i recently bought an automag. it doesnt have a lvl 10 bolt, and ive haerd that they chop a lot without it. so im just wondering would a shake and shoot be able to keep up all right, or should i stick my vlocity on there?

Just don't shoot too fast. I'd plop a vlocity on there just to be safe

Chopping a lot is a relative term. I've shot many mags that have never chopped and I've Z2s, Halos, Eggs, and rotors with them. Just throwing this out there, find a cheap level 10 kit. IMO its one of the best anti chop mechanisms out there. Hell Tom Kaye put his tongue in his breach and pulled the trigger...

As long as your hopper feeds faster than you can shoot, you won't chop. Chops happen when you're shooting faster than your hopper feeds, and half a paintball is in the breach when you fire, chopping the paintball. If you think you'll outshoot a shake and bake, then get an agitating loader, like a Pinokio, a Fasta, a Revvy, a Rico, or something similar. If you're going to outshoot that, then get a force feed loader. If you don't want to have to worry about chops ever, get a Z2 or a Rotor.

All right thanks. I can't imagine that I would be shooting to fast with it, but I'll stick my vlocity on it just to be safe. The lvl 10 bolt is definately my next investment when I get some cash because I plan to be using this gun a lot from now on.
