SILENCIO™ FL BARREL TIP
This barrel is a perfect example of PRO DNA in action.
The Silencio strives to be the best in class in the following categories: accuracy, quietest sound signature, working in all weather conditions, and durable enough to withstand the rigors of high level play. This meant reimagining porting.
The Infamous FL Tip with Silencio Linear Porting was developed to deliver on those demands. Quiet, Consistent, Laser Accuracy and Liquid Intrusion Resistant.
Silencio uses elongated slots instead of round holes. Barrels now can have up to 114 individual porting holes. Each one has its own release of air, its own sound. Silencio Linear Porting has 20 ports. Air is given a larger path per port to escape, leading to a smoother exciting airflow and less sound from turbulent air.
Every time the paintball passes a port there is an abrupt change in the pressure release ahead of it. Each abrupt change in pressure causes the ball to move slightly. Silencio™ drastically reduces the porting holes and pressure changes. And since the slots are elongated, the pressure drop is closer to a linear function. The ball exits the barrel with less abrupt pressure changes and a smoother airflow, giving a better ball on ball precision.
Liquid Intrusion Resistance
Silencio Linear Porting is less than 1/3 the width of standard porting holes. That width was selected for a reason. Any time there is water or paint on the barrel, it gets trapped in the porting and the surface tension of the liquid holds it there and prevents it from dripping into the barrel. The next shot creates a pressure wave that blows out any trapped liquids. Fittingly, this barrel’s first tournament was Dallas 2019.
The Silencio™ FL tip was not cobbled together from existing tech. It was designed. It was engineered. Airflow analysis was performed on models in a variety of situations. Thousands of simulated shots were taken before the machine shop was even called. Only after that was completed did field testing begin. Hours of real world testing further refined the Silencio FL Tip, including the down pours at NXL Dallas 2019. The barrel met or exceeded every requirement.
Silencio™ is a product of months of engineering designed to deliver peak performance. That is PRO DNA™.
