It's when you get into the hinge frames and mechanical setups like I have when it starts to get complicated...I have one I've been working on for three years, never could get it to stop leaking, although timing it was pretty easy! Electro Cockers don't require much more fine-tuning than any other electro like a Timmy, all you have to do is tell the board how long you want the bolt to stay forwards, how long you want the breech open between shots, and other timing things.

@snakesniper - No Noob here, I played for almost a decade before hanging it up. I actually have my DM4/MacDev up for sale right now on pbnation. I wanted to pickup an Axe since it's affordable and reliable. I don't have the time to tune and muck with all sorts of settings. Hope to see you guys on the field!

Is it jealousy? Is it because it looks undeserved? Why is it that the site of this burns us so badly?


For me, I always felt they haven't earned the right/need to carry around such a nice gun. I carried around a spyder TL-R for 2 years before the Ion came out and I saved up for that gun. I'm always glad I started this way. I got a chance to learn how to move, snap, maintain my gun, and just appreciate the game. Something I feel the spoiled kids won't learn properly.

On teh other hand, look at most rentals have to deal with today. Most recballers are carrying out the nicest guns to play walk ons. Although I have nothing against this, and do it myself quite a bit, I can understand newbs needing the fastest guns to compete.

I don't hate on newbs with decent gear. Anyone can place an order on ANS and look somewhat "AGG"... I actually prefer my newbs with egos and geos etc... DM12... why not? I don't feel as bad when I roll them. To add I also like uncapped ramping... funny to watch a newb snap out the left side of the bunker holding the gun in his right hand shooting 30BPS +

My bad, I didn't see that. I'd definitely pick up an Axe, very simple maintenance and good quality for money.

Haha I think it's because we're just jealous that we can't get good gear in the beginning. And we see how we had crap gear and guns when we started and it just angers us that they start out with good oppose to crap.

We wish we could just go buy all the best gear and not have to worry about how we are going to pay for it

I think its jealousy....or somethin, im 15 and have had a csl, luxe, g6r,ego11,demon, etc... But i paid for it all by myself by trading up and working. But people cant understand that for some reason and then i dont get treated as well and make me feel like i dont want to play. Seriously people should just grow the hell up and paintball instead of bit**ing. And if they are showing disrespect to you ignore it and shoot them a couple extra times on the feild. And for the weird a$$ people who say that when they disrespect their gear it gets you mad? Are you crazy?!? Its their stuff they can do whatever they want with it, its not like you are going to have to pay for it if it breaks. My opinion is stated

I always thought it was nice that parents got their kids into paintball. Sure they drop a hunk of change. But the best part...
You can pick up there stuff for cheap when they go buy 2012 or the next year stuff.

That's not entirely true. People get hated on just for being fortunate enough to own the gear. They don't have to say a word of do a thing. Just be young and own expensive gear and all sorts of assumptions will be made.

and that sir, is why I would hate you (if I knew you).. cause when I was 15 I would have had to mow over 250 lawns for that gun. Not to mention, my first car was 1/3 the cost of your ego 11

Then one should not refer to you as a "kid". Well done, you deserve it.
