Tough decision

Hey we just picked up a new kid on our team. He has a lot of skill but is seriously lacking in equipment. I know it doesn't matter, but he will need the help. He has narrowed it down to an impulse and a vert feed cocker. He wants a really good trigger, but he likes the autcocker for the accuracy and he wants to be able to upgrade it. He is having a tough time and i say impuls but i want your opinions. please dont flame.

cocker if you guys know how to fix em no problem. teach the young grasshopper how to use a cocker, just sit down every once in a while with em and show em the same stuff until he can do all the basic stuff that you should know with cockers, and go from there. that's my theory.

the "accuracy"?

Have him play with or try both. You're talking about 2 comepletely different triggers. Whichever gun he's more comfortable with using, then that's the gun for him to use.

he likes the feel of a cocker but he wants to be able to fire pretty fast. The cocker fires relatively fast but the imp is faster

Why not point him towards a Cocker - he likes the cockers accuracy - and since YOU own one, you'd be able to help out if he has problems with it. He wants ROF - have him look at Hinge frames.

I let him play with my Bm and He absolutely loved it! He wants to get a cocker, but he got a big boost of money, and now he is deciding between the Gen x 3 and the STO. Are there any other cockers for the same price (about 600) that you would recommend?

Hey if he is willing to spend 600 for an STO, why not make him wait alittle longer and spend 700 or 800 on a P&P cold fusion. Those cockers are nice, and he doesn't need to make any upgrades to it. All he would have to do is probably get a RASE grip.

there is no difference performance wise between an STO or a BM and a cold fusion, the cold fusion is a sto with fancy milling and anno, thats it

i would go with a sto, you can get one for like 500 and still have cash left for a good air tank

well if he is financially challenged, I'd say get an Impulse. They come great out of box and run extremely well on CO2. The Maxflow reg provides awsome consistancy. The only fault i can see with the Impulse is the stock trigger is a little ****ty.

i say you get over to the impulse forum and check out the toxic imp, its nice, and theres like 10 other custom impulses out there, but i really like the looks of the toxic, e-paintballoutlet.com is also comming out with some custom impulses that are pretty cheap

Get the gen x3 it is the best value cocker out right now. Great trigger and nice reg and great mill job and metal frame and lots of other crap. It kicks the sto up and back down the street.

you said he likes upgrading so get a stock 2k2 vert cocker then he can upgrade till he sees fit. he should probably get a cheap screw in nitro if he doesnt already have one.
