Oh so now we have to develop a small motor that mounts on the front of the feed tube and winds the string up for you when you press a button, then another button releases the string.

Make it small and compact to fit inline with the feed tube, maybe something that replaces the end plug.

If only. I kinda like the idea, but the long string from my 15rd feed tube might cause problems but maybe not, it might be worth a try. Maybe the string would be attached to a ring that slides on the outside of the feed tube. Then you pull the ring to the back of the marker, which then pulls the follower, compressing the string.

Aren't you supposed to be making these?

If I get some free time between now and the universe ending, I am planning to make up a bunch of these. Currently I am way overworked at my real job :/

I was thinking something like that myself a few months ago when I had the same question. perhaps you could mill a small slot into the top of the feed-tube plug and mount a tiny pulley wheel that would allow the string to move fairly smoothley. the only problem sould be sesigning a ring that both moved freely as the springfeed spring expanded with each shot, but shill had enough friction not to move until another ball was loaded.

I know exactly what you are saying, I was thinking about that too. maybe a felt or something would do it? provide the rite kind of friction. To throw in crazy physics terms, you need an OK coefficient of kinetic friction, but a very low coefficient of static friction.

But I really like Ty's idea. You could remove the end of the feed tude plug and replace it with like a very extended parabolic powerfeed plug. and then have 10 round spring loaded tubes, that would like twist lock into place.

Guess I really need to steal some time from somewhere and make a few more of those 10 round springfed tubes.
