Paintball Atlatl!

Don't know what a Atlatl is? Look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlatl

I was fitting the hose for the Q-loader onto my A-5 and I was playing with the hose and paintballs to make sure I cut the right length.

So I had a hose designed for paintballs to move high speed through, and it was about 2' long. I put 4 paintballs in it and then flung the hose, and much to my excitment THEY TOOK OFF! I was flinging paintballs across the backyard into the fence and they hit hard enough to break.
If cavemen played paintball, this is how they would have done it!

Ive seen some paint granades made like that.

I have a couple of these hoses. I think a game would be up close, very brutal and aggressive.

Iv launched golf balls out of a short peice of PVC with a blocked end. I could easily fling it 50yards+ Tried it with paint but they were too light for the size of the pipe. Good idea though. Find out how fast you can get them.

It would be hard to aim it through a chrono.
Here is a video:

I sometimes do that with the barrel like during times i run out of air and it is just me and my cousin having fun.

The vid is fine, putfile sucks... give it time to load, thats how streaming goes.
Yes now if my marker siezes up at least I can pull my hose off and get prehistoric
Ghostslinger

haha shrewd very shrewd Very Happy

Should give it backspin too. See if launching 5 creates and effective shotgun.
Nickodemus

If you load more then one at a time the spread is huge because they exit at different times and the hose is in motion.
I wonder how I could modify it for more consistent release. It is good how it is now because it's hard to be accurate but gets better with practice.

Try to send one past your chrono to see how fast it goes.

That is awesome. It would be so much fun to get someone out that way.. Cheers

I want to have a one-on-one with a friend of mine but we probably would end up beating each other with the hoses.

This makes me wonder if you would be better off putting a clump of paintballs in a sling: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sling_%28weapon%29

As soon as I get some time I will try the Q-loader hose over the chrono.

Makes me wonder if any of you have played with those small cal paintballs in the blowgun.
