Rubber Fins for regular Paintballs

I just saw a picture of paintballs inserted in rubber fins to simulate a first strike round. I couldn't find anything out on the companies website. I was wondering if anyone else has any information on this.

Scarab Arms. It's not rubber, it's compressed foam type stuff.

Looks pointless to me. I would rather just buy first strikes.

Thanks, but no thanks Scarab Arms.

The support around the ball may actually stop it breaking as easily. It'll be interesting to see how it handles in real life - there's definitely more drag than a regular FS. Might be fine though.

One bonus is that you could probably sweep up a bunch of the fins and reuse them

i imagine as a compressed foam, they may be just as fragile as a first strike round.

not sure how much paint a .50 cal has as opposed to a first strike either, I dont believe first strikes have a full paint .68 paintball payload do they?

Major questions - Do they work as well as first strike, and is cost difference enough to bother?

from what i heard $30/100 vs the FS $40/100 price point.

They look nice, it's a .50 cal ball in a molded shell whereas the FS rounds are molded 'plastic'.

Any gun?...

Think, how do you get your gun to shoot First Strike? You either get a magfed or convert to it.

How about if you don't want to pay more? Well, you put them in the barrel or pull the bolt to insert it then put the bolt back in.
