As technology advances in the Airsoft world the AEG is still the crowd favorite since they offer the most customization routes for each player. The counter argument would be the HPA way but it is just a “drop in” mod and no skill for the performance.
The latest piston to arrive to the shops is the “Kratos” Ultra High Strength piston from Angel Custom in a collaborative effort from the Techs at Evike.com and Umbrella Armory. There have been many pistons on the market that are good but for only certain limitations. The goal for the Kratos is to make the best piston for any rifle and any setup.
The Kratos Piston looks the same as other pistons that come and go with the hype train in Airsoft like the SHS a few years ago. The main piston that still stands the test of time would be the pistons from Prometheus, Modify Ultra Piston and the Super Core piston of course. Solid tooth rack and polymer first tooth at adapt to any AoE.
