TiPX general questions with HPA and remote

Hi everyone.

A friend and I are looking at the TiPX and had some questions about using them, specifically with a remote and HPA.

Googling the topic I've seen some owners having trouble getting higher velocity than ~250fps running HPA. Most of the search results are older so I was wondering is this still the case? I see that many of the posters are trying to use a smaller CI tank and would I expect the same results running HPA with a remote and a 68/4500 tank?

If you eject the mag to see how many paintballs are left, can you reinsert the mag without crushing the paint? Or is that pretty much a "spent" mag?

I haven't used a remote in over 15 years; is a slide check recommended? Does a slide check degas the marker but keep the hose pressurized? If I turn the air off at the on/off above the tank, does that degas both the line and the marker? Sorry for these basic questions couldn't get a straight Google answer.

Is there anything maintenance related an owner should know aside from the usual marker maintenance (things like "don't get grease on this part," etc)?

Is there anything else we should know or look out for when we get the TiPX?

Thanks in advance!

I have used a tipx with a remote and hpa and never had a problem with fps. best bet is to make sure you are using a high pressure reg, and as far as remote lines go I recommend getting a psiworx remote that way you have no slide check to worry about and it is one of the best remotes on the market. When you eject the mag you can reuse it the ball that was in your breech will be the only one wasted as it will fall out but the mag will retain the other paintballs and are still usable.

Thanks for the reply, a lot of good info.

Do you remember approx. what size tank you were using?

Also, what's to worry about a slide check? Sorry not too familiar with them.

While slide checks work, they have a larger longer profile that some don't like. The pro connect fittings are smaller and newer. This keeping your marker profile a lot smaller, the pro connect is also better. One button, no extra valves and such.

I concur with the aforementioned and suggest a Pro-Connect remote as well. One way to avoid losing the round in the breach is to rotate the pistol upside-down before pressing the mag release.

Thanks guys, very helpful.

Is Pro Connect a brand or a style of remote?

Also, I see now there are straight/non-coiled remotes. Is it all user preference or are there any noticeable differences?

Edit: Is this the same thing as "pro connect"? http://www.ansgear.com/Ninja_Remote_...emoteswptc.htm

The Pro-Connect is from Psiworx, the original remote coil with a push to connect fitting. Subsequently others have come out with their own variations.
