Default A question

I have a question about fps you know Goggles are only industry-rated and guaranteed to 300 fps can a MR1 ever hit at 300fps enough force to do that to google because today i shot a guy in the face with my Electra in the googles and the Eye prtection Shattered and the shells of the paintball gun cut him up a little bad and i dont think im gonna be paying with it anymore

Welcome to the forums!

Let me ask this first. Did you chronograph the gun before you played, or just quess-tamate the speed? It is very dangerous, and painful to play with guns chrono'd at speeds higher than 300 fps. You should ALWAYS chrono. However, I've never actually seen gogs shatter, and I've seen several hit with very high speeds, upwards of 380 fps or so...

Could have been crappy lenses. But, it's a good example that a tested and approved chronograph should always be used. AND to change your lenses frequently!

Any marker can reach 300+ fps. Yes an MR1 can my buddy chrono'd at 317 with his MR1, he had to replace the spring but we obviously didn't play until he was under the fields 280 fps limit. As far as shattering a pair of goggles, the lens can be damaged by face shots, chemicals, and time. Even worse sometimes you can't detect the damage.

I have been playing since 91 and the only gogles I have ever seen shatter were a pair of shop gogles that some one brought out. They ended up being used as a "this is why we don't play paintball with shop gogles" demonstraition. Either your gun was very hot close to 400fps or the gogles were damaged/defective.

nah ... don't use cleaners period ...

expecially if you have a thermo-cured lense ... it'll screw it up ... just use cold water to clean it off ...

Or somthing like RAGE anti-fog spray, it works well enough for me, and helps to clean better, but otherwise water is much better than using somthing like windex.
