Briafury, you will have to excuse Security1. He's an idiot.

There aren't many people willing to sell you their Supah, but there are similar valves on the market if you look around. You could also make your own valve, but making it Supah-quality requires special tools and a lot of knowledge and experience with these valves.

Security1, please follow the advise in your own signature.

lol did you read my post brainfury? I can make you a cheap, less powerful valve... I've sold half a dozen with satisfied customers. sgort can build you one that will more closely match the power of a supah. Those are just two options...

They may not be as powerful because they aren't made with the same level of quality and tolerances that the supah valve is made with.
I personally recommend sgorts valves

You think you need a full-port 3-inch "valve"???

Buy yourself a 3" SCH80 Union and make a simple burst-disc cannon! There's nothing as simple, inexpensive or as powerful as it can be.

I would highly advise against attempting to make it a hand-held launcher though, as you can be seriously injured.

I've gotten some to dump at pressures in excess of 130psi, with a single-layer disc fabricated from HDPE plastic.

The supah's are full port? I would think that the flow would be constricted and slowed by the 90 degree bend.

brianfury- If you want a high performance full port valve than biuld a coaxial with 3in and 6in pipe.
