so i was bored this weekend started to think about planning my voyage to LL5 and thought to myself hmmmm wouldnt it be nice to have a .50 cal apex for my nano? the apex2 seems sooo simple! so headed to lowes to get a few things. got 3/4 black PVC pipe and robber tubing to use as spacers. after spending sometime studying the apex2 i decided to make a prototype and see if the same physics would apply to the .50cal. so i put together a rig on the barrel made from the robber tubing and made a flap from the same robber tubing to use as the curbing device. i glued/taped everything in the 3/4 pvc pipe and mounted it onto the barrel. i took it outside and shot about a quarter hopper and it does give the ball a curve!!!! there were inconsistencies but i can attribute that my maldesign of the rubber. its not sercure in the apex and it doesnt have the same consistency as the apex2 rubber with has better friction and its contoured to the ball. now that i know its possible ill be making a more solid design. ill put up a shooting video this weekend by the time i get home from work its so dark cant really shoot a video.
