    Scuba air full calculator

    No, you don’t need a licence for a dive bottle - but it would need to be hydro tested in the appropriate time frames. Insurance - maybe If you have a commercial / business vehicle then the insurers definitely have an interest. (This includes a company car and can trip you up if you are a paper...

    output pressure

    The Axe pro sits in the Empire family that he mentions at 5:30, and he says it is safe with any bottles output pressure. There are two possible problems with a bad dive knocking out the o-ring: 1) Just the ASAs bolts being shifted causing the o-ring seal between ASA and the gun. If this...

    As a new player check out the UKPSF HPA1 on air safety. https://m.facebook.com/notes/united-kingdom-paintball-sport-federation/high-pressure-air-paintball-safety-information-guide-hpa-1/349610921821652/ Some of the details on types of cylinder and approved standards are out of date, but the...

    output pressure

    It should run fine with no problem, and you should not need to adjust the guns inline regulator. However - do check the gauge at the inline regulator to ensure it is around 200psi and does not exceed 210psi It will be safe at a higher pressure as the inline regulator can withstand high...

    output pressure

    Always be wary of references to ‘high/low/mid’ pressures, they are all relative and one persons low may be anothers mid. (And they are all high pressure anyway!) See the extracts below, noting that they cover both the Axe and the Axe Pro so pay attention to the version in the header...

    Help me please

    I’d say to go for: Semi 10.5BPS FIRE MODE- choose SEMI - Semi automatic firing up to max ROF ROF Cap- Choose On. ROF Eye On- Choose 10.5BPS ROF Eye Off- You could still choose 10.5, or the lowest will be 8BPS. If your hopper will feed OK then you won’t need to drop the ROF cap for eyes off...

    Help me please

    If you select a mode such as “semi” then the ramping settings will be treated as off, they will only apply if a ramping mode is active What’s the gun? Then we can give you pointers for what to select

    Help me please

    Trigger Bounce was when a trigger would fire more than once per pull. This could be due to recoil, wobble, etc. It could also be an overly sensitive short trigger pull Electronically additional signals could be sent as the switch cycles Debounce is a setting to allow for erroneous bounce...

    Help me please

    Is it “ROF eyes on” and “ROF eyes off”? If so then that is to allow for a lower ROF if you need to switch the eyes off. When the eyes are running reliably then they detect when the next ball is in the breach ready to be fired. You can have a high ROF set, and as long as the hopper is...

    dead man walking :D

    I see no problem with this - particularly in a tournament. If you are ignoring a player that isn’t acting dead but just being non aggressive, then you are not paying attention, and/or your team communications have failed. When you are eliminated you are to raise your hand and leave the field as...

    Removing a disposable CO2 tank

    When you remove a disposable co2 cylinder you lose any remaining co2. So if you would like to use as much as possible then leave it fitted — but that does mean you are keeping a gassed up gun in storage.... keep it unloaded, with a barrel condom fitted, safety on (and / or battery off - but...

    playing footwear?

    A few guys I know use American football boots I’ve not worn rugby boots for decades For ankles it will depend on how you run and turn etc in boots without ankle support, twist fast and grip well without ankles support and you could twist your ankle With support then you’re obviously better covered

    playing footwear?

    Yes whether they are suitable will depend. In the woods I would say they are unsuitable On a good flat speedball field they would be allowed .... unless the surface is unsuitable for the type of stud etc
