I'm trying to decide between a Spyder Trracer, a Spyder Hammer 7, and an Empire MR5. New to paintball. Only other gun I have used is an A5. THANKS.

I assume you mean Empire Trracer and Spyder MR5?

Two of those guns you listed are pumps, the MR5 isn't.

So if you want the semi, go for the MR5. If you like pump, the Hammer has some cool stuff, like the ability to fire first strike rounds.

If you like stacked tube poppets, then they are fantastic. I have an EGO 11 and I love it. Great efficiency, nice shot quality, great trigger, just an overall good marker.

Out of your choices listed, I would say A-5 as it offers a lot of opportunity for upgrades, reliable as hell, and easier to maintain(at least compared to the 98). If you go that route, I would suggest looking into a barrel upgrade as the stock one pretty much sucks.

Make sur eto take a look on the BST, you can usually find really good deals on used Tippmans's.

What kind of budget are you working with, that's going to determine your "best".

If your looking to go new, I would look into the GOG lineup. They make some quality markers at a very affordable price and allow you to be competitive in both woods ball and speed ball type play.

I am a fairly new player, and now gathering my gear online. Thankfully, I have a more experienced friend who is helping me. I was considering getting a new marker, but I think I will start with a second hand while I get the hang of things, and learn more.

Im gona say etha its going to be the most relabel marker out of all of them followed by the best customer service. also you can get eh emc kit i think its called and make it look more milsim like. Rap4 doesn't have the best rap and overall quality isn't great.

If your looking at tippmann id say a5 for the upgraded feed system, the enmey is kinda a newer ion but im aware they have had issues, while it will be quitter and smother than the rest be ready just incase you pic that one.

thats all about popits or spools what do you like better. I think the geo is over rated but with the new IV core out you should be able to get about 1600 shoots off a full fill so if thats something you like you may want to consider that.
