One hole being plugged makes your paint fly differently? Plugged with what? If you mean when the get paint in them after a break, it has nothing to do with air or porting. Paint inside your barrel causes all sorts of craziness. Curves, spins, loss of range. Forgive me, but I'm pretty sure that unless you're plugging the holes with something that's sticking into the barrel, it has nothing to do with your paint travel. Perhaps you should shoot better paint, get a better barrel, and work on getting your marker steady over a chrono.pigstick said:Why does paint go flying all over the place if one of my porting holes if plugged then?
I'm kinda wondering why someone would plug the holes too. The only reason I know of to bother doing anything to your porting, is rain. Then you just tape over them (if you're that worried about it). And again, that doesn't change the path the paint takes, just makes it louder.xPiZZeRx said:Are you serious?
Don't even bother plugging up the porting holes with something.
Myth numberr 50,421. They started telling people that because "it's quieter" wasn't selling barrels. Well, not a total myth really, but the idea that this makes a barrel more accurate...that's a myth. Yes, it lets the air out early. What does it do? Noise goes down, air usage goes up (by a fraction).SFOD_D said:porting gets rid of trublulence that would be behind the ball as it exited the barrel which could change its course
