Sell me on the Azodin Inline Reg...

Are they good? The two reviews on the link below don't provide very much info... How consistent are they? Evil Detonators are $20 new, this is twice the price, so are they any better?

I like the one i have on mine. Should buy the whole gun

(Shameless plug)

I found it to be about +/- 10FPS when under boring using mid-grade paint

Where did you find evil dets for $20 new?? I've been wanting one.

Detonator>azodin, but the azodin is pretty decent. Rather drop $40 on that than $60+ on a new CP reg.

I had an azodin kp+ and the reg was the sole part that broke down on me. I had all the o-rings replaced but it was still leaking......i had to take it into paintballgear and get their tech to take a look at it. Turns out it was a factory defect, and azodin was like 'HEREZ REPAIR PAKET U PAY 4 SHIPPING, IN A WEEK KTHNXBAI' and just were jerks to the guy.. I returned the gun and got an emipre sniper instead. I don't know what other regs there are out there but for a days play i swapped the stock reg with a CP one.

Im finding this hard to believe. Azodin has awesome customer service, never had a problem with that. Did you deal directly with them at all?

And when you say "broke down", do you mean over time, or did it leak out of the box?

I have one and gave some info on it in this thread. It's not a bad reg at all. Fairly consistent, but not the best I've used. Also had a Detonator for a brief period so can compare the two: Azodin is much easier to take apart and service but seemed slightly less consistent. More slim-line design. The detonator is trickier to take apart, adjustment requires loosening and tightening of a set screw. Chunkier design (thicker in hand)

My perception of consistency might be flawed as there are so many factors influencing the final results. YMMV. Where are those $20 Detonators hiding? Would not mind picking up a spare.

Sorry, that had a serious lack of info. After about a few days playing with it I took a single shot and 'PPPPPPPPTTTTTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF FFFFFFFFFF' until all the air hissed out of the regand it broke down. I wasn't able to play for a few weeks because the air just kept on leaking out of the reg, even though i had tech do a full strip down for me while i was there and replace all the o-rings and such. From what I hear they DID send teh tech a repair packet from china, so I was kinda being lame there on my part......but the thing that just makes me angry is that even though it was a good reg they still gave me a defective one...and I know other players who have owned these regs or guns with these regs and they leak a lot, apparently.
