Unless you want something more concrete than what I put together

I know they are amateur, but I should be able to find out what Brimstone is shooting this weekend. There are usually one or two of them at the field lately.
Your NXL Europe list is great. I am just trying to verify it and add the rest the teams.

Updated, thanks. Know what anyone we don't have listed is shooting?

Wasn't sure if it got lost in the shuffle and missed. Looking forward to something more accurate as well.

I'd bet good money that diesel doesn't end up using the syxx unless they are forced to. Remember when AC Dallas was supposed to be using them? Then it turned into just one player, then magically none? They cannot consistently shoot brittle paint.

Also, all these guns don't hold a candle to the CS2, by far the best out of all of them, and I've shot all brands. Wouldnt shoot a macdev if I could help it. God bless those are so loud.

Didn’t they use those to win semi-pro or no?

The only mid-end marker I’ve ever used that consistently shot high-end paint was a Stealth/160R. I was thinking the same thing, so I was surprised to see they’re shooting the Syx but maybe if they won SP with them than they’re better guns than I’m giving them credit for.

Diesel shot Stealths and Vanquish's, I didn't see a single one of them using a Syx in the philly video i watched.

XSV Semi-Pro also all started with Syx's when they came out and now I see them all shooting vanquish's

FWIW Diesel had at least 2 players shooting the Syx at Cup. In my experience, with the proper setup, the Syx shoots brittle paint just fine.

Practices are one thing guys you need to look at the tournaments. Never the same thing

Ill bet we either see them breaking a lot of paint or just not using them all together

With the New SYX updates + a lot of them using the BOSS SYX's they will have no issue shooting any paint.

Yeah........this whole case ordeal has been a fiasco. I feel like they created so much work at the point of sale that could have been avoided by pushing the release and having **** ready to roll. It's stupid paying top dollar for a package and getting strung out like this. I feel for them in their current situation, this is just hindsight I guess.

Paying in March, receiving marker in December, and still not having a case and contents ticks me off.

What does it take to properly set one up?

That's good to hear. I didn't realize Diesel wasn't actually shooting them. It will be harder to hide that on the webcast next week. We'll see what they are shooting right away.

I admit, I'm not upset at all. Not even a little. I really like the gun, I am looking forward to the case and even though I didn't know what I was signing up for when I paid, I am excited to see my personal case and grips eventually. When I paid I didn't even know about the case. I don't think anybody did back then. I did hope for the gun itself a little faster but it is what it is.

They bit off a LOT making these guns and I love small custom houses making neat stuff. However, you have to realize when buying from the little guys that things take time and one of their biggest mistakes is often telling their customers too much too soon.

I think people will be very impressed with the way the syx shoots with the 1.5 updates. Mutiny had zero issues in california last weekend.

Not disagreeing with you, but I donít typically have any issues in moderate temperature climates with fresh paint either.

The real tests have always been mudfests, cold weather and extreme heat. Thatís when a few of my favorite guns flat out failed me.

True. This is why I loved my original Axe. It always worked. I could loan it out to the most incompetent people and it would stay shooting every time. I just tried out the new 1.5 for the first time this weekend and...

I couldn't believe there was a side to side difference we both could detect.

Iím surprised the 1.5ís shooting that much different from the Syx 1.0. Maybe that will result in more of the top level players running it this season.

For real? I havenít seen a ďheavyĒ high end marker in years. The beefiest was the Vanquish and itís so solid/well balanced that with a light loader and modern tank, I have zero issues.

I havenít heard anyone else complain about the weight on them.

Agreed. Iím not wild about the new Ripper/Twister/Ripple milling on markers these days. Adrenalineís maybe the best looking of the bunch, but thatís the only one Iíd even consider.

I talked to Rocky Knuth at World Cup and he was all about the SYX. He said with a couple tweaks it is right there. I was honestly so skeptical I never followed up. However, with the limited amount I have shot the new version (only about a case), after shooting it side by side with last year's model, I am becoming more of a believer.

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.
