not so much innovation in product design. but fundamental truths of paintball need to be looked at.
its ridiculous that after almost 25 year no one actually shot 10,000 rounds to find out if overboring does really prevent barrel breaks.
in one afternoon, we did more research, and more useful research then any other paintball company since AGD. and we dont even get paid to do this crap.
its just stupid.
image if no one had tested the effect clock speed of a micro processor had on processing power in computers?
PCs have been around 25 years, and you dont see a couple of guys in there garage not even working for a company in the industry, doing better and more useful research then the industry itself.
its just mindboggling how stupid this industry is. gun designers, for the most part (there are a few notable exceptions), dont know any more then the 16 year old kids who shoot there guns.
punkworks, and the work me and bryce do is purely out of frustration that NO ONE has ever stepped up to the plate and examined these SIMPLE, COMMON, BASIC issues people have when choosing gear.
