Best hop rubber?

Hi all, I recently bought a dboys aks74u and it's a good gun but the hop and barrel let's it down so I have bought a lonex hop unit and a lonex tightbore 6.03mm barrel however I forgot the rubber.

 

What's the best rubber for performance and price?

 

Many thanks

Andy

Ive not had a lot of experimenting, but a madbull blue 60 degree rubber works wonders with my ICS SA80.

 

If you get the red one it comes with a H nub rather than a standard one, which again worked wonders for me

Bought a madbull red 60deg on the way, hopefully it will improve the range and performance!

That one comes with a H nub. Youll want to find somewhere you can both:

take apart your gun to fit the new rubber/nub

AND test fire the gun, at least 20m.

 

When installing a H nub, it can be hard to set, resulting in a spin tgat sends your BBs off to one side, so it might take a couple of tries.

 

And when you do find a place, make sure that nobody can see you with an assault rifle and call the ARU, else you may be in for a surprise

The Madbull blues are very good, the red one AFAIK is for higher FPS setups, like in the region of 400s.

Prometheus purple or marui black standard AEG ones.
