Paintball markers in the Philippines?

ey fellow paintballerz, i need your help here...i've been a paintball addict for about a few months now and i'm playing at xpp just renting guns...i think this sport will be a big time hobby for me and i also think its about time to buy myself a marker. The problem is, i already know what to buy but i don't know where exactly to buy it. I'm looking for spyder markers...for me i think its reliable, fast shooting, and a very nice looking gun for a considerable price range. If you guys know any paintball store or anyone who sells them, I would greatly appreciate it if you let me know...Btw, congrats to Global Gutz for winning the tourny last month! More power to Paintball!!!

N.M.E......my gf has a spyder flash lying around. its a red to gold fade with green mixed in....its also l.e.d it has been used only four times since we upgraded to dragon intimidators when it was less than a month old.

but if i were you i would seriously consider checking out the second hand hi-end markers that some players are selling here. they are all in pretty good shape and most of them are reasonably priced. since you think that you will be playing this sport for a long time to come saving the extra pesos for a hi-end marker would save you alot in the long run.

also...stay away from angelslayer....hes just looking to make a buck....hehehe...just kidding july...actually hes a pretty nice guy (once you get to know him) hehehehe another joke july...and hes my teammate.

but if a hi-end marker is too soon of a purchase getting a spyder marker is not a bad idea. i have owned several spyder markers before i went hi-end and i never complained abt them. in fact flipflops...the creator of the famous tadao board and xsf chip for the matrices came out with a very interesting upgrade for a spyder which i think you should really consider getting.

heres the link: http://www.xsfadvantage.com/product_info_spyderkit.html

Thanks for all your suggestions guys...

angelslayer, angel markers are just too expensive for me...I don't have that kind of money yet to buy a marker like that...but i'm interested on where to buy those spyder markers...I'll be waiting for your cell #.

spyder130, do you know anyone selling their 2nd hand high-end markers? what kind of markers would that be...
is your gf selling her spyder flash? if she is, i hope its going to be at a very reasonable price...hehe. btw, you and angelslayer are from what team?

jeffjavier, mark's store...would that be the one in promenade/promelade (????) bldg at wilson?

phil-dragun, i would love to have a high-end marker of course...but im kind of "budgeted" right now...

irok, i agree.........

Is there a pro shop in the philippines (Manila or Makati or anywhere near there) that sells high end markers? ive been planning to buy a good one but cant seem to find any. Gusto ko bumili ng Angel A4 Fly kaso nga lng sobra mahal dito mga Cn$1800+... tanong ko nga sa kapatid ko kung may nahanap cya pabili ako eh.. (i hope the airport would allow marker in the luggage.. baka sabihin terrorista.. lol.)

just joined this forum.. glad to hear may tourney din sa Pnas. Hmmm.. maybe i can make a team there pagbalik ko... hehe....

there is a pro shop dito but they dont sell hi end markers at the moment. but i heard that the owner of custom mechanix is planning on distributing them soon. you can pm the owner here on pbnation. his handle is BAUER

as for looking to get a better price on hi end markers here...better luck next time. everything here is expensive... because just having your marker shipped from the states you not only pay for the marker (in the u.s.) you also pay to ship it here, and whats worse is you hafta pay for the tax just to get the thing delivered to you. and im talking almost 25% tax on the total amount of the marker!!! your best bet is to buy in the U.S. or canada. you'll end up saving more money

here is the info on custom mechanix : (hope you dont mind mark im just helping out.)

Thanks for the info. ill give him a message after this.

Pag nagpabili ako sa kapatid ko di na kelangan i tax kaya no problem ako dun. Tutal pupunta naman dad ko dito eh in a few months, i suksuk na lng sa luggage.

Right now what i have is Tippman CUstom 98, yun lng kaya ko afford eh. Paid like Cn$200 (Php 8000 )for this... magkano usually mga low end markers dyan like my Tippman 98?

edit.

gano kalayo yung San Juan sa Makati or Manila? Mag papabili din ako ng compressed air tank 4000psi (with TC#) and pball gloves with back armor.

b2sai....you dont seem to understand. if you were to buy a paintball marker here...you will still pay for the tax as they will automatically add that to the base price of the marker once it gets here. lets say u want an angel a4fly...they dont have that here so the store here will hafta order from the states. thus, they would hafta ship it here....you are liable for the purchase price of the marker as well as any additional tax or whatnot that it incurred having to ship your marker from wherever they ordered it from. so basically in the end you will be paying for more. plus the additional price that the store will add onto the price of the marker. its your call.

Spyder, i just understood what you said on ur last post.

I was thinking that people who are on the wholesaler and import business usually get their raw products for at least half their original price on what they sell to the public. Which means that if product sells for $100 in the market, their raw price is around $50 or less when distributors buy it from the manufacturer... This is true for every business establishment anywhere around the globe.


This is the reason why im trying to look if Philippines has a better price on markers coz of the economic situation and affordability of the pball players there.


AngelSlayer- WHOA!! and laki ng tubo for tippy 98!!! 5 digits na!!!

thanks for the info guys!

b2sai, you're right about in common products being ex-im ported prices. But for a, unique, one of a kind, or in other words, not readily available in P.I, you must pay the price what the seller wants. I really doudt it that you can buy cheaper pb equipment in PI than where you at.
