I'd be surprised if a pendulum was as accurate as an electronic one for us, taking into account the laws of physics and levers and all that, surely you'd need every pellet to strike at EXACTLY the same height on the paddle to achieve accuracy.

Now consider the fact that with a 3" x 3" hole to aim at we sometimes have accidents, I don't think a tube would be a success either

I suppose you could angle your shot along the side of the tube to skim off a few fps
