View Full Version : the true bps on full auto?

06-16-2006, 02:22 PM
okay so i know that everyone says the mr2 has been sound tested and proven saying it only goes 13 bps. if that is true then what does my fenix acs do since it is supposed to go 13 bps in full auto? all answers welcome

if the fenix is has the CAMD jount i say it goes approx. 6 bps, it doesnt reach the advertised amout of 13

well i can tell you that it goes alot more than 6.... and the mr2 for a fact goes more that 13 but ill let the people here think whatever they want to think!!!!!!11

Post this in the Fenix ACS section, IIRC the Fenix and the MR2 don't have the same grip frames.

If the company says the frame is capped at 13 bps, then the fastest it can ever go is 13 bps. They don't lie about that stuff. I don't know what the cap is on the MR2, but I think the Fenix has a 14 bps cap, so it won't go faster without a new board in it.

However, I think this was discussed a long time ago on the old forum - full auto for some reason doesn't cap the board - it's maybe a ball or two slower than the cap. There was a reason, but I don't remember why.

I'd like to hear how you know "for a fact" the MR2 goes faster. Just wondering, is all.

simple....fire the marker and goldwave the audio.

The MR2 has a 25 bps cap (or somwhere around there, not less than 20) but auto never goes as fast as the cap, my brothers 21 bps capped mongoose board goes ~13 on auto from the sound of it.

well the sound of my mr2 goes at least 20 but everyone says its been "sound tested" at 13

It's very difficult to tell by sound how fast your marker shoots - next to impossible actually. You can guesstimate, but that's about it. Dang - I wish I had copied that site that let you hear how fast a marker shoots at different speeds. I found I really only steadily shot around 14-15 bps.

However, I think the best way to really check how fast it goes is gold wave it.

A little bit more difficult way of testing is to load your loader with a specific number of balls - say 200 - then have a buddy time you for like 10 seconds. At the end of 10 seconds count how many balls you have left in your loader. If you shot 50 balls in those 10 seconds, divide it 50 by 10 and you would have shot 5 bps. If you shot 100 of those balls, then you shot 10 bps and so on.

I didn't know how fast the electronics were on the MR series. I'm surprised they set it in the 20's. Just seems not quite Kingmanlike...

I have a chronograph that can measure BPS, once I FIX MY MR2'S CHOPPING PROBLEMS I shall attempt to find what kind of BPS Full Auto gives me.

The chronos at the field I play at mostly will measure BPS too. My full auto works fine with decent paint. I'll check on mine when I go play next weekend.

Chrono I have called the X-Radar by Custom Chronograph Inc. got 12BPS, I tried it twice in Full Auto.

***THIS IS FOR THE MR2, sorry! Forgot the original question****

that definately can not be right?!

That measurement was for the MR2. Why don't you think it's right? (or why are you surpised?)

because im really shootin slow in semi then, cause it sounds as if im shootin about the same speed in semi as it does in auto

I'm not so sure it's a thing where you can do it by ear, I mean I do notice a difference in sound when I use semi-auto (I found I could do 14BPS in semi), but we are talking rounds per second...that's pretty tough measurements there and I'm not so sure you can just rely on ear.
