"Learn to aim? Play tourney ball."

Funny how I have watched tourney ball and seen alot of guys use one shots to send someone out. I got a halo for when I do decide to play speedball or airball or whatever in the hell you want to call it. Just because you have a halo doesnt mean you are going to overkill. But on a ebladed cocker you would think you would want something that can keep up for when you need it.

No kidding, though it sure did sound like you were just really enjoying yourself at the Chrono station.

You mean, one shot in their string of balls hit someone, therefore "you've seen 'alot' of guys use one shots to send someone out?"



You can save your paint and all, and try and use a couple shots to hit that running guy -- I'll settle (oh yeah, me and the rest of the tourney population) for laying down a string of paint that they run into.

You've got your sniper pride, and I've got my eliminations.

No I mean from across the field there was this one dude, he was freaking crazy. He shot some strings of paint but everyone he shot he took out with one ball. Trust me I like to shoot alot of paint. But I also like to get someone out with one shot. I played this weekend and this guy was in a dead sprint and I watched this boy (about 12 or 13) shot one ball about 40 yards away (give or take some not really sure) and hit him with one shot right in the goggles. His dad was standing there and was like I cant believe he did that. This kid plays alot and his dad is a airsmith at that paintball store. It was pretty cool. So sometimes it takes both.

that's great and irrelevant now to this thread.

One balling is a fact of paintball it'll never go away.

Thumbs down

Ive had the worst experiences with my eggy2 w/z board. When i first got it and i went to play, the battery compartment popped open causing me to look for some 30 mins. for the batteries and that dumb clear spacer. So i thought i would fix that with tape. I put electrical tape on it and it seemed to hold, a week later with no use since then and the tape came off. stage 2, i used duct tape, it seemed to be holding fine so i went to the field, in the middle of a game, the tape gave way and the batteries popped out once again causing the little tabs on the cover to break. so once again i collected my things and slunked off the field. I then bought a new battery cover and placed everything back in just to break the feed neck when putting my hopper on! Not to mention that the battery cover tabs were already bending due to the pressure of the batteries upon it. So i decided to push in the conducters to the batteries to produce less pressure, long storie short, relatively same things happened as before, so I am going to a Halo to see if i can get better results. P.S. I think they do this on pourpose so they can get more sales and $$, well thats brass eagle for you.

I think I'll stick with the Warp Feed and an old 120 round gravity hopper from an old tracer.

Fast, light, small profile, keeps me from blowing the rent on paint, and starts conversations about how stupid I am.

Don't hate me because my setup is Fugly.

Actually after reading all these reviews I think I might get a cheep egg to put on the Warp Feed. ... seems just a few $$ more then a good agitator. IE a good value.

Dragunfly LCD, Centerflag 70/45, Warp Feed, 120 Round Tracer Hopper, Non-Ported Custom 8" Barrel

Shocker 4x4, 114/4500, massive drop forward, old durrable Revy 12V, Stock All-American Barrel

MicroMag with ElectroTrigger (HyperFrame) ... AKA the paint Grinder.

The HALO has less balls, therefore, it will finish feeding quicker.

Like... a half-tank of gas will be empty sooner than a full tank of gas.

yes, yes you can...


you use a timmy or other highly bouncy gun that can be put on db1.

Shoot over a crono with a bps counter

or just until it stops shooting...because that'd be the same thing essentially.

You just put the timmy or other marker onto a stand that doens't move and press trigger.

Really now? Just like that?

Despite the fact that they are perfect for velocity ratings.... they are just "off like 5-6 bps" when checking balls per second? Sure... and I wonder how you know that. Did you get out your stopwatch and test them?

I'm betting that's on a particular chrono. I have a heard time believing that all chrono's can be off that many shots.
