cool.

I think they are a good idea.

They would just have to have further development.

My original thought was First Strike works very well why not paintballs themselves.

Especially for the mag fed guns.

You don't wanna be shot with the golf ones. I took one to the hip at close range and dropped like a sack of potatoes. Those things freaking HURT.

Could we be seeing the last days of gelatin paintballs?

If First Strike is accepted by the powers to be then why not paintballs made from the same material? I know Perfect Circle already does this but not on a scale to supply the industry.And they cater to a specific industry.

The benefits would be phenomenal. Perfect round paintballs with a controlled skin. All the same size all the time.No heat or cold issues,no storage issues,won't go bad. All the issues that plague gelatin would go away.

Even the gun issues with gelatin would go away. You could use stiffer springs in the magazines.You could leave magazines loaded for a longer time.

It would offer better gun designs that would function better.

The skin could be designed to be more frangible,bio-degradable and so on.

And to manufacture such a product the system is already in place.The cost would be minimal compared to paintball making machines.

This would also allow more companies to be involved in developing a superior product.

This could even go into the realm of almost real style bullet design.Which would lead into a more reliable gun design.

These ideas could still fit within the safety specifications and rules regarding product safety.

Think of the issues that you yourself have with gelatin paintballs.

That's just my thoughts. I'm ready to move forward.
The polystyrene used isn't food safe IIRC. The gelatin rounds however are, and while nobody tends to eat these things I know I have received many a shot where I have tasted shell and paint.

I don't disagree with you, just playing a little devils advocate.

I just went outside and shot a few thru my rifle and they fly like a bat.

I was using a HH rifled barrel.

I also shot the practice pepper ball. They shot fairly good as in I hit a 4'x4' sign at 60 yards. I didn't hit it at all with the golf balls.

I don't have any knowledge of that.

I don't even know if editable is part of the requirements for manufacturing paintballs.

I would assume that if its edible it must be biodegradable.

innovation? in this industry? PEH! the ones profiting from the status quo would never see to it, even if they can further benefit from the change
