Stock Class in Winter
 
Has anyone else had better luck using 12 grams in the winter? It was -5C which isn't to bad but still even after 15 shots I was out of air on my phantom. The temp must really have affect on these small tanks. Ive used CO2 before , of course bigger tanks and hasnt been that bad. After 3 shots they just drop in front. I guess stock class play will have to wait till summer :(

I was playing in temps around -5 this weekend and there was a significant drop off in the number of shots but I was still getting 10-15 useable shots out of my PGP. I was keeping the 12 grams in my pocket close to my skin so they stayed a bit warmer (for a few seconds)

The colder the air, the slower the CO2 will expand and the more potential pressure each activation of the valve will dump, and thus the less shots you get out of a 12 gram.

Thats what I kinda thought. Ill just stick to open class in the cold

Put handwarmers in a pouch with your 12 grams

At one point (when I ran out of 12 grams) I switched to actually throwing the paint (old graffiti that had become very brittle) Still got an elimination!

I just play indoor speedball in the winter.

Sill with my Phantom, though. :p

We'd leave about 5 ea 12 grams on the louvers on the hood of our cars, as the engine compartment stays warm for a while. After each game put those 'warm' 12 grams in your pocket, and put 5 more new ones out to warm up.

Never tried the hand warmer, but that sounds like the hot setup.

I play stock class in the winter all the time and I get 30 shots per 12 gram still. You guys wanna guess my secret?
