In Topic: Profilers vs Old Events

01 July 2015 - 01:07 AM

I have an E-Flex and two Profilers.  I like them both.  They both are just as easy to do a lens change, and I assume the Events use the same system as the Eflex.  The big difference is that the profilers have a single pane lens (with double available) and the Events will come with a double.  Have had more fog issues with my profilers, but that is with old lenses.  If you have not tried them on, it's tricky.  Both should be great, especially for $20.  A new lens is worth more than the mask so it may depend if either needs a new one or not.  Also, it looks like the Events has a smoke lens so make sure that is the lens type you want.

I would personally use a PM7 over either of those two options.  The JT Impulse is a bit of a different story, especially with them going for under $350 used.

In Topic: Real world bore to paint advice!

Euphoria, you are incorrect about your underbore and overbore assumptions.  Having a close paint to barrel match actually will give you less consistency over either of the other options.  I personally use under on my PM8, and over on my eNMEy.

 

To the OP, the reason no one has come to a conclusion on over/under/matched in terms of accuracy is that it has shown to have no effect.  The reason people these days talk about efficiency and consistency with barrels is these are two variables that barrels actually can have an effect on.

A good video on the subject.


In Topic: Opinions on the JT Evlution

At $50 the evlution would be my pick if you're going new for under $100.  Used Vlocity can be had for less (got my last one for $20), and used Rotor can be had for a bit more more (got my last one for $80).
