Remote lines and speedball

Why are remote lines not used in speedball?

Additionally, having your tank connected to the gun directly allows more stability when snapping and shooting in general.

He pretty much said it. When your aiming down your barrel, having that tank in your shoulder helps tremendously. Try both ways - you'll see.

The argument I heard was that a remote is not comfortable when you're switching your marker from right-handed to left-handed hold.

As for using air tank like a stock - never worked for me; too low, too wide, too uncomfortable.

You can use rails, drop forwards, ASA extenders, and also just using smaller/bigger tanks to get the right fit. I have a remote line but figured out a long time ago that it is pretty much useless.

It's also a lot harder to move your gun around if you have a remote on her. That line just gets in the way when you're crossing hands, trying to move quickly, and fire from awkward positions. I use a drop-forward, just gives me an infinitely tighter profile (subject to my opinion, not yours) and even in woodsball I don't like running a remote.

maybe try a padded jersey or better tank cover? there's a reason everyone does it (not always the best arguement), it really does work better to keep everything stable.

It's like shooting a rifle vs. shooting a submachine gun. there's a huge difference in what you can aim at.

depends you can aim a submachine gun at 3 seperate targets 40 feet away much faster than a rifle. which one reminds you of paintball?

But neither has a line running to behind your back so that point is moot. When you switch hands with a remote line, you're going to get caught up with the line coming across your chest if its long enough to reach. The only way to not have that happen is to put the gun behind your back when switching hands. Having the tank attached to the gun lets you switch hands faster, enabling you to come out both sides of your bunker quicker, while keeping a smaller profile.

remote lines are not conducive to fast moving, fast paced games. It's wkward in controlling your marker, its cumbersome when switching hands, its heavy in your pack, and not what you want on your body when sliding into bunkers.... good way to get a serious back injury.
Furthermore, remote lines are generally used to offset the weight of Milsim markers, and allows the player to carry a larger air tank. Speedball markers are much lighter, and you dont need 88ci of air for a speedball match. You gas up before and after each match
Could you use one? Sure... but i wouldnt reccomend it, and I'm guessing no speedball player is going to either...
