Advantages of  the Trap-door Pro
Text Box: Advantages of  the Trap-door Pro

Continuing to incorporate innovative technology that enhances performance, ICE is proud to use the Trap-door Pro. 

The Trap-door Pro is optimized for use with barrel sizers/sizing systems for the best paint to barrel match yet, and therefore, the best performance ever.

The geometry of the trap door remains the same. Partially loaded paintballs are loaded fully--not chopped--when the door closes. However, the Pro uses a "fin" placed at the rear of the door which, when the door closes halfway, nudges the paintball to the back edge of the barrel. This feature eliminates any wobble that could occur as the paintball enters the barrel during firing.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

HOW IS THE TRAP-DOOR PRO DIFFERENT THAN A BOLT?

Unlike a bolt which moves a paintball down the barrel, the Trap-door Pro's fin moves the paintball only to the edge of the barrel. The result is true closed bolt performance from a boltless marker. The Trap-door Pro, like the original Trap Door, will not chop a ball as it is loaded.

 

DOES THE FIN AFFECT AIR FLOW TO THE PAINTBALL?

The fin acts as a diffuser to control airflow to the paintball and breaks up the pressure front that acts on the paintball during firing. Both actions improve accuracy and consistency.

 

CAN I PUT THE TRAP-DOOR PRO INTO A CLASSIC EPIC?

Yes. The Trap-door Pro works with older Epics but requires a body modification. This requires sending the marker to ICE and includes an installed Trap-door Pro. Modifications cost is $45.00. The original Trap Door will be returned with the marker.

 

WHY DO I WANT TO CHANGE FROM THE ORIGINAL TRAP-DOOR TO THE TRAP-DOOR PRO?

If you prefer to use barrel systems/kits to match for changing paintball sizes, the Trap-door Pro is for you. However, you donít need to. If the Trap-door Kit is used properly to size for paintballs and barrel brakes seldom occur, the performance gain will be minimal.

 

IF I CHANGE TO THE TRAP-DOOR PRO, CAN I EVER USE MY ORIGINAL TRAP-DOOR KIT AGAIN?

Yes, once converted for use with the Trap-door Pro, the original Trap Door can still be used if desired.

 

ARE THERE ANY ADVANTAGES TO USING THE ORIGINAL TRAP DOOR?

Yes. The original Trap Door never pushes the paintball; therefore, it is retained behind the ball stops before firing. The Trap-door Pro moves the paintball past the ball stops, and the ball must be retained by the barrel or barrel insert. When using the Trap-door Pro, if the paintball is small, it can roll out of the barrel before firing.
