New 10kg+ spring

This came up in my eBay feed...

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/182313297912

Anyone tried it or know where it comes from?
OldNoob

It's an Aussie guy if I remember rightly.
Probably equivalent to the Black Tactical V2. He does a few different springs, can't remember his name. Probably worth a punt, there's a couple of very good spring makers down there, so ias this guy is getting them made in Aus they might be good. No telling what the actual rating of these springs is though, Nerfer measures are crap, despite the claims in the listing.
Note also no published baseline FPS figures and crappy cop out about "your modding" releasing the springs full potential.
The bottom line on that us a spring either makes more power or not, nothing else will change wether it's output suits the plunger size it's made for, additions such as sealed breeches and functional barrels only make better use of the gas charge, they don't magically make a crap spring good.

My finger slipped on the buy it now.

Will see what turns up....
OldNoob

Tell us how they are?

If just a jolts chromo ever gives us a good reading Smile I'll report back

Speaking of Jolts, I know it's not quite the same thing but I'll bring a Triad to test it in. It seems more accurate and consistent with the 7kg than the Recon so could be interesting.
Mr.Crane

Have you tried the spring yet?
I'm interested in buying one myself but I'm worried the 10kg is just a random number the seller has plucked from the air!

It's in my Retaliator. I'll bring it to GuN next week.

Performance is good but I need to do more testing against the other combo's I've tried (7kg omw/ 7kg omw+ 2.5 stampede).

At the moment I have both the 10kg and 2.5kg stampede spring in but I'm not convinced this is optimal.
Mr.Crane

Awesome, it'll be interesting to see the results!

So, semi scientific testing - just firing a number of darts through each combination.

10kg+ 2.5kg - sounds loud (!) - performance is OK
10 kg - pretty good performance
7kg + 2.5 - easy prime and what I think is the best performance

Think I really need to get it over a chronograph to validate my thoughts.

Aussie Springss

These are the Nerf Terf Springs, They are getting alot of positive reviews from the people currently using them. I'm considering to do a mass order if anyone is interested.
OldNoob

No fps figures yet?
old_man_nerf

I'm not convinced they offer much better performance than the 7kg omw spring but need to do some 'science' to prove it.
OldNoob

Happy to test yours free after GuN if you like.
old_man_nerf

Cool. I'll send it down with various spring combinations, etc.

Will pm you to arrange.
Northwind

Mine's on the way but sounds like you'll have it sorted before it gets here.
Northlondonnerf

I've got a box of assorted Nerf Terf Springs on the way in the next month with hopefully one of all that he has to offer, which I would be happy to share for testing purposes!

Drop me a pm if you would like to see them.

I will post when they arrive.
