Doesn't look like more than a rip off and a sales pitch.

The FAQ are quite cocky at some points.

The guy sells low power stuff. Most of it is very easy to build yourself. Unless he has cheated you or something, the general rule here is to follow our rules starting with #1. I don't say anything bad unless given a specific reason from some sour deal.

I do agree that some of his videos are a little tacky and come over like a used car salesman, but it appears to be a one man shop. The basic stuff is not anywhere in the same league as some of the sponsors here, but that is no reason to write bad things. I do not know anything about his business dealings and reputation, so I simply can't comment there.

Most people here have seen his videos.

All of his cannons seem to suffer from a flow restriction between the chamber and barrel. In my opinion, the valve and plumbing is too small, but that's my opinion, I tend to favor larger valves.

For what you get, they do seem to be expensive.. Here is his pre-built cannon page. If you are handy with a saw and PVC glue, you can build them for much less.

You can make your own opinions on the value of a 10 page downloaded manual for 20 bucks.. I wonder if he sells any..
