I was thinking of designs for a new cannon and I have a supah valve and was hoping to use it in a Coax design. Any suggestions?

Okayyyy....so what would be the point in doing that. The only thing you could use it as in a coax would be the exhaust right? That would be a waste...

Maybe I am using the wrong word to describe my thoughts of this gun, by coax I mean that the barrel runs through the tank and then a valve connects the two spaces. So therefore a Supah valve would still provide the benefits it has. I got the idea from this site, http://www.advancedspuds.com/pneumatic.htm and want to replace the sprinkler valve with my supah. Is that plausible or worth it?

I can think of ways that it <i>might</i> work, <b>IF</b> the Supah is configured a certain way. It <i>might</i> be possible to use the piston-end components in a plain coupler with a minimum amount of extra work (just drill a few screw holes in the coupler).
Since I don't know the details of the Supah internals, I can't really help yet.

However...
If any forum member does have <b>reliable</b> information on the internals of a Supah (photos of a disassembled valve), please contact me via my listed e-mail. (Sgort?)

Here is a link to one of Joel's old launchers that uses a Supah in a coaxile setup.
