Not to answer for Jack, but he's got an M140 hatch now. Lucky Brits get all the cool models. He did have a manual Mk7 R before that.

I have one, though.

Have you given any thought to, or have insight into, drivetrains that are not pneumatically controlled for paintball? Something like flywheels, electromagnets, etc. Reliable sources of compressed air can sometimes be a pain and a battery driven drivetrain would alleviate the need for a compressed air bottle.

In your eyes, what's the most ambitious feature or function that was axed because it was too much of a risk and what platform was it on?

Aside from the cam bolt for the CSL frame that we shouldn't have been allowed to have, what feature is your biggest regret on any platform?

Can I install the taller feedneck of the original LV1 on the LV1.6? My head cameras view gets obscured from single tube or shorter feedneck guns, but I know an original LV1 feedneck is tall enough for a good view.

Can I even buy the old style feedneck anywhere?

Which marker holds a special place in your heart from a design stand point?
Autococker or Automag?
Rum, Gin or Vodka?
From a product stand point do you think that we are begining to hit the cusp of innovation where advancements and improvements are becoming more about creature comforts and fine tuning vs. Actually inovating?
Last question, If you could only use one, Stacked tube poppet or spool?
Rum, gin, or vodka? are you in college still? A man drinks Whiskey
Oh man, my college days have way passed but I don't drink actually. Celebrations or special occasions maybe and then its Johnny Walker Black and Cola so I see your point on the Whiskey
thing but I honestly don't know what people choose to drink. Heck I always considered Gin to be more of an old timer type of liquor.

Since I am posting again another question for Jack, we have had several gtek lines now and its been a while for the etek. Can we get a updated etek5 with the new low-rise feed kneck aluminum frame and at pipe? A simple yes or no would be fine.

I know I am not Jack but I can answer that question. No, the older LV tall feed neck will not work. You will need a Geo style feed neck with the flat bottom. I believe there are the older tall feed necks still available on ANS and I’m sure there are plenty of folks like me that have replace feed necks on Geos that have some laying around.

Question for Jack: Other than a PE marker, what is a marker you enjoy using or have enjoyed using in the past?

How long does it take you/PE to bring a paintball marker to market, starting from idea/sketch all they way to the store shelves.

From an old ego collector:

-What were some design/engineering challenges that stick out in your mind when making your first in house complete marker, the 05 Ego?

-What were some of the hardest issues to solve when jumping between the major ego platforms? 05/06->07/08->09/10->11->LV

-What were your feelings when it was realized the biggest detriment to the 05/06 ego line was grip screws?

Thoughts on electronic single trigger frames for PE guns?

Planet Eclipse electronic loader/hopper. With the PAL loader being a success, why not develop something to compete with the Spires and Rotors?

What about a Planet Eclipse mask?

Any new technology you’ve considered integrating into paintball products?

Anything in secret development that will surprise us when revealed? Yes or no. Can you give us any hints to what it might be?

Hi Jack, How does one get into the paintball industry? I'm an aspiring industrial designer and my dream would be to work with paintball companies anywhere from improving quality of life, to coming up with inventive new ergonomics, etc. I'm far closer to a young gun than a veteran, so I've got time to figure it out as I go, but no matter what I end up doing, I hope I'll be playing paintball or around the industry for years to come.

Thanks!

What part or project was the most frustrating to design and get right?

What part or project came together surprisingly easy?

Hey Jack,
How's the CS2 Mech frame coming? Very much looking forward to it.
What do you do for your job that goes beyond designing markers? Are you involved with the manufacturing side of things? Marketing? Finances?
What sorts of cars are you into?

Jack, did you ever get your university project marker back? The one that was sold by Eclipse, if I remember correctly. Would you have any other info on it to share? I remember you talking about parting with it in the History of Planet Eclipse video. Thanks!

Ever thought about putting a linear generator on the bolt so a marker doesn't need a battery, but can still be electro?

I was going to patent that, but I'll never do anything with it. Needs a bunch of research around how much of an efficiency hit you'd take and whether the bolt motion alone puts out enough power to keep an onboard battery topped up. The main advantage is that it would need no extra moving parts, just some copper coils and a magnet.

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.
