Prometheus-inner-barrel-r-hop for Krytac

Has anyone tried this product on their Krytac?
https://umbrellaarmory.com/products/...r-barrel-r-hop

Here is a comparison between stock and upgraded barrel on youtube
https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q...0&&FORM=VRDGAR

To sum it up, there is no difference unless you use .4 or higher bb's. But the cost would be very high using .4's on auto unless you are using it for a DMR using just semi-auto.
Both stock and the upgraded Prometheus hit about 250 feet, but the stock hop was maxed out, while the r-hop was not.

I've not used this exact product, nor a Krytac but it is simply an R hop mod. They're superior to any other hop set up. It increases air seal, eliminates wear on your hop rubber and provides lift to BBs like no other.

I've installed several in my time and most never need any hop applying to send BBs to the moon. Typically, sub 350fps required 0.28g minimum for a flat trajectory. So their recommendation of 0.36g (on the website) seems legit for 400fps region rifles. The extra cost of BBs is usually negated by having a rifle that can out range and accurately tag your enemies.

Range isn't everything. The groupings, stability and flat trajectory are so much more ideal for the competitive player. It's interesting they're now selling these premade sets. Seems Airsoft is evolving again and soon everyone will have an R-hop.

You could just get the PDI-W Hold bucking, they work just as well as RHOP and super simple to do.

It was interesting in the video that the r-hop only seemed better using .45 or heavier.
