Scepter... I've heard of several quality problems with the Pipe. Even if it didn't have the quality problems, if you get a new marker, you'll have to buy a new Pipe kit.. with the Scepter you just have to purchase a new back.

What quality problems? I'm not doubting your claim, but I've not heard anything bad about the quality or construction of the Pipe.

at first i hated it, but that was only because it was raining, like the stuff that falls out of the sky. but then once i shot it while it wasnt raining it was awsome

ya like I said in your thread rain can make any paintballs with any barrel bust out like tony hawk. Anyways ishboo just wondering about your scepter when you look down your inserts is it perfectly smooth, like no flaws at all because both scepters ive had look like they have imperfections and scratches near where they meet the tip and in the middle of the insert and one of my inserts has the bore size written twice on it and the others only have one. lmk

its comepletly smooth. the only reason you can tell its two parts is because it changes colors from the front to the insert. other then that though, it looks like a one peice. the tip and inserts are fine. talk to powerlyte about it, maybe youll have a one of a kind insert?
