It took you from 0:18 - 0:41 to re-set your firing mode on the OLED, I could've done it way faster and more convincing than that.

The only time I ever saw the "I can shoot XX bps" argument reach a resolution was on www.automags.org years and years ago.

A user actually ponied up and offered a cash prize to anyone who could submit a high quality video of themselves shooting semi automatic, sustaining over 13bps for an entire loader. Fastest average sustained speed for a loader took the prize.

The videos were slowed down to ensure that the markers were actually firing one shot per trigger pull. I believe that well over half the contestants were disqualified. Even when they swore up and down that their markers were legal, the video didn't lie, and time and time again posters were humbled.

I am not saying that people cant shoot fast in semi automatic. I am however willing to bet that 80%+ of people who claim to be able to steadily shoot anything over 15bps in semi, are not doing so with a marker that is actually shooting one shot per trigger pull. If they are aware of the assistance they are being given by their marker or not, is another story.

Why did it have to be an entire loader? Why couldn't it be for a string of 50-100 balls or so? What was the speed that won the prize?

I dont care how fast you can pull the trigger, just be decent enough to hold a string together and not miss shots in semi. Thats all Im sayin, if you cant atleast steadily roll on the trigger for a a few strings, youve been ramping too much.

It was his money, he made the rules.

I believe the winning run was something like 14.6bps sustained for the entire loader. With a peak ROF of 17.8bps sustained for 1 full second.

Its been a while though, numbers could be a little off.

That vapor video shows how the guns shoots pretty well. Most people had a very positive response to the new marker. Lol at some of those guys attempts at shooting a string in semi, kinda painful to watch. I'm not saying I'm awesome or anything but I only shoot semi and capping at 13bps I can easily keep it maxed rof for strings of paint. Uncapped, I can probably shoot 14-17bps max during strings. My left hand is a little worse, fingers aren't trained as well, probably 12-13bps max in semi.

The price of the vapor makes it out of my price range for a marker, but if I had a baller amount of disposable income I'd pick one up after trying it out probably. I agree that the grips need work, I think if they had more fluid lines in the grips like the old smart parts pro grips sorta but made to match the lines of the vapor. The grips stick out on such a smoothly machined marker. Is it just me or does the logo look oddly placed on the grip frame? Doesn't line up with the top of the grips very well, kinda looks like it was just thrown on before they had the grips designed. Looks solid though!

Yo ProMod you have a Camera?

Take a day and meet me either at Meadow Lands or Top Gun and get a decent recording of me doing this.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
