    those pics are sooooooo blurry

    That rod in the can was sharpened, so it can't have INSANE POWER, but on the other side you can't really get a rod in a can without it being sharpened. This is pretty cool though. :D

    its easier to get an unsharpened rod through 4 layers of cardboard then it is with sharpened, well, it was for me

    I think it's because when the sharpened rod goes in the card board it pushes the board to the sides, so it creates friction. The unsharpened rod just hits it and goes clean through.

    I thought that too, but didn't think anyone else thought so, because a sharpened rod makes a small entry hole, and an unsharpened rod makes a hole the right size, reducing friction

    the only thing is that for a non sharpened rod, it takes greater initial force to get throught the cardboard because it has no piercing power.

    i get unsharpened rods through 4 layers or corrugated cardboard from about 5-10 foot away :) but not with this gun, although i've never tried with cans
