View Full Version : Reball Question

05-06-2009, 01:28 PM
Do reballs perform exactly like regular paintballs?

Meaning, given the same exact gun and gun configuration (ie upgraded parts ect.) do they:

Have the same "muzzle" velocity as regular paintball?
Allow the gun to opperate at the same pressure (for LP spyders) as regular paintball?
Have the same tragectory as regular paintball?

Thank you in advance for your input.

to answer simply no. you will have to re adjust your gun a little bit. to achieve whatever your desired velocity is, they are not made of the same material so given the same settings they will shoot differently. but 280fps =280fps

If you reball alot, you will want to get a barrel or barrel kit to match the smaller diameter reball. Your efficency will suffer if you don't.

With a good small bore barrel I find they shoot a little better.and as Ferret said you will need to adjust your marker.

Yeah if you keep your marker at 280 fps and you plan on shooting people it will hurt alot.

Reball fields limit players to 250fps for a reason.

The reason i'm asking is because i'm going to begin the long (and tedious) process of tuning a couple of my guns. I bought some new parts and I didn't want to spend the bucks buying multiple cases of paint. Basically what you guys are saying is that I really don't have a choice...booo

Thanks for the feedback! It is greatly appreciated!

Well, for tuning, they're close enough. Go ahead and pick a pod up.

Reballs are great for tuning your markers.

If you tune them to use reballs then when you get to the field and have real paint you will only have some minor adjustments you will need to make to get the marker shooting great.
