Not only do I see far more Ego 5's than Ion's (despite the fact that production of the Ego 5 stopped in 2005 and the production of the Ion continued until the company declared bankruptcy), but the Ego 5's I see are pretty much always in better shape than any Ion I've seen. The same thing could be said about the Shocker, Matrix, or pretty much any other high end marker.

That guy said he was firing 10bps in mechanical mode, that's a pretty decent firing rate for having a low/dead/no battery.

not expecting much from the crossover... that price range is pretty solid for a woodsball company to come in

I gotta say, I was pretty impressed with that "select fire" concept. My friend is tripping over just to get one in his hands haha.

The Crossover looked pretty good, for rental guns. The new one they are releasing will definetly help out people who work at the field for when people mess up the guns.

Happy to see the Tippmann crossover finally come out.
The 10bps all mechanical was pretty creative. Even though i very rarely play woodsball, i like the idea of if your battery dies it'll still shoot semi no problem.

Glad to hear that they're trying to get into the higher-end part of paintball. It's going to be hard to top all of the higher brands as they are now though. I'm sure the "crossover" will be a hit for younger players though. The new goggle line can never go wrong either.

As many people, I used Tippmann when I first got into paintball. I had the 98c and also a Spyder Victor. I am glad to see Tippy finally start to make some higher-end markers, though. The Crossover looks like a very good marker for someone breaking into the sport more seriously, but I can't see many people dropping that much coin when there are so many other options out there at the same price range or cheaper that offer the same or more as far as options go.

I hope it takes off and sells well and that they continue to produce and improve upon the design/idea, though. The mask looks rather "meh" to me, though.

I would, however, if it were cheap enough, like to get one of those rentals as a spare/backup/loaner, just to play with it. I can strip and put together an A-5 or 98c in 5 minutes, but the rental looks like a fantastic improvement to field owners. And, I kind of like the look of it, very uzi-like.

^^This. For $450 I'd much rather have an Axe.

i know here in canada the crossover is going for 500ish i can pick up an etha for 450 brand new so at this point i would take the etha.

that being said, i think the crossover is promising and if the price came down (or i can pick one up used for really cheap) id probably pick one up.

That's what I'm thinking will end up being the biggest market for the Crossover, once Tippman smartens up and cuts the price down (if ever).

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
