Come on guys calm down, basically your arguing opinions anyways, one person is saying the guys is cheap and intro players use it. well duh it's cheap it only cost 250, and duh intro players use it, do you go out and buy the top of the line baseball bat and glove because you want to try and play baseball? The other person is saying that the eXTCy will compete with high end guns...well so will a spyder or trracer in the right hands so that is a moot argument it all comes down to your taste and how deep your wallet, the eXTCy, G1, an d eNVy and pretty much the only new tech Spoolies I know of besides the Luxe (been outta paintball for awhile) so someone that wants a brand new spooly but can't afford a luxe will buy a GOG

Yup

Low end, who said it was low end ? I guess you have to keep telling yourself that to justify the purchase.

See above.

So can an A-5/M98/STBB in the hands of the right person. Big Deal. You dont even own one, yet you defend it like it you own stock in GoG. Yes, your a noob.

No, but we aren't taking about Baseball. I always tell my customers to buy good equipment (not saying GoG products aren't) vs Tippmanns/Spyders due to them having to re-sell them if the kids grow out of it. Never scrimp on Eye protection, or buy used and upgrade slowly. The Envy/Extcy/G-1 are great starter guns, better then what most people start with, but face it, the Envy/G-1 is marketed towards noobs or new players on a budget, the Extcy is a step up from the previous. It's a starter gun and always will be.

Yet you still do

The whole gun doesn't make the player is bull****. If that were the case you wouldn't be selling your A-5 to buy say, your Envy. A new gun, especially one that's electro has a psychological effect on people. I have seen people, with my own eyes, change to a more aggressive player when they go from a mech triggered gun to an electro. If the gun doesn't make the player, then why do Pro Teams use 1000.00 guns vs a 125.00 Tippmann ? There will always be two sides to a debate. I agree that the gun doesn't make the player but in a new players eyes it does.

Just this weekend I heard a comment " Damn, these guys are serious about this" when they seen/heard an electro vs the mech A-5 they held in their hands. To a new player this is intimidating. Thats why we experienced players usually trade guns with newer players to let them have experience paintball on a newer level to them. Most people wouldn't do that, unless they are trying to sell their equipment. I let private parties, usually the scared little girl or birthday boy use my back-up SP-1 to try for a game or two.

Honestly, most people in paintball know that the Extcy is a re-vamped Ion. Most of us would say, why drop 200-250.00 on a new Ion when I can pick-up a used Ion that has been upgraded for half that. Someone coming into the sport doesn't know this or someone who has played a year or two with a beginners gun (Tippmann/Spyder/etc) probably won't either. Now, I am not saying everyone is like this, but most of the younger guys at my field are always asking us, the employees for advice on stepping up from their Call of Duty looking Tippmanns or their Craigslist Spyders. When I say noob, it's a reference to newer players, not the derogatory term used in gaming.

So Danny, how long you been playing paintball ?
What is your home field ?
How often do you ref ?
How many scenarios you ever played ?
How many tournaments ?
How many guns other then the 3 you mentioned, have you owned ?

Another factoid you may not know is, unless you sell a gun to total new player, you'll never get what you put into it, out of it. Take the gun and all the upgrades, add them together, and divide them by half and thats about how much it's actually worth. Most people think their one of one custom anno makes their gun rare. It doesn't, it's just marketing hype for them to make you think it's worth more then it actually is.

I know you want to believe this new gun is worth more then 150.00, but unless you get some one new to buy it, to everyone else, it's just an Ion.

i have been playing paintball for about 6 years.
my home field is cousins paintball in staten island, ny
I have never reffed a game in my life
I have never played a scenario game
I have never played in any tournaments
I currently own a spyder pilot acs, gog envy, and a pm5. however my first gun was a tippmann 98c followed by an a5. I currently use my envy.

I only play recball so yea i have never played in any tourny's. I would like to play scenario but my home field doesnt have any scenario games. I play paintball for the fun of the game and i have never had any interest in doing a tourny.

3.) i reffed for 2 1/2 years (half of 2004, 2005, 2006)
4.) i played in Oklahoma DDay in 2006 & 2007
5.) i've played in three tourneys my team took 3rd our first time, 2nd our second time (won every game but the very last one in the finales), and won our last time... i can post pics of trophies and medals if needed to prove its not shens
6.) I've own a 98C, A-5, pirahna G2, pirahna srt (i think), autococker trilly pro, autococker pro stock, oddessey O3M (turned it into a pump), PMI trracer pump, Ion, Invert Mini, SFT Shocker, System X NME, SFT Shocker...

I would say No based on the experiences you had in the short time you played. There's a huge difference in your Q&A vs Danny96211's.

Who knew me trading my extcy for his Nme would cause such a fuss?

american, keep the extcy, it's new, has warranty, will not let you down and is easy to maintain. Great for someone getting back into the sport. you will not find a better deal for 150-200 dollars most of the time.

i traded it locally for a Nexus 7 tablet which in turn i have traded for a n2 tank and cash, lol, i already owned a shocker but no tank, hopper or mask...and not alot of cash, but i pretty much got deals for everything now, got a tank on the way, a mask on the way as soon as my package gets to him, and working on getting a hopper soon hopefully...but it was a really nice gun

honestly i have a little sellers remorse but it would have taken forever to get a tank/hopper/mask otherwise and as soon as i hit the field playing again that'll be gone, looking into getting another one as a back up, of course a long way down the road...

looking at the retail cost of the eXtcy your asking price seems reasonable

I'll go ahead and ignore all the bickering and do my best to answer the question. I would try to sell it for $200 lowest. If no one bites for that price on the nation, go craigs list or ebay or just try to sell it at your local field.

If I didn't need the money, I would totally keep my eXTCy. Now that it's broken in, it shoots VERY smoothly. Though it feels like a brick now that I have a Geo. With all the ups I have in mine, I was trying to get $225. Now I'm thinking that was optimistic...
