Looking for a paintball myth to bust

Hey guys im looking for some paintball myths to bust on video and out up on youtube so if you guys have some you want busted post them below and we will test every possible point and put the results up for everyone to enjoy!

We have already tested

Freezing paintballs
shooting marbles
We are testing catching a paintball currently

I know the production value of the older videos is a wee bit crummy (just got proper cameras and editing software) but here they are if you can think of a re visit i can film that and post it as well.


Marbles



Frozen paintballs



thanks again for ignoring the old production value lol its only getting better

so at first, i thought this was sorta dumb. but then, in the frozen paintball video, i saw that you have a large pack of icecream bars in your freezer. i respect you for that.

the video is ok though.

just some ideas
-Shooting someones paint out of the air before it hits you myth
-barrel length accuracy myth(does it effect anything)
-is it possible to dive "through" a lane (12.5bps in this case)
i.e. can it be proven that a lane is/or is not makeable if someone is holding it correctly...

This is confirmed, we have filmed countless video of this. It's actually pretty cool, especially when the paintball spirals and looks like one of those spiraling fireworks.

I've also had it happen. It's an awesome feeling of being on the same playing field as someone.

The myth back in the day that prevailed heavily was that an autococker (closed bolt system) was more accurate than open bolt markers.
