As one of two people who like the TFX, Iím looking forward to seeing the new version. Iím also looking forward to finding out more about the private milled CS2 pro they are calling project G.
Am I the other person that likes the TFX 2? Lol

Are you sure they are coming out with a new one? That would be cool!

I donít think the TFX is a bad loader per day, I just canít think of anything it does better than say the spire. When they stopped stocking replacement parts I completely lost interest.

^But the TFX 2 comes with everything that the Spires don’t: Speedfeed, Ramp(s), and rechargeable battery (NCharge). Plus it’s force feeding where Spires are not.

Side note: My M3 went down last game today. I hope it’s just the Battery but I don’t recall seeing any low battery alert or anything and it was over 60% this morning - you think it would last a whole day of play. I hope it’s something easy...

I wouldn’t be surprised at all if HK is updating the TFX. Look at the new KLR mask being used by Dynasty at Cup.

As much as I love the Rotor, I’d like to see a reboot for it. I’ve got some ideas for it but it cost lots of $$$ yo.

Adrenaline Luxe just won the 10 man at Cup, congratulations to them! Mechanical machine guns.

Dynasty looks to be going all the way in winning World Cup. They just have to get past a dangerous X-Factor -but XF’s roster has been hit hard with Archie being hurt and no Colt Roberts. Dynasty has had almost zero penalties called on them? That’s huge. And the Force paintball gun looks to be running flawlessly.

I’m pretty sure that it was that I just ran the Battery down too much.

It’s working fine now. When I first plugged it in to charge the Battery level was at ~30%.

Iím not a big fan of the battery packs in the Dye high ends. Partly why I lean towards the DSR or something that uses AA batteries.

I suppose from a value perspective there is some merit to the TFX. I just felt it was never that great all around. From a feed performance perspective, I would personally rather use an R2 and from a useability standpoint, I think the Spires are hard to beat. Add in the parts availability/support piece and they are a no-go right now for me.

I have seen a few situations with bad batteries on the M3 although I suppose anytime you are dealing with rechargeable lithos, that is a possibility. One thing I considered is that from a longevity perspective, once they quit making those batteries or switch to a different one you are going to have a shelf life on your gun which I've gone through with Angels in the past. I think I would definitely keep a couple on hand if I still owned one of these markers.

I don’t really mind the rechargeable Battery but that is certainly a good concern for the Future!

To be fair it was user error that I was dumb and didn’t check/charge my Battery when I should have. I know it had been a while since charging but thought it would make it through the day - I know better now lol. And now I know that I might need to watch it closer lol.

Is your battery capable of charging to 100%?

Hopefully Dye is able to remedy the battery supply issue they seem to be having.

Will the old M3s manifold fit on the M3+? If so, I think I'm going to obtain one of the old ones. BTW, I found a battery on Amazon, the vendor had one left yesterday.

Just as I was working to bring some stability to the arsenal ... I went and picked up a few more CS2s ... Soooooooo ... tough decisions coming on which markers go bye-bye ... This on top of 5 or 6 markers I still need to sell. Oh well ... These CS2s will be worth it once done.

By chance was one of those CS2’s an HK Invader?
