Artifact cage is the flat one, no canting AFAIK.

Full set if figures here. This should equate to near a 150 average on a Stryfe!

Well, that's going to be interesting with the 1 joule limit if/when it comes in...

I contend Nerf flywheelers are not covered by that legislation as they are not a barrelled air weapon. Waiting to see what more can be got from this set up.

The only thing the cage is doing is rigidly holding the motor alignment and damping vibration. This supports my long held and publicised opinion that a rigid, concave wheel with a smooth surface that collects foam build up and a well set up flywheel gap will smash the flywheel ceiling. No gimmicks required.

And setting the flywheel gap (in conjunction with the flywheel diameter) o'course.

Told yall they looked promising Smile One thing to note is that workers are more balanced so using these in a stock cage may get noisy. That said I absolutely looooooove my cage and wheels, the sound alone brings a smile to my face with the nice quiet spin up and little pop as the dart get compressed and shot out like a paintball coming from a marker. My stryfe is only a 2s honey badger set up and is definitely performing waaaaaaay better than any flywheel blaster I have encountered. I notice a lot less dart burn with these than with stock flywheels which I am guessing is because of the improved traction.

I was undecided and wanted to see some hard evidence before I bought some. There seems to be allot of love for them and clear performance improvements.

Edit: Just to clarify are we at the conclusion that the Artifact cage with smooth flywheels will out preform the Artifact cage with worker flywheels in?

I believe so. The artifact wheels appear to be slightly larger in diameter (the spacing between the motors appears to be the same as the standard cage) meaning they provide additional "crush" due to a smaller flywheel gap (friction is proportional to the load applied perpendicularly to the surface). Serrations, such as those on worker flywheels, will, at best, make no difference (except possibly in wet/damp conditions) but, at worst, could rob performance vs. otherwise identical flywheels with a smooth surface.

Gentle reminder from a game organiser that while, yes, these figures are indeed very impressive most UK games cap out at 130FPS. Just remember you either need a way to detune a blaster or have something else on standby with these sorts of things. Smile

Toruk has confirmed that this indeed the non-canted version. I'm still not sold on canting as a thing especially since I'm currently working on removing it from the train wreck that is the Hyperfire.

This has been a question of mine for a while. Why do we have a 130 fps limit? I completely understand if it's a game full of kids they won't want to be hit.
However, Bristol Blast is mainly adults so do we need to apply the limit?

You fine tune and spend allot of time modding your blaster, then basically sacrifice performance to play games. Wouldn't we want to make them preform to the best they can?

With the progression and engineering of new aftermarket parts soon it won't take much to break the 130 fps mark

I don't have mod power here so I can't split this thread. ON would you mind and delete this post, too so this thread stays on topic? I think I'm probably the originator of the 130FPS limit so I'll put a justification over in General Nerf in a bit.
