I have a tippmann 98C and i want to buy a regulator, i can't afford a palmer's stabilizer, so i'm looking at these that i found on ebay:

Evil Detonator Regulator Black
http://cgi.ebay.com/Evil-Detonator-Regulat...1QQcmdZViewItem
WGP Ergo Regulator Black
http://cgi.ebay.com/WGP-Ergo-Regulator-Bla...1QQcmdZViewItem
Tippmann 98 C Regulator
http://cgi.ebay.com/Tippmann-98-C-Regulato...1QQcmdZViewItem
Paintball Pure Energy
http://cgi.ebay.com/PAINTBALL-PURE-ENERGY-...1QQcmdZViewItem
They are all under $30, which is around my price, i'm also open to other suggestions, but out of these which ones the best one for CO2?

All help is appreciated, thanks

alright well from what I saw the only reg that said it was able to handle CO2 was the Evil reg. So I would throw out anything but that one to start (a safe bet when it comes to CO2 is that if it doesn't say it works with CO2 assume it doesn't)

Then I would throw out the evil reg outright because it maxes out at 500 PSI and unless you have a LPK for your 98C you are going to be starving your marker for gas. If it even decided to fire at that low PSI chances are it won't recock.

The 98c is a HP marker meaning it performs best with PSI anywhere from 800-900 PSI which makes it great for CO2 since it usually is around 850.

My advice to you is to not buy any of them, and just save up for a palmers, probably not what you want to hear, but it beats the hell out of buyers remorse when you have a broken reg on your hands you just spent 30 dollars on

OK - let's get back to reality.

You got a 98C - exactly how are you planning on hooking this reg up? Via a lpr front grip adapter? If going this way you will feel the cold of the CO2 through the reg.


Back to regs:


Detentor is low pressure so that's out.

PMI regs are good but they are so full of o-rings that maintence is high.

The ERGO reg by WGP is the best choice here. However if you got no plan on mounting the reg and you don't want a female stab get the Tippmann reg.

By the time you buy things to mount an ASA regulator you'll be paying more than you would for a female stab.

BEST & CHEAP don't always go together! Save up and get a PPS Stabilizer. I have two and would not get anything else.

What do you need a regulator for on a 98c, what are you turning it into a speedball maker?

It has nothing to do with the type of play. A Stabilizer is a regulator that also does quite well at keeping liquid CO2 out of your marker. With it, you can set the operating pressure and it will never raise above that point. Without it, as the tank warms during the day pressure will increase. As the pressure goes up so will your shot velocity.

So, to sum it up it stops velocity spikes from liquid CO2 and keeps the velocity from creeping up with increasing tank pressure.
I may be schizophrenic, but at least I have each other.

I'd go WGP Black Magic, same reg as teh Ergo but looks better. I use a torpedo with CO2... so far its been doing good, but I have a secondary reg in case the torpedo fluctuates at all, so I guess it's hard to say how much is the AIR regulator and how much is the Torpedo

I got my 98 Stabilizer kit from this place. http://www.countysports.com/shop/home.php?...on=0&page=2

At $89.00 it is the best price I found yet. The only downside is that I got a nickle-plated mounting ring instead of black (I cannot remember what color the picture showed at the time). The Stabilizer is an excellent product and I highly recommend that you get one.

^ Agreed. Best reg for CO2.

Actually, a lot of woodsball sharpshooters are turning to regs for their tippmanns in order to get good consistency without having to pay 150$ for an HPA tank. Plus what does a reg have to do with speedball? This would make more sense if he were asking about an E-grip, but whatever.
