Increasingly in the process industry we're seeing shortened pipe lengths being used with a flow conditioning insert to force the flow into a set pattern. I've been curious if conditioning between the bolt and the feed would improve consistency, but I don't know enough about actual launch conditions to know if it would make things better or worse. Plus it'd either need to be attached to the bolt or the bolt wouldn't be able to push the paintball forward before firing.
There is no fate but what we make.
Setup: Azodin Kaos-D with hush bolt, Lurker Eigenbarrel, 68/45 tank, Proto Primo hopper.
