    I heard that a new hopup bucking helps to increase the consitancy of your shooting for little money. I have a stock JG G36K, what brand and which one should I buy? How do soft, hard or very hard buckings effect the shooting?

    Brands? Madbull, Guarder, Systema, Prometheus

    I've used all with success. Sometimes you have to test different ones, though.
    My UMG does great with Madbull, my P90 hates Madbull but loves Guarder, my ICS likes Systema and Madbull but not Guarder. I know, it's wierd...

    As for hard vs. soft, hard buckings are for higher FPS setups (350+), soft buckings are for sub-350 FPS. This is a general rule of thumb, though. Some have other theories, but this appears to be fairly common accepted school of thought. I run hard and 60-70% buckings in most all my guns.

    Sparky has pretty much summed it up but he didnt mention the amazing brand that is FIREFLY!!! By far the best, it uses a V shaped hop and puts backspin on form several angles. However they are hard to find D:

    But whatever. I use the guarder 70% and I am very pleased. I also hear the systema bucking is even better. Prommy buckings are supposed to be amazing, but the problem is with the hard one, its too hard. Unless you tephlon tape the hop up, a lot of people have seal issues. But its an easy fix.

    I just got a new hop-up bucking and I'm loving it. It's a custom made one that is much easier to install (compared to the custom made R-Hop). It's called the Tru-Hop. I highly recommend it!

    I didn't even see that, haha. Just googled about buckings and saw this post without seeing the date and thought I'd give my two cents.

    Where did you buy this? I have read about them not long ago but they were not for sale at that time. I would love to get ahold of a couple.

    Hey guys, after doing some searching I found them and contacted them via e-mail and got the Tru-Hop that way. Here is their site: trusightairsoft.com

    Cheers!

    Thanks man. Do you think this gives better range than a flat hop?

    Everything I've seen on the tru-hop warrants the thread revival.
    I received one of their bucking for testing and can honestly say I'm impressed with everything I've seen so far.

    I have not been able to do any ranged tests yet, but fit and finish are great.

    Yeah, it gives a boost in range but what is impressing me more is the consistency and the grouping I can get at those longer rangers compared to the other hop-up upgrades.

    I too have recently ordered one for one of my projects. R hop works well, but takes a lot of time and patience, this looks like a good alternative that is much less time consuming

    I just got one and installed it in my VFC Scar-L. It only increased my range slightly over my maple leaf, but it is making my shot trajectory a lot flatter and i have not had any fliers with it so far especially while shooting full auto. It really seems to work better than any other buckings i have used for a full auto set up. Accuracy and precision has a noticeable difference. I'm liking it so far. But be advised, the spacer included would need the sides sanded down if your planning on installing in an ICS hop up unit because it will not fit through the nub window. Not a huge problem but i thought i would mention it.
