Hey All - Ft Wayne Local

Not new here just couldnt remember my account from a years ago! Local to Fort Wayne and looking to get back into the sport. Had a few questions. Firstly we'll start with local stores to go through. Is PB Sports still the go to place around here, or are there other local business that I should consider as well?

Depending on how long you have been away, do you know of the Paintball Plex? The Paintball Plex is located just outside of Fort Wayne. They have an indoor field with astro turf, a full size Xball field, a pallet field, and a World War II field with sand bag bunkers. The Plex also has a full service pro shop that is home to Trade My Gun. Trade My Gun is their retail business that sells equipment along with new and used guns. Check out their field website: WWW.paintballplex.com and since you live in FW, you really need to head over and check out their field and store. The store website is separate at: WWW.trademygun.com

PB Sports is also still around and located just down the road from the Glenbrook Mall.

Havent been around since like '08. Thats a good bit of info too, thanks. I guess Ill have to check out the Plex! Mainly just looking to scoop up some decent gear that I was looking at in the past and get back in the groove. Guess Ill look around for a good deal on a SP Nerve or SFT.


Next question - Reball still a thing?

Reball is still used in some areas but it will never be the same as regular paintball. It is mainly used in small, indoor facilities/areas that were not designed for paintball. I would suggest taking a look at Trade My Gun's website and browse around their used gun section. I am not trying to tell you what gun to buy as it sounds like you want a certain marker for nostalgia's sake but trust me when I say, most of the markers produced in the last couple years have come along way from the old Smart Parts guns. Just a suggestion.

Yeah, been lurking around other parts of the forum today. I did head over to the trade my gun site and that seems pretty legit. Nostalgia is up there, thats for sure. It seems Ill have to scratch the Nerve as parts arent available. Wouldnt mind an older GEO as I miss my GR2.

I shoot the new CS1 (Eclipse's newest Geo) but I think you would be very happy with any of the last couple of models. They are a spool valve gun, very similar to the SP guns you listed so you would, most likely, get a marker with the similar shot/feel you are looking for. The Paintball Plex has a TON of teams calling the field home for their practice. If you are looking to get serious just ask around and you will be able to find a team that fits your time and budget. The Plex also hosts clinics that are hosted by their pro team, the Outlaws, so if you are looking to jump back in and skill up pretty quick, you should consider a couple of the clinics.

Did you call them directly? or are you just trying to use their online trading tool? If you are not getting a response back from them using the online tool, then i would suggest calling them directly. It is the quickest and easiest way to get service. Keep in mind, depending on what you have to trade, they may not take what you are offering. They still have to be confident that the marker you are trading has a secondary market. They are very good about finding a deal for everyone but there are a few instances where they may not want the marker you are trading in.

Yeah, Ill just end up picking up some sort of GEO and throw a CORE IV in and call it a day. Seems like the rules and such have changed up a bit too.

Welcome back! I quit back in 08 as well and have spent the last 6 months rebuilding my gear. The biggest curve ball to me was the 10 or 12.5 bps cap crap. Other than that Paintball plex is the best around. I miss PB heat did you ever play there?
