high speed camera against a back drop of black and white lines to determine distance over time, similar to what you see on myth busters could calculate an exact velocity.

if the feedneck insert doesn't slide easily in and out sand it till it slides in and our fairly easily and then polish it, that's what i did after i had one get stuck in my ego 08

you have to play at the field determined velocity, playing with my ego 08 with a .50 kit i noticed 0 noticeable difference in range or accuracy whatsoever, it actually seemed a bit MORE accurate compared to what most people thought it would shoot like but if you shoot good .68 paint it will shoot just as straight. so don't worry about your range, the range you lose it still at the range with .68 you wouldn't and shouldn't even be shooting because the paint won't break.


if you want to shoot .50 then go shoot .50 but i would suggest maybe trying to find a cheap ego 08 and get a .50 kit for it. mine works great and i enjoy playing with it very much, i usually shoot splatmaster .50 because our field only stocks empire paint and obviously they don't sell .50


the splat is not that much different at all, shooting both at a tree and looking at it you wouldn't know the difference, but it would be a good idea to tell the ref that you are using .50 so they are aware.


i would use the spyder rapid-e loader, as .68 loaders are just too hard on the paint and cause breaks and jams from what i have seen.

do not put the chronoes next to each other an attempt to read the velocity, they will affect each other and improperly read.
