1) Looks like a penis

2) That "Wedge" seems like it would scratch up your barrel.

3) KEE barrel socks are the best. In my opinion

4) I've never seen a ball not break or fly through the sock

5) Jokes on you when is falls out of your pocket and you never see it again

6) I'd much rather buy a bunch of $2 socks than a $7 one

This is true. But new stuff is always good.

1) Yep

2) The "Wedge" is made of silicone...

3) I've blown ONE out, they are good but nowhere near the best in terms of protection.

4) Good for you.

5) Assuming that it's put into the pocket halfassedly

6) One $7 one that lasts for a few seasons vs one $2 one every season/half season (depending on how often it gets shot)

For you, your $2 sock may be all you need, but there are some people (like me) who don't remember to shut our gun off every time in the hurry to get our stuff together and get off the field. A lot of people remember, but a lot also don't.

The HK one is made from silicone, so will be able to flatten out a bit and go in your pocket just like a fabric one I'm assuming.
The Allen Paintball and Blackstar are silicone barrel socks that are soft enough to throw in your pocket during a game. They are not as nice in the pocket as my Paintball Mafia, Planet Eclipse, Tippmann (these ones rule!), Dye, and Empire fabric barrel socks.

I am interested to see how HK executes this. It is a awesome idea and is a barrel sock that you are going to make sure you get back if you ever loan it out.

I could see the store that I work at getting a few of them when they come out.

No they aren't. They're both made of plastic.

I kind of liked the Dye ones that would actually catch the ball and keep it unbroken. less mess to clean up for me.

Still might get one of these though.

Could go either way. Some pants have zipper pockets, others don't. One dive to the snake and boom, it pops out.

Mine pants don't have zippered pockets and I've never lost a barrel bag because I've made sure it's in my pocket and not halfway hanging out. Never lost one in any slide or dive, ever.

Then again, just because it hasn't happened to me doesn't mean it hasn't happened to anyone else.

I'm not really sure why its so necessary to increase the safety of a barrel condom. I have never seen anybody shoot through a sock. And all of my barrel socks were either found (pronounced stolen from a friend) or came with a gun. I don't plan on spending money on one.

Well, a cloth cover won't be destroyed that fast but if it gets a regular beating it will come apart quicker than this Ball breaker by HK.

But then again, how often does somebody shoot in their barrelsock? It happened to me 1 time in 4 years.

I hate those Dye socks. They stay ,,closed'' when you get them out of your pocket. You have to pinch the tip of the barrel in to open them.

Thanks for putting that video up. I may have to buy me one next time I order something!

As long as it is only 1 shot/ball. For normal paint, yes, it keeps it from breaking. Then after cursing yourself for shooting into your barrel sleeve, you can just remove the sleeve and marvel at it while you slowly squeeze/slide the unbroken ball out.


The bad thing with the Dye ones I had was that the *strings* would stretch out really easy within a season.

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.
