I will not pledge cause I'm broke. Also I recommend you, instead of using a different barrel for the titan, make different calibers. Good luck though!

No. The stock Titan barrel has a ridiculously large amount of dead space. The replacement barrels reduce that and also allow for interoperability between blasters. If everyone using rockets uses the same barrels, then they can be fired by anyone on the field. Also, creating different calibers would require additional minimum order quantities for the additional sets of materials.

I agree. If we get a firing video, I'll go for 10$, I just dont want to buy them, to discover they shoot as far as arrows(I have lots of them), because then I wouldnt really need them. I'm not saying I doubt your word on the ranges, I just would like to see a video.
Forsakenangel: Wow, 7 posts and only 2 of them have to do with the topic.
Go Nerfhaven!
Langley: I'm sorry we went off topic in your thread about exploding Easter bunnies. We'll try to do better next time.

Sorry about that. Every time I have a chance make a video, it has been raining. It's getting a little depressing, honestly. I am going home for lunch today, maybe I can set up my camera and do it then.

Small update, as requested, here is a picture of the completed prototype screw-on Titan barrel. It is rough, the mold needs work, but it works. I don't know why I only have one, crappy, beat up rocket here at work, but it still fires 50+ feet from a stock, leaking Titan.

I made a video testing out the missiles I got from Drac. Kane is filming, but has tendinitis in both his wrists, and I refuse to edit video at any point ever, so here it is, raw. There's a good shot at 2:10 and an even better one immediately after it at 2:40.

Thank you for the awesome and hilarious video, Ice Nine! Also, an update is in order! We are so close to hitting the goal mark now! There is only $19 remaining to be pledged before we hit the goal! Thank you to all of the contributors. We just need a couple more people and we will be in business.

Yep, we have now reached the goal! There are still thirteen days remaining, so feel free to continue to pledge, as all contributors will still receive free shipping on future orders as well. Thanks for your help so far, folks! Time to make some phone calls.... Woo!


EDIT: Ooops, I guess someone bailed while I was writing this. Oh well, let's keep working on this!

Five dollars now, one missile soon ... plus lifetime free shipping.

Not to mention you get to be one of the few who have this very unique ammo. Show that special someone that you care. BY SHOOTING THEM IN THE FACE WITH ONE!

Okay folks, this is the final push! We have six days remaining in the campaign period, after which we have to wait up to fourteen days for the funds to be dispersed. Let's keep our momentum going, and thanks for all of the support!
