This is primarily for performance testing.

What bucking and/or nub would you recommend besides r-hop/er-hop?

I heard from some people that the Prometheus hard bucking and Firefly hard bucking is essentially the same. Is this true? If anyone uses or has used either one of these, could you share your experience please?

PDI W-hold bucking and a Danger Werx arm in my BAR10 does wonder. Only problem is the dreaded right curve, ut im TDC modding my gun this after noon, so that problem is already solved.

I've got nineball and it's working great with shims (stock hopup chamber) for the arm and an m170 spring in me bar10.

Pretty much anything over 450-500fps get hard. I would have gotten firefly but I heard nineball was better. I also heard the stock bucking in the precision TM vsr hopup chamber was actually better than the nineball, but I haven't gotten a chance to test this.

I had a king arms bucking that leaked during compression test. But when I put in a nine ball bucking I had no leak at all with an m150 spring. I would suggest a nine ball bucking if you can get your hands on one.

I use stock TM buckings in my 545 fps maruzen L96 (fully up'd).

It's a myth that you need to use hard buckings at high fps. Soft will work just as well and actually give more consistent results in my experience--they just wear out fast.

However, I use ABB sleeves or whip my buckings, and soft buckings seem to conform better to the barrel. However, if I weren't to do this I think I'd get more 'blow out' with soft buckings than hard. Something to consider.

I ordered about 10 TM buckings a while back off of x-fire.org and I haven't had to replace them more than once every 10 games, though, so I don't worry about it.

I seem to remember vindi using soft buckings as well? I may be remembering the wrong user but I know there's a couple other old hands who prefer them, and probably know more about the reasons why soft buckings seem to give me better performance. Been too long away from airsoft for this young gun ;)

Where did you get the ABB sleeves?

Whip bucking= ? I may know the mod you're talking about, but I've never heard "whipped bucking."

Has anyone ever tried Prommy Hard and Firefly hard?

Btw, I'm saving r/er-hops last because I've heard the best results from them :) Saving the best for last, oh yeah :yup:

By "whip" I think he means something along the lines of whipping a rope. Like how to tie off the end so it doesn't fray. I tie a bit of dental floss around the end of my bucking for a better seal on my well mb-10 because it is non-upgrade-able and it's not a fantastic bucking.

I don't have to tie or put teflon tape around my nineball bucking with my edgi barrel on my bar10 because it has an almost perfect seal. Is the nineball bucking hard or soft? I could only find one model and it didn't say.

I was doing a little browsing and found this: http://www.airsoftretreat.com/forum...8c517a237d26e17df20fedf488913d0&topic=86320.0 Couldn't believe my luck when I found it.
