Tribal Mechanical Speed

I'm trying to figure out exactly how fast I can make a Tribal. I know with regulations and all that, it doesn't really matter, but let's just consider it the same as building a hot-rod. Do we really need a car that can run a 1/4 mile in 10 seconds? Of course not. But we can say we own one.

That said, I'm wondering what is the mechanical speed of the Tribal; that is, what is the ram capable of doing? I don't own a Tribal yet, but I'm on my way to getting one, and it will be a nice little tinker-toy. Electronics and solenoids can be replaced. I'm mostly concerned about the mechanical limitations of the marker.

Thanks!

The ion is a spool..... the Tribal is a poppit can't really compare the 2.
Although I did make a mechanical ion that shoots pretty well

Oh lawd. Now I'm gonna have to go out and buy one of these. I forgot about this thread. All I need is another excuse to go electro-paintflinging. Especially since I'm trying to work on my PGP...
