Need a reg capable of 100 psi reliably

I'm building my nerf launcher and am in need of a reg that can handle 0-100psi and not spike too badly, the thing is made from pvc and i'd hate to send 500 psi into it, even with the relief valve i installed that would be scary.

The reason i ask this is because i've been told many times that a normal pb reg will struggle to stay below 100. I'm temted to buy a mini reg to use if anything. Also, i know the palmer stabs are perfect for that, but i'm trying to avoid spending 80 bucks on one just yet.

most regs from modern LP spools will be in that range. I have an old Ion reg that I use for that king of thing. works great and quite stable. Dunno if the flow rate is going to be all that awesome for shooting rockets.

Awesome thanks. i'm not so much worried about super consistency as i am worried about the reg dumping the max pressure into my launcher.

Do you have a dump chamber design or will the reg need to provide the flow to shoot the rocket?

dump chamber with a sprinkler valve. I'm sure the valve and relief would vent in the event of a failure, but still dont want to chance it, also built it only out of the 250psi max pressure pvc.

yeah, then just grab any modern spool valve reg and you should be good.
