Met the owner of PSI New York, he was awesome, I need to play there
If you go to BattleCreek, tell me and I'll meet you there so you can test the vapor out.

Neither Machine, nor myself, nor Ken have ever made any claims of bulletproof markers that never fail. I wrote that tuning guide with a troubleshooting/leak section for a reason

If you look at my review of the vapor on PbN, you can CLEARLY READ FOR YOURSELF:

He said that everybody used vapors at CFPS(regional event in florida). I then proved him wrong with pictures showing other wise.

I saw the tent too many times, I have shot one and have seen them shoot all season long. while I admit they look nice i dont like the way they shoot or how they feel

Every gun has issues, and it's irritating to hear you go on about how the $0.05 o-rings on the Vapor are somehow more impervious to leaks than anyone else's $0.05 o-rings. Unless Machine has revolutionized o-ring gland design to never leak or fail, in which case they should be doing bigger things than making paintball markers.
DOTTT... My biggest thing is I have seen them go down in person at multiple events. I am not the only one who has. But to come on here and say they havent gone down or it was because of a hopper or rain that wasnt even there is dumb.

@pbizlife i took those pictures and was helping out that palm beach squad in the pits and can honestly say that more non-machnie guns had problems than the vapors. i think the only problem that squad had with a vapor was that they accidentally turned the eyes off and the gun was shooting more than 12 bps and they got a penalty for that. cant speak for the other squads as i wasnt paying attention to them

also alot of them were actually switching between vapors and the actual guns they own

Not everyone on the team Has a Vapor as I stated, we had multiple teams playing on both days. We were also running the Test Drive, during which some of our team guns are bring used by players from other teams. There may not have been a gun for everyone on the team to use at that time.

You were right tho there was an iussue with that purple gun, I talked to the player who has it, the rear breach oring was worn and caused the leak that you saw. I didnt know about it because it took a total of 3 minutes for him to fix it after they played. My mistake.

Who cares? Guns have problems no matter what gun it is. I saw a GT go down due to an asa oring, I guess all GTs suck now. I do think all spool valves require a little more attention than say an Ego.


Why the Vapor gets put under a magnifying glass is beyond me.

Word, I've seen plenty of Egos go down ,same with just as many Shockers ,Dm's and Timmy's.and I agree,spoolie/dumps do take a bit more patience/effort to keep working,but now days its nothing like the dm3 was lol

I think it's just looked at it more since it has a top end price tag,even tho you get everything but a tank with the marker as people have stated many times over.

Its honestly a Great buy for me. I haven't played serious since 05/06. And I don't have any amazing high end loader or fancy barrel kits (have an Old freak kit,well played with). So for me,I get a Great Marker,Great matching barrel kit with a solid case,and an Amazing loader. Money well spent for me.

O,I did get a Valken Vmax,forgot about that.like 40 on BST but Its not as good as a rotor im told..

Similar story here. I had been rocking the SFT for years. When I got back into it after not playing for awhile I jumped around from PMs, to DMs, to Ego, Geo, Axe, back to DM and kept jumping back to the shocker. Now that I have a Vapor I've been happy with it and it comes with everything I need. Now I have a back up that I can use to drag a friend out there and play for the first time.

If there's a major even near you, Machine will probably have a booth setup with a Test Drive Program (basically, they'll let you shoot a pod through one of the viper's markers, OR if you're playing in a tournament, you can temporarily trade in your marker and play a match with the Vapor)

So if I give the booth a spyder pilot ('09)
I can use a vapor in a game?

I'm hoping there are restrictions lol

Well id assume you need to be on a team that's actually playing. So you'll end up registering your player Id and infos so you won't be able to just walk off with it later, regardless of what you marker you loan in..

I doubt Most people would risk a possible Ban/team Ban and other negative results from
Trying to pocket a Vapor

From what I can tell, any marker is fair game, as long as you're a registered player and you're playing that day. Trying to walk off with a vapor will get you banned for life, and could have legal repercussions....IE totally not worth trying.

ProMod I would play this weekend but I got tendinitis in my elbows (inside of my arm) and my biceps. I'm getting better and could plausibly play Sunday, but I don't want to re-injure anything.

Lol dude, I know the feeling. I rock climb every day so I have perpetual tendinitis.


Come out on Sunday and just put a ton of paint through the marker in the chrono area. I'll put it in PSP for ya so you can 1-finger
