RT trigger and the cyclone. but you do need a T fitting for the air line. But they both compete for the gas. There are two things you can do to help

One thing you can do to help get the performance back in the RT is to spring load it. This reduces the pressure needed to run the RT and gives it over to the Cyclone.

The other is do the QEV mod to your cyclone.

There are also a few good mods in my sig as well as the stickys

i have noticed a similar problem with my RT and pneumatic hopper, both run off of blowback gases, and yes they do compete for that gas, really the problem starts to manifest itself when the line starts to get cold, which is pretty soon with c02, im looking for a way to fix this as well

Spring load your RT and it will cut down alot on the amount of gas needed for the RT. This almost the same as the pen mod for the trigger in terms of parts needed.

Feel free to send me a PM if you have any questions.
