Because the sprincler valve works on the same principle as the piston valve, wich one is better.I don't have any of them and is it shure that it's doing to work better the a ball valve?

sprinkler valves are best suited for smaller pneumatic cannons because they open faster than piston valves, however they dont deliver a high amount of volume as fast as a piston valve, therefore a piston valve is the ideal choice for a large scale pneumatic cannon

I made a small piston valve.Between this and a ball valve the difference is huge.At less then 30 psi it shots light projectiles over 100m.It is like a combustion.It also reload with air for less then 3s.

First time i ever made a piston valve was with my friend we had previously used modded sprinkler valves and then we made a small piston valve gun and the power is noticeable for the size and the marbles we shot at 90psi went out of site and with the moded sprinkler valve youcould watch them arc and come back down to earth.Is that pepsi bottle ur chamber or your refill tank?if not wat does it do?
