pretty much all of the good masks come with visors, though.

Would you still recommend a ICD Freestyle? I was curious if it would be hard to find parts for them.

I'm going to say yes and no, but mostly no.

The freestyle involves more work and technical interest/workmanship, if that makes sense. While I would hope, at the least, that a majority of people could easily learn how to be one with the marker, a massive portion do not or aren't up to it. I kind of stick it with Angels and, say, vikings/excaliburs. They provide more for what they are, but there's more of yourself you need to invest into it to get it right.

Still worth it if you're down for sure.

They're fun to upgrade as well since upgrades will make much more noticeable differences.



You also have to submit to understanding that you'll never have a very air efficient gun. Can it be consistent and smooth? oh yeah. Shoot great? mmmhm. Efficient? mmm, i think I would suggest to avoid using it for a back position at a tournament or a lengthy scenario game.

I really appreciate the advice! I've always been a huge fan of Freestyles and while I was hoping you might give me a mostly yes response I figured it would be a mostly no instead.

If I currently had more time and money to invest in paintball I would totally buy a Freestyle just because I do love to tinker, but I just really need something cheap, efficient and relatively competitive.

Anyways, thanks for this awesome thread. This is a wealth of knowledge.

Hey, by all means, if you're down to actually service your guns like you're supposed to, the freestyle will be a walk in the park.

I just feel that more often than not, beginner players (even people who have been around a while) just don't take care of their **** like they're supposed to unless it's super straightforward or easy, whatever.

The FS just involves more than one hand is all.

I'd say it's a perfect secondary due to the tinkerability, but you should probably have something else as a main.

If you don't **** around, just buy a beat up Axe that shoots perfectly and throw the Lurker poppet and bolt assembly in there, set it up (ask for help if you need it) and tune it right, write down what was necessary to get it shooting that way (for when you remove stuff for maintenance) so you can really quickly get it back in order, and you can make that your fire and forget workhorse of the ages while you can pour your resources into the Freestyle and make it your special lil' fun gun.



Thanks!

Btw, if you ever come across any manuals of any kind for anything that isn't a cheesy blowback or spyder, feel free to shoot it my way

making a database.
