Good news - I'm interested to see if this comes out as I expect

What are you testing for? Consistancy? Underboring/overboring again? Barrel breaks?


DYE ftw.

bore, length, one v two-piece, consistancy, efficiency.

Accuracy is next week.

ah, the 21

good times.
The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

I mean specifically in regard to accuracy. I still have a feeling we may not have heard the last from paint-to-barrel match (although I expect that underbored systems with an intelligent muzzle design will provide optimum accuracy. It's that transition bit where I think things could get hairy.)

sadly, the accuracy portion (also the most interesting to me) will be this Friday and we don't have any of that to report yet.

Awesome! I had a feeling you guys were waiting until after the holidays. Same situation for my tests, too. Glad to hear it and keep up the good work.

Any idea on an ETA of finishing the data recording? I'm sure the number crunching will add time onto that.

I would think we'll have stuff to roll out over the weekend or maybe Monday / Tuesday (Jan 3, 4, 5, 6).

The number crunching isn't that bad if you know what you're testing going in - you can pre-build the forms and then the numbers just settle out as you enter data.

Getting all of that data looking nice and getting the vids edited and uploaded takes more time.
