I guess but when you play for a team and get good prices on the LT why not go with the LT. Plus its a tad lighter, not significant but everyone nowadays is saying how heavy or not a marker is compared to another one.

People complain too much lol. Tell them to play with an autococker or an old Spyder or tippman. Then they'll know heavy.

I've shot an LT and AM and they barely felt any different. Only thing was psychological and the fact I knew they were different. Great marker regardless.

^What he said^ Trying playing with one of these fully loaded, large HPA tank, and full gear all day (and yes I still use this gun as of today hence the Freak barrel and XSV on/off ASA).

I bet the Etek to them after that would feel like there isn't even a gun present.

Totally agree. My first gun was an A5. Lasted all of three weeks, sold it.

I myself am not saying wooo lighter is better. If a player is comfortable with a heavier gun then leave them be that's what they are comfortable with. Same goes for a lighter gun. I personally prefer a lighter gun it just feels better to me.

Haha were not saying you're complaining. Just pointing out to those who complain about a heavy gun haven't played long enough. Based on how much paintball has evolved, who wouldn't want the latest and greatest market that is light weight. Hell I want it too lol.
