The biggest names in the game already have mech markers.

I am hoping for something new from Empire (The Resurrection is a bit long in the tooth), something from DYE, something new from Azodin, and something new mech from any of the other manufacturers.

A mech trigger frame for the Luxe X would be cool.

The market just is not that big. Empire would be way better served with a vanquish re-design

The industry should find a way to attract the people that were into paintball during its early 2000s heyday. Most of those guys like myself who grew up during that era are now well into our 30-40s, have expendable income, and are willing to shell it out on an addicting hobby.

The mechanical scene brought me back but I know it's a very niche market. Maybe if some of the marketing moved away from speedball to classic woodsball we'd see some old faces return. I know at my local field SC Village that demographic is slowly returning.

Ive actually been playing around with this idea on and off over the last 2 months. Ive got it down to a replacement manifold/switch with removing the boards from the frame. kinda a legacy mods variant.

I would like to see new markers from Dye like a newer DSR2. Empire, I want to see a new revamped Resurrection and a new Mini GS. Tippmann, still waiting to see what's changed with the Raider, not to mention a revamped A5 and 98.
Also I would like to see some classic old school markers make a comeback, limited in numbers is okay, just improvements that make it easier to use.

You know they're made by Planet Eclipse (UK), and that's where they originate?

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
