Default Re: ShockerShoot

yeah you're right. The aluminum is a higher grade, which makes the anno fade easier, because of the density of the aluminum.

But I aint complaining yet, and when I do, I'll get it annoed.

^^some call it higher grade, some call it lower, ydna on the nation believes it's higher, so I go with his opinion.
if you don't know who ydna is, he's pretty much the SP king.
his site is www.zdspb.com

It's a... 31xx or so I believe? Rather than 6061... It's not higher or lower grade, they're just generally used for different purposes... Generally 6061 is thought of as "high grade" or "aircraft grade," but that doesn't mean it's higher grade... They're just different alloys...

believe it or not you would assume this is because of sp skimping out on the aluminum/anno process to keep stuff cheap but really the process is the same price as other guns, and the aluminum is considered to be much higher quality than what is on other guns. unfortunately this higher quality aluminum doesnt accept annodizing as well as other grades, its more of a mistake than a purposeful skimp to rip you off. im actually suprised they are still using that aluminum. i know the ion got made with the old kind that they used on impulses that fades less often, plus they deep annoed those (thats why they dont reanno well)

edit: pretend the conversation talking about the aluminum is quoted... i didnt get to page 2... but YES it is higher grade, no it doesnt really pay off in the long run.

I only used ydna's site for his chart for BPS using the Nerve board. Other than that I learned everything on my own. His site does have some good stuff, I just never used it. Atleast, not like I did Otter's site when I had spyders.
