Leave it to Dye

I bet you the new DM's will have a gasthrough. It seems the sport is headed in that direction.

If it isn't over $600 I think I might get one...

Good Job Dye! The video of it shooting and alternating between different firing modes instantly was impressive.

I am extremely impressed that Dye decided to go back to being innovative instead of releasing the same crap with a new number.

To all the fan boys saying Dye won't go macro-less because its "better" to have a macroline? You can officially suck it.
Kingman also has a mag/hopper/FS capable gun which will probably be a lot cheaper. They also have a mag fed pump as well so there are cheaper options for those who like the idea but not the price. Of course the kingman model will be a blow back base rather than a spooler.

Options are good!

You could attach a stock, it takes a battery, air is required to shoot...? That's about all I can find that's similar.

looks nicely designed, with the clean dye style to it. nicer than most other mil sim types out there. I still don't really get these markers though, I just don't get why you would want all the extra stuff on there that doesn't do anything, it's just inefficient

^ Thats the amazing point of this marker, none of it is "inefficient," useless weight. This marker should never be labeled "mil-sim." Tactical or scenario-oriented yes, but it does not simulate military hardware. the magazine is functional. The rail is designed to be used with a tank, and goggles. even the shroud is modular so you only add what you need. This is truly a thing of beauty. I run demo on my scenario team, and use a Metadyne Havoc launcher undermount. While everyone else on my team uses egos, or geos, I've been stuck with a tm-7 as my best option. I cant wait to put this under my Christmas tree.

but it doesn't need to have all that stuff, it doesn't make it work any better, its just extra stuff for aesthetics. there is no purpose for the rail/stock etc other than to make it look like a real weapon.

the rail is to mount a sight. The sight is to see the target and where you're shot will land. The stock is to steady the marker for taking a shot. When you are able to fire a round with actual ballistics, like the FS, those things DO matter. They are not their to make it LOOK like a real firearm they are their to make it behave like a real firearm. Even the decision to put a single trigger on it instead of a double is for the express purpose of optimizing it for steady well-aimed kills. On a non FS capable marker that stuff would be just aesthetics, but on a marker capable of taking aimed shots 400 feet away, they are absolutely not just aesthetic and DO make the marker work better.

Where ever could I get the idea that they are similar? I mean, it isn't like they are remotely designed with the same thing in mind.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
