Many of you familiar with the powerclip know that half the air is wasted on each shot. Why not merely drill a hole for air to come out the other hole and use PETG as the barrel material? Thirst, no air would be taken from the other barrel, at least I don't think since it has those 2 holes at the end and only 1 lines up with the barrel ata time.

Using your idea, which is very cool, it would either be 15 or 20, both of which would take away tons of air from the other barrels...You would have to make all the barrels lign up perfectly, and drill 2 holes in the plunger tube, I think its possible, but there's no room for error. Good luck, great idea.

Sorry, but not quite.
Each shot is an undivided blast of air that is split, and goes through one or two holes: left or right. When there's a left barrel in front of it there's a wall on the right. All the air goes through the left because it's the open side. And vice versa when the barrel's on the right.
Anyways, if you have two clips, one bladderful can usually get through 2 clips.
Good thought though, I always wished that would work. But then each barrel would get 1/2 the air, and your range increase wouldn't be worth it.
Indeed, tis a shame this wouldn't work.


Re-read Thirst's post, yeah his comment about dividing air. Exactly what I said, just simply put.

Cool idea, but it would have to be done very well, and would cut your range by more than half. Half the air isn't wasted. Some of it is, yes, but the majority still goes out through the open barrel.
