Haha, someone posted a CP video in the comments.

I show up at a field that I never been to before for some rec-play wearing cargo pants with a t-shirt....carrying a old mech Spyder and two pringle potato chip cans for pods shoved in the pants pockets. The stares are priceless and after the first game or so you get to see the grins from the ref and players who know....priceless.

Dudes, back in the day a rifled barrel + VM68 was the shit. Still got mine nicely snuggled up to my Vents Predator mask. Ah, the glory of old school woodsball when fitting the larget cameralens you could find on your marker (making it look like a freaking huge scope) really could put the fear of God in the new players. I sometimes miss those days of camocolored blingbling when fidgeting with my new oled board, custom bolt and glow in the dark hot pink orings for that extra squeeze of performance...

So, the more things change, the more they stay the same?

" Funny, the Flatline for years has proven you can add spin to a paintball to affect flight but somehow certain players do not think rifling works. It is great to see the players that use this technology speak up. Although we feel using sizers help, the new Freedom fighter is a great affordable way to check out this technology."



Why compare two different systems?!

oddly enough hammerhead was some of the earliest supposedly objective barrel testing done.

yeah, I've had long conversations with them. The problem was the design of the test IMO. They used a smart board to record impact locations for shots and did a ton of prototype work. The base line problem was that their suggested test for me was to hand sort paint then choose only super round paint within a +/- .002 range to use in the test. That's just not realistic in any way. If hand sorting is the only way to get their system to work then it's not useful in play today.

Along with that we couldn't replicate any level of reliable rotation on our high speed camera work in any combination of under, match or overbore situations.

possibly. The bore size on the rifled part is huge. I have a hard understanding how it could possibly interact with the ball.
