Those numbers are pretty generous. Say 160 for a hopper and 135 per pod, so 700. Still like 2800 shots which is not correct lol thinking the claimed psi usage is off

Hustle as well as a few others said they've seen about 1.5 extra pods when put in any other Geo other than a Geo 3/3.1

Laughing at all of the videos on this bolt kit where they are calling it an I.V core instead of four core. Has no one learned roman numerals?

Well seeing that the guy who developed the thing is calling it "Ivy", then I'm pretty sure thats its name

Bought the core at west coast open and had planet eclipse tune my marker with it before the tournament, my geo 3 shot soooooo smooth and was way more air efficient. Shot a spire 260 and 3 140 round pods off my 68/4500 slp tank and still had 3500 psi left. (Full 4500 fill).

I was getting the same results stated above with the ST bolt chronoed at 300fps. Id imagine the hard tip would be the smae, if not a tad more consistant on velocity.

Yet another one implying 2500-3000 shots off of one 4500 fill. Either these people are wrong, spilled half of each pod while reloading or PE developed a spool valve bolt system that blows away the efficiency of any gun, not just spools, on the market.

I know which explanation the PE employees are going to claim!

Well I'm playing back most of the time and can't really spill a pod loading into a 260 so yes I guess I'm implying PE has done something amazing. My gun is well broken in too on a slp regulator. I have well over 150k on shots.

I guess for people claiming 2800+ per 68/45, I'll believe it when I see it. The bump to 1600-1700 is already quite impressive and brings the Geo line into the equation for those shooting a bunch.

Yah but how low can you shoot into the tank maybe up to the last 400psi? Also he didn't account for the exact amount of paint in his hopper or pods the shot counter is prolly more accurate number

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.
