In the UK, the general agreement is...
280fps max for .68cal
320fps max for .50cal
I just played a whole UWL tournament today with .50cal, and I can tell you I used 2 boxes of Dark Sports paint (4000 balls), and still had 2 pods left.
It is bang on target, shot a lot of people out - each time, the balls were breaking whereas I was getting bounces from people shooting .68 GI 5 Star paint!
I'm shooting a hopper and a pod and only using 1,000psi. That's about urm... 800 paintballs - maybe a bit less...
A lot of people were interested in it and asked to have a go, and the impression was "Holy **** that has made the Etek4 feel as smooth as a Geo3 - and it is ball on ball!".
Probably would never use it on a sup air field - however, don't see why not...
I love it and I am deffo a fan!
I hate to say it but I didn't use my G6R today
