500fps max (no tolerance higher) with .2g hop off
(pro-rata energy with higher weight bb)
Minimum engagement distance applies.

Gliderrider... no he's right... Phoenix changed recently.

BTW... hop off? Thats interesting... on a VSR as you add more hop the fps goes up, not down... heh

Usually though a hop unit puts friction on the bb and hence slows it down. At least it does in every other gun I've ever chronoed!

TBH mate Im not sure of the technicals. "I turn it one way and it spins up, the other and it gos down,Adjust to requireds setting " Has always been more than enough for me to get my head around without complicating the cogs of my mind neadlessly.

I am always right!

TBH, I've never seen anyone at any site ask to to wind the hop off since most bods have taken a great deal of time setting the damn thing up.

Anyhoo, the point is 500fps ABSOLUTE MAX, whatever jiggery pokery you do.
