05 December 2008 - 11:00 PMWe used the ball cap for Rookie during the 2008 CSPPL season and it seemed to work quite well. It's quite a good idea as it forces new strategy on the teams. It does increase the workload of the referees prior to each match, but maybe it's worth it to attract more players to each level
03 December 2008 - 10:50 AMActually Krazy, no one would have to check any marker to lift the hopper restrictions.. all someone would have to do is shell out 4 grand per unit for handheld, accurate ROF/FPS chronographs for the reffs. You know, the remote kind that you can point at someone 50 feet away and get an accurate reading.
Ok, in all seriousness, instead of having the league remove the hopper restrictions, why not petition the companies that make hoppers and get them to manufacture one capped at 15bps? Right now we are the ONLY major tournament league that runs at a 15bps cap, so why does ANY player need a hopper that feeds faster than 15 bps?
Another thought would be to lower the bps cap to a level low enough that it would be insanely obvious when someone was shooting over it, say 10bps... use what hopper you want at that point, but we'll catch you quick!
30 October 2008 - 08:29 PMIt takes way fewer turns, trust me. The R&D guys came up with a ridiculously fast changer when compared to any co2 changer out there. I think it may even be faster than the one you can add to your tac clip to speed the actual 12 gram change.
Trust me, you'll be impressed. I was.
29 October 2008 - 04:24 PMI agree Chavez, but I don't work for Tippmann either, I just consult with those companies that want my input (otherwise I would be changing my screename to 'opps'..lol)
I wish I could post more, but until I get the 'go-ahead' from the powers-that-are at Tippmann, I'm not about to violate the confidentiality agreement I signed
28 October 2008 - 10:00 PMI'll finally weigh in here on this. Before I do, I will state that I did help with some of the design of the Tippmann pistol. I shot the first working prototype, I worked with Tippmann staff on improving it, and saw the latest prototype last week.
The pictures that have been circulating appear to be accurate. They are of the prototype that I last saw, one that Tippmann was NOT allowing ANYONE to take pictures of. The prototype was also kept out of the public eye in what was thought to be a secure location (turns out this was wrong).
The prototype is exactly that, a prototype. It's not finished.
Some have suggested that it's not new technology on the inside. It is. It is a design unique to Tippmann. That's all I'm saying on that.
The 12 gram is front loading, and it's fast. Faster than any other front loading 12 gram changer out there.
The grip and ergonomics are excellent. When you hold it, not only does it feel comfortable, but the marker tracks more naturally in your hand than any other pistol currently on the market.
The barrel is a threaded barrel and there will be aftermarket barrels available.
There are some other features that make this a unique and different pistol.
And in closing, be understanding. This is not Tippmann b/s. How would YOU react if something uniquely yours was stolen from you?
Be patient, be understanding, and don't judge something till you see it and try it for yourself.
