Laylax 150 spring or 190 spring? I need help

Hey, I have an l96 that I need a spring upgrade for. I already have a full metal trigger box because the plastic stock one broke, and I already have a metal spring guide and cylinder.

I cannot use evike for problems with payment, so I have to use airsoftgi.

The only two springs on airsoftgi I like are the laylax 150 spring and the laylax 190 spring. I really wanted the 170, but they don't have it.

I will be using .36g bbs.

I bought the utg upgrade kit to get the rod, guide, and a spring as well. But I don't think the spring is powerful enough to fire .36g bbs. I am out of town for 2 weeks and i ordered the upgrade set, and cannot test the power of the spring included in the set, but I know it does not give a significant boost.

So I am wondering, will the 150 spring work with .36g bbs where the stock spring cannot, and is the 150 spring the same power of spring usedin the utg upgrade kit. If the 150 spring is not a good option, I know the 190 spring will work perfect for .36g bbs, but I am worried that it might be a bit too high of fps.

Thank you for the long read, and I appreciate any help.

edit: I found a 170 spring on red wolf airsoft for a bit higher of a price. Still need help deciding

I'd recommend a 150 over 170. Most site limits, here in the UK anyway (should be similar to the US), allow a maximum of 500fps for spring rifles chronographed with a 0.20g bb. A 150 will give you between 450 to 500 fps, closer to 500 at the start. A 170 will give you between 500-550 which will be over most site limits, bolt cycling will be much harder and you gun will be firing 'hot', so it's more likely for other players to complain about your power which could lead you to getting banned from the site you play at.

I'd go for the 150 spring, a 190 will most likely destroy your sears. Any spring can propel a bb 200+ ft. If you're looking for range and accuracy, I'd advise you look at your hop-up unit and inner barrel first.

Never heard of the UTG upgrade kit. I'd just spend the extra money, it's not that much either. Just remember having a high fps won't give you high range and accuracy.
