“Linear porting with sufficiently small holes”- Sounds like the porting either on the FL carbon fiber tip or on a Stella tip.

FTR my top barrels are still the UL-s and other Dye barrels. I’m picky about alignment and fit n finish. I only wish for one or two more UL-s backs, like a .693. Also while I’m wishing, more single piece barrels would be sweet. I want the dual bore sizing like a Phi but have the larger bore at the end be more deliberate in design. I feel like the phi’s have a flaw but can’t really prove it.

Also still waiting patiently for my DyeMech.

^You might be able to find an older CF Boomstick back in .692 - I have one I keep for abnormally large Paint. They should make a UL-S back in the same size, also one in .676 for Reball would be nice.

I was thinking about getting a Silencio tip but not anymore after seeing that video and how it actually doesn’t work well in the Rain…

I know Billy has done some specific bores for teams and proshops... If you could get with him on a minimum order quantity for the larger bore then he may be able to make something happen.

Wouldn’t the channeling also help the barrel tip expel water easier as well?

Well, she is here. Feels right to have a Force back in the Arsenal.



Complete with a blackout kit. It didn’t look right without it.

Agreed, reminds me of the “Black Cherry” DSR.

Quick Update

Didnít get around to testing the Silencio Tip.

HK Army paint used today. Ya get what ya pay for. sHRugs* Speedball only today.

Markers Used
Geo 4
Force
M170R ( using the T1 Fatty Trigger and hAIR 45 valve )
CC AMP ( using the Adrenaline Bolt )

Zero breaks today. The Geo was really good but the Force just seemed more accurate.

The M170R is fast now, an official beast. I donít recall experiencing any problems while pulling the trigger, that was nice. Iím very accurate with this marker. Felt like I held my own with it.

The CC AMP was awesome today. I switched out the Stanchy soft tip bolt for the Adrenaline bolt and it just seemed better. Very accurate with this as well. Overall the CC was the most fun to use today. Also felt more then fine on the speedball field with it. Itís a little bit easier then the M170R when it comes to shooting your paint.

I used the Dye LTR on both mechs today.

Kind of thinking of shooting mechanical markers only soon. Theyíre just more fun to use. They require less work to keep them up and running properly vs electros. Results donít seem words apart either, Iím still racking up the gís and although holding lanes is a bit more challenging, itís doable.

Well we got whooped in the tournament, but I guess I should've expected it. We got way too many penalties and didn't have a good game plan all day. It was hot as hell too, so it was not a great day all around.

I think my Etha 2 with the LTR was the only marker than never went down all day. I found out some of my teammates "Didn't want to clean their markers because they're afraid they're going to break it."

These were all PE guns so my head really hurt after hearing that.

The Etha didn't break any paint either, but the GI 4 star we were shooting was very bouncy.

Hopefully Blastcamp starts a series next season now that they have 2 xball fields. Then, I'll never have to go to Pekin, Illinois ever again.

This is such a frustrating mindset and I'll never understand it.

^ It kind of reminds of baseball players and how superstitious they get.

Bummer to hear it, Viking. Better luck in the next outing. Blastcamp looks like a nice field, so hope they do host a tournament there. How were the tank fills at the tournament?

This was a different group from the main group I play with. I just jumped on with them for the event, but it was frustrating seeing another group with this mentality.

They were all dumbfounded when their markers went down and when I pulled them apart they were a mess. I tried explaining these markers don't need a ton of care but you can't expect them to just go forever without issue. It seemed to go over their head.

I think they added another compressor so fills only got down to 3500 all day which was a great improvement!

Welp, someone offered to trade their like-new CS2 for my prime XTS. We swapped markers for the day, andÖwe traded. Because Iím an idiot who shuffles through markers.

Not-so-bold claim: the Prime XTS (with mods) is a better shooter than the CS2. The CS2 overall package is better, but once on the field, Iíd prefer the XTS 10/10 times.

Softer shot. Quicker shot. Better foregrip. Better balanced/lighter. Equal trigger (with magnetic mod).
