To start off with, this year I hope to be slowly getting back into the sport and buying up a ton of gear(or what I can afford) and I have a few angel questions. I played PB for 7 years and 5 of those years I owned quite a few Angels but being out of the game for close to 4 years now I don't really know what is what when it comes to the new guns.
The last model I owned before I got out was a 05 Speed, now I see the G7s and A1s and dont know much about them at all, I havent even held a marker in 4 years and I know technology has changed a lot when it comes to paintball and what not. So my first question is, whats the best gun for the buck if I'm buying it used? I really would like to find a package deal between $400-$500 used with a tank and hopper. My second question is, how outdated would an 05 speed be compared to a G7? I'm not too worried about having the best of the best and the newest thing out there due to my financial situation but I do want something fast, efficent, and just overall a good clean shooting gun.
Sorry if I sound like a newb but I pretty much am all over again for the most part lol so hopefully some of you guys will take pitty on me and help a brotha out. Thanks! -Eddie
If you went back to an 05 Speed I don't think you'd be horribly outdated. As long as you can set it to 10-12 bps semi you should be good. I would suggest heading over to the angelowners.com and looking in the BST section over there. You'll have to sort through a lot more BS on here were as they have a sub-forum set up for each model of Angel in the BST.
I just got back in after a long hiatus as well, and I always used to shoot Angels. I bounced between a few guns, I've settled on an A1. I still can't believe that these guns can be had so cheap and more people aren't shooting them. Amazing guns can be found for $300 and sometimes less, and it's the most comfortable gun I've ever held and shoots great. I can't wait to get it tuned up and magno'd. A quick trip through the BST or over on AOG should get you exactly what you need.
