Not sure about other remotes, but for the ProConnect 3 the only tool you may ever need for maintenance is some needle nose pliers.

Universal Fill Adapter - YouTube

Valve top o-ring replacement - YouTube

Main reason why I chose the ProConnect is due to how simple it is to maintain. I know the cobra coil requires a modified socket to fix the asa thing.

Thanks! Looks like I have some shopping to do.

Oh yeah I forgot.

Straight vs Coiled

Any differences other than the obvious? Do straight remotes ever hang too low and snag things more than coiled?

Did anyone adress the issue of what the TiPx needs? I don't recall them coming with "pro connect" style nipples but, rather the old standard "Quick Disconnect".

As for straight vs coiled- Does anyone even make straight hoses for paintball anymore? That being said, coiled ones are more popular these days since they tend to conform to your body while the straight ones stuck out more.

Further up in the posts I think there's a link to Hustle that sells the pro connect style adapter for the TiPX. Ninja still has both the coiled and straight remotes, too.

Thanks for the tip on sticking out part; exactly what I was looking for.

Psiworx PC3x for the Tippmann TiPX remote adapter - YouTube

I personally like using coiled as you get the length you need and nothing more.
Also, if you mount your tank horizontally or have it off center, you can switch hands with ease. Just something to think about.

Good point with the tank mount position. I was actually going to buy a horizontal pouch for my vest.

So if I center it on my back with the reg to one side, it gives enough slack to switch hands without having to wrap/switch behind my back or something else elaborate? (hope that makes sense lol)

Also I forgot to ask is it safe to assume that all pro connect adapters are interchangeable? Like if I have a PSIWorks adapter on my TiPX my buddy could use his Ninja remote with PTC and it would fit?

Yeah, as long as the reg is off center you should have enough slack to switch hands easily.

No clue if they are interchangeable. I remember reading somewhere that they are not. If anything, you could take some calipers and measure the two male fittings.

Looking at a few pictures it seems like the nose end of the male fitting is just a bit longer than the PTC.

Do you think if the male fitting was unscrewed from the Ninja remote's reducer/gun end part it would fit on the TiPX remote adapter? Just thinking of ways to save a few bucks here and there
