    I thought ox springs were square and titan round.

    I know in direct comparison to the hw97 square spring the titan I put in my mates gun was a lot quieter and smoother with no vibe.

    I think they put a low friction type coating on the titans, well this one had a coating anyway.

    The farmers lad on a farm I shoot once put an ox spring in his gun, and it just made it very jumpy on firing not what I would call a tuned set up at all, probably why Ive always shot more than him on his own land.

    I think the best thing to do is either buy a standard spring for your gun or a quality round one and like said the v mach type are top quality.

    Titan XS springs are used in a lot of tune kits. OX springs go into many bins.

    From Jim Maccari @ airrifleheadquarters? You should get a UK spec spring by default , though not sure with this package. Heavy tar is spring lubricant.

    Regarding the E3650 spring. It's a multi gun fit what it fits job, made by Jim Macarri.

    Just put a Titan XS in a SMK TH208 yesterday.
    Precut to size, plus tophat & x2 thinnest slip washers above & X2 thin power bands on the spring guide.
    There is ZERO preload on the spring & this produces 11.41 fpe with 16 grain FX pellets.
    Add about 5mm of preload to the spring & it produced 13 fpe (needless to say it's been set back to 11.4)
    No need for a spring compressor.
    This rifle actually makes legal power with ease because of a 28mm dia compression chamber, so the Titan has an easy time of it.
    However, the difference between Titan & Ox is like the difference between a Rolls Royce & a 30 yr old Landrover. They'll both get you there but one will jar your fillings loose during the journey
