Best BT for sniper with speedball capablities?

Whats the best BT gun that works well as a sniper but can still not be huge and oversized for speedball... I realize some of that is on the barrel length but im talking guns? and also is the delta mainly for close quarters or can that be used as a sniper or long rage marker?

Get the Delta Elite, It has the apex on there for long range shots but it also has the egrip and rip clip.

the delta is a bit cumbersome. The TM7 has better modes for speedball and can be as accurate if you upgrade the barrel. The TM7 also has eye's so that's a big plus.

they all pretty much shoot the same distance when they are limited to 300fps or lower. unless its got a barrel with backspin or something. egos are accurate. but your looking bt? just get a tm7

does the Apex add backspin or something can some1 explain how it works. I know it can change the direction of your shot.

yeah the apex puts backspin on the ball and that causes the ball to go further... not really acuracy but farther distance

so if you put the Apex tip on a really accurate barrel it would make it less accurate or you the accuracy stay the same.

it will give you increased distance at slightly decreased accuracy. You can turn it off though any time to just rely on the accuracy of your barrel. It's really good when need the extra distance or need to lay suppressive fire. An important thing to remember is at these higher distances you'll get a lot less breaks

is it true you can make shots hook right and left by changing the position of the tip.

if you setup your tm7 right than it will be fine with brittle paint

not sure if its the stock barrel causing the brakes or the gun.

alot of people said it chops brittle paint alot!!!!!!!

i haven't really used really brittle paint with it yet so i have no clue if it will chop a lot.

I find the stock barrel is not that accurate , my stock Spyder barrel is sadly more accurate then the stock TM7 barrel.

But i still love my TM7, also i'm getting a mini in about 2 weeks can't wait.

can you get into detail about setting up my TM7 "right"

apex tips can go on any apex ready barrel and can be modded on to almost any other barrel on the market using tape or pvc

I currently own a heavily modded BT-4 sniper platform with which I play sniper for a team, have played with the other models, and on top of that am a pretty avid speedballer (timmy and shocker ftw). Prettymuch my whole team runs tm-7's and I got to try one out extensively today. WoW is all I have to say. Set at standard 200 psi it shoots miracles. We had marskmanship practice today and I was able to put ball on ball @ 180 feet on a torso model (6/10 shots to be exact, 2 were wild curves and 2 were off by about 2 inches). @ 150 feet I hit 8/10 w/ two massive wind floaters.

In game It's very light and quick. Changing from single to burst is a snap and she shoots true. Some like the feel of the double trigger to walk for speedball but trust me the TM-7 can hold up with the best. I was thoroughly impressed

ok guys im going to try to put this simply, paintball is not airsoft. One marker is NOT better/more accurate then the other. The difference between every marker is the size/how comfortable it is to hold/how much kick it has/weight/modes on the board.

everything is personal preference you have to go shoot different guns for yourself.
