Ok so I've been researching things on RSCB's and Inline clips trying to figure out which is better to use on my new signal launcher but I can't really find anything. Is using one or the other just preference because from what I've seen they both have the same concept or is one actually better then the other some feedback on this would be really appreciated.

Inline Clips:
The ranges are a bit lower because air has to fill up the entire space before even reaching the dart. It does jam less, however.

RSCB:
I have had problems with jamming and darts getting caught, but because air flows into the RSCB right next to the dart you get better ranges.

Vincent, not true in most cases.

RSCB:
-more deadspace
-much less likely to shotgun darts
-won't protrude form the front of your gun a shit load
-will not work as well on low volume springers, too much deadspace
-work nicely with high volume springers

Inline:
-won't work with air guns except for those with low volumes (relative to air guns) in SOME cases. It'll just shotgun darts otherwise because air is moved so quickly.
-less deadspace
-work wonders on low volume springers
-will also work with higher volume springers, but RSCB's are more practical for these because of barrel length
-work with automatics because of their low volume and slower air release (than other air guns)

Moral of the story:
Automatics - Inline
Low Volume Springers - Inline
Most Air Guns - RSCB
High Volume Springers - RSCB / Inline

And about the signal launcher, an inline WILL not work. It will just shotgun the whole clip.

I'd say go with the RSCB for the signal launcher. More powerful guns tend to double, triple, etc. feed in inline clips, because the air does push through darts, and then gets to the barrel.

EDIT: TantumBull said some things i said. At the same time...

Oh ok thanks for the great info so far I'm definitely going whip an RSCB now for my signal launcher. Also about how long should my clip be for the rscb so that its last shot has ranges of about 55-60 ft? I use 1 inch length stefans if it helps at all.

Unplugged? I'd say about 2 feet and a dart would still hit that. Which is obscenely long. Go as long as is comfortable for you.

Thanks Tantum really appreciate you helping a noob like me. I haven't actually acquired the signal launcher yet as it is still being shipped but from what I've heard is it basically a big blast in a smaller shell? Also is the button trigger uncomfortable on the back of the handle?

Dunno, haven't used one. My information is based off of the fact that the internals are the same and have ROUGHLY the same stock pressure limits as a BBBB.

However, I do have a nat geo gun with a button trigger, and it isn't that bad. I'd rather have a normal trigger, but it isn't terrible.

I was thinking of a different type of inline clip, I think. I have used some that have a dart and then another dart behind that and so on. I was referring to the one with four darts, then 4 behind that....

I'd use 1 foot of whatever you're using. Two feet could mess with comfort.

I use most guns that would work with rcsb so i would say go with what ever one goes with the kind of guns you use! Simple as that try them out and see how the work.

I've been using a Signal Launcher with various RSCB's since I started modding, so this is right up my alley!

I find that a 14" clip is a good size. If you're using a ball valve, mount it sideways so the handle faces your non-dominant hand and you can sight down the barrel.

Also, use a longer piece of PVC to connect the tee and elbow so they're about 1/4" apart. Cut a 1/2" ring off a coupler and cut it in half, then epoxy it to one of the gray missile clips. Snap the coupler onto your RSCB, and install. Your RSCB is now supported in two places without being permanent!

I'm doing some work on my own SGSL today, so I'll post some pics and delete this line tonight.
