Sell the Alias? Value post, not VS post

I have an Alias with the following:
Yakuza board, full Freak Kit, adj. ram cap, critical trigger, tons of parts kits, lurker ram, oops asa, torpedo reg with aka cap.....the thing shoots great, its +/- about 3 with good paint, and i can put paint right where i want with that gun. and i'll probably send it off for ano......

Does there come a point where its pointless to sell your current setup? I always mod guns then sell them for something "better", but i'm not sure anything would shoot much better than the alias with yakuza and lurker ram, especially when you get offers of $200 for a nice timmy. just kinda wondering if i should keep it forever.

It's really a personal choice.

I plan to keep a pair of my Proteges for a long time, only partly influenced by re-sale value, mostly because I love shooting my Proteges.

Wait until spring, you'll likely see re-sale value rise again, because people will be looking to play again, and want something nice. Paintball isn't all year round for everybody.

Keep it. I have very similar feelings about my ripper that I've upgraded. I don't use it that much, so I might as well sell, but I'd be getting so little for it I might as well keep it.

Seriously though, there's nothing you could buy for the price of an alias that would shoot as nice. Keep it and mow faces.

There is no reason to sell your gun. Nothing out there will be significantly better, and there is plenty that can go wrong (bad deals, broken guns, etc)

Unless you're not feelin it with the timmy don't bother changing, just buy paint and mow faces.

After shooting countless guns I have gone back to a 2k2 lasoya with WAS board, gen4 trigger, and a bumper ramcap and couldn't be happier with my setup.

Shoot what YOU like.

Paintball is beyond the point of huge performance upgrades. The Alias was a top of the line marker a few years ago and nothing has come out since then that is drastically different, especially with ROF caps.

I went from owning every gun under the sun and recently went back to a stock 2k4 Alias, sold my other guns, and am using the extra $ to fund paint for next season.

I might trade up to a protege or vice but personally my Dark is money and unless a super nice offer comes along I doubt Ill be giving her up.

I've been out of the game for a few years. I'm getting back into it now that my son is 12 and wants to play.

I was a gun whore and went thru alot of high end guns.

I've looked at & shot the new stuff and am leaning toward a timmy as a 05 Dark is still the best gun I can think of.

And yes, I'd give you $200
