Everything is a fad. 5 years from now people will be asking why only noobs use bottom lines (and yes, that rail/asa dohicky is just a fancy bottom line). It goes in cycles. First no tanks (they hadn't been invented yet), then a tank mounted on the bottom of a stock (aka California style), then back bottle, then a bottom line, then remote with bottom line stock, then HPA cradle (early HPA tanks didn't screw in, the needed a fancy bracket to hold them), then cradle with drop, then ASA with drop, then ASA with really fricken big drop, and now we have a split, with some players using expensive bottom lines, and others using remotes with back mounted stocks.
I predict backbottle tanks are next. Tournament players get to really tuck in their wrist (completely behind the grip, no tank to get in the way), and woodballers get a rifle'ish setup.
