Has there been a decision on whether the maple leaf bucking is better than the new style guarder bucking?

Ugh of course they sell just the arm, sleeve and bucking for $18 after I spent $66 on two kits

For me, I'm finding the maple leaf works accuracy wise best with .40 bbs shooting 430.  .30s for whatever reason go all over, left right.   More testing is needed.

My guarder bucking also doesn't like .30s bbs with the modified rocket valve shooting 470 fps with 0.20s. I'm currently using 0.36 with a KM head barrel and it's super accurate. When I receive the maple and evo II hop up hopefully I can run 0.40s since they're orange and much easier to see than the green I use.

Anyone tried using the new evo II arm with the blue ratech bucking? Should be an interesting combination if you like to use heavier bbs.

Forgot one in the box, anyways comparing this setup to the OEM and Guarder, I can see why it'd be such a performer. The hopup has a more gradual design instead of the current setup which is more of a violent and suddenly contact with the BB. Also the hopup arm seems very sturdy and the flat portion can do nothing but help as well.

I'm going to wait until someone can report in saying that the ehobby set without the barrel works.
Gotta wait for a paycheck anyways haha

The maple leaf bucking is wider which provides more contact then the stock or guarder bucking. The arm is wider which acts like the m-nub. It kind of works like a r-hop/flat nub. By having a wider contact point it provides a more stable and longer back spin instead of just kissing the bucking's lips.

I've tested in the back yard and using google maps measuring lab, i'd estimate at least 180ft flat trajectory with 0.25gs. It could easily hit 200+ with 0.3gs as i has about 5 clicks to go on the hop up settings.  I fielded my lm4c today at my usual cqb field, flat trajectory to about 150ft, didn't have room for longer shots. But it was awesome to see the BBS flying straight to the back wall.

After showing it to a teammate he'll be picking up two, one for his mp7 and one for his lm4c

Just think, this is with a SBR barrel the same with Boobie (though he has a RAT barrel), imagine if it was a standard length RAT.

Does anyone know which one of the maple bucking this uses. Saw that they are being offered in 70, 75, and 80 degree. Thanks in advance.

The closest you can get to purchasing the arm by itself is the ehobby link previously posted in this thread.

Joemomma make sure you're buying the one in the link from akiraspeed and NOT AN AEG BUCKING.  If it's just the rubber that's for aegs, the gasblowback ones haver bucking, sleeve and the tensioner.

I can't wait to get mine hella sweating one. I'm just interested I'm see the results in person. Seems to be more accurate also? Any FPS performance boost since I'm in the threshold at my field limits as is.

I haven't been able to do range tests yet but the FPS did not change at all.

I ordered one through a forum member (I think we can guess who), one from RAT, and the ehobby set.  I'll post updates as soon as I'm back home (mid-april).  I'll be using a full length RAT inner and OEM KWA inner for testing.  But hopefully someone will beat me to the update before then :innocent:

I hope mine show up soon. I am having a hard time with my hop up and hope these will help. I put in a rat 6.01 inner barrel and the blue bucking. Darn thing only shoots straight every once in a while. Other than that its like there in zero hop on the bbs. Hopefully these tensioners can provide some more pressure.

Installed the new tension ears and my gun still shoots the same. I get around 100 ft then it dive bombs. I'm fairly certain everything was installed correctly. Anyone else had these issues?

What BBs and what weight are you using? What FPS is your gun shooting at?
