09 June 2010 - 04:57 AMI fear that my simple seal did not express my excitment over this issue.
Im seriously thinking about getting som FS paint and doing this mod to my one true paintslinger, the entire concept makes perfect sense, Ive always wanted to be able to slide the grip foward and drop in a better shot for that rare shot but of course that wasnt a viable option in my youth (I was using PMI premium at the time and that was the best available to me then).
This is too freakin amazing of an idea and I want vidoe on the performace, do it or ill ban you or not.
joy be the prolite
lol, I'd like to do a video and may actually get around to doing it, but I can tell that it's not going to happen for a while. Like you, over the years of playing, I wished I had a way to make more accurate and longer shots. FS rounds can make that happen. Ages ago, when these guns were new, I actually had a Pro-Lite. It was my upgrade from the SL-68. The Pro-Lite served me well, but eventually fell to the wayside as paintball gun technology advanced. I never thought that I would end up buying old rentals to refurbish and put back into service as a specialized marker.
Very slick! I love how it's so easy to switch between the two types of paint. Very handy incase someone gets too close and need to lay down some fire while pickin people off from the bush!
Yeah, this is a huge advatage. I get bored just sitting in the back. Having the ability to use FS and regular paint is perfect for my style of play, but there are some sacrifices.
1. With regular paint, my firepower is limited to Pro-Lite ROF, which is pretty slow by todays standards. You won't be shooting ropes, but it's more than enough to shoot people out. If you like to aim, you're not going to notice the difference. I've run an old school Revy, which is a great hopper. 200 rounds and agitated feed. Batteries last forever. Lately, I think I like a plain gravity feed 100-round hopper. It's got a small profile, it's light and gravity feed on a Pro-Lite isn't really a handycap in terms of ROF.
2. Chrono speeds. Because there is some difference between FS paint and regular paint, you're going to see different velocities when shooting both paint types from this gun. I've found an increase of about 10fps with FS rounds over regular paint. I chrono the gun to max field allowed velocity with FS paint. This leaves me shooting a slightly slower velocities with regular paint. It may look like a disadvantage as first, but I only switch to regular paint use for short and medium range encounters where the reduced fps isn't a handicap.
3. Pro-Lites were designed in the days of CO2 and function best on CO2. I'm working out a couple of easy solutions for HPA use, but until then, CO2 is the way to go. Also, if you really think about it, CO2 isn't much of a disadvatage for this gun. It lasts longer, so one fill will last you all day, if not a couple of days (depending on your trigger finger). I also don't have to worry about velocity drop of with CO2 on this gun, because you're not shooting ropes.
I'm seriously tempted to try this on one of mine as well. I need to get some rounds first to make sure I get the fit right.
To get the fit right, I worked in small increments, constantly lining up and feeding a FS round into the breech to make sure I make the right cut.
If any fields in your area allow FS rounds, go for it, or buy one of my two spares.

08 June 2010 - 07:21 AMthanks. i've been using it whenever i can since last year. really wanted to field test it proprly before putting info out there. one thing to note is that pro-lites love co2. on hpa, i'm around 250fps regular paint/260 FS rounds, but on CO2, i can dial it in to whatever i want. usually keep it at 280 with FS, depending on field rules.
