I wanted to jump in to mention that custar has picked up DPs and an ego just over this past year, and you'd lose your wager.

It just doesn't make sense to me that new model guns are somehow inferior to old ones. I also hate vintage cars.

Not to mention a Dye spooler, an Alien, and a MacDev Drone with the DX engine that I haven't brought out yet.

I have nothing against new markers, but when it comes down to it, we are shooting markers at limits of 15 bps and 285 - 300 fps, all of which the markers in the poll and that I mentioned outside the poll can do. Unless you ignore physics and believe advertising hype that somehow a paintball launched at certain fps from one marker will fly farther than one launched at the same fps from another marker (absent an Apex or Flatline or similar), the next characteristics to compare are consistency, "feel", efficiency, ease of maintenance, and quality of build. I guess looks can be in there somewhere. Each of us is going to put different emphases on each of those, making the ranking of those somewhat subjective.

Personally, I rank quality of build and consistency higher than the other factors, and the markers I prefer were built in high-end machine shops in the US where very precise tolerances were achieved. To me, Bob Long markers are the best of the options listed at keeping that alive. However, I would like to try one of the new Valken Protons (basically a rebranded Mokal Aura) which I hear are very well made and shoot nicely.

I have nothing against new model markers, I just prefer the qualities that older markers seem have in greater abundance.

You opened the door so I am going to step through it. I vote FreeFlow.
What's a FreeFlow, that some sort of new-fangled whip?

Don't hate! The gremlin and javelin were pretty cool and Renault turned the eagle into a rally car.
