    What... is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

I was told at the booth that they were to be sold as one piece, with the paint already put in. The fins felt to be more of a plastic instead of rubber, and they claimed that the splat was equal if not bigger than a First Strike round.

yes, the fins are an air-injected plastic. very very hard, and seemed very very tough.
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 interested in the decomposition time of the fin portion of the round.

i am far more worried about being shot by these things then the FS rounds. and remember, i was one of the first to say that FS would be fine ....

After seeing it in person, and feeling it, I am not enthusiastic with the round. Obvious manufacturing issues aside, the material just seems wrong for what they want. I'm concerned with safety, given how hard that round feels.

Going to draw straws to see who gets shot first? :P

Personally, I'm more interested in the TGR2 than I am in these new fangled rounds.

Those look like they might hurt a wee bit more but what do I know
Stop worrying about how you look, and start worrying about how you play. Get out on the field and play paintball the best you can, not stand at home in front of a mirror trying to figure out if your jersey matches your eyes.

If its made from a hard plastic then that looks dangerous. I thought they would be made from a stiff foam, not plastic.

How is this marketed as being better than first strike rounds? Does it just allow you to buy the "fins" separately and fill it with whatever paint you want?

No, they come pre-made, 50 cal paintball and all. The draw here is that 100 rounds will cost only $30, instead of $40 for 100 like FS rounds are.

Wow they look like that new!?!Ive done better casts myself at home
Considering the nose shape of the round&poor casting quality Id stick to FS myself.Cost wouldnt be a deciding factor for me for these types of rounds.
Feel the foam may glaze certain barrels also
Still a good idea,I know my projects rarely come out the way I planned to start with.Looks like they need a little fine tuning

I think sketchy is the word I would use to describe these... looks like it'd be kind of dangerous depending on what that back is made out of.
