a question,

Why is the control bore is shorter than other barrel backs like the stiffi and such?

I see some barrel like the eclipse has a long control bore.

Wouldn't the longer control bore makes more sense?

It doesn't just "work". It does a GREAT job.

Any updates on the .686 release date?

686s will be ready very soon. I know everyone is waiting for them. It is interesting to see how paint is getting smaller. I wonder why that is so.

Well, think about if every paintball made was decreased by.. idk... 5% size... multiply that by the thousands of cases manufactured... that is a lot of money saved, especially in this economy

in the early 2000's pmi put out a paint that was smaller bore heavier fill and claimed it 'fed faster' because of size and weight. I swear from then on paint size has been steadily dropping.

but then again, smaller paint yields more ball from a sheet of gelatin in the production process. less wasted equals more in return. even all the leftovers are made into the cheap white box paint.
