Ok, I have a Tippmann 98 Custom Pro with A.C.T. and my velocity is always low I can't get it over 250 FPS. Even with the velocity all the way up it doesn't even get close to my friends when his is low. He has a Tippmann 98 Custom. Please Help!

Man, you are getting help. Ekeboo gave you a good suggestion. Even new out of the box some markers have weak power springs. There is virtually no difference in yours and your friend's marker EXCEPT the ACT. This is a fixable problem. You were asked if you were turning the velocity screw in the correct direction, which is a legitimate question since we all know from experience that players have made that mistake. Now suck it up and interact!

What diameter paint are you using and what is the bore size of your barrel? Is he using the same barrel as you and the same brand and case lot of paint?

He has a blackcell barrel with no tip and I have a J&J ceramic barrel, using the same paint to 68. caliber visible impact.

Switch barrels and chrono.  If that makes no significant difference, you know the barrel isn't the culprit (which it probably isn't) and then definitely grab a set of Madmanns and use the red spring.  It worked for me.

Okay, Buck, A little knowledge can go a long way. Some things you may not know.

The fit of the ball in the barrel can make 50 to 100 feet per second difference in velocity (or more). Take two paintballs, first one a couple of thousands smaller than the bore; the second one a half a thousands smaller than the bore. With the same pressure behind both, the second ball that fits the bore very closely may exit the barrel 100 fps faster than the first ball that is a "loose" fit.

So two different barrels shooting the same brand of paint may shoot at dramatically different velocities even though the gauge may show exactly the same pressure.

Also, the closer the fit, usually, the better the accuracy.

Ok, I don't have a Chrono and will the Maddman's Spring kit help with anything else other than that? Like, will it upgrade the other springs?

The only spring that impacts the velocity is the main power (hammer) spring.

Don't know. The Maddmann Kit of power springs is my suggestion...about $9.

If you can't increase the FPS, it is a spring problem and you should get the kit. I assume you chronoed it somewhere, since you stated 250 FPS in the original post?

Nothing is for sure, but there is something you can try. The power spring rides on a rod. Disassemble and put a BB under the head of that rod in the pocket in the back cap. This will compress the spring slightly when you reassemble things giving more power to the hammer. Check you velocity then and see if it has improved. If it has you have found and fixed the problem. You can then either play with the marker with the BB in place or buy the heavier (stronger) spring.

What is the correct procedure for checking if the marker is leaking CO2?
