This was really awesome to watch.

I know that I am obviously very late to the game, but I have a question.

I know that PE moves forward, and the DC2 was one of the most beautifully milled markers.

There will be no DC3 autococker, however, will there be any plans for a "DC3" milled LV 1.6, GEO4, and/or the CS2?

Not stepping back to old technology, but retro styling new technology.

Good choice on not fighting the horse-sized duck. That thing would tear you apart!

The original CS1 was a nod to the DC2 milling. Go and take a look at it.

How would we go about mailing Jack some Peeps so we can find out how many he can fit in his mouth?

Are there such characteristics that you feel exist in all of your marker lines and if so, are they determined by the design of the marker (spool/poppet/etc)?
The Geo 3.5, all CS1 variants and the Geo 4 use the exact same bolt system.

My question to Jack is really in regards to how PE defines the shot characteristics and how the Design to fit or optimize them. What area of specific performance design affects what? Unqualified example- Does the dump chamber size and dwell time affect trajectory? Likewise operating pressures and dwell? I don't need an answer, unless it's from Jack, but that's the kind of question that I'd love to learn the answer to.

I can answer those questions but since you only want to hear from Jack, I'll let him.

Jack, will you please talk about bolt design re: ball stack clipping, starting with the discovery, the cure bolt and working up to the modern bolts?

1. Why did the scooped out area on the top of the Cure bolts eventually get phased out?

2. How important is a taper on the leading/front edge of the bolt? It seems like the taper should be super important, but then there are guns like the J4 Torque that are super easy on paint without that taper on the leading edge of the bolt. I'm confused as to how they can get away with that!

I didn't mean only from him so much as getting input from someone who knows the design aspects and intents. Thx

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.
