Looks like they're more trouble than they're worth - note that they require a proprietary system.

All marketing, no performance. Read about them elsewhere, and it was noted that paintball tried that years and years ago, and the concept never stuck there either.

This would never be viable for use in current models, but If a company developed a sniper rifle that could use these, then It could have a big impact. That is to say if it works the way they say it does. :confused:

Well, with this design, you can't use hop-up. So you have to test to see if the fins (maybe with a rifled barrel) can do better than hop-up.
