Has everyone also forgot that he has to pay for living expenses? Water, food, gas.... It all costs money... and frankly, I would pay every penny of that price to buy a supah valve.

I desgined a supra valve on paper in detail, it is a barrel sealing valve 4" tee solid pvc rod that is turned down a little. The proce to make it is $30. BUT the time and energy is when the real money is dropped. If i was makeing them I would charge the same price. And did you ever thing that the shipping is included?

When your the only one who has the ability to make, or at least does make a particular product you fall into supply and demand. If people demand it he can supply is for anything he pleases. No one else makes them but him if he wanted to he could charge $500 for one of them. Its his createn, he designed it, built, tested and made it again to be perfect. Dont complain until you have attempted to build one yourself. His prices are high on every single thing that he personally makes because no one else makes them but him.

Let's let this be the final determining factor: Is ther any other valve that is of the same size:power ratio? No. That's all there is to it. This valve it the best out there and hell, if you don't want the best, then don't buy it.

who would want to buy a homemade valve from someone when you could just make a coaxial gun or gun with sliding endcaps inside

That would also be home made... the supah valve is pro-grade.

hey, did you hear that in one of his very few posts on his forums, he said that he is not making many more supah-valves at the moment bercause the income is not worth it, so he went back to being an electricion*(sp)

Funny... it seems like you're trying to get people to buy your Supah valve.....

What do you mean the income is not worth it? 130 bucks a pop, he makes more on one valve then some people do in a day.

Huse_spud, don't go comparing a supah valve to a end-cap piston. There is obviously going to be a huge difference. Any person with a brain can see this. How about you buy one, then make a gun with it, and then make the same gun with a normal piston. Do a distance test with the same pressure in each gun and see which one wins.

Shrimphead, don't go assuming everyone sees what you do. <i>Obviously</i>, if he thinks that a endcap-pistoned coaxial gun will preform on the same level as a supah valve, it's not obvious to him that it won't.

Nor is it obvious to me.

Ok, ok. But I really do want somebody with a supah valve to do a test compared to a "normal" barrel or chamber sealing valve. Is there anyone with a supah valve who wants to do this comparison? Has it been done before?

i agree, this whole argument has gotten quite childish. face it people, none of you are going to go out and build a supah valve, mass produce it, and sell if for say... $80. the effort needed to create one is too much, thats why i don't sell anything, i build it, and i keep it. mostly because the time and effort needed to create something like a supah valve can be a little exhausting and tedious. try purchasing a valve with the same efficiency online, the price range can go up into the hundreds.

stick with the supah valve, and shut the f*** up.
