T-shirt cannons

I'm sure most of you have seen this site, but there is some new stuff since the last time I saw it. They got a pretty slick loading mechanism on the new ones. Felt it was worth pointing out.

Also any theories on the valves? My best theory so far is that they are just a Toolies style piston valve, but I can't figure out why they have those bolts in the middle of the Bleacher Reacher Pro.

I've tried, but I didn't have any luck. Plus it just says the electronic firing mechanism is patented, so even if I did find it, it may not help figuring out what the valve is.

Heh, some of those are almost as expensive as the car I drive!
You're right it is worth asking, but it would probably just be disappointing, I'm sure whatever valve they use doesn't come anywhere close the the sort of ingenuity we see on this site every day.

yeah i sappose mate! if they have built a production valve it probly wont come up to the strength that the boys build here! nice to look at sick to hold but a pain in the neck if it was owned!!!

I think youd have better luck if you made your ouw valve mate! and it would probly last longer!!

Well in terms of how long the valves last, they might actually stand a fighting chance (they rent them out, so they have reason to make long lasting valves) I think homemade valves probably have better efficiency and faster release times.

Well, this compensates for the insane price a little bit.....

[quote=¨tshirtcannon.com¨]The Bleacher-Reacher Pro© is our most powerful and longest shooting hand-held launcher. At just under 7lbs, it shoots to the top deck of most arenas and stadiums. Variable range of (10-300+ft), built-in regulator, pneumatic trigger, real-time velocity control gauge and large bazooka style lexan barrel. It can also be customized to accommodate launching larger promotional items. Available in black, blue, red, gold, or silver anodized aluminum, canvas flight case with padded interior, air fill station, O-Rings, 20oz CO2 tank, manual, and 2 vinyl logos at no additional charge. Custom options are available such as designed logos and custom colors.[/quote]

So, they give you an air compressor of some sort, and a co2 tank, both of which arent cheap. Unless, they are giving you crappy ones. :lol:

EDIT: Oh, the filling station is just a couple ball valves, some braided steel lines, and some adapters. LOL. They want 80 bucks for THAT!!!! :shock: :shock: :shock:
