Heck no Tippmans don't suck. They are the best rental guns money can....get. Customers can beat up on them and they keep running. Just like the 20 dollar JT masks. Would I buy one? Not unless its the Crossover. I was introduced to paintball by a buddy who had a BT4ERC...a Tippman.
Out the box my friend had 350 in it. I went more practical and got a Azodin blitz; long story short I have more gun and more money left over then he does. The $$$ I saved just got me a used Rail. Needless to say my buddy is jealous of my markers, and I think his suck. That said your x7 looks bad as.
