Keep in mind that y0da's valve and newmatic's valves are pretty different in terms of their goals, kind of like comparing an AKA valve to a Palmers HP LT valve.

Y0da's valve is meant to be a drop-in compatible upgrade for high pressure unregged guns out of the box.

Newmatic's valve is aiming for dropping the effective pressure of the gun, in the same way that upgraded valves and bolts changed Cockers from high pressure to low pressure platforms.

In the case of high pressure operation and y0da's design, we already have a ton of flow to play with. Now we have to figure out how to stop the valve from staying open longer than it has to.

With newmatic's design, we want to pump up the flow and increase the sealing face sizes so that it can be effective at lower pressures.
