Lol, if a paying customer wants it then they take priority, I suppose.

Don’t get the new Shocker it’s trash. Get a Planet Eclipse GTEK 170r or Dye DSR.

A used m3+ is a pretty good option too.

Or M3s I forget that they are about the same price. The used M3+ I’ve seen are about $900...

I see, the shocker looked so good tho. I dont really wanna toss around a good chunk of change tho for somthing thats meh.

Kinda sad to see the market kinda shrank, not many options for new markers.

was gonna kinda try keep the buget low, maybe get the rize Czr or and Etha 2. i really do miss my poppets >.<. Could also just use what i have, but i havent gotten anything new and easy to find parts for since my Vapor lol

The Shocker Amp is the biggest POS in that segment.

I am not a fan either. My favorite non-dye budget pick would actually be a BL insight with a reflex core. Should be able to snag one cheap and I really like them. I am also a fan of the VIS in a VCOM body. The etha 2 is a solid pick too.

i havent shot Dye since my DM5 lol, would be kinda cool to go back go them. I think atm I have about $400 saved up.

The 170r looks pretty cool also, is it worth looking at the 160r? or skip on over?

Bob long always holds that special spot, but idk, never used anything really since gen4, i did want a g6r,but didnt keep playing long enough to pick one up.

Obviously, I'd love you to shoot a dye gun (especially the DSR), but I'm not sure if you'd want to stretch the budget. I had several G6Rs and they just didn't do it for me; I'd honestly rather shoot an ETEK5 over a G6R.

what? youd have me shoot a Dye gun? is this some sort of favoritism? &#x1f61b;

i could stretch the budget, i really shouldn't go over 1k, the lower the better. Whats even the latest? I remember selling a bunch of MosAir and evoke stuff when i was working at <NameWitheld> a few years ago, but just didn't seem worth it.

It depends on your preference... A DSR is going to have a softer shot and, when updated/ upgraded, is quite robust. The M3s/+ is a snappier shot, but I actually prefer it when maintaining high ROF because it simply doesn't move. The + manifold makes it a little smoother, but still not like the DSR. There is a DSR2 on the way with some nice updates (IMO), but the timeline is hard to pin down.

I just finished working on a gen4 for a customer. The leap in build quality and design they made from gen4 to gen6 is staggering - it looks and feels like two different manufacturers. The G6R is wonderful.

The 160R and 170R are rock solid, the former being the better deal unless you want mechanical capability.

Define "worth it."

The M3 and DSR are both excellent and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend either.

i see. I enjoy that versatility of mech frames on the 170r and Shocker, but im trying to think of when i would actually use them.

honestly i think what it is i just dont wanna roll up to the field and have my marker go down and not be able to do anything about it. I never had a problem with my quest, and if i did i had tons of parts, not so much now.

If my Vapor,renegade or quest goes down now, i have some Orings at best.

Ill look into the Dye markers in a bit, i can hold out for a bit but it wont be to buy a new dsr2, unless its sub1k

by "worth it" iirc we were told to push that wireless charging and communications with the mask stuff as it was new and special. I ended up selling more Geos and luxes Personally.

I don't do pricing, but the DSR2 shouldn't represent a major shift in either direction. I also think you'll like the versatility it'll offer.
