uhh, why do you want to know? anything above 300 is recklessly dangerous, not to mention illegal at all fields.

Plus, much more above 300fps and you'll start losing accuracy. How fast your paint can fly above 300fps is irrelevant since all field have a velocity limit, which is less than 300fps.

and in that case, it can go as fast as your board allows, or your fingers can move...
