    The last two days i had a idea to play with a tube setup.<br>I thought about to fill up the tubes with a fluid,water or oil.<br>Will it increase or decrease shooting behavior????<br>Or will it only give a big mess?<br>What do you think?

    i'd say, a big mess and decreased shooting behavior, i think rubber would not like being wet all the time and break early, but, if you have enough tubing it could be worth a try.

    Is it better to fill them up with air pressure?

    they would turn into balloons lol, you could try it but how to keep the pressure on them when you attach them, you would need a valve, maybe you could put a valve in place of a ball with the ball in tube attachment?
