You'd need the Thumper to stay working long enough to test it.

You know guys, I know times are tough, but really, how do you expect them to build a quality unit for pennies?

Normally a bucket changer = $20-30
A good reg = $80-100

You get both in one package for $120, not to mention the fact that if you want such a combo product, Palmer's is guess what? You got it, the only game in town. Is it a decent chunk of change? Sure. But is it completely unreasonable/out of line? Absolutely not.

Here's what I don't get - why limit it to only 12 grams? - I would think it would be a great option as an inline reg for people who use 3.5s or other sizes as well. Maybe that bucket changer part can come off? But most people have a bucket changer they could throw on a small inline and they'd have the advantage of being able to market it to those that use back bottle co2, or 3.5's, or sterling bronzes etc. Maybe it just can't handle high ROF's and 12 gram only keeps it to that?

Hmm, an extended stabby?

I like the sounds of that. Maybe that's the next thing they could work on.

indeed. peasants can stick to their normal inline regs. the $30 mark is getting tossed around - you can't even buy a used stab for that

I could see this being helpful for efficiency if a DSG could be modified to use it.

Me too, have been looking at making my T2 stock class and this would be amazing for that.
No having to change out the valve and put another in, just set it at what my normal reg is at

OH HECK YES!!!!!
No such thing as over kill on a phantom when every shot counts when in stock class.
