Yeah man, that new valve is insane! I never thought anyone would come up with something new for a paintball gun. Its no surprise that the innovation came from PE!

I can do that! Its not that hard really. Place your left hand palm up on the crust and then then just rotate your hand as you toss it up.

I always used my fists, one more under the center then an outer one to spin it, sort of like spinning a baseketball on your finger. My first job in HS was at a pizza place.

I'm gonna have to try it. I've only been spinning dough for a month or so. We used a sheeter at the other place

Interesting, never heard of it done like that.

Just make sure that dough is fresh. I hate the stuff thats been sitting. Stuff practically stretches itself when you pick it up.


In other news, I got my new rotor parts. Virtue SF speed feed and soft cycle. So nice.

For the first event I think we are just running Junior, Rich and Thomas with it. Afterwards everyone will switch out Axes for Impulses.

Yeah, it's really smooth, like how a Viking shoots almost, but without all the extra weight. Smoother than most poppets I have shot, even smoother than my Angel with hundreds of thousands of shots through it. It's the most comfortable marker I have ever held, its luxe reach to the regulator but trigger and grip feel of a DM I guess is how I would describe it. Also cocker threads, instead of Ion/SP threading.

Speaking of smooth I want to shoot one of those LV1's. Dont even care about how it looks as long as its buttery smooth.

Blarg... Not interested...

The new Ego may be the bee's knees but there isn't anything spectacular to make me want to buy one...

The Impulse may also be the bee's knees but again, nothing spectacular to make me want to buy one.

The only new marker coming out that has me intrigued is the Torque from J4. I certainly won't be throwing a bunched $$$ as something that is unproven but what they've show has some decent promise. It would probably be a solid all-around marker for both tournament and scenario ball. We shall see...



And **** my luck... Won't be able to make it to Dallas. My return has been kicked back at least a week if not 2... I'll just start planning for Chicago with the boss to make that **** happen.

Ive already decided that the LV1 will be my next marker... Unless I get an empire sponsorship (fingers crossed) and the package includes an axe at a good price.

That's BS about not being able to make Dallas. Who do I need to kick in the sack. O well Chicago it is.

and seems the senior set wallet is safe for this season. Lotsa cool new ideas, but im not too hyped on buying into unproven new tech. Wait it out til 2nd gen of the new stuff to get the bugs worked out and maybe downsized a tad. Also could work on the aesthetics a tad as well. They all look kinda clunky/a step back in time looks wise.

I was driving at Warp 3 and was yelling "GET OVER STUPID" in a southern drawl at every driver not doing Warp 3. (everyone else on the road) So this one idiot put his blinker on and was moving over so I put the hammer down and started to pass him. Then the dude decides "no, I don't want to get over" and starts coming back at me. I had to get down on the rumple / don't fall asleep strips on the shoulder and blow by him before I got sent off the road entirely. Thought for sure I was going to find some nails when I was so far off the normal road surface but everything turned out just fine.

So, on this day two of the coolest mother****ers in OT were born. One of them is obviously me, but the other is the grizzled, grouchy, boss of us all.

glad to hear. However, had that happened here on the northern border of the south, we'da "saluted" him, then shot out his tires, taken his momma hostage and beat her for having such a stupid non-driving indecisive offspring. (its nascar season again, so the whole swapping paint on the interstate takes on a whole new meaning over this way for the next several months)
