Efficiency?

Has anyone done a actual count of how many shots a vibe can get with certain sized tanks? I'm looking for how much it can get off a 48/3000 steely

off of a 70/4500 I shot ~6 pods and 2 VL Eye-force loaders. which is ... 1240 shots per fill. Pretty decent I think.

when my steely's not being gay on me i get 450-500, sometimes more depending on barrel bore to paint match, velocity, weather conditions, etc.

Maybe for a spoolie or a vibe. But not in general. I expect to get 1500+ off most guns anymore. But that is poppits. I get the same amount of said shots with my PM6 off a full 68/45

I'll do a vibe efficiency test later tonight.

Ok, so I've got 175 shots off of the last 1000 psi in my 68/45, with ABOUT 100 shots left. I used a gravity fed hopper because I assume that most newer players use that. I would use a 48/45 because it has more air in it (3000 psi) but that wouldn't be accurate for most people that use a 68/45.

But to triple post and answer your question, you'll probably get right around 500 shots plus/minus 75 shots.

Or learn not to shoot 500 shots in one round of play. That would be pretty heavy Gunna...

i've done that for woodsball scenrio games, thats the only time i do that. back players shoot a half a case or more per game sometimes so 500 in a speedball game isnt that much for some

I've met one of that best back players I know and he only carried 1000 paintballs on the field. He rarely used all of it in one game. Besides, when you start to play tournaments and know how to shoot and play back you should at least be able to pick up a 68/45 for cheap on here. Hell, Smart Parts is now selling a 68/45 for $99 with a Vibe.

a big role of the back player is to strategically lay paint at important spots on the field, but some dont use that much your right.

And tell the rest of the team what's up with the field. Like how many players are left on their side, how many are on your side, positions where people are and other stuff.

right, it all depends on your style of play but i would say there's always at least one player that will shoot out a full steely in a speedball game

Ya, chances are they will and chances are that it will be back player. That SHOULD be using a 68/45 not a 48/3000
