New "Supah" Valve Project

Unread postAuthor: mattyzip77 » Sat Aug 20, 2011 3:17 pm

So, I got a supah valve from a fellow spudder and have started my next cannon. I threw something together real quick using parts from other cannons cuz after all, its a supah valve, and I couldnt wait to try it!
The power of this thing is just sick! One of my first shots was at only 30 psi and it put a 1 1/2 inch tennis ball through my fence like it was nothing. I figered it would just bounce, but I was wrong! Im using a 3/4 inch q e v to pilot it with a 1/4 inch ball valve at the moment, about a 28 inch chamber if you count the Tee at the end, and a 36 inch sdr 21 1 1/2 inch barrel for golf balls. I got a deal on this valve, but in my opinion it is worth every penny that spudtech charges. I have some big ideas for this valve, so stay tuned for something bad ass in the near future!! :shock: :shock: Here are a few pics in the link below!!! Photo bucket wouldnt work, sorry!!

@alster you can get small tennis balls at a pet store. I dont know exacly if they are 1 1/2 inch, however, they fit nicely inside of 1 1/2 inch pipe!! 8)

Dragon, PVC, Tennis ball launcher.. Couldn't resist.. Chamber of the Dragon, a PVC tennis ball launcher. Now the tread has a dragon.

With a good valve and a large chamber under low pressure, it is amazing how far you can launch a raw egg. Try it.

Get the Tough Balls brand tennis balls. They are heavier and tougher.
