OH GOD could you ever be wrong about neck guards, even though I still don't have one, I should get one. I have two scars on my neck from 2 paintballs this little bastard shot me when i was like 5 feet away, I couldn't breathe for about 15 seconds, then when I get back I see the welts are all bloody. But back on target: I will say that dye barrels and smart parts barrels are for the most part over priced, and especially dye barrels are overrated. They are great barrels, hell, I own one now and used to have 2 boomsticks. But hot damn, $100 for a tube... but if you want the best (and I do ) , you will end up paying a ton of cash for barrels.

some smart parts stuff is a little pricy. but their smart parts stickies are only 19, and dyes are like 26. the freak is great value, so are the teardrop and progressive. the imp is good value, the shocker is a total blow job. way over priced on the shocker. the AA seems ok. its the same as a dye. but dye could cut down a little on their ****e.

Dammit, this is over-rated NOT over-priced. If we were talking about over-priced we could list just about any paintball product.

All you muppets out there hate Angels because you don't have them, pretty funny. i love tictacs, your arguments are still wrong, and freaks aren't the best, sorry. Adding a Werm frame won't take away the kick, or the first shot drop, or the ****ty POTs, or the bad customer service. Get off your high horse, you're just pissed that you bought a gun that was supposed to be godly because of some **** you read on the net and you know it doesn't. You people need to play the game more.

Impulses are overrated, especially the Rats, they're hyped to hell and back. Intimadators are over rated, heck, every gun over 100 is over rated.

Freaks are the most over rated though, dear god are they overrated.

SP sticky grips suck if you didn't know, DYEs are much better. And DYE barrels are better then SP barrels.

Damn straight, if you can't win with a good Bushmaster you just can't win.

Angels only suck when you cant afford one. They are not over priced, you just dont think a mere toy could cost that much.

Honestly, when LCDs were 1,300, thats over priced. If they were still that, and the competition (Namely Intimadators) were the same price, I doubt they'd sell any. 900 is a good price for an LCD.

Ok I'm gonna do it

I'm actually gonna say some stuff that is over-rated. Angel Air, Warp feeds, scopes, rifled barrels. Angel air is way expensive for the quality and isn't that nice. Warp feeds are heavy, make your gun unbalanced. Scopes are useless in games. Rifled barrels do nothing but rip up paint and screw the accuracy of your balls.
Peace-Jon

richy...will you please just shut the **** up. you really dont know what your talkin about. SP and Dye stickies are the same. i have dyes. i have SPs. i would know. THEY ARE THE SMAE EXACT THING FOR GOD SAKES AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

and smart parts and dye are two totally different companies. their products are aimed at differnt people. people like richy should be shot in the hand and never be allowed to type again. its realy easy to hide behind a computer screen on a forum. and IMO, your just a little kid who is ignorant. you get a new gun every god damn week. its rediculous. as soon as you find something wrong with a gun you sell it and move on.

-sigh-

Obviously you don't have both, because they are far from the same thing. I'm not the one who flames every gun that isn't an Impulse because I don't own it. You'd know about it being easy to hide behind a computer and flame guns, because you do it every freaking day.

I've owned 5 guns over the course of 2 years, that's not much compared to some pal, so cram it.
