Endall Which is the best marker to start with? (The VS thread)

This should settle all the reposting of threads that look much too similar...

If you see another gun which you feel is important please post and I will add it to the poll...

edit--This thread originally was a poll. But has morphed into a normal thread.

Feel free to discuss and compare markers to you're blue in the face. This is the place to ask which marker is better between two or more markers, or what's better for a certain price range.

DM4 w/ Tadaho board, CP roller trigger, CP on/off rail, or a Basic '09 SLG? Both at $200.

SLG, save yourself the problems that can come with older guns.

Id pick the DM4 over the slg, but im also a sucker for older matrixes. A properly tuned dm4 will shoot smooth as butter and have amazing consistancy and accuracy.

Honestly there is no endall best marker. Look people need to decide what they like, poppet or spoolie. Then decide Older but better or newer and potentially less work to do. The newbie their-selves can come and take the time to think. I don't mean to sound like an a**h*** but a little research is good for the soul. I enjoyed learning about Dms and Egos

Nicely said

are you serious? a dm4 is almost identical to a pm5. Id take a pm5 over a slg any day. Sure the Slg is a little bit lighter but the dm4 is more well constructed. Just because its old doesnt mean it sucks.

yeah but most online stores that specialize in just matrixes will have an extra dm4 solenoid.

well the first slgs that came out had problems with the bolt, if you get it, make sure the owner hasnt had any problems with it, or if its brand new, your fine, go with the slg( save up and get the UL'd slg though, they are 100 times better)

Sl8r>Ego09

on the contrary, id say for newer ppls (if they NEED and can afford a high end gat) that ego 09 > sl8r because the 09 will be newer and have less problems. also, if you have enough for a sl8r, you might as well get an 09 for only a little bit more
