Been gone, what's new?

Well been out quite a while. Wondering what the top gear is now. Marker, loader, tank. When I left it was ego9 and dm9 and with ninja and guerilla tank and the dye loader, done forgot the name.
Still got my dm6 and ninja, and go back a bit more I still have my mini-mag on co2. Lol

Welcome back, Most of the stuff is still the same. BLAST ended up getting acquired but to whom I am not sure. The dye loader is probably the Rotor?

You have a new player in the big market GI Sportz who might be on everyone's crap list right now because of some lawsuits going on about paint. GI Sportz also bought Empire, the people who make the mini/axe/prophecy(Z2.)

You still have Virtue except they really stepped away from the board game and now make some spectacular products(Hoppers(Spire/260/Spire 3) and a new mask the Vio!)

I am not sure when Smart parts threw in the towel but that was probably right around the time you left.

You also have DLX who makes the luxe, I can't say much on them.

Here are probably the better high end markers of the top of my head by company
Planet Eclipse:
1.CS1(Spool)
2.LV1/1.1/LVR(Poppet)
3.Gtek 160r(spool)
4.Etek 5(Poppet)

Dye:
1.M2(Spool)

GI Sports:
1.Victus(Spool? see Bob Long insight)

Empire:
1:Vanquish GT(2.0, 1.5, 1)
2.Axe
3.Mini

DLX:
1.Luxe Ice

SP:
Shocker RSX

Bob Long:
I really know nothing about BL.

Thanks, yes I have a rotor. I like my dm 6, but was about to pick up a ego before I got out. I thought about getting something else on the used side if I get back into it.

I am getting back into it for the first time in several years too. I haven't played a tournament since 2012 but I am thinking about trying to this year. I still have a dm6 also but I have to find it. It's been in a storage box since I quit. I am going to rebuild it when I find it, replace all the seals and o-rings before I even try and air it up. I always kept very well maintained and it repayed me by always shooting flawlessly and never let me down. That's why I was still using it in 2012 lol. I'm probably going to need a new tank bc I doubt my old one would even pass a hydro. It was 5 years old when I quit and it was looking pretty rough. I don't remember if I sold my rotor or still have it. I have been away for so long that I couldn't even remember my pbnation name so I made a new account yesterday lol.
