This one looks a lot better than the first generation!
That being said, why clamshell?

Clamshells fixes all the problems caused by wiring harnesses, upper boards, just makes it easier to tech in my opinion.

The better question why not clamshell? It makes teching way easier like apollo said and it allows jayson to get in there and remove more unnecessary material making it incredibly light. I have one of these frames on my SFT and it weighs almost the same as my gmax with ccm because the speedy frame is so light.

Problem as in pinching the harness in the frame?
And I guess I agree with the Teching part, I was working on that black Dynasty I bought off you a year ago and was constantly removing the frame. every time I needed to do something.

I was just curious why Speeds decided to go with clamshell.

I could definitely see the weight aspect but was not sure if there was another reason.

Well, the question now ladies and gentlemen...how involved will I be once again with machining frames/paintball.

I just landed myself and spent the last 4 months deciding on new equipment, direction and the larger grand scheme of things.

I walk everyday in my shop and see my Red SFT on my wall with my 1 of 1 black frame, I pick that sucker up and I realize how much time and effort was put into paintball and the frames; I loved every minute of it (well not every pain staking minute).

What seems to make most sense here, is to see what I'm doing and how I can manage it with my life right now.

It's crazy to say, but were picking up from just over two years since I stopped doing Paintball work but that doesn't include Anodizing. I can't believe it's been two years. Though in that time, whether paintball related or not, new equipment has been purchased on a wide selection.

I see the larger than expected support but I have seen that in the past. I have also grown personally and as someone who can deliver a product quicker and more efficiently; you know...been a little more involved in the "real world" in terms of business/job.

Having said that, I think the proper course of action would be to ease myself back into my design process; get some anodizing done on some current guns I have, work with my NEW machine on various projects and start to proceed forward with my frame. What I can see happen, is a push during the colder months to start machining new frames (new renderings will be thrown up) and also with some sort of pre-order with the goal of having frames be ready in the 1st quarter of the new year.

Now it might seem a far ways away, but considering that it's already freaking September 2nd, lets be grateful

Shall we?

-Speed

Just saying, if you can make one that has a snatch grip similar to that of a Hybrid NXT, I will throw money down now for one.

IF not, then I'll throw down money once preorders on the frames are up and ready.

**** yeah, having a job kicks ***.

I wonder...

What would it take to start making them again?

What if I could help organize a proper CC style group preorder for you? Make a list of like 30-50 entries, and only once at least XX% of the orders are filled, the machining begins and whoever doesn't preorder has to spend an additional $20 or get the frame raw or black. Anodizing color of choice included with preorder and maybe like a discount to anodize your whole shocker with the new frame can be included only for preorders.


That way they can all sell and the resale won't drop at all since the prices are jacked up after all the loyal keepers pick their poisons.


****, if you made a frame like this for cockers, now...

I mean now that the DNA chipset/board is pretty much out...






EDIT: I'm also fairly positive that some collaboration with Andy (YDNA) and Nummech may garner a possiblity of selling the frames through their site or something fo the sort. Working with them I think would definitely give you more chances to be able to make some cash off this.

By far the best shocker frame. I wish I didn't have to sell mine but I need money. If I have enough money for round 2 I will definitely be picking one up.
