I think this player's gripe is that his used gear doesn't net near-new prices. Sorry... The value of something decreases drastically when you use it. Try buying a brand-new car, and then talking to us about near-new value. About the only thing that increases in value, even after "use", are houses/real estate. Sorry to burst your bubble, but used paintball equipment is roughly worth about 50% of the 'new' price, and that is only if the market will bear that price. With the economy the way it is, you're lucky if you spent $500 on something and are able to successfully sell it for >$200 used!

i would suggest keeping all your gear, its not worth it to sell everything, especially if you paid pull price on the items, maybe get rid of your marker alone as the resale will always go down on markers, I'm saying this through personal experience, about 3 years back i decided i wanted to quit after about 2 years of playing, 2 years later i decided i want to start playing again, and now I'm still in the process of getting all my gear back together. its not worth it, you'll be back! just keep your gear.

This is very good advice! If you need cash, at least keep the gun, mask, and tank that you have. Everything else you can pick back up fairly easily and pretty cheaply. I quit (sorta) about three years back. I knew that I would probably play again, so I didn't sell anything. I'm very glad I didn't!

Any this is why Paintball fails. Marketing to a demographic that can't afford it.

I play speedball spending only $20 to $30 a day. No pump (even though I'm thinking of getting into it), use a 68/4500, reloader B, and a DP FX, not exactly a slow setup, but I still only shoot about 1000 a day.

Last tourny I went to I shot about a half a case and was the top of my team in kills...Every scenerio I go to I shoot less then a case and am out on the field the entire time. Just because you have an electro doesn't mean you need to shoot a million balls a day. I shoot an Ego and my last gun was a Mini, learn to aim and paintball becomes MUCH cheaper.

Wrong. I'd like to see how you'd do on a field with a pump.

Good pump play is a skill completely separate from any electro play.
