    Hey guys was down at CPPS this weekend training, and was finding my rotor was ripping apart the celtic paint i was shooting, switched to my prophecy and all was well, any idea why it would be doing this?

    Maybe the tension was too high for the brittle ball!? turn it down a little maybe??

    i might be mistaken but does a prophecy use a different delivery system (sound activated?!?) rather than a constant tension of rotor!?

    How much diving were you doing? Bashing brittle paint around in the rotor can break the paint on the mouldings on the inside of the top half shell, you can sand these mouldings off to help with that problem.

    Could you maybe try the virtue soft arm for it ? It's meant to be a lot softer on the more brittle grades of tourney paints.

    Definitely wind back the tension from factory standard as it set a lot higher than required for 10.5bps

    Good Morning,

    As some of the posts above stated, turning down the tension is the main fix for people that seem to brake paint in the loader on occasions. If it is very very brittle, hard diving can also cause this.

    If you continue to experiance issues after you have tried that then please email eurotech@dyeprecision.com.

    Thanks,

    How would i go about turning down the tension to potentially fix this issue then?

    thanks for the help :)

    open up rotor, pop out battery pack (with motor on) on the back are two screws, farthest right screw stick an allen key in and turn till flush with plastic casing.

    Job done, re-assemble.
