TB Goes to LB

Unread postAuthor: brogdenlaxmiddie » Tue Feb 26, 2008 10:29 am

Hey, I recently built a TB cannon and it worked pretty damn well. But, I found that Lacrosse Balls ( which are a tiny bit less than 2.5" in diameter) fit pretty well in some SCH 40 2.5" PVC pipe. Lacrosse balls are about 5 ounces in weight. So, If you are the proud owner of a TB cannon... Try a LAX ball and you will be most definitly suprised with the reaction!

Note: Lax balls tend to give a bit more kick than a tennis ball :twisted:

kind of pointless poll... :roll:
Anyways, I would think that they would gather quite a bit of top spin leaving the barrel, due to their rubbery manner. Beware when shooting at a range that they will curve down quite a bit.

Do not look back, and grieve over the past, for it is gone;
Do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come;
Live life in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.
