yea its cause people are butthurt about SP being sneaky buisness people so they whine and bash SP because they are able to produce a marker that is of comprable quality for a price point that shatters what the competition can sell it for

Cause SP is taking over the market and there's nothing wrong with that.

It is because of mis-information... This thread can get real ugly and I see it coming.

Intense debate!

Don't hold your breath Sean, NO ONE would argue about that in the SP forum itself..
Except maybe MVP or someone.

All I can say about SP is that every product of theirs I have always works, always works well, and for the money always seems to be an excellent value. I've been playing paintball for 20 years and SP products over the past 4 years has never let down.

I do plan on picking up a Shocker or Eos (or both) in the off-season I like the SP markers so much. I currently have an Ion (Firebolt, blackheart, 360 QEV, SS freak) that is my go-to backup marker and often times my main marker (sometimes my cockers love me, sometimes they hate me).

I've always felt that the only people that hate on SPs are those that don't have enough information or people who don't maintain their markers properly to begin with.

Based on that, think of it this way. If everyone had the same type of gun, were is the innovation in that? Not too mention, wouldn't you want a choice? Patents force people to come up with new ways to do things. Also, it does not take much to get around a patent. Look at the golf industry. I just did a search on the patent office website. There are hundreds from golf balls, to golf club shaft, to the actual head itself. How many different ways can a shaft on a golf club be done? Apparently hundreds. Patents protect people who make an investment in an idea they came up with. And if it is something that alters the entire industry, then it forces more innovation. Which in the end is better for the consumer.

I have to... can't help it. Have to make it good for the trolls that will be here over the weekend. I feel that I am right on what I posted.

Here is the big picture. SP makes bull**** decisions on these things. Some of their patents are 100% theirs. Some are not even close. I am not going to debate this, simply because it is true beyond any and all arguements. SP also makes quality markers (Except for the lovely SFT anno's. ) for good prices and deserves to be respected based on that. In the end SP does good business and makes good markers, but is a little meh in the legal action department.

I am what you call a gun whore.
I have had almost every gun on the market from spyders to timmys to emags to shockers to borgs, egos and everything in between.
SmartParts may have a bad rep for law suits but when it comes down to it,
SmartParts has innovation and production of great markers under their belt and people get cold over it.
My recommendation is to try everything and shoot what you like. Its all preference.

You're completely off base and should learn how patents work. If SP is able to patent something then it's 100% theres and no other company can prove they invented it first. On top of that if it's something already on the market without any patent filed, then no patent can be put on that object.

Patents give inventors/companies rights but as such there are certain rights they have to meet to get those patents.

I've got plenty of patents under my belt (in a totally different and unrelated buisness to paintball) as well as my name on even more not as the inventor and I can tell you that for SP to have any patent they have had to invented/filed the patent first. If 2 seperate companies file for similar patents then the one that has the documentation wins that patent (or the patent office can determine it's not a patentable idea).

So the only thing that is true beyond any and all arguements is your total failure at understanding patents or the patent process.

I edited this because I'm simply not wasting either of our time by disproving your little arguement point by point. Also, I will NOT turn any of these threads into a giant flame thread. No thanks.
