Sure, I agree that the first line of 2000's had their issues as we where there with you and a lot has changed now. It's hard to argue with the data we collected during our study and tests and believe me, I've been at this since 1988. I can see where the “sales pitch” ideals might seem to have appeared but I’m a firm believer in making your own choices based on the best information. Same way I treat my customers buy giving them the info and letting them decide.

At I-70 Paintball while they were fixing my Ion, they let me use the Smart Part Nerve that was hanging on their wall. They usually rent 98 Customs with upgrades like Revys, sniper package(stock, flatline barrel, sight) for like 15-20 more.

I use to work for a few fields.

Drop Zone Extreme Sports - We used stingrays, sl-68's, tippmann pro-am, trracer pumps, tipmann prolites, carbines, and pirahnas.

Kapp Xtreme Sports Park - We used Tippman Pro-Carbines and Pirahna's.

I started paintball by working on guns at drop zone many years ago. I have worked on more guns than i wish to count over the years. The best rental I think that is out there is the new Smart Parts Ion. Yes, I work for Smart Parts, but I am posting cause it is true.

The ion comes with a brown body and laser engraving on the side to help keep theft to a minimum. The brown body is not available to anyone except to field rentals. They can work on compressed air or CO2 (anti-siphon required). They are also electronic. Your customers shoot more paint. More paint = more money. There is also less ball breakage. I have never broken a ball while playing with my ion. I has seen well over 30 cases of paint through it. And they are very accurate out of the box. They are easy to work on. Maintenace is very easy. You just wipe them off. Grease the bolt every now and then.

If you have any any questions, feel free to conact me. Quantity discounts are available.

Splat Attack Woodsball and Sup'Air fields both rent out Pirahanas, our Indoor rents out A-5's. There is one A-5 that has been upgraded a bit, but I have no idea exactly what has been done to it.
