i never chopped with my bushy....of course i'm the man...

in all seriousness though, i never chopped a single ball in my old bushy (B2K2) or my current angel...

...now if you want to see a blender you should get a Stroker...sweet gun but it chops like crazy!

in fact i'm trading my PGP Stroker for a MacDev upgraded 2nd Gen Bushy (silver) and am pretty darn excited about it...its gonna be an awesome project gun (hopefully a microbushy annodized in yellow)...

hope that was helpful...but i doubt it

if you have a revvy it shouldn't be a problem, i suggest a 12, but if you don't really rip out balls then i'm sure you could get by with a 9vlt. also they blowback air so on the rare occasion you might chop some if you are running and shooting

I've had mine for about 7 months (played about 7 times with it) and I've only chopped paint once...... the time I tried the full auto feture in my back yard...but when playing I never had a problem.

On the review at www.paintballstar.com they were sayin that bushies have alotta kick, and sometimes a ball might not load all the way in b/c of the kick on it....i dont think that it has enough kick to to cause those kinda problems

Not too happy. My bushy currently chops occasionaly, usually once in a full day of play, twice if im unlucky. I have a 12v revvy which just broke, so I'm thinking it could've been my revvy. I'll prlly get a ricochet. or an angel heh.

how much you chop depends on how fast your trigger finger is. I chopped paint like crazy until I set my trigger really short, which actually slowed me down (I fire faster with a long trigger for some twisted reason) and now I don't chop at all. Maybe once every other case.

The only time i have chopped is when i didn't have a 12v revo and I shot at like 5 guys doing a freight train. Since then i have had no probs, (i now have a 12v) IF you are have major problems, just lower your rate of fire and make sure it is tuned correctly.

You should NOT chop balls.

I do not chop ANY balls because I have my gun correct adjusted.

Are the balls breaking inside the gun, or in the barrel?

If they are in the barrel, it is obvious that your paint does not match the barrel, which you need.

Check to see that you have you dip switches, ball detente, LPR, and HPR all set correctly.

Also, make sure you don't have a bad battery in your gun and make sure your hopper is turned on (if you don't have a 12volt, you are in trouble). High-rises also help so you have more balls stacked ready to fire.

If all of these are true, then you should not chop at all...

I can't believe this that one guy said it was horrible when he chopped twice in one day, thats a joke man before i got my defiant. my micro-mag RT chopped 40 ball's out of a full revvy now thats horrible.

I was so siked to get that when twitcho showed us that (by the way, that's his secret weapon) so i ordered a 9vt revvy used, because i would get a new board anyway and it would be 2X as fast so i get it and it's pre brass eagle, i dunno if i should be happy because it's pre BE or mad because i can't put the new board in.
PS. it matters because the new 9 vts have a fake battery in them so you can put in another battery, the old 9 vts are smaller.
