co2 regulator help! please help me!


co2 regulator help!
well, I bought an ASA valve to regulate co2 on my pb tank but it's not very "adjustable". meaning it's pretty much like tons of bubbles spewing out or none at all. so I'm looking at some cheap regulators on amazon and I'm wondering if you guys have any experiences with them.

please share your product review here!

Don't cheap out, ditch the paintball setup and get a good setup from bettatail!

Or Do one better and build your own and get the rig you want for a fair price and in the process learn all you can about the system.

Agreed 100%! you already wasted money going cheap with the ASA. Don't go and waste even more money on yet another cheap reg set up. Take a few weeks to read everything you can and ask questions. Then just start looking through evilbay for a good dual stage reg. I was ableto get a like new matheson dual stage for $40 shipped and I was just able to pick up a clipperd mouse nv55 combo off of someone on barrreport. So I have gotten a $200 setup for $80! Even if youcan find the reg cheap on the auction site and buy a post body off of some like bettatail you will be miles ahead!

This has been my personal experience and I feel many others would agree. I understand you may not think you have the funds for a nice dual stage setup. But save your money and be patient, there are deals out there!

How big is your tank? If leSs than 30g Id just go DIY till you can afford a real setup.
