the lpc was an extension of the valve chamber, air was coming from one end of the lpc to the back end. for reserve the air would come from the bottom and to the left.

The madman rocket valves were said to work best at sub 150 psi, but were a nightmare to tune and not very rewarding. I can't confirm any of this, it's just what I've heard.

I'm not sure I follow. Yes, the LPC was an extension of the valve chamber, but that's what all LPC's are. The idea behind them is that it takes a larger volume of air at lower pressure to propel a paintball to field velocities, unless I've got it wrong. That's what I meant by "reserve." Poor word choice on my part, but it's just the air sitting in front of the valve at a regulated 125 psi, waiting to be used. I don't know what "the bottom and to the left" would be.

I have tuned one, and it was troubling. I do not have a pressure tester, but I can to turn everything way down.

I could not get my rocket valve down that low. Maybe 250-275 psi? Below that it would leak. However my Tornado valve seals down to 200 at least I think? I will have to get around to double checking that. Busy with a newborn! The rocket tuning is a bit odd and time consuming with the filing and all, but not terrible.

I had a Spanky Warped Monkey Cocker with a 3:16 valve and it was consistent around the same, 180ish. IT was whisper quiet with a hinge frame but you couldnt shoot it too fast.
