I just thought it might be a small factor that could be taken out. But thanks.

In my day, we put the balls in a 'rock tumbler' for 30 minutes to mix it up better (paint used to seperate like italian salad dressing).
Then we charged more $ for it, for 'tumbled balls'!
Oh well, those were the days...

We also had "tube spinners".

You would put your tube in a device with a large crank on in. Turning the crank spun the tube extremely fast.

I thought they were a gimmick. But one sunday, the entire Grave Digger team came by for us-verse-them game, and every one of them used tube spinners.
It was pretty amusing to watch then go through the "ritual" before every game.

Its not that absurd. If im filling up pods with paint for the day, and just happen to notice some extreme dimpled rounds, ill throw them into they own pile. Will use them for chronoing, practice, or othersuch.

I must find one of these devices to use at Boston Paintball to confuse the tourney players.

Looks to be just about the right bore, for a field cannon.

I think I need to find or build my self this tube spinner. Hmm...

You bet it has been done in the days of $.25-.45 paintballs for tourneys, we would measure and tumble to ensure the best play.
