Wind shift?

So I was doing some test shooting today and I found that here in central California right near the coast there are some surprising wind gusts and I found they played hell with my first strikes. Has anyone done any tests or otherwise with FSR for wind?

In in the Bay area, and I have days where I have heck of a hard time lining up shot ...
Try to stay in protected area (wood or near building) and wait for the burst to pass before shooting helps

Yeah I have a tricked SSR and I was getting some real wingers. This makes me think I need to research anywhere I plan on using FSR at a game.

Me too, I pretty much exclusively play with my ssr ...
Wind can be a major issue. Get closer and timing your shot become mandatory ...
Keep in mind that everyone else ball also goes all over the place when the wind pick up

Not direct wind testing but from a recent game it looks like FSR through a Nemesis barrel has a more flatter trajectory then compared to a hammerhead barrel. Just observations, no solid testing.

It could be a little better in the wind if the FSR are not arching as much. I wouldn't expect miracles though. 20 mpg wind gusts blow real steel off course.
