Played my first game of rec ball today

Absolutely loved it and am now looking to get into buying a marker, hopper, tank.

I had a lot of people tell me the Emek is the best bang for your buck and to buy a used Spire 2/3 with a carbon fiber insert and that's a really good starter. What is your best opinions for all? Thank you guys!

And if anyone is local in Chandler/Scottsdale AZ and would like to go out next week/end hit me up!

you can't go wrong with an emek. If you want to shoot faster, check out the etek or used planet eclipse markers.

Definitely second above post about Eteks. They are absolute beasts. I have had mine for almost a year and a half. You want a dedicated work horse, look at the ETEK 5. I also really recommend the original GTEK marker for a newer players also. They are easier to maintain in my opinion than the GTEK 160R.

Do yourself a favor and buy the emek. Hands down best marker for all around paintball. Sure its not electric but most folks these days prefer to live behind their gun vs taking the time to build solid fundamental skills. An Emek will hold its own anywhere. Its probably my go to for walk on days and for tourney drills. Snap shooting, run and gun, and lane drills are are within the Emeks repertoire albeit a little slower. I have a ton of markers and the little Emek always makes me smile when I use it.
Still rocking the original Dye arm pads and knee pads. They like new.... only 18 years old and used to hell.
