When you and someone at the field simply share a nod, say "nice mag" to one another and smile

Great thread by the way! Look forward to reading more!

may of been said but... if you had the "smart cord" running from your angel to your revvy. Or if you owned a VM68 with the air line running to the back to a 10oz. tank and a 3.5oz where the original was.

When you go to play at a field and most, if not all, the refs are younger than you and think the semi-auto rebel you pull out is ancient.

I CAN remember the original 98c's. I also remember how many parts we went through altering it to be full auto in the days when that was impossible and revo's were still new and expensive.

I remember when Monsterballs were new. I remember using not UVEX goggles, but a hardhat and full face shield to play in the woods.

Intellifeed.

There's old school and then there's OLD school. Paintball is about 30 years old now. It's like rap: some people think Sugarhill Gang is old school, and others Ice Cube. I fall into the latter category with paintball. I didn't have a VM68 or a Nelspot, but I remember when Scott made good masks and electronic guns made their debut.

If you can tell me what a powerfeed and air assist are...I think that's old school. If you can remember watching the first paintball world cup on ESPN back in the nineties...that's pretty old school.

If you can say you paid over $1000 for a cocker now worth about 150...you're a fool and old school.

If you ever got a bingo ball to your open mouth because you were just wearing shop goggles and had to wash it out with paint thinner...you are OLD OLD OLD school.

you remember life before X-ball and where and when it debued. when the IAO was the place to play for teams and if you won they put you into the greg hastings game. when the original halo came out and the "issue" it had with dark paint. when revvys where the main option. the impulse was the gun to have. the old shoebox shockers. i could go on and on. even so much has changed in the 9 years ive been playing/spectating.

When you have this purple 10 year badge thingy.

I kid I kid.

You know your old school when.....

- You have stuff all the agg kids think is trendy and still use it because thats your normal gear.

- You get more excited about buying a dusty/crusty/rusty autococker then any new gear.

- You own atleast one form of J and J barrel that isnt aluminum or ceramic

If you're on a team that's older than you are. Oh, wait...

Also, I didn't realize that owning an expansion chamber, or even knowing what one is, made you old. That was one of the first upgrades I put on my old Spyder. For me, though, going into the new player forum and seeing people that pick up ions, G4s, and in one case a 2010 ego as their first marker kind of blows my mind, considering everyone in the group I play with started with a mech Spyder, and Tippmann A5s were what the richest, most experienced players among us had.

What they are is easy.
But can you tell why a powerfeed was considered an upgrade when today it's almost irrelevant?

Something to do with the venting air forcing the ball back into the feed plug and making it feed quicker.

Never mind power feeds.... what about Euro Style feeds
