Last gun used the same design, same hose, didnt have any problems.


I'm familiar with the materials, it's not good practice.

You seem a little defensive regarding other's suggestions. There's no need to be. You've built a decent cannon here and posted it for opinion from other spud gunners. Maybe give em a little space...



Dont mean to be, but the comments are just "you shouldnt have done that" then with no explanation.

You'll find most people around here are genuinely trying to be helpful with their comments even if they may not fully explain themselves. If you don't understand where they are coming from, just ask them to explain further, hold a real discussion about it. We all learn in the process.

If you come across too defensive, you may appear unapproachable and will just be ignored.

Anywho...like I said before, this is a decent cannon you've built. It's not be the best performer or the best looking but certainly not the worst.
