I disagree strongly, but to each his/her own.

As do I. Focusing on improving skill rather than having something that can throw massive amounts of paint downrange with no intended target should be more important.

I have no idea how that relates to what has been quoted, but that's ok.

I see this was created a year a year ago, and is GREAT advice for starting out....I wish someone had told me all that when i started, things would have gone better!

I would just like to add a hopper to the list, the Virtue Spire
/http://www.virtuespire.com/
MSRP is 185/190, but i doubt you can get any used since it only just came out.

its on the same level as a Dye Rotor, high quality rubber/plastic for durability and about the same price for a new one. If I had a choice, getting a new loader after my Rotor breaks, I would have to flip a coin to see which to purchase because its a close call.

"If you suck with the worst gun on the market, you will suck with the best gun on the market."

I recently got myself a Geo3. I have been practicing "one balling" on woods/recball fields. I found it really helps with snap shooting people.

Give it a shot....take a couple ball tubes (or a handfull of balls) and go out without a hopper and manually feed one ball at a time. Lots of fun and you can play a pump-like style and have a blast while getting better.

I realize that I am quoting myself.....But i wanted to add more to my original post about the spire.

I just picked one up and it really does play very nice. durable and low profile makes it a buy for life.

There were no jamming issues or slow ball feeds, it kept up as fast as i could fire. There is a lot of blinking from the LED as i was firing, in low light it could be an issue of giving away your position(could cause a seizure ), but in an outdoor daytime setting its no problem.

The hardest thing to get used to was to lean back to get more balls to the motor instead of forward (I am used to a Rotor). A Minor issue was feeding balls into a pod, it doesnt unload quickly becuase it is shot activated. otherwise works magnificently.

it definately holds 200 balls on its own which is a plus over other hoppers of the same size. The profile definately makes a difference in that effect but its personal preference for the expensive loaders. Whatever you like best.

I noticed the shells are made from a really dense plastic which I like.
