They do chew up air like there is no tomorrow. I run a 91/4500 on mine and its good for 2 maybe 3 games. They only run on hpa as well, last time I played the fields hpa went down and they only had co2 so no tac one. Otherwise, its just awesome. Just friggin awesome!

I can taken "empty" tank off my mag nd run a few hundred cycles off my Viking.
I am running my tanks down to 650ish. Switch to the smallest main spring. It makes a big difference.

X-valve comes with the level 10 anti chop bolt, and is the lightest. valve is made of all aluminum, with a high charge rate, meaning you won't get shootdown,
The next are the Rt and E-valves which are part steel part aluminum but also have the same high discharge. They are just a bit heavier than the x-valve. But don't always come with a level 10.
I would say,if you are not worried about weight, go with an RT or E-valve with level 10.
If you want as light as possible, X-Valve.

classic valves with a level 10 are good as well, but if you shoot fast, you can get shootdown.

The Level 7 valve, although not as forgiving about chops as the Level 10, is the workhorse of the bunch. This simple design in comparison to the Level 10 assures you a minimum of maintenance and fuss to keep it going. Yes, it can break more paint and chop if you aren't careful, but if the Level 7 is operating as it should and the user is experienced, it can be a very reliable and good performing alternative to the Level 10. I have been shooting an Automag for years with Level 7. There are some days (cold especially) when the paint is extra brittle that I sometimes wish for a Level 10 - just being honest. Most days when the paint isn't super brittle then I am as happy as can be.

The upside of the Level 7 - it is a bit more air efficient (from what I have read) and requires a slightly lower operating pressure than the Level 10.

And that's why I prefer level 10.
I prefer using paint that is more brittle, so it breaks at a distance.
This way, all the players with their modern guns, that are using brittle paint, don't have an edge.

I used to use a tougher shell, and I was just wasting paint, shooting guys and watching the pant bounce.
When I switched paint, my kill ratio went up. And I have made amazing long distance shots count.

I always hope for a good 6-8 bounce paint....a good balanced paint.
