Glad this got stickied, you really did a kick *** job with this. Kind of would be nice to see the poppet valve markers broken up into "higher end" and "lower end" IE having the Ego and the tippman in different categories. Other than that this is spot on. Others come in here and try to re-write this on their own but... well... this is a hell of a lot better.

Also, on masks maybe a brief discussion on protection vs. bounce. IE some new players really don't want a mask with flex and should stick with something more rigid (and cheaper too)... A buddy of mine got a flex 8 as his first mask and took some face slaps on his first time out... he got a little shaken up by it t say the least.

On pod packs it is important to get something with the elastic ejectors or what ever they are called, my first Nxe pack didn't have those and a pod got "stuck" in their as I was running and getting shot at trying to reload, I bought a new pack ASAP after that.

On tanks, maybe change the date from 2007 to something along the lines of "in the last 3 years" or whatever, a tank from 07 is going to be out of hydro soon.

Also, when buying used it is important that newbs buy from someone reputable and is going to sell them a clean and well functioning marker. A lot of sellers on here send dirty markers that need o-ring rebuilds... this can be countered by asking a lot of good questions and ideally calling the seller. When buying used, as a newb, it is more important to buy from someone reputable and is going to send you clean gear then getting the best and cheapest price. Your going to save hundreds of dollars eitherway buying used vs. new might as well have the process go smoothly then get a marker for $50 less but have it pissing air everywhere when you get to the field.

Once again, kick *** job, short concise and spot on!

I don't want to separate the guns into categories because if there's one cool thing I've learned about life from paintball, it's that doing things like that causes some serious ignorance.

I really ****ing love this Freestyle I just got.


The gun isn't exactly what you'd consider a high end gun, but tbqf, it's a lot comfier than almost every single gun I have. The only other gun I may prefer over this is my Gat.

If someone wants to take a promaster over an F7 or an Ego6, by all means they should totally have it if it's what tickles their pickle


Anywho, I may be going off again.

And yeah, I should do that on the tank thing.


Thanks for the heads up and the kind words, JC!

Neither.

Totally dependent on how you play.

With pump, you'd save more.

With open class pump, you'd spend more than with stock class. That is, if you shoot more with open class.

With stock class you have to keep buying 12 gram cartridges instead of shooting from a tank, so if you play lots of stock class, it could be more expensive than the typical cost for someone who plays open class.


Some weekends I spend $120 playing woodsball.

Some I spend $40.


Same goes with speedball, although I'd assume that playing speedball with a pump gun would be the most naturally cost-effective way to play.
