well, depends upon how much $$ you wanna spend. If you don't wanna spend a lot, the 98 custom from tippmann is awesome. But there are also guns from kingman, spyders, which are also very good.

if you wanna spend a little bit more, go with an invert mini. Awesome air efficiency and it's pretty easy to maintain, plus empire will be there to help you out if you can't figure it out.

really, it depends what you like the most. Best Advice I can give.... try it out before you buy.

if you wanna spend a little bit more, go with a CYBORG. Awesome air efficiency and it's easy to maintain.

I agree as well

The SP1 is a newer gun with newer technology. You want to know how it compares to a model 98 on a few things? - Efficiency - Recoil - Ball Breakage - Water

There will be some available at Weekend Warriors at D-Day to purchase. I will also be there to tech guns. They also have these videos playing as well in their booth. Move over Tippmann... there is a new gun in town

There are a number of things one might consider when choosing the right marker, for example;
~ If you are a German defending the Atlantic Wall a nice electro would be a great choice, firepower via volume.
~ Maybe you're gunna be one of the Allied landing on the beach. Since there is water in the pond something Non-electro would be a good choice.
~ Rain is also another factor that could make choosing something mech over electro wise. But you can still take those electros out in the rain, I used my Bushmaster during the early morning rains of '05 with great success. Trash bags make wonderful ponchos for your marker....
~ Physical build and/or capabilities could be a consideration as well. You'll be lugging paint, air & water as well as a marker for possible hour(s). If you're on the smaller side think about using something light. In '04 I used a Trracer pump and made several eliminations, of course I was carrying a nerf launcher as well.
~ Plus there is style of play.... do you like to run & gun or fling paint like a tourney backman? If so you probably want something electro. Like to stalk and crawl about? Then something more durable like a 98C fits the bill.
There are many many more things that could impact a decision but I think you get the idea..... Now there is one thing that I always thought was an important consideration that a lot of players don't think about and that's trying to match your Marker/Air to the amount of paint you can (or want) to carry. No need to carry 1200 rounds onto the field if you can only shoot 700 before you need to re-air.
Being vertical is a good thing....

also a very good choice, even if it rains just like any other gun use suran wrap. cost the same as a tippy but you still might want to look into the tippy since they take such a beating and are not electros
Ask me about insurance for your paintball field, league or shop

I used my DM7, one of my friends used his DM6 and my other friend used his A5 w/ flatline barrel, they all worked great and we had fun

i used a q-loaded warped tac one by agd. and i ran with 12 q-loader pods. HA! i wish i were smarter and just brought the loading stuff and not extra pods.

If having lots of makers makes you a gun whore, what are you if you use lots of markers?

Go with the best of both worlds: look hard, and you can find an old Tippmann SL-68II pump. It's got the Tippmann durability, it's a pump, takes any size hopper (big or small), Spare Air tanks (88g rather than 12g) so you can avoid the air lines, or any CO2/compressed air tank if you don't mind the walk to the fill stations. Tippmann pump--mmm, tasty.
