I fired an emag briefly at the cup. I have to say its like no gun i have ever fired before. the trigger has the coolest feel ever to it. its almost a magnetic feeling trigger... very cool. next time i play with the jax warriors i should get them to let me borrow one of their guns

eMag trigger

Actually, the coolest thing about the eMag trigger, is if you put it on manual trigger and then turn the battery on. You get the rt kick with electronic assistance. Its amazing.

I've definitely got to try one out, they seem as though they can actually be a contender in the electro market as soon as AGD starts pumping more out.

Actually guys there's a really good review of the E-mag on paintballstar.com. I don't know if anyone's seen it yet.

Hmm, I have to try one of these so called "eMags" out.

Grand: So much for not using web based msg boards, huh?

I used my friends for a few games. I dislike the trigger in electro, it does not feel good to me. In Hybrid mode it was sweet, awesome pull and had the bounce of an RT. It was a sweet gun, but has some room for improvement.

What I seem to dislike about them is the battery pack. Maybe more of a contoured grip would be better for it. Something a little 'ergonomic' that was comfortable in your hand.

I like it that way, makes it look kinda like a Thompson SMG

Actually when i held one at I&I the battery pack wasn't too bad. It wasn't too much of a bother. And i thought it was gonna be very light, but it was actually heavier than my angel.

one day, a guy with an Emag broke his hopper and lost all of his paint, so i have him some and he offered me if i wanted to use his gun for the rest of theday. HOW COULD I REFUSE! so we traded guns for the day, his Emag and my Rt. the first thing i've noticed is that it's alot heavier tahn my gun, probably because he had a bigger tank, but it had to be heavier cause of the batteries. when i started to play again, i observed that u couldn't short stroke with it at all! and the trigger pull is incredably short. It also had a crisp feeling to it which was great!

I have shot one briefly, and loved it. I didn't think it was to much heavier. The one thing I didn't like was the LCD or LED screen (which ever it is). It seemed to cheap. I think it would be awsome if they got one like the Angel LCD. If they did, I would defently buy it over an angel.

I actually prefer the way the eMags led is setup over the angels LCD. of course Its just my opinion and its slightly biased.

Well the reason for the LED is that you can make any changes to your display and you dont need a new LED. If you make a change to the LCD display and it hasnt been burned in when it was make you are hosed on making a display change and you have backward compatibility problems. Or you hav eto replace the LCD's or chagre for them.

And really how often do you really look at the damn screen when playing ??

Rob, have you moved over here from AO? I've seen you on PBD a few times but wasn't sure if you had found a new home...

Always trying to keep Mag users informed...

The E-mag,

My first impressions playign with it at skyball.

The gun rocked, as far as I know we only blew one ball in it all weekend, and taht because our paintball got over anchous witht he triger .

I finaly got to take it out for a test run the final game, the gun is impressive, fast trigure, no learning curve, and a tight set up.

I was so impressed with the E-mag, that I have decided to get rid of my trusty angel and I am going ot pick up another E-mag .

Any ways, I will have more as I get to play with it more.

Bartman
