Thats lpr pressure correct? Does it shoot consistently with no shootdown when the hpr is at 65-70? I mean, the hpr pressure is probably much higher then that.

The mini is shooting at 90 psi, and doesn't have an lpr. And a closer is what, two, three times the price of the Mini? I would hope that it would be better. The only thing that threw me off of buying it was the whole lubing the engine deal, and I've heard of various other problems. But they do seem to be a VERY nice platform. I can't wait for Bob's new gun to come out, I'll be buying one. Bob makes great stuff.

Lubing the bolt engine really is no big deal. If you do it once you can do it with your eyes closed.

Yes the 65-70 is the lpr. The hpr is around 200ish if I am remembering correctly.

Yeah, thats what I was thinking. And it's not that it was too daunting, it was the problems people were having with them when they were first released. But then again, you could say the same thing with the Mini and it's infamous poppet problems.

So lpr at 65-70, and hpr at 200ish, so, you need to have at least a consistent 200 psi so the gun cycles fully right? Or is it a consistent 65-70.

a consistent 200 (i think it was 230 to be exact) is needed for it to shoot at a reasonable fps.
The low pressure air is only used to move the ram back and forth. So technically speaking it will cycle with just 65-70 but don't it expect it to go a decent distance.

I'm not sure, but most other bolts are around 30 USD, so expect around that.

In a matter of 5hours I've went from not knowing much at all about the Mini... and not wanting one.

To wanting one... in olive drab.

I think it'd be a nice upgrade over my Tipp 98 Pro. :ninja:

If they are making a new 08 gun, im sure it will still have the same sleek milling, just an on-off, and other colors/kits etc.

But I highly doubt they'll make another one, the only thing I can recall Invert making for 08 is a tank, and some clothes/playing clothes.

90 psi is wicked, but Protoge beats its dwell, Protoge dwell = 5.

Yup, no 08' Mini, it's not gonna be a yearly gun.

And yeah Protege does beat it in dwell, good thing I have both :) .

Yes. That would be an amazing upgrade... I went from a 98 Custom Pro to a 68 Classic Automag and it's an amazing difference, so the difference between a Mini and 98 will also be amazing. I don't really have much of a concern for super low weight and tiny sizes and extreme efficiency, so my Automag is fine for me (and I got it for $100). But Minis are really nice. I don't know if I would like the feel of how small they are, but you never know. Just try to see if you can hold one (test shoot if possible) before you go buy it :D.

Good point.. I might not like how I have to hold that thing. I think I'm just wanting it more for the fact it's something totally different than any Tippmann, and it's really sleek.. hell its different from most guns.

I bought one (an Olive Dust :dodgy: ) to supplement my A5. I just had elbow surgery so I was going to need something lighter to play with once I get the ok from the docs. Using a 68/4500 and a VLjr....OMG...it shot ropes and was an absolute dream. My home field is more of recball field (vs. speedball/woodsball) and the lightweight and small size is such an advantage. I'll confess to not being that smart about dwell and such, heck my Mini is still stock. I haven't changed any of the settings. I love it. My wife runs a PMR and I've played with that too, but I won't give up my Mini for anything.
If the person on the other end of your gun does not walk away eagerly anticipating the next game because of your actions,
you have failed as a paintballer.
