Talk to those guys who have that youtube channel called "The Slow Mo Guys" or whatever it is.... if there was something cool they could get out of the video, something they could shoot and upload for their own youtube channel maybe they'd let you use the equipment or come over themselves. I've seen their vids where they go out of their way to make a cool video. But I have no idea where they are, or where you are so that is probably a long shot... idk just thought id throw it out there.

Although o agree with that dough, rail and DAM are also there, DM might just be in front because it's dyes flagship marker? I seriously doubt that they would risk changing it so drastically when the major selling point of DMs was the "proven technology" partw


You're forgetting that they've made that "proven DM" for 5 years in a row now..... they need to do something different.

No, I mean given the design of a DM, and the isolated dump chamber, you're already on the tail end of the pressure with standard dwell. Adding dwell time ensures that the bolt can overcome the stiction and fully open. If it does not encounter stiction, and ends up leaving the bolt open for an extra few milliseconds, you're just letting extra residual pressure out long after the paintball is gone. Depending on the setup, that might add like 5 or 10 fps at the most, but 50 fps is a physical impossibility with a DM.

gotcha, so then what happened with his first shot to make it shoot 50 over the limit?

Not possible??? It wouldn't be if you have the dwell set up properly, but if dwell is set a little too low and conditions change to make your current dwell setting a little lower than what it should be and you compensate by raising pressure then there you go. I'm giving the player the benefit of the doubt though, he did claim it was an ABS setting issue. Which is exactly why I'm thinking what in the world was he (or the gun tech) thinking/doing leaving the dwell setting too low to dump the entire chamber on a normal shot. Dwell tuning is a very simple thing to do.

I don't think anything that happened was that bad to be honest, not until you look at the whole picture. One player set his ABS too high, and a few others barely went over the legal limit. Those shots that barely broke 300 could be blamed on weather affecting the paint, which to me would just call for a penalty on the field. But when you look at the fact that the majority of their players taking the field had these issues it's really odd. If they knowingly took the field with markers shooting on the edge of being hot then they have nobody to blame but themselves. I would like to know where the gun tech was, or what the guy was thinking when his marker was shooting over 340 fps on his first shot. That's a pretty clear indication that he needs to dwell tune his marker and then set his ABS properly.
