Oh No!!!!!





So I decided To go and buy an ego8 and purchase the .50 cal kit as well.

I have never owned an ego and am only buying one purely to try out .50 cal.


I will also be purchasing the kingman rapid as well, and I hope everything goes well and thy I like this transition, or else I'll just be selling this kit.



I am impressed with the weight of the .50 setup and love to play front, so this will work well for me. I am a speedball player and usually play pump anyway, so I'm used to different types of play.


The fact that it comes in 4000 count cases intrigues me, because I am a college student and that would definitely save me money. I never could justify being a paint slinger because of the price, but since I'm getting double the rounds, I figured why not?

An ego7 would be cheaper. Also the rapid will not fir in the ego feedneck you will have to make the hopper feedneck thicker. If you have an old gravity fed hopper you can cut the feedneck.

Just take some black electrical tape and wrap it around the Rapid's feed tube. That's what I did. Cheap easy, and works.

If ya try and use the Rapid loader with the Ego kit then you will need to improvise a sleeve for the feedneck. I cut an old Halo shell feedneck off and it worked perfectly. Love my 50 cal 09 Ego!!!

Yes. Most people buy a product and hype it up without carefully examining it.

yes i have always noticed that and it bothers me.


so far though, in my initial thoughts, .50 cal seems to be a interesting turn with its own set of advantages and even may have a place in tournaments.



for me it seems to break fine if kept chilled (which i always do), and the fill actually seems to be about as thick (f13)



the drawbacks though, are that it is more susceptible to wind and has about 20-30 feet less effective range (it seems to be about 0-130 feet effectiveness for me)

Seems like all the boys from Florida have Formula 13 paint in 50 caliber...

seriously?? thats cool


i can see larger fields and new fields doing this, especially new fields.


in the marketing aspect, it is a sound decision to build a new field with .50 cal markers, especially because of rental people.

Right now it's not really a sound decision to do that. The future of .50 cal is iffy at best and any initial investment in it would be a huge risk for the field. They'd have to purchase a fleet of .50 cal rental guns and hoppers, as well as decide how much paint to order. They could very possibly (and probably) be stuck with either tons of paint that no one wants, or money spent on paint and equipment that never arrives. It wouldn't be a terribly smart business decision.
