New 2009 Smart Parts Impulse Barrel System

A lot of people have been asking about what is going on with the barrel for the 09 Impulse? Such as, "What is different between the Impulse barrel back and The Freak barrel back?". "What barrel thread pattern does the Impulse use?".
We finally have our questions answered. Functionally, the barrel backs are the same. The Impulse barrel back features a different external design. A Freak compatible Impulse barrel back holds a Freak insert and 14-inch All American barrel front. Out of the box, it’s a great barrel, with the addition of a full The Freak insert kit, it’s a complete barrel system ready for any playing condition. ***Some of the first photographed and released Impulse markers were shown with The Freak barrel back.
The 09 Impulse will use the same thread pattern that was introduced with the Classic Impulse. Because this is now the thread pattern used on all Smart Parts markers, it is now simply referred to as Smart Parts threading.

Shooting the 09 Impulse Paintball Gun

OK, so i found this video on the net. It's a little shaky but get the point across. This guy is shooting the NEW 2009 Smart Parts Impulse paintball gun! And if you notice, THERE IS ZERO RECOIL!!! I couldn't believe my eyes! I mean, yeah, I have read many blogs saying there is no kick but now I believe it entirely! Check it out!

No Such Thing As Recoil for the 2009 Impulse?

The secret to Smart Parts recoil elimination is in the NEW 2009 Smart Parts Impulse Paintball Gun. It's called a Two-Stage Regulation System. Yes, TWO regulators.
The primary regulator in the Impulse grip sets(No, the regulators aren’t in the foregrip – they are in the grip frame, in a pair of compact modular packages. Both Regulators can be quickly removed, cleaned and rebuilt with a minimum of tools) the pressure of the air used to fire each paintball, and is tuned to adjust velocity and to get the maximum efficiency a poppet valve can deliver. This gives the Impulse the ability to shoot 1700 to 1800 shots from a 68ci 4500 psi tank. (RECOMMENDED HPA)
The Impulse is also equipped with a secondary regulator which drops the pressure further to an ultra-low 50 psi. That’s about half what competing poppet valve markers use for their rams, but the Impulse can do that because it doesn’t need to beat on the valve to get it to open. That makes the Impulse incredibly gentle with brittle paint, and totally gets rid of the kick. This will all help with less chopped balls, less missed hits and will allow you to be as accurate as possible.
