The color orange

Hey guys im about to jump into the cfoa series but had a question. I have a sunburnt orange Machine Vapor and I was wondering if thats okay to use. Ive had mixed reviews on the color code. Some people say its okay some people say that its in the spectrum of colors that illegal. Can someone give me a direct answer to this.

The rule is:
9.3.2. Prohibited colors – any player found to be using a marker whose color may impede the judge’s ability to make a proper call, may be asked to discontinue the use of that marker.

So no that color would not be acceptable. You might could play with it if you could wrap it up with athletic tape or something so that not more that about 10% of the marker was orange. They have allowed orange and yellow guns that were wrapped up real well before. So if it was wrapped up well enough and the Refs wouldn't have a problem distinguishing a hit on it, then you could probably play with it.

It won't be allowed as it is. It's too orange. And if try it and actually get away with it in a game or two, eventually someone will whine about it and you'll be hosed...and it'll probably happen at the 10 second warning. Wrap it up or tape it up and you'll be fine.

I've used painters masking tape on my yellow gun this season and the head ref said it was fine AND it left no sticky residue afterwards. Before that, I used electrical tape since it was a last minute fix and life sucked afterwards because the residue was so hard to get off. Me and Turpenoid became good friends.

no it isn't allowed because it is a vapor. But for real yeah man sorry the color is a no go. That is what makes me sad because I wanted a HH luxe but I can't use it here
