I would use my Alias, or my Amazing Lime Green Karta Mag.

What's wrong with A1s? they are nice markers. People just say they suck beceause they didn't know how to take care of their guns or read the manual which led them for their angel ones to break down or perform so ****ty.

Not user friendly? The scroll wheel on the back is by far the best ui design in paintball so far, only people that either A) cant read English so they don't know what the menu says or B) people that are blind have an excuse for not being able to READ an OLED and pick from the menu. The fact that so many people blindly bash A1's just goes to show you how excellent the gun is that Ego owners would be jealous of it lol. My A1 last season had over 120K cycles and it was still mowing reliably and with the least possible maintenance.

My new EGO is great but the A1 is still an awesome backup and loaner.

My first choice would be an A1 or a Dm7 and up.

My A1, and many teammates A1s worked perfect. Screwed in a LP tank, set the LPR just right, kept it cleaned and lubed and it worked like a charm every time. Plus if you were to get sponsored by them...which isn't all that hard to get done, they offer virtually free upgrades and EXCELLENT customer service. Do our egos have usb ports to download new software? uh...no... thats pretty *****in by my standards and should really be used by every gun manufacture. Yes the A1s had some problems, like the eye covers or retards using HP tanks on them but nothing a call to them can't fix, or hummm a warranty? The new 3 piece eye covers work like a charm and haven't broken on my friends gat yet and he is a "tinker" kinda of guy and trust me that guy takes it apart all the time.

Don't get me wrong guys I love my Ego7 but if I had to pick up any other marker, a A1 would be one of the first ones to come to mind... oh and one more thing... the fly is coming out and with internals that can be crammed into an A1 and with the A1s price tag of about $450 for a used one, really makes me wonder...

I felt that the A1 was poorlt thought out. I would much rather have a button than a wheel, it took more time to "boot up" and get firing than any of my other guns, the detents and eye covers are AWFUL, flat out. I hated the as mounting screws and rail. Mine was set up right, pressures and dwell and sucked down air, it worked right, but was never as good as my A4 Fly.

....after owning\shooting most every gun....I would still pick my Droid over all else (DM8, DM7, PM8....anything) (I also use the Droid over the Ego8 & DM7 I have)
