Everyone saying speed doesn't matter I can see their point but I also see why it is as a selling point. BLAST was one of the first big tournament level manufactures to produce a scenario/Mil-sim marketed gun the M-Tac. As a result BLAST has built a pretty big following in that market the fact all of the guns are made in the U.S.A. also helps. As posters before me have pointed out a lot of scenario games are uncapped semi so yes the speed matters to those players. When you're spending that much money on a marker you're paying for ergonomics, the feel, efficiency and a feature/features that sets the gun apart from others no matter how small or "useless" too you that feature is.

The speed is one thing this marker has over the competition just because that feature is useless too you doesn't make it useless for others. Seeing everything from the tournament view of paintball is not always the right way if you do you'll miss some amazing products from good companies.

My 2 cents I'll be ordering one soon my first new gun in a long time.

Speed is actually going to prove useful with this gun. The first couple of shots (like snap shooting) are much faster than other guns I've ever shot.

I really suggest shooting one and comparing it to your current marker.

Why is there so much hate towards this new gun!? Bob proved his efficiency numbers in the video (yes I know it wasn't up right away), and it didn't look like he was chopping paint at all in the video ripping through 10 pods. What more do you kids need to see to be convinced that this is a top notch product? Shoot the gun first and then make your judgements on it - Looks better than any other gun to hit the market this year!

Shooters who have a V-com, the V-Com is still smother than this gun so you are still good if your looking for the ultra smooth shot.

Yes I agree Tim I haven't shot the gun, held it, or even seen it in the flesh. Speed does matter since we've seen BPS caps in all of the leagues marketing and development has turned from how fast can it shoot to ergonomics, the weight, tool-less disassembly are 3 I can think of. While all of these have benefited all players greatly leaving speed as an afterthought is not good for us, the consumers. When I spend this much money on a gun I want as much as I can get from it also who knows what other discoveries and ideas the engineers will find and have while trying too make the gun shoot faster. Leaving any part/feature of paintball guns in the dust isn't a good for players.

What's almost as awesome to see is how consistently the spire keeps up with 30bps without missing a beat... try that with a rotor

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.
