I have to agree with some of them but other have issues if you ask me.

1. DYE ( Any Dye product they shot like butter)
2. Planet Eclipse ( These guns are built great and hardly ever break)
3. Macdev ( They shot great but they are not as durable as the two above)
4. Boblong ( Shot fast and Super light but not accuarte at all)
5. Luxe ( Love the gun maybe it should be higher up like 3 but to long of a gun)
6. SFT ( i dont know why anyone would say NXT those things were super heavy)
7. Empire ( just a great gun to start off and even compete with)
8. WDP ( Amazing guns until they started building them in China)
9. AKA ( they were nice but you had a brick in your hands)
10. Spyder/Tippman ( they have never been able to making anything high end not even Bad Company could make them work. Instead Tippman Effect had better results then Bad Company)
11. Machine Vapor ( i wish people would stop trying to steal Smart Parts design and come up with their own. Its an over priced wanabee Shocker that uses a DM Noid and breaks down all the time. If you are looking for a Vapor just buy a Blender its about the same thing.)

1) Clone GT: IMO the BEST all around gun there is right now. Its sheer performance makes it nessesary to have on this list.

2) 98C: Possibly the most important paintball gun out there. Few paintballers have not used this gun as their primary gun at one point or another, whether it be by renting, or by owning.

3) Angels: You can thank these for tournament paintball. Angel was one of, if not the biggest push to move from chaotic woods play to organized field play.

4) Intimidators and...
5) Shockers: Some of the most well know tournament paintball guns. When tournament paintball was in its prime, these guns were the guns to have.

6) Ions: Prior to Ions, you had to choose between high and and low end guns. There was no gun that could perform on a high end level with low end prices. The Ion came out and said, instead of getting a 98C or Spyder, for a little more you can get a gun that performs similar to a high end gun. Now we have the Mini, Axe, DP G3/4 & FX, Proto, Etek & Etha, and more.

7) Spyders: Similar to 98C, an "upgrade" for many, allowing many to advance their paintballing career. No, they are not the best, but before the Ion, these were your choice in cheap, upgrade-able guns. Again, very few paintballs have not used a spyder as their primary gun.

8) Autocockers and...
9) Automags: Similar to Timmies and Shockers, these were the iconic markers of a time now gone. Both received electronic upgrades to keep them relevant. Why automags may now only be wall decorations, many autocockers are still in use as pumps.

10) Egos: If even just an honorable mention, Egos need to be on this list.

Thanks Racso!! Very good list with explanations on each. I have owned each one, except for the Angel, sometimes several at the same time. I have, though, in the last few months, acquired a Luxe. There is something really special about a Luxe and I feel that it needs to be in your list somewhere. It's performance is argued against the GT in all threads (also GEO3, Vapors and Deamons). It has taken the paintball world 5 years to catch up to the smoothness of shot of the original 2008 Luxes) However the 1 thing that separates the Luxe from the high end pack is its resale value. There are 2008 Luxes still selling for more than many 2011-12 high end markers (Dye, PE, MacDev, Machine). It, right now, is the only marker that, if purchased used, may actually increase in value...nice!

Cant decide between luxe 2.0 and clone gt for 1st and 2nd. Absolutely love the clone engine and the general design is superior, but the luxe ergonomics and sexiness factor is hard for me to pass up. Hate the talking board though.
