What should I buy?

I'm taking a leave of absence from paintball for awhile so I can pay off some things, but I plan on starting back up in the spring. Gonna need a new gun and looking for some suggestions on what to get.

Honestly wait till you are ready to start playing again. I took a break for a few years and the amount of good guns out there is amazing now. If you are set to start back in the spring just start looking at the end of winter, it will be the off season and there will be good deals out there.

I would suggest going to your local store/field and finding what is available. Hold it in your hands and see what feels right.

Of those, what did you like best? Minis can be found cheap, DP has problems from my understanding. If you like the DM, sell that quickly because in a few months, it will be worth much less. Pick uo a DM7 on the cheap.

Mini for low low ends g6r's in my personal opinion are pretty decent, axes are also very reliable and will last a long time or at least until you can save. Good luck

I liked all of them, still have the G5, it's my buddies gun now. Loved my LV1 but it kicked a little to much so thinking about going with a geo. The dm was great but I think I like my lv1 a bit better as far as design and ease of access with the OLED. The dm is being sold tomorrow.

im a little impressed that you said the lv1 kicked witch ram did you have in it? as far as it goes its all about what you want to spend. as far as it goes its up to you in your price range. i think there are alot of other smoother spools than the geo, id stick with dye or look at dlx or other spools if thats what you like.

The kick on the lv1 was very small but noticeable. I traded it for the dm, i don't really have a price range. I just don't play that much, hence why I'm selling the dm. I plan to play more when I get some things paid off. Definitely liking the spoole valves more than poppet. Sorry, I'm kind of a noob in the paintball world, what's the dlx?

I had a G4 and never had problems and borrowed a friends fx for 3 months and never had problems with that either. Maybe I am lucky? lol
