Why do people hate RBG's or ARBG's? Answered

I post a lot of RBG's and it seems that they don't appeal to people as much as the Knex guns that shoot rods.

generally the RGB's are not as exciting/big as the other guns. they are easily 'skeletonised' and they are not the powerful, therefore making the gun not as good as the rod guns, which have more style like that of a real gun.

what IAC said. And there is no innovation in RBG's. My first rbg was hated and I havent gone back since.

There is innovation to be made to RBG's. Its just no one bothers to try.

No. That is basically a repeating slingshot at this point.

Apparently, to DJ, for it to be innovation, it needs to go through cardboard.

... People need to use their brains. An RBG is practically an upgraded slingshot. You guys are in blind love with slingshots yet you hate rbgs? You can use rbgs to shoot pieces too. Yeah the ones that shoot actuall rubber bands aren't that great but guns like the my Stg and Irwinner's guns are actually pretty decent.

the guns with a ram on it looks better and gives a gun a more "gun like" felling to it. not to mention that if you want to get some major distance, your best luck would be with a rod gun because a rubberband gun would have more air resistance and the rubberband will be to light to travel far through the air. plus, when a gun shoots a rod, it is more like a bullet than a rubberband, its all in the looks.

rod guns usually are more complex like with grenade launchers and scopes, RBG's don't have a scope because rubber bands vary with their shots due to air resistance and sudden gusts. and when someone is coming at you with a grenade like in a knex war you can use a rod gun to blast it out of his hand or blast it in his hand but with a rubber band gun your only hope is to either shoot him to death (highly unlikley) or to run away (which is not fun)

U can have a scope on an RBG. Even though it wouldn't be accurate.

They arn't really hated, just that knex rods and such have much more mass. More mass = more distance. Elastics lose speed and power really quickley. Rods carry much further.

True, but that doesn't detract from the harmless fun of RBGs.

For sure. They are actually good for indoor wars, as they dont massacre walls, but still sting at close range.

Yeah. Rubber bands are pretty epic you have to admit, my friend & I made a rubber band powered cross bow with trigger, & it's pretty consistant with firing. We should a metal rod half an inch into a plain (plane?) tree. (forgot spelling, sorry)
