underrated paintball markers?

What are some markers and marker brands that you believe are under-rated?

Since getting back to playing about a year before Covid. I find myself having the most amount of fun playing with the PM5 or jumping in with the rentals with a 98c.

What are some markers that you believe are underrated and deserves a shout out?

Guys, please be nice to Canadians. They can't tell time because they believe in celsius.

More in line with the tippmann are Brass Eagle markers. Some, not all, were quite well made and similarly cheap. My first semi-auto was the Stingray II and it never let me down. Though, I did eventually move on to their better offerings and eventually other manufacturers. The BE markers always allowed me to have fun and sling some paint. They offer no advantages over a 98c, but they will do the job. Theyve been gone so long people dont even recognize them anymore when you show up with then.

Viewloader has always been my favorite under-rated marker series.
Essentially just a continuation of the Brass Eagle and cheap JT markers at first, Viewloader actually moved into its own with the Genesis Surge, Maxis Pro, and VL Charger.
I've had several Viewloaders for over a decade and they still hold air and sling paint at 275 +/-10 every time I take them out.

The PMI Piranhas are another simple stacked-tube blowback that I never really had issues with. Basically just a Spyder-clone, some of them had beavertails, X-chambers, regulators, or drop-forwards, and they'd run CO2 or HPA just fine.
They were super tough, too. Bash them around in your gearbag week to week and they would still air right up with no problems.

GOG Enmey. Eveybody talks about the Emek now when the Enmey is $100 cheaper. Just put a better barrel on it'll shoot better than the Emek for cheaper. It already has the potential to get higher BPS than the stock Emek. Emek beats it on efficiency though.

Gotta agree on the Piranha. The best spyder clone of the bunch is the Inferno line from Arrow Precision.

The two best markers I have ever owned no one at my field had heard of, 2013 JT Impulse and 2013 Bob Long victus. They (when tuned right) shoot LASERS.

Tippmann Crossover XVR. I never see anyone talk about it, and it's not a bad marker at all. I love the option to go mechanical with the flip of a switch.

Smart Parts Ion back in the day, I dont know if they still hold up today. But it truly opened up the mid-end market and worked well enough compared to my DM6 at the time.

Macdev Droid- bought it brand new in like 09 and it was my favorite marker I think I have ever had. But again I don't know if any of them have held up against their age

Ions are still being used and going strong even if the boards are starting no longer work r/t the armatures going bad. Just finished this build below and used it a few weekends ago.... shot awesome (even if the only "Ion" thing on it is the pressure gauge lol). Macdev is still pumping out great stuff as well.

PMI USP. Was marketed as more of a toy than a serious marker (it was sold in a plastic clamshell case), but for the $50 or so it cost it was a super solid pistol. Admittedly the CO2 changer and tube magazine did leave a lot to be desired.

I second that. Ions. Specifically with a vp Scythe, QEV, Tech T bolt, and aka winder. I had one that shot just as smooth as my dm3’s back in the day.

Gog Enmey. Since the emek it got kind of forgotten. Cheap, reliable, super easy to maintain and only one adjustment screw for your velocity --> no dwell/springs, timing or whatsoever a perfect everyday shooter and backup gun.

Absolutely the smart parts ion. High end performance at that price point opened the game up to a lot of new players.
