I know, just use the HE poppet engine, but still, if the spoolie turns out to be as far off the claimed efficiency numbers as the g6r is I'm worried it won't be good for much more than recball.
Efficency is all about how well you maintain and tune the marker. I have been able to achieve 16 pods out of my ripper and even more out of a G6R. I don't think Bob was lying about efficiency numbers.

Questions for Tim:

Will the longer reg be avaliable as an upgrade for the V1 and V2 vics like the spool engine? I know that critical and voilent both made one, but I like this one better.

Will the spool engine casing be OK to anno after the fact for people upgrading their custom color V1 and V2's? Id hate to have a beautiful green and blue vic, and then put a black spoolie engine in it

Is that a "premium" bolt head on the engine shown?

thanks!

That's awesome! 2 guns in one. I wonder if it'll turn out the way a spoolie should be.

Nobody has decided if the extended reg grips would be sold separately. The spool engine will be available in black as the standard. I'm sure there will be a price difference for the other colors.

The bolt tip is just anodized red. Not a "supercharger"

Hope this helps!

I've said this before, but I really feel like Bob is the only one pushing the envelope when it comes to doing new and innovative things. Everyone else focuses on how much more they can mill off of last years gun and whether or not they should have QEV's or other useless things. Kudos to the BLAST crew on pushing paintball just a little bit further.

Is there really anywhere else to go? We can currently outshoot most tournament/field speed restrictions with pretty decent efficiency and accuracy that relies more on the ball and gas than the marker.

I dont know, we havent seen what Empire is going to foffer with the Vanquish, j4's marker will obviously be a lot more than just milling and stuff, and Im curious to see if Dye actually does something new with the next NT.

There are other companies doing what you said tho, and I dont think I need to list them. Bob definitely is the leader of the pack right now, we will have to see what the aftermatch is from PBE.

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.
