Don't some Angels have shootdown problems?

The only time I have ever had shoot down problems with any marker are the very rare times where I am stuck using CO2 instead of compressed air, which I would never do with an Angel (I have with my 98C though)

Well when you get into high guns you start having the ability to really tax your HPA system.
Some guns are simply air hogs and really need a high volume to keep going...first one that jumps to mind...Shocker. They need a bunch o air to shoot fast. And shoot fast they can.

Then you run into guns that use less air, but really have the ability to shoot lots o paint. And if your HPA reg recharges a bit slow you will see shootdown. I rarely get above 15 bps so I have yet to see this as an issue.
But when we did some max ROF tests on Cyborgs we could easily see the cheaper built Regs strugle. It was that was noticable above the 20 bps range.

So...unless you plan on funding your paint budget with a life of crime you should be fine. Honestly, most paintballers rarely break the 15 bps range when they play. The exceptions to this rule are the guys who run a mode and really just want to see what the gun can do. When they see just how much paint they use typically the mode changes to a more affordable option and shootdown goes away!

This one is set with the v 1 programing so it shoots well over 15bps and I have not seen any shoot down with it yet. Granted I don't shoot streams of paint at that rate, usually I shoot a few bursts and move up or to another position. I will have to try shooting a hopper at the maxed rate and see what happens.

Well. I filled the hopper and emptied it in about 5 seconds using my HPA bottle. I did not notice any drop off so I guess I am good to go.

Sweet pickup- owned an Angel years ago, when they first hit the tourney scene, and always liked them. It'll still hold its own against the latest and greatest. Have fun with yours.
