Quoted for truth.

PDI 190 is advertised on Ehobby as putting out a max FPS of 410? I don't think so.

Like Stalker said the 150% that is shorter and brownish was putting out 350-360 FPS and the black I've chronied at around 415 FPS.

There is nothing wrong with PDI springs, they last and are consistant, you just take a gamble on what you will get in the PDI package.

I still think a 190% spring will be give you an insanely high FPS
