Refridgerated paint - Nano / Micro shoots it, Etek 50 Cal breaks it
Posted 21 September 2010 - 12:01 AM
As you know, I always store my Formula 13 50 cal in the refridgerator. The colder you keep 50 cal paint, the better chance of it breaking. Once it goes to room temperature or hotter, it becomes a bit more firm
Anyways, I've tried several times to shoot 50 cal paint, that's straight out of the refridgerator through my SLS or Etek 3 50 Cal, and it usually will break paint
I got the urge to try it through my GI Micro, and my GI Nano - 350 shots later, not a single broken ball
It could be the slower bolt speed, no idea, but it blows right through that super-cool paint with no breaks or problems at all.
For the record, when I drop the chilled 50 cal Formula 13 from a height of 7 feet (just above my head), it consistently cracks when it hits the smooth concrete floor. 6 feet it'll bounce, 7 feet it breaks.
I believe the paint is around 45 to 50 degrees (standard refrigerator temperature), but I can't confirm that until I use a temperature gauge. Also, I do plan on trying 50 cal at World Cup for at least 1 or 2 games

You need to get the Ego 11 to shoot the 50 cal paint
You mean the Ego'leven!

In ohio, winter/unfavorable weather lasts nearly 3-4 months. Not all indoor is fancy, heated with poleless structuring around here. A conversion kit to play even 3 months out of the year instead of just being downtime or completely shredded by half froze 68 cal on half court-pole barn-xball fields is acceptable to me. Digging neon shell out of your fatty tissue is no fun even if you hate the idea of 50 cal.
The vic has a conversion so I assume the g6r will/does have one aswell? Ego problem solveddddddddddddddd.
