Amazing how much a difference cleanliness makes

So, was doing some drop tests for no particular reason with reball, and was getting REALLY bad results with everything except the Pinokio (at least, after I put batteries in it that weren't deal already) and the Fasta. Started looking at the reballs, and realized I hadn't washed these things off in a LONG time. So washed them and oiled them a bit, and WOW, what a difference.

Side note - Spire sucks with reball, even clean.

I've been told that he spire will feed reballs quite well. That's interesting.

Also, there's very few hoppers that feed reballs. The eggy, the pinicchio, and... a gravity feed?

Can't include the rotor on this one. I've tried with my Rotor to no avail. I haven't had any problems with the Spire, but I would like to try out the new Pulse.

It does look poorly built, but I'd like to try one out for myself.

Looks ugly, agreed. I hope to get one used in a few months cheap to try out.

hold on, im getting confused, I thought GI milsim was associated with SP and was producing all the 50 cal stuff

so did the gardner bros go their own way and make gog and now gi milsim became gi sports and is now their own entity?

GI is/was ASSOCIATED with the G-holes. It did indeed produce .50 cal versions of the SP markers. It is OWNED by the Italia brothers however.

GI Milsim was just one of the "entities" of GI Sports. The same way JT and Viewloader are 2 "seperate" entities that exist within Kee.
