I bought an ego from Alex "Mouse" Goldman back in 08, he gave me the gun with a fried board, no battery, and he promised to give me his jersey with the purchase and never did. Thankfully eclipse was extremely generous and fixed everything for free. But yes you still have to be careful even with pro players who get the gear for free.

to be fair, a lot pros treat their gear like crap if they get it for free. I'm not saying every pro player is like this, most smart players aren't. But as we know, you don't need to be a genius to be a pro paintball player.

As with everything else, do your research, shoot the gun if possible, and if you don't, blame yourself first.

got home from a shoot to this... ESPN on the HD screen (mute), moneyball on the big screen, and the pit puppy asleep in her bed.


And why should i move out, again?

Luckily back in 2008 and even 2009, Eclipse still had a no questions asked tech policy, where they would make your gun shoot free of charge as long as it still had all of the stock parts installed.

Not so much anymore. Each part is now in a sealed plastic bag with a barcode, so when you bring your gun to an Eclipse booth at an event, they have to scan each part to keep tabs of inventory, and charge you appropriately. This is only the case with out of warranty markers (i.e. 1 year old). It's not really them becoming dicks, I can understand the need to be tight with handouts in the current economic times. They still don't charge for simple things like orings and detents, but if you bring a gun in with a blown solenoid, it is going to be hard to get that repaired for free like in the past.

On the flipside, with their new inventory system, they keep track of your marker's serial number, so they know exactly what was repaired on your gun and when. I still think that Eclipse has the best customer service out of all major marker manufacturers. BLAST is doing a really good job as of late as well revamping their customer service department.

I've bought 2 pro used guns so far. One dynasty smg off Johnny Perhack and then right before commanders cup 2008 an 08 ego off Drewbie. Both guns shot really well and can as described. But in general I think pros beat there gear up.

I totally agree. I was just upset that he actually handed me a gun with a broken board inside

I just got a message for Alex Goldman and he must have seen what I posted yesterday and he is redeeming himself for what happened with my ego back in 08. That shows a lot to me even if it is a few years late. ALEX GOLDMAN is a good man and I hope I can do more business with him in the future.

I donno what the deal is with mike, but i still feel that mccormick AND mouse are both very stand up individuals. If you dont know hinman, he only keeps the best in the sport all around.

I learned long ago 99% paintball players are dbags and trust no one in this sport... I would not even trust myself, comes with the nature of the sport from what I have seen over last 10 years. Since I have maintained that mentality I have yet to be screwed

counting the days to Claxxtons!




I mizz petahhh da heatahhh
