I have an X-7 (which works great) with an etrigger. I set it to 20bps and was slaughtering my buddies when my cyclone just quit. Needless to say, I got creamed in that game. I took my cyclone off and stripped it down, inspected it and cleaned it, then put it back together. I saw no broken parts or anything out of place. It will work when I use the reset to advance it, but not with air. I have a 72ci HPA tank and will not let it get below 1000psi before a game. (because I know the cyclone quits working @ 400psi) anyone have any suggestions? I'm sure it's something small I'm not thinking of.

You check the tiny o-rings on the Cyclone fittings?
