Etha2: Velocity Issue

Marker has inconsistent velocity or you're not able to adjust the pressure. Check the items below. Reference the manual as needed

Issue:
Inconsistent Velocity:
  • Battery

    • Make sure you start with a brand new battery as an old one will cause issues

    • Stay away from batteries that are rechargeable, low quality, or those that have been sitting for a while

    • Confirm the battery was correctly inserted, taking note of the polarity (negative towards the trigger, positive towards the front)

  • Air Supply: Verify that your tank has enough air to fire your marker

  • Dwell: Check your dwell and try resetting back to the factory default setting of 23ms

  • Inline Reg Default: Try setting your inline reg to it's default setting. Using a 1/8 inch hex key, turn the adjuster screw counter-clockwise (outwards) until it's flush with the POPS bottom body. Then, turn it clockwise (inwards) 4 turns

  • Inline Regulator Rebuild: If it's been a while since you've maintained your inline regulator, try disassembling & servicing it. Reference the maintenance page for details

  • Paint: Make sure you're using good quality paintballs & that you have a good paint to barrel match​. Check out the video below for a video example.
