Tiberius t9 elite equipped first strike conversion kit
Tiberius t9 ranger
Accuracy, Distance, significantly less wind
Price, Marker specific, Too accurate for some sights
I shot the first strike rounds out of a t9 elite, equipped with the conversion kit. Now, the first thing I noticed is the distance at which the stay at height is uncomparable. It takes getting used to because we are all use to aiming up the barrel to compensate for drop, although i shot a couple over my opponent's head because they keep their height so well.
Relief valves set, velocity at 280.
- 80 yards, left to right wind 10 - 20 km/h. 8 inch target.
10/16 hit target, 3/16 within 3 inches of target, 3/16 within 6 inches of target
Take into consideration it's an 8 inch target, a person is a MUCH bigger target and its easy to say 16/16 would have hit a person.
The shots taken from 80 yards, and the results given, couldn't even be dreamed of from 40 yards with a standard ball.
One thing to take into consideration is the sight. If equipping it on a rifle styled marker, be sure it is a crosshair magnification sight. I had trouble at first with a stadard red dot (older t9 model) because at the distance, the margin of error is much much greater than a crosshair.
The fact that it's only tiberius conversion kit and the new t4 compatible for magazing and clip loading is limited to some.
The price - Here in Canadam the price of these things are stupid, about a buck a ball. This is equal to about 18 RPS Premiums that i currently use. So I buy them from the states and save about 50 bucks for a case (192 rounds).
I recommend getting it in a heart beat. Before first strike's release, i was a one shot one kill mentallity player. The Tiberius relief valves help with velocity consistancy = consistant accuracy.
If you're going to muzzle load them, i wouldn't recommend it, its costly, and that'S a lot of work for the price. With the t9's you have the ability to switch from standard to first strike, making it more practical.
Oh! and for those wondering....they hurt the same as a standard ball.
The price is a set back, but if one of these is worth 18 standard balls...well how many guys do you know who shoot a hopper before getting a hit? With first strike, the only way you miss, is if he hears your shot and takes cover at the last second, or else it's a hit.
