Best Cheap Regulator for CO2?
Posted 30 April 2008 - 03:20 PM
Evil Detonator Regulator Black
WGP Ergo Regulator Black
Tippmann 98 C Regulator
Paintball Pure Energy
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

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

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.

So, to sum it up it stops velocity spikes from liquid CO2 and keeps the velocity from creeping up with increasing tank pressure.

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.

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.
