Also with bringing less paint on the field you run the risk of longer, and more stale-mate games, and possibly lead to games timing-out.

So, therefore.. it leaves option number 2. Less rof, but I can bring a case of paint on my back if I felt like it. I think that's a better option out of those three.

I actually got accused of shooting 19 for whatever reason, haha. I don't think the limited bps is as bad as some of the other things that we don't always realize that they could take away. Like the PSP only have a half-X now. I hope to god that the Cfoa keeps their X's...

the half x is one of the smartest things any league could do... it plays exactly like an X and is half the trouble so many xball games had to have time outs because the refs had to worry about the lines anytime the wind barely blew...

^^^ I will have to disagree with this one!!

Taking away the top half of the X is going to change play. You will be able to shoot over the "A". You can not shoot over an "x" and it still be possible to hit someone.

If you read up. They say it is designed for no blind shooting over the top. If you want to shoot 250 so you can blind shoot over the top of it by all means do so. The A..doesn't look to pretty but it's one of the few good moves by the psp. Game filming is much easier. Don't have to worry about the wind ripping the lines apart that holds it up. Wanna see a nice pic??? Granted this is not a problem for the psp as much as field owners. But since everyone in the united states likes to suck psp's **** then it helps out all the small guys also.

Stole it off my friend's avvy so it's sorta hard to see but you get the general idea.

have you played it? all the NCPA people used the half X last season and they all have said countless times everywhere that shooting over the top of the A is not something teams ever looked at when walking fields or trying to plan lanes. one in a few thousand might get lucky and fall down, otherwise even corner to corner it is over the other persons head unless you are shooting like 180.

Props for CFOA to put this out there, very professional and appreciate ability to give you some feedback... but don't expect to get full results posted online or that majority rules based on feedback. Thats not how a business is run.

To those that took the time to take the survey, Thank You!!

I could totally be wrong but till otherwise I don't see that photo as shopped.

No offense Lastcall but that is BS. The way you and these shop owners seem to look at things there won't be any sales of anything high tech any more because there is no need.

Guess what....an ion and a halo could keep up just fine at 15.4. That was two years ago. I didn't see too many of that combination of gear from the 15.4 times until now. What do you shoot? Why? Anything and EVERYTHING that was electronic could do 15.4 bps including ions and spyders. You didn't see many if any people shooting them.

Simply put paintball spends as much money if not the majority of money on looks as it does on functionality. That won't change. People will still buy Rotors and other hoppers that feed more then 10.5. People will still buy markers that can shoot 28 bps. Why? Because they can and they like that marker or piece of equipment.
