The Mauler is proven to be more powerful though that is most likely 'cos it is a barrel sealer rather than a chamber sealer which the Supah is.

Got a reply from Sean:

I rate them at that because my compressors give up to 125 psi and with the
current model of Maulers, I have not broken any seals with that pressure. I
have tested them at higher pressures and they start showing some problems
with seals breaking and components cracking. Also since most compressors can
reach 125, I figured I should make it at least that strong. It does work at
lower pressures, but I find it best to operate at at least 80.

Hope that helps. Happy spudding.

I see we both were partially correct. It does begin to show stress going over 125 PSI, but he also did it because 125 PSI is a very common number.

Do you know anything more about the test between the Mauler and Supah?

Erm....they where both sent to an independent person with a chronograph and under the same size barrel/reservoir the Mauler performed better....

That's all I know/can remember perhaps someone else can fill in the details?

Thanks Gepard, I just wanted to get an idea of what the testing conditions were like.

If anybody else knows more, fill me in.

Thanks,
