Ribbons can get pinched just as easily. At least when you pinch a normal wire you can fix it with electrical tape, heat shrink tubing, or replace the wire with a new piece. With a ribbon you're out the $30 SP screws you for a new one.

EXACTLY, wires can be spliced and fixed at home, while eye ribbons cannot.

I've got about a 50/50 success/fail rate when it comes to fixing broken solder joints on the ends of those ribbons, but if you break a trace, it's fatal. Do not pas GO!, do not collect $200, pay $20 for a new ($0.30) eye ribbon.

Some of us like the ability to affect repairs ourselves (or for others with money but no skill or tools. ).

Nope it wasn't... a lot quieter and smoother than a shocker as well.

I was trying to look at the camera screen as well as try to aim it, I noticed I was shooting the ground so lifted the gun up and shot the bush.

If you're shooting shockers right now, then nothing is a waste

Yeah the initial barrel rise was you adjusting, I can see that much, after that you can see barrel rise as you start a string.

I didn't read through all three pages, but did it come with the max flo reg and the on/off ASA for using screw in tanks?
in the manual it says the on/off asa is included

How does it compare to what you previously tried

I dont care about price really, we all know that doesnt equate into the performance always.

More of a hows it feel like kinda thing, i mean erhh lala im tired and i would love to try one.

It's funny how the scientific method can be used to accurately place objects into orbits around planets that won't be in their final positions for years, but it's just so fragile and useless that it can't be used to quantify changes in the firing system of a PB marker.

Give me a break guys. There have been fools selling the "more range/better accuracy" lie for literally decades, and they all use this same line of bull****. "It's too complex to explain or test or show proof of, but let me lay out a totally unrelated analogy that you can understand, which will justify the ridiculous price I'm asking for this device."

1) Pool balls are solid, not a crunchy candy shell with a partially filled rich painty nougat center. The two do not behave in even remotely similar ways.

B) How do you know paintballs spin wildly at high RPM when loaded into the breech or a marker? Got any high speed photography to back that one up? Any testing data at all?

3) How do you know that this marker shoots "perfectly" every shot? Any high speed photography to back that up? Any testing data at all?

4) Have you done any vise rest testing to prove your accuracy claims? If so, where's the data?

5) Have you done any vise rest testing to prove your range claims? If so, where's the data?

6) Have you done any controlled testing to prove your air usage claims? If so, where's the data?

7) Are you seeing a pattern here?

8) The muzzle velocity of the .50BMG round fired by the Barret M82 rifle averages ~2900 FPS (depending on bullet weight and barrel length). The M2 Browning Machine Gun uses the exact same cartridge, and will have nearly the same muzzle velocity (USMC reports average muzzle velocity of the M2 as ~3050 FPS). Given that the bullet fired is of the same mass and has the same ballistic coefficient, both weapons will have an effective range in the same ball park. If their muzzle velocities match, their effective ranges will match.

The military may list their effective ranges as two vastly different numbers, but let's look at what they're used for.

The Barret is a shoulder fired semi-auto or bolt action rifle, used to engage human and hardened point targets with aimed fire. This rifle's ability to place a single shot where you want it is limited by your optics and the skill of the man behind the trigger to about 2000 yds. The bullet has plenty of gas left when it gets there, but you're not going to be able to place your shots exactly where you want them beyond that.

The M2 machine gun is a base of fire weapon used to engage armor and other vehicles as well as aircraft and hardened emplacements. This is an area effect weapon, so it's maximum range is defined by the point at which the projectile no longer carries enough kinetic energy to deliver satisfactory terminal performance (IE the point at which it stops going through, and starts bouncing off).

This analogy is specious at best.

IX) 4.5 miles = 23,760 ft, while 2000 yds = 6000 ft 23,760/6000 = 3.96 (not 10). Should we assume your shot counts were calculated using that sort of math as well?

TEN) Why oh why must someone try this crap every year or so?
Good post

I can add to this. When I shoot a poppet valve, its always felt to me like they have a flatter trajectory. Every spool valve I've ever shot (I've never shot a Luxe) seems to lob the paint more and not have as flat a trajectory as poppet valve guns. These include: DM3,4,C,6,7, Droid, Shocker SFT, NXT, PMR,5 so on and so on.

I've shot many of poppets too all the Ego's, and Bob Long's....ect ect and they all feel or appear like they have a flatter trajectory.

THE ONLY EXCEPTION to the spool valve is the FEP Quest, to me it felt like it had a noticeably flatter trajectory than other spool valves.
