Springing for efficiency

So i just picked up a SSC tri-fluted hammer and a Phantom Parts kit. Im just curious to see what main spring people recommend for maximizing my efficiency on unregged 12ies.

Im assuming red main to compensate for my lighter hammer. Im just not sure about anything else or if my logic is even correct.

Any advice would be appreciated or if this thread already exists steer me in the right direction Thnx guys

Will AC valve springs work in my phantom?

Autococker springs are longer. Lots of people use them though.

The Lapco Ultralight hammer he uses is the same one that all the new fluted hammers are based off.

What springs it works with will depend a lot on barrel length and paint to bore match.

so theres n real ideal set-up its all trial and error based off what your running. Can you link me to different phantom valve spring as the kits only come with mains and a stock valve.

the cocker valves are def longer but im assuming i can cut down if needed?

Good luck.

No one makes them currently. I priced a small batch run but the up front costs were more than I had.

Cocker springs should work fine. Read B's stuff from NOG that I link in that thread. That writeup has gotten me a long way tuning Nelsons.
