I'm on my phone so I won't try to add people right now.

What is happening with smart parts?

Even though I hate what they did to ICD, I'm sure everyone will agree they are an important company. They sponsor a multiude of teams- pro and lower levels. They also did, in my opinion the most important progression of speedball and paintball as a sport, by making the Ion and the other low price highends. If they went under I think we'd lose a key contributor to the sport in general.

That we would, but the set back is temporary I believe. Some warrenty centers got shut down but a few are still up.

A lot of people don't understand the business end of what smart parts did. All they see is a bunch of douche bags suing another company because of likeness in product but their were obviously patents sp had the icd overlooked. It's business and it's what other successful companies do everyday. SP is huge to paintball (one huge sponsor to psp) and now it's declining because people hate the fact a company stood up for their rights. Now I will agree that sp does put some low end **** on their stock guns but again that's business. Sell the gun will low end parts and then sell upgrades to make more money. Good business plan, but it does get annoying when you spend 700 on a new nxt shocker and it doesn't even have a clamping feedneck...

O and paintball3 = og. He's been in these forums for years.

Promaster and a FS7 were my first two nice guns. Such a pity.

Edit: List updated.

Also Moonboot, I know I won't ever 'like' them because this industry is still growing and even though the "competition" and "business" argument are completely valid; I believe (ideally) that this sports big producers should let themselves bloom and flourish before it gets cut throat. Eventually it would pay off, I mean as long as people are playing everyone is going to do at least...well. Once this sport grows into something more legitimate then people can blow each other up about patients and copyrights.

Basically, smartparts could have done less damage, sued for less... or whatever.

infamousaddict - I here what you're saying, I have my own problems with sp - who doesn't? I also think you raise a good point but look at the other side of the coin. You own a business (sp) in a difficult industry to make money in and someone (icd) disregards what is rightfully yours. Just another way to make more money. It does suck but I guess karma is hitting sp pretty hard.

And sl74's are nice guns and aren't that expensive used. I would love to have enough money for a clone though.

im debating on getting a clone or an rx.
i want to dish out the money for it, but i dont. i might trade for a droid, or buy one cheap so i dont have to dish out money for the new one.

edit: damn you lol

Yeah go with the clone. droids get about 1300 shots per 4500 and clones get 1700+. Macdev resigned the bolt system so it's completely simple to take out instead of having to fool with allen keys like you had to with the droids and the clone comes with an oled (which is preference but I like them). Get the clone and if you don't like it give it to me lol
