the epic

Yeah guys...you gotta admit. The epic sucks. I mean wow. It really does. Who would buy a gun that like no one at all knows anything about. Who is this gun made for? Rec guys? Buy a tippmann. Tourney? buy a matrix


This gun just seems like one more spyder


I LOVE PBNATION THOUGH

Sheesh, almost everyone here seems to work off of what it looks like, don't bash it until you try it. I'm glad at least one person on here actually owns one.

Meh people like shooting their moths off

about things they dont know jack sh*t about.

"i know a person who saw someone across the field that was standing next to a guy that was shooting one and i think it sucks"

just like any other marker that is very un common. (take the ATS series of paintball markers. people always badmouth it, but they know squat about them)

So your instantly assuming that all rec ballers would want a Tippy? And if you are a tourny type player, then of course your gonna need a Matrix. I am a rec baller, and I use a Piranha.
This means I am breaking the unspeakable law of Juvenil. So what if I dont use a Tippmann, it is merely a different gun.

When I want a new gun I don't think "Oh, most ppl are using a Tippmann so Im gonna mindlessly buy a Tippy."

WRONG
I take into consideration the cost, the looks, the features, the company, and my style of play as well as how easily I can get one of these guns.


What kind of car do you own? IS it a XXXXX truck because every one who does YYYYY activity needs the XXXXX truck? No!

Your proposal is rediculous, and you need to realize that paintball is not a one-sided gam or sport or whatever you think of it as.

And I am not saying that there is anything wrong with a tippmann or a Matrix, they are just guns that I don't particularly want irght now.
Of course I'm sure you knew that already

where did you get that bs argument?? a spyder is a stacked blowback

Spyder AMG Classic
or
Spyder Extra

Now this is the Epic, Im not exactly sure how you would define this.
ICE Epic

So obviously it is not like "one more spyder"

Ok......if you take into consideration those different aspects, lets see. The epic is ugly, they're hard to work on, and no one stocks them. my point is, how could this be the right choice?

Whatever, just think this is a joke.

Also, I did know that. However, if a bunch of people have a gun....chances are they're decent and have made a name for themselves. Also, a car is a lot bigger investment then a couple hundred bucks for a rec gun.

Lighten up

you have never seen this gun in person or know anyone that owns one..

UGLY.. ok thats your OPINION

Hard to work on..this is where you have NO CLUE

No one stocks them..this is ODD because i found them at www.icepaintball.com and they had them in STOCK

I own an Epic and it has been up and running from day one. I cant say the same for the Timmy i own or my lvl 10 mag.
in fact i loan out my Epic to people whos guns GO DOWN.

I would like to invite you to the next .. try it, like it, buy it
event at S.C. village so you may experiance the fun of shooting a LIGHT, ACCURATE, and RELIABLE marker.

So you are saying that because lot's of people have BE Blades, BE Stingrays, and POS Spyders, these are good guns? With the state of today's cunsumer society, it seems like the reverse is almost true, poeple tend to buy cheap crap (thusly the success of McDonalds), and there's a good possibility that if they don't buy a whole lot of something, it's because it is more expensive, higher quality, and not as widely advertised.

However, all of this is really moot, because until we have actually played a few games with the gun, we don't know jack about its quality! Just because the company is realtively new and not very popular just means that they haven't had the time and exposure yet to really get going.
