foamies

So i've heard some people say foamies don't do too much. But it all honesty, I think they do. Not with all paint, but today on the field I was using Medevil which is really brittle paint and my foamie fell out and I chopped a whole lot. The reason I know it wasn't breach chops from shooting too fast is I choped shooting one at a time. anyways, for now im going to switch to premiums, and eventially ima order some foamies and glue a new one in...

Thanks for the info.......

In reality the foamies REALLY dont do anything as far as "chops" or "breech breaks". In fact when a level 7 automag sees a ball fed half way it WILL slice it in half...if you dont believe me stick the tip of your finger in the breech!

My Level 10 mag lost a foamie in the middle of a game once, and it chopped once. And then it chuffed all day. Darn thing was down for th count untill I could get it cleaned and a new foamie.

The problems are probably coming from the balls rolling back onto the face of the bolt. With a foamie on the tip, you wouldn't have this problem.

lol, made a fake foamie today, cut it about the same shape so it doesn't cut off the airflow. Tested it one shot at a time on the RT, so far, no breaks, i'm still going to order a pack of real ones but for now this will work.

breech breaks? breaking from the impact of the bolt?

I have been using my Lvl X without the foamie for almost 2 years, No chopping problems. With all the mags I have had, the foamie made no difference. Lvl X or Lvl 7, didnt matter. Once they fell off, I left them off.

Thats my story and I'm sticking to it..........

I've had barrel breaks, but that was the paint, not a lack of foamie. Since switching to Lvl X, I've not had ANY chops. And thats after shooting about 12 cases of paint, bargin bin paint at that...lol.

Foamies are over rated, IMHO.
