Its like only playing with only .68 paintballs because that's what the box says.


So when your buddy asks you... "Hey! What insert are you using?" And you say. ".685". Then he tries his 685 only to realize that the insert is waaay overbore. If he's ignorant of the idea of poor manufacturing, he'll just think YOU'RE ignorant and go about his business.

When you get interested at all in paintball science instead of pantball art... That's when it's handy to have inserts labeled on size.

To counter MaD's personal experience... I've bought 4 sets of stainless inserts. Between the 4, I almost have one set that is correct. The rest have all been measured and re-engraved with their real size... Sometimes .007" off of it's label. The biggest crap-shoot with the stainless serts, though, is actually poor deburring. Almost every stainless insert I've picked up has had an edge that wasn't deburred. Great for slicing paintballs up when you're trying to underbore. You know.

Just ordered a few more inserts from Ty. Between SP,Ty and PPS inserts,I'll be able to get something right :rotfl:.

I've actually had to use larger size freaks due to bad field paint. You know the out of round stuff that some fields carry. The stuff that wasn't stored correctly.

Later,
Blackrain

i would love to pick up some gog freaks inserts if it is shown that their tolerances are spot-on, for the time being, i will stick with the expensive palmers brass inserts.

Lets remember that the paint is not perfectly round either and the 3 or 4 balls that you might test your inserts with are not going to be a perfect sample out of 2000. Even over the course of the day, the paint seems to change due to humidy and temperature.

If the paint barely drops through and I can blow it out if its stuck, thats the insert to use regardless of what number is says vs the actual true measurement. I have 4 inserts that are progressively smaller than the one before. Thats all that matters.

I ordered mine from ProjectPb.com a few days ago and they arrived in one day. I broke out the calipers tonight and measured. Both of them are spot on what they say they are.
