What's the best Paintball Magazine?

I'm not really new to paintball, but I would be new to ordering magazines, lol. What in everyone's opinion is the best paintball magazine for the money?

I'm trying to see how much it is to subscribe, but the website isn't cooperating.

Well, you'll get a lot of opinions, but the real question is, what are you looking for in a paintball magazine?

For me, I rarely get magazines anymore (I am more on the computer/techy side though). The Internet is killing them off. The big problem with magazines is timeliness. They usually have a 2 to 3 month turnaround for their articles. Why should I pay for three month old news when I can see the latest on the various websites/forums out there for free?

Paintball mags are becoming obsolete. I used to get APG years and years ago until it became nothing but advertisements and articles that appeared to be paid for by the advertisers in the mags. It at one point and time was THE PB mag to get, but money talked and apparently it was talking to the guys in APG's offices.

As for the other mags, good bad or indifferent they can not keep up with the internet revolution and will end up the same place the local newspaper is... Defunct.

Times are changing.

I used to buy facefull and pb2xtreme. These were only ever used when i was on the toilet. I like pb2xtreme because it has both woodsball and speedsball.

honestly, don't get a subscription, because new content and guns/gear doesn't come out every single month,and usually back to back months have nothing new.

A lot of the articles in a paintball mag. are pretty much the same ones from before. The only difference between them is event coverage. Although it is more fun/convenient than reading off the internet, it costs alot and gets repetitive.

If you really want to subscribe, I would recommend Facefull. It's really good, but its expensive.
