Topics I've Started

PBE's Nuketown made the front page on this site called "reddit" I think?

Yes, as said in the title, Reddit had it's front page graced by Nuketown 2013, Paintball Explosion's replica map. I personally think, despite the CoD circlejerk in the comments, this is great exposure for the sport of paintball. Thoughts?

If you had the chance to play for any pro team, who would it be?

Title say it all. I would personally love to play for either Dynasty or Impact. How about you guys?


Any Glovers?

19 July 2013 - 03:24 PM

I was just wondering if anyone else partakes in the awesomely cool activity of gloving? For those of you who don't know, gloving is what those people with lights on their fingers do to people on ecstasy at raves. Here's a long exposure of my old set. If you wanna talk about it or have questions, go right ahead!

Good Knee Pads?

24 June 2013 - 09:14 AM

So I already have a pair of invert pads I got a while back. Problem is when I slide, they like to become ankle weights. I'm looking at Dye PE, and HK pads. Anyone have any opinions or suggestions? The most important thing is that they STAY ON, and I would prefer If they are comfortable.

"Hop Up"

31 May 2013 - 04:30 PM

So with my friends acquisition of an apex tip. began thinking about other things that put spin on a spherical object, and my mind immediately jumped to a hop up system, found in airsoft guns. It works essentially the same as an apex, a rubber nub deflects the top of the projectile, causing backspin, as shown here

As you can see, It is integrated into the breach and acts as a detent of sorts. If adjusted properly, the results are a flat, straight shot with none of the initial "breaking" of an apex, since the ball still has the entire length of the barrel to travel.
So my question is, why hasn't anyone (except maybe Jack Rice with the sweep bolt, same principle, justs different method.) Tried this? Is it because of patents, or is it simply not feasible in a paintball gun? Would it cause excessive breaks?
I believe i could work, If it were either installed with a barrel in front of the detent or it itself acted as the detent. What do you think Punkworks? Feasible or half baked?
