    Exclamation MAX ROF setting on EMAG 2.4 board = INCORRECT!

    Well, I did another one of my silly tests... all in the name of engineering curiosity...

    Since I'm still a little green when it comes to EMAGS, I hope I'm not rehashing anything that has already been discussed in detail previously.

    INTRO

    After recently recording some demonstration videos, I noticed I was not able to rip as fast consistantly (without skipped shots) on the EMAG as my TIMMY.

    Why couldn't I rake the emag as fast (consistant rhythm without skips) as I normally do?

    Was it the trigger setup?

    Was it the HES?

    Was it the 2.4 board?

    Knowing that I can rake a trigger faster than 15 bsp (as seen in my Tunamax and GZ Clammy videos), I wanted to test the MAX ROF settings on the EMAG 2.4 board to see what the results would be.

    ASSUMPTION

    If I can rake the trigger faster than 15 cps, then if the MAX ROF is set to 8, then I should be able to record a max rate of 8 cps. Like wise for ROF = 10, 12, 14.

    For ROF=16, 18, and 20 I should be at my theorectical limit and not be able to reach top ROF.

    The quesiton which drives me is:

    Are the MAX ROF settings on the EMAG accurate?

    TEST SETUP

    ANYONE with and EMAG and a COMPUTER w/mic and sound analysis software can duplicate this test.

    - I removed the left panel grip of my EMAG and placed my computer microphone next to the noid.

    - After setting the MAX ROF at various limits (i.e. 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20), I raked the trigger as fast as I could.

    - I recorded each session to a WAV file in order to analyze my true ROF (noid cycling rate). I isolated the fastest split times between noid clicks, which where represented be the peaks in the audio signature.

    RESULTS

    For each MAX ROF setting I was UNABLE to achieve the MAXIMUM SPEED!

    When the ROF was set to 8, I could only average 6.6 cps. I should have topped out at 8! This doesn't make any sense since I know for a FACT that I can rake at least 15-17 cps.

    In order to better understand the results, I conducted the same exact test for MAX ROF settings of 10, 12, 14, 16, 20.

    ALL ACTUAL RECORDED ROF were about 18-20% SLOWER than the MAX ROF set in the gun.

    CONCLUSION

    If you set your 2.4 board to 20, be advised that you can only shoot a max 16-17 bps...

    It is not you who can not shoot 18-20 on an EMAG, it's the gun.

    (I have the sound file recordings saved, however, they are too large to post)
