As many of us know there are 2 types of CPS technology: the more common Spherical and the more rare but rumored more powerful Cylindrical. Since my two favorite guns, the CPS 1000 and 1500/1700, are spherical I'd say I prefer Spherical. Also my CPS 1000 outperforms my CPS 4100 which is Cylindrical.

I prefer and voted for cylindrical because I'm a big fan of homemade CPS chambers such as Latex rubber tubing. However, as far as modifying goes, I'd take a spherical chamber any day - the K-mod is far easier than Collosus. There isn't much if any actual performance-wise difference between either chamber as well.

I voted for spherical because of modding. Balloons are easier to obtain than rubber tubing, and opening a spherical pc is easier than opening a cylindrical one. I've never made a CPH [although I'd like to]. Any CPH guides planned? I just need to know the cost of LRT plus the best way to attach it to the end of the pc.

Spherical, they can be put on smaller guns but will keep power.

Also, they're easier to shoot put 100% of the water in there.

I prefer spherical, like SS-Stencil said, you can fit it into a much smaller blaster and have a lot of power.

I voted cylindrical because of the potential...all of the more powerful CPS homemades and such use cylindrical. Although, I agree that spherical is very close performance wise.

Cylintrical for being more powerfull (My cps 3000) I will agree the modding is difficult though.
You can get more with a kind word and a gun than just a kind word.
