Because the velocity is too low?

Bolt might be upside down (I still do this all the time)

Dirty barrel might be causing topspin?

Aqua covered the basics. The bolt upside down is a newbie thing and very popular.. However when us experience guys do it that's because you took our attention away. :evil:

oh, that's very true. aggravating and makes you feel rather stupid.

Back when I had my last set of two cockers, I chrono'd once, broke a ball, cleaned out everything, and walked onto the field...

had a guy looking completely the wrong way in my sights, out in the open (I think he thought if he couldn't see the field, nobody could see him)...

I lay out 3 shots, they all kinda just flop out the barrel, he turns and goggs me.





my bolt was upside down :D

I had an excuse, I was in a rush to get onto the field so I didn't miss a game. If I'm not rushed I can do stuff right

felt like i was new again..

I scribed an arrow on mine, "UP", to make it easy to see at a glance if I'm a retard. Or, grab a Black Magic venturi, which can go in both upside down and rightside up, and shoot the same both ways.

Don't feel bad, I've been using a cocker for 9 years (dear God I'm getting old) and just recently put it back together, with the valve upside down...

Don't feel to bad I've done the following over the years...

Bolt upside down.

Forgot to reinsert the cocking rod after adjusting the IVG over a chrono (its shoots once and then packs paint into the barrel by the way)

Had the pull come out (It work fine until it blew a PB up the feed neck in to my hopper, making one heck of a mess and destroying the flex sensor in my hopper at the same time).
