A switch to 50 cal?
 
What does SOC think about these rummers and possibly having to buy new markers ect. to match the change in the sport?

It would be a waste of time because it would make everyone buy new gear but luckily its just a rumor

it is a known fact that companies will start making 50 cal paintballs and paintball guns example is gimilsim.....problem is it will not catch on in the short term. if they were to switch they need to make it a transition over several years.....Facefull had a very good write up on this subject and i agree with what they say but it will not happen any time soon

I dont know about that, I thought the same thing. How could they just switch when there are so many products out there that are 68 and still more being designed and released. Talking with our corse owner he said the possibility is already being put through, procaps bought out a few companies (the only one I remember is Zap) and controle a huge portion of the market. they had a 3 year transition time, with conversion kits being a possibility for some existing markers. However, I cannot say that any of this is truth ect. im really not in the mood for having to buy more new markers. But I guess it will make paint 30-35% cheeper a case it wouldnt take long before them new markers were paid for and then some.

So someone wants to try to reinstate what someone else failed at in the 80's? Interesting but sounds like a failtrain to me.

you'd need better lenses too. because theyd require higher than 300fps to break effectively.

This right here is the deal breaker.

I was thinking there would be alot of issues with flight of the ball in general. Im not sure it would have the mass to be effective.
