Easy there sparky.
I am in no way saying they are safe and should be bought. I am just commenting about the overreactions and misconceptions. Sure I have had my fair share of micro line failures and every other kind of paintball gun failure, and it never quite equates to the way some people will try to portray it.
About that Droid that "Blew" up. That failure looks to me like a metalurgical failure. You have macro lines and another reg that should have failed waaaayyyy before the reg adaptor. Sure the reg on the tank may have been outputting too much pressure, but the secondary reg didnt do its job and regulate the air. Quick regulator lesson, as input pressures rise, the output pressure lowers. So if the secondary reg was doing its job, it will nearly shut off the air to the gun at some point. Most microline burst strenth is at 1200psi or less, so that is another reason to think that the reg wasnt outputting too high.

Yes, that is a joke ---->
GA's customer service may be stellar and it is possible I could get new seals for them for free, but it just would be a waste of time for me as there are other things about the reg I don't like. If you choose the Myth, you may get a good reg, but considering all the fakes floating around, the spiking problems, the 'problems' with the design of the regulator, It's just not worth it. I can't recommend them to anyone.

Number two meaning for "Explode" To burst violently as a result of internal pressure.

Anyone else actually check out the TMT Paintball site?
They just scream stereotypical Chinese company trying to make a profit making crappy knockoff's of existing products for an industry they have zero experience in.
All the while claiming performance and quality.
Usually after an American company gives a Chinese company a contract to make a part and later, like magic
five other plants have the same design and are pumping out the same thing.
Here are the regs in question
TMT PAINT BALL ACCESSORY (HK) MANUFACTURE LIMITED
HK..... so agg.

I just laugh when I see all of these things pop up. I laugh because I know people and companies are jealous of what Danny and GA have accomplished.
I know Danny............and I know he is PISSED............and I know he means business when he says he will "find" those responsible.
Danny will make things right guys. As he says, he cares about the paintballer. Cmon, his own son plays.
Give it some time and Danny will hunt down the bad guys. Things will be right once more till another fool decides to copy and make another cheap knockoff.

My brother sent them a pretty beat up reg (really scratched up from vice grips, all the threads were completely stripped) he bought off a guy and they fixed all the threads AND reanno'd the reg FOR FREE. You can still see some of the scratches under the anno but it looks amazing. Best customer service I've seen in a while.
