It's the first marker to get burned for having a hump while the hump is good enough for this company to make it an aftermarket upgrade.

the diadem's hump is significanlty different than that one.
I don't understand why people bother to get worked up over things like this...any explanations out there?

No it wasn't. The Emag got burned for having a hump on the frame before Action Markers even existed. Try again slugger.

The hump wasn't the Emag's main selling point.

a paintball gun shouldn't need some weird grip frame to be able to sell...the performance of the gun should come before that

So what are you saying? The Diadem sucks so much it needed to sell the hump? Mine's pretty decent.

i didn't say that at all...
I have absolutely nothing against diadems, and I wouldn't mind rockin one once in awhile. People just put too much stock in the hump and not enough in the performance of the marker.

The point is, no one stole the hump from the Diadem. The Diadem stole the hump from either the Emag or the clamshell Timmy frame. Both were out way before the Diadem.

Ok, this is pretty lame. Did i ever say that the hump waqs spawned from the Diadem? No, did I post this in the AM forum because i own a diadem? Yes. I could care less about what goes on in the mag section, as are my feelings about mags as well. This is why paintball is gay at times, it has to turn into a pissing contest. I wouldn't consider a clammy to have a bubble, as AM people call them. That's more of a case of 'oh sh&^, where do we put the battery.' god i'm glad this isn't my favorite sport.

You posted a thread, entitled "DIADEM VIOLATION" in the Action Markers section, linking to a marker with a hump, claiming "no words needed."

Oh but you're not implying it was spawned from the Diadem indeed. Good backpeddling.

-you miss quoted his title... it had a ? at the end... therefore making it a question rather then a statement. - but adding "no words needed" makes the reason for the post rather obscure. **(pssst. add some actual content to your posts people... they might make more sense.)

imo just delete the thread... it's been pretty worthless from the start.

He was obviously trying to say that anything with hump violates the design of a Diadem and when we showed that he was being an ignorant bumblehead, he tried to backpedal. He did actually think that the Diadem using a hump frame was like original or something. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with copying, but he was just being stupid.
