    Wedge design.

    I plan on designing a wedge mount pretty soon, looking for input in what you guys like about them, or what you would like to see in one. Iíve never used one so I want to make sure all things are considered.

    Iíll figure out a good angle and such, but when Iím going through the design process I donít want to over look something you guys may like or dislike. Really Iím after information like how you like the marker to shoulder, marker and hopper height, things of that nature. Pros and cons will help will help.

    For reference:

    NDZ Drop kick:



    Fireball Mountain Power Angel:



    I think both are about at 30*.

    So that is all you need in a wedge? Donít want something different? Donít care how it fits your shoulder? Height? Wrist angle? etc

    I don't have one to try, and not through my lack of looking either.

    Are you going to try a couple of different angles on a couple different angle style of grip frames?

    EDIT:
    Might be interesting to see picks of markers shouldered with 45, 86, 90, Y, and Z grips.

    Arrow my 2 cents

    1. finally
    2. 45 degree angle
    3. direct mount to grip
    4. cut for dovetail so on/off asa may slide back and forth(so it will fit inline maxflo reg)
    5. i take one thanks
    6. did the cad file i sent you work for you?

    5. i take one thanks
    Cool.

    Not really, (No offence, but you ask) it didnít have any information I needed. These are pretty standard in regard to mounts (grip mount or reg mount)

    I'm looking for information on what you guys deem comfortable and why, other wise I'll just design something I like.

    The lesser the angle, the greater the distance between the grip and shoulder. The object is to make for a tighter profile allowing you to snap quicker while staying tight by using the butt of the tank as a pivot against your shoulder. The greater the distance between the grip and shoulder, the wider your profile becomes when pivoting the marker off center one way or the other.

    However, the greater the angle, the more uncomfortable it becomes in terms of the wrist. I hope this helps.

    I'll have a render for you in an hour or so... Possibly something with a bit more mass appeal.

    Luke, I've used a wedge (NDZ Kick) for years and really like it. Bringing it up and swinging it out for snap shooting I find is much easier with the tank resting on the shoulder. I think you may need a greater angle that shortens the "pull" length when using a 68cui tank.
