Whoa, totally different beasts. Way to different to order into "worse" or "better".

The T9 does the best in following the function of an actual firearm (when used in magazine mode). Has the option of running either mags or hopper, and can switch mid game. Has the option of running First Strike rounds with the adaption kit (I'd wait until the release the FS ready version, which shouldn't be much longer since they released the FS ready T8.1). Not particularly gentle on paint, so if you're running a hopper you should run a good motorized hopper. Can be ran as a long rifle, short rifle, or pistol. Can run either remote or 12grams, but no stock setup for running a tank on-gun.

The X7 is made to recreate the form of a many actual firearms. Different accessories can recreate the looks of many different guns. Included cyclone feed means you don't need a separate motorized hopper, but it's more or less your only choice. No magazine feed. Can't run FS rounds (except muzzle loading them, or using extensive home modification). You can run the tank on-gun, or remote. Available aftermarket parts for increased rate of fire like e-grips, double triggers, and RT's.

Really, it boils down to what you want the gun to do. Do you want it to look like a specific gun? Do you want to uber long range with the First Strike rounds? Do you want high rates of fire? Do you want no tank with magazine feed? And so on.

Honestly, unless you find a 20rnd mag for the T9 you're just wasting 12gs.

Go with another manufacturer of pistols.

Actually, the magazines on the T9 (and T8, and T8.1) have a check valve in them so that you DON'T waste the 12 gram when you eject them. Pop them out, refill, and slap them back in with very little wasted air. Most players easily get 24 shots (3 magazines worth) per 12 gram, and that's with ejecting, reloading, and reinserting the magazines. With a little careful polishing many players have been able to get up to 32 shots (4 mags worth).

Also, you can run a remote adapter in place of the 12 gram. On my personal T9 I run it with remote, with 8 First Strikes in the magazine and a hopper full of normal paint. First the FS rounds early in the game when I have the range advantage, and a quick turn of the barrel and I have a full hopper of normal paint for when things get close and personal. Though if you want to run like this remember the FS rounds chrono about 20 fps higher, so adjust the gun to run full field speed with the FS rounds and suffer through being a bit under ranged with the normal paint.

Really depends on what you're looking for. For an all around marker, I'd go with the X7. From what I hear it's an improved version of the A5, which is a pretty rugged marker to begin with. It's a decent mid-level mech, cyclone feed gives it a decent firing capability, and if you're into milsim type stuff you can add a lot of those kind of accessories on.

I'd actually recommend neither one. I'd go with a Tippmann A5 hands down. They're cheaper, so the money you save could be put back into the gun as upgrades.

But if you're set on getting one or the other, I'd say X7 for the reasons everyone else has listed. You may also want to look at the Spec Ops Longbow kit for the Tiberius. I *think* it's a 20 round mag, but I'm not entirely sure.

If you prefer to do some sniping, first thing is first, you better get a spotter who's willing to lay down paint for you once you get spotted, maybe someone with an EGO.
But if you prefer to go on your own, I'd go with a Smart Parts SP1, you got your milsim looks, efficient, very quiet and deadly accurate and plus if you get into a real good firefight, you will be able to still lay down paint, in 3 burst mode or even full auto.

I second the vote for the SP1, more rugged than either the T9 or the X7, simpler to maintain, and much softer on paint. You don't need to worry about breaks, and it's cheaper than both, while being better in practically every area (unless looks are more important than functionality).

Can't go wrong with the x7. I have 3 of them, 1 set up with flatline, 1 with straightline & 1 with freakback kit 10" all american barrel with apex tip. All with e-grip. They have been great.

Tiberius T9. Its an all in one package. You can have any setup and if you want to switch to a higher volume gun you can keep it on you as a pistol.

X7... full auto. (in some cases) modular. assault rifle.
t9.... semi-auto (always) modular(can be used as pistol) and with a first strike upgrade, laser accurate. a test once shot 100 yards with first rounds on target.
Best option for sniper. but heavy. and expesive.(marker+first strike upgrade+first stike ammo) you deside
