What was the worst purchase you have made in paintball?

Mine was my first gun. It was a used Azodin blitz with a pure energy tank and a magna drive hopper. I spent $160 + shipping and the gun was broken right off the bat, the tank's hydro was up, and u was just devastated (magna drive actually works fine to this day though). The guy who sold it to me wouldn't let me return it to him but he gave me $50. Lesson learned I guess.

DYE DAM, seriously, it worked just fine but I spent so much money buying everything to play with it, mags, mole vest to hold mags, huge tank with remote line (it was an air hog) just to find out I hated lugging that huge marker around. I did trade it for two great PE guns so I guess it wasnt a total loss.

Virtue spire -or- a lurker bolt for a axe I used to have....

I'd have to say the spire though just because the price. The lurker, meh, $30- who cares.

The bolt was broken, the C02 tank was 5 years past it's expiration date and the hopper was a scratched up piece of crap.
$150
$70 for a new HPA tank
$20 for a new hopper
$20 for parts and labour (bolt repair)
= $260 for a spider sonix

PPS Blazer. That marker was the biggest disappointment ever. Thing never worked, even after a trip back to Palmer. AKA Excal takes a very close second.

Ya a couple first timers that were playing that day brought those to the woodsball field and they basically bounced off trees and squirted a little paint.

My axe. Bought it used from a friend, and that thing had so many issues, and I'm an Empire Tech too. Put so much money into it too.

Im glad it went to a good home and he is still using it but no more mil sim stuff for me. The Ego and Geo were great but like a lot of us on here the grass is always greener and they both got traded.

I see so many people at the field with upgraded A5s and Spyders. These guys spend hundreds on these guns. I know A5s are workhorses but after playing with high end guns and pulling out the old tippy a while back I realized how crappy they shoot.

Got a free Tippmann 98 and bought an upgraded bolt and barrel. Worked a lot better than the rentals I had been using but once I started regularly playing scenarios I replaced all my gear within a couple months.

Rap4 T-68. Such a gimmick. First mag fed markers, but so impossible to use in paintball.

To top it off, it was just a spyder in a cool body.

Viewloader Quantam. Didn't realize it was constant feed, and ridiculously loud. Whoever made the executive decision to release this product is either just a jerk or has never played a game of paintball in their life.

I bought it off ebay for like $13, so not a big deal. I don't have the heart to put it back on ebay, I feel it would just be mean to sell it to someone else.

I try not to view any of my purchases as "bad"... They may have cost me money (a lot in some cases)... But at least I learned what works and what doesn't.

Some of my least favorites...

Tippmann Custom Pro E. I already had a 98C, buying essentially the same gun with an E trigger was something I could have lived without... Now I know better!

Q-loader. I was an early Qloader adopter. It was awesome when it worked, but a huge hassle to load and maintain and what's worse... It didn't always work... Moved on to a real hopper and now I know better!
