Poppit or Spoolie for Scenario/Big Game

I have been debating this for a while now. Have always been a fan of Ego's and such but I have a few teamates who really like Spools as well. Been looking at some Ego X's/11's and some Dye NT11's. Just wondering peoples opinion on the subject as I know there are discrepancies about which is the better one to go with for Scenario play. I know most Poppits will have better air efficiency but I know the NT11 has pretty dang good efficiency as well. Please post back as it pertains to what kind of gun I will be playing with for the 2012 and maybe more season. Thanks!!

really what ever you prefer.. i prefer spoolies but I'm hopefully going to pick up an ego11 in the spring..

but if your planning on walking on the field and shooting 10 pods at a time go poppit.

yeah see I dont know that answer for sure. The team I am on is almost all scenario and such so the game MAY last a while. But I dont know for sure, Heard the NT11 is pretty friendly on air but poppit is the one thats been suggested to me by various people and spool from various people. so confusing heh

whatever feels best in your hands, poppit usually are more gas efficient but kick a little more. spool usually use a little more depending on how its tuned, and kick less. im selling my PE's to move back to the shocker depsite what anyone says about them since they feel better to me. maybe find someone with both at your local field and try them out see what ones better in your eyes

I would say poppit.
Easier to maintain/quicker troubleshooting, efficiency, performance in cold weather.
I have had far less issues with poppits than spools

You could pick up a used VICE (which is very gas efficient) and a used SHOCKER (my preferred spoolie) or DM 8 and have both. Still have some cash for playing.

Pretty much that.

Ego vs. Geo wise both are the same except Geo is less efficient on air.

Stacked tube poppits are easier to do field repairs. Nothing quite beats being able to take the bolt out and run a squeegee through the entire gun. Egos are also really easy to take apart.

However, with today's high ends, the difference between the two is minimal. Enclosed bolt(what many people refer to as spoolies, basically a single tube that contains the entire engine) tend to be a bit quieter.

Honestly, it really comes down to personal preference.

I like poppets for when I'm playing a scenario game mostly for efficiency reasons however, recently my Macdev clone has been surprising me. It's quiet, efficient, and REALLY easy on paint.

I say go with this. Can get a nice Ego8 and a DM8 and still have less money in both than you would an Ego 11

I prefer open bolt spool valve blowbacks. If your going to be machinegunning the entire time, you would consider using a g6r or any other inline stacked tube poppet design. If your going to be playing smart and concise, I'd roll a spool for less kick. But hey. That's me. You'll have to try a small scale.scenario game to get a.feel.for it.

It comes down to your role and length of game, if its on/off fighting in a large area, a spoolie because its so much quieter. But if your defending something and you need air efficiency, go poppet. If you do go spoolie either get the dm 12 because of on field repairs, or a key set just incase (but spoolie tend to have small bolt problems less frequently. And whoever said poppet has to be open your wrong, look at the mini. Its referring to the poppet valve, don't feel like typing all the details but someone described it well already

Out of all the people talking about poppet's only three have spelled it correctly...

Anyway to the main point, if you are playing a large game like OK Dday, living legends, Monster, Castle conquest etc. You may not want to leave the field if you run out of air, of you simply may just want to shoot a ton of paint.

For something like that, a poppet like the G6R or Victory would be right up your ally for that. Which can get over a case off a 68/45. Even if it's not that large of a game and you just don't wanna waste time at the fill station they are still great guns to use.

Yeah sorry bout the spelling, never really figured it out myself heh. So a Victory is considered a poppet? always thought it was a spool, if it is in fact a poppet I might be looking into those. yeah I don't know the exact role I will be in for every game so I dont know what is going to happen yet but all this stuff is very very helpful info from all of you and it is helping me make a choice of what to purchase because yes the first big event I will be hopefully prticipating in will be Living Legends 5 so it is crucial for me to figure out my gear ASAP.

Its a inline poppet. All marq's are inline poppets.

There as reliable as the owner makes them, follow the manual and take care of it as needed and it will take care of us.Neglect it and do things incorrectly and it will not like you.
