Timmy problems

12 June 2013 - 07:03 PM

Already tried a new name brand battery. K? K.

So I bought this. I got it in, put a couple balls through it, didn't chrono it, but it fired fine. Decided to go the Bob Long method of setting the LPR, and backed both regs all the way out. I gave it a little in the HPR, and started on the LPR, firing and turning the screw. The gun will not fully cycle. Eventually I'll get to a point where the bolt will have some movement, but it will not activate the poppet, even when the gauge reads in excess of 120 psi. If I get the gun to about 80-90 psi, kill the air at the ASA, then turn air back on, the LPR will almost immediately over pressurize and the solenoid vents.

I've taken the LPR apart, cleaned off the o rings, and relubed them with Dow 55, and still no dice. I've only stopped short of replacing the o rings, and that's because I don't have the needed ones on hand.

So um, any assistance? I think I'm just going to call BLAST and have them fix the thing, or bring it to the guy at my field and have him try his hand. Because I'm at a complete loss.

Mechanical/pneumatic problems aside, this thing is MINT. There are like 3 dings on the tip of the barrel, and a couple where the grip frame meets the body, but otherwise, it looks as if this was pulled straight out of the box. I'll feel bad playing with it, but I don't buy things. To sit down and collect dust. ^_^

Picking paint

04 June 2013 - 08:36 PM

Late in the day (I'm assuming due to Louisiana heat and humidity) barrel breaks become an issue. From what I'm given to understand, CB is basically Premium with different coloration, and from the searching I've done, few people have these issues. However, looking at the people at our field, this is not an uncommon occurrence. Late in the day, everyone has issues with breaking paint, which leads me to believe it isn't in our equipment and its cleanliness, but with poor paint/poor storage.

Last time I went, it was very humid, but the temperature wasn't that high, so I didn't get an opportunity to really see if using my ice chest made a significant difference, but previously people have bought paint, walked it out to the field, and had breaks within the first couple games. In other words, I think the change is going to be minimal, if any. Anyway, on to the information.

Available Paint:
  • Custom Blend ($55)
  • standard Evil ($65)
  • Dye CG ($80)

Equipment:
  • Extcy/Prophecy Z2
  • Vibe/Halo Too
  • Mini/Halo Too
  • Enmey/Rotor

Questions:
  • Would the Evil be a better option for late in the day when conditions are less favorable?
  • Would we have a problem with our guns/loaders shooting Evil? I'm given to understand the Too isn't the easiest on paint, even when the speed is down and ball stack tension monitoring is enabled.
  • Would it be worth talking to the field owner/management about switching from CB to Marbs or adding Marbs as an available option? Is there not a big enough jump between the two to justify it? Would Marbs have a problem in the rental 98s?

What do you wear?

12 May 2013 - 09:15 PM

Age old question, and I'm trying to decide what to wear as summer comes in full force. I'm fairly set on getting a good pair of pants, and that will likely occur after graduation (and all the money that follows...)

Choice 1) What I've been doing, long sleeve tee over a compression shirt. In between games, the tee comes off and I am cool, during the game the compression shirt wicks moisture. Downside? I'm padless. I could add pads, but that's another layer meaning more heat gets trapped.

Choice 2) Short sleeve tee and elbow pads. I'm kinda leaning toward this, but I'm not sure how well the pads vent. I'm in Louisiana, so heat and humidity are issues. If you're hot and wet, you're going to have a bad time. I could take the pads off between games, but that's slow, and I don't want to be the root cause of delays between games.

Choice 3) Cheap jersey + pads. The least likely of all options, but it would introduce some breathability without resorting to wearing a super tight shirt in the staging area. I'm not super big buff, but I'm trim enough that I'm not self-conscious about wearing a shirt that tight.
