VL Revolution

I have a Spire, I've had a Rotor, VLocity, all the greats. With the standard being 10.5bps, why am I not seeing more people rock the original 12v Revolution? If not in tournaments then at least in practices?

With the proper mods it can easily shoot 10.5bps all day long. It's lighter weight and super reliable. The only thing I don't like about it is that you have to take like 8 screws out to get inside to clean it and the profile is a little higher than a Spire.

As a guy who rocked a revvy for years, I'd love to use one again. On a rec gun, it'd probably be great.

On the speedball field, the revolution shells are much more brittle than today's loaders. Also, they consume alot of batteries compared to rotors & spires.

Depends on which shell you have as to how brittle they are. Agree with the battery statement not to mention how easy to clean today's loaders are that is why i still have four old revs I never use (use Rotors now). Plus you can only get $30 for one and if I am going to give them away I would rather just keep them like my Tippmann 98's can't get anything for them either.
