In Topic: Monster Spin Barrel

I don't believe the Apex was ever designed to allow connection to a flat line barrel.  To do it would still require a bit of modification.  Also please note that all A5 and X7 barrels will fit a Phenom, the front shroud may need to be removed to use older style barrels though.  Flatlines in a phenom also require a special barrel adapter.


In Topic: Real world bore to paint advice!

This thread is going be a mess, I can see this already.

 

When in doubt, argue against physics and statistics. 

 

Markers are not static devices regardless of how you look at them.  Even in a vice there will be variance over time due to buildup of contaminants in the marker itself during strenuous shooting, possibly from the air being pushed throughout the marker.  However, in general those changes are ignored.

 

 

"paint always swells in cold or heat or humidity"

STOP!!!

we know that paintballs are made of gelatin and swell/shrinks pending temp

 

There's no reason to Dr. Evil the post when its plain fact, not a made up phenomenon.

 

Punkworks has beat this horse to death multiple times over with multiple tests, over multiple years, with multiple pieces of equipment.  Their data speaks for itself, what others say isn't going to change that.

 

 

1. Efficiency of the marker....[ awesome benchracing specs and wank off numbers that really don't matter to people who can refill after every game!!]
I LOVE wanking off to numbers, but this really only matters to scenario players and project engineers (me and other geeks).

2. Consistency only matters if you are hanging out at the Chrono all day!!!
[ Theoretically consistency would lead into accuracy, but in paintball it ABSOLUTELY does not!!! (everyone who claims +-2 fps consistently in 10 shots is either lying or a marketing claim) [I have a $1000 dollars waiting for someone to prove me wrong]

 

1.  Tell that to the hundreds and thousands of players who play every weekend without fills between games at airball fields.

 

2. Consistency matters from the second you shoot the first ball.  if you want to shoot a marker with +- 20 fps all day and watch paintballs drop multiple feet in front of a target because you can't compensate for changing velocity as fast as you can shoot, be my guest.  The fact is consistency allows us to keep balls on target over a string of shots because we don't have to constantly adjust to hit our target (assuming a static target).  +- 2 fps is entirely possible as well.

Yes you have to tell them and declare it in your luggage. And make sure they are aware you have it.

 

You don't have to "declare" anything.  If they search you and find it, whatever.  If you don't look like shady and act like a real person I doubt they'll ask for anything other than your passport and any other documents.


In Topic: What age is too young for paintball?

Technically if I remember correctly, age 10 is the insurance limit for most fields.

I'm guessing one, you're eyes are probably a little dirty, two you're wire connections are loose and the vibration from shooting may be causing them to work at times and not at others.
