Then wear gloves, or wrap it in tape. Doesn't take a genius to solve this problem.

Yeah but SS freaks are beast, and regular freaks are a dime a dozen, and they work well... although a CF tipped kit would be righteous.

I love my Valken gloves so much, that it annoys me when I forget to bring them to the field, and have to play without them.

Yeah, the SS Freak Inserts would be beast with an Alien barrel that has a carbon fiber tip.

I'd be VERY interested to see what kind of spoolie he does. I only hope he doesn't do it in Taiwan, which seems to lead to the kind of quality issues you see from DP. I'm still leery of the Invasion for that very reason.

I held it for the first time this weekend and the machining is amazing. Taking out the bolt and looking down the entire length of the marker, barrel included, is seamless and the normal hiccups at the beginning of a release have all been taking care of.

I'm not saying don't wait and buy an Indy because I do love mine but the Invasion is just as good a deal as Jack told us.

I also had a chance to pick Jack's ear about his spool. I don't want to say too much but I will say that he is fooling around with designs and from the sound of it we will be happy and it will hold up to reliability and efficiency of other Alien's. Maybe he will come in here and say more but I don't want to say more than what he pretty much posted on the forums already.

The only thing stopping me from getting an Indy is that it has a macroline.

2012 Indy that i would like to see:

`Macroless
`Wrap-around grips
`Better ASA


If you people want to have a barrel with freak inserts just send your barrel in to get tapped.

Everyone always gripes about the ASA but me and my team have yet to see a single problem.

I guess it could be center-line but thats not a big deal for me and hoseless kind of take care of that lol.

Personally I am not a fan of wrap around grips. Macroless is ok, but no big deal.

The indy asa is fine to me. Maybe a center fitting, but like Smokage said if its macroless then it wont matter.

You know, I thought I was a fan of wrap around but it turns out I had just never given panels a chance.

A couple weeks with my Indy and my Valken Two-finger gloves and I dont think I can go back to wrap arounds.

^^^^^ Too funny.

"I bought this great marker that I love, but I'm allergic to the grip. I guess I have to get rid of the marker."



I'm sure the real problem is that he's not used to holding something as big around as the Invasion grip.

Where do these comments come from???
The Invasion is only as wide as the battery and depth is same as most others - the width of the grip was kept small by making the edges quite thin As far a allergic - Stinger make panels - just tell them if you want them for Hater or if you want ones for OLED's they have them for both Virtue and for Tadao.

Jack, his complaint was with the foregrip, and I was suggesting that he's used to holding, ummmm.....smaller things. LOL

The Invasion foregrip looks to be perfect in size.

got it now... I thought it was the grip - grip
Yea, the front grip can come off if he wanted - maybe wrap it with tape - for a baseball bat or for tennis

Or, simply wear gloves. Being allergic to the front grip is no reason to get rid of the marker.

That would seem like an obvious solution but........if you want to be able to work your trigger decently then you'll need to be fingerless(at least two fingers on each hand). Fingerless with an allergy means..........swollen painful fingers. Tape would be the only way to go which isn't a big deal to me but other people can be picky.

I've seen guys wiping their guns off during a game because they don't want to get it dirty lol. What can you do, people are picky
