Oh man, only PE players would need a special trigger made for Mech Markers. For the new players out there, the stock triggers work and do what they are intended to do. Mech isnt suppose to be easy like a Speedball Marker....don't worry, your fingers will get use to it.

Deadlywind did these for the mag back in the day, right?
Really cool that older concepts that never made it to production (as far as I am aware) are coming back fresh for mechanical play.

I don't think the Automag version ever went into full production.

Great. Here we go with the RoF wars again. Mech paintball will be back to where we are now with electronic guns. This goes against what the mech movement is supposed to be about.

Having actually pulled the trigger on the hAIR mag, and knowing Colin, you guys are in for a treat. This is going to be as nice as Electro.

Murder time. Looking forward to it.

Yes. With good reason. 10 man mech was restarted to go back to the time before electros and force feed hoppers. If we are going to make mechs shoot 15 bps then what was the point??

If you don’t like that then tough taters.


Go play xball if you want more RoF.

If you don't like people playing how they want, then start your own mech league just so you can tell others what to do. Otherwise... tough taters.

I'm liking the ROF wars... why not, it was the same way back in the day, who could get their equipment operating the best and who practiced the most.

It also opens up the aftermarket to companies looking to build a new product.

Fast mech guns are fun and they are still mech without the ability to shoot a steady 10bps from the hip one handed which is the case with electros in ramp.

100% agreed.

again 100% agreed. While the mech speed wars is a thing, you still cant hold lanes like you can with an electro... no matter how good you are.

It did not, but their original hAir trigger was able to be fully pulled and cycled using a standard drinking straw without bending it.

Bleh, comments like that are what encourages this bull****. Speed wars has killed formats time and time again and I dont understand why. If you cant win points at 7-8bps, you arent going to win them shooting 10-13 bps with a mech. It ruins what the game is supposed to be. Mark my words, incremental changes like this will continue to happen until anyone can walk off the street and shoot 12bps with a mech and then suddenly, the idea of a format based on teamwork, aggression, and strategy will once again become a battle of who can shoot the most lanes for the longest.


Speed wars is stupid. If you want high ROF, go play NXL or recball. High ROF caused by speed wars had trickle down changes where suddenly again everyone at local fields is all shooting insane ROF for no reason with basic, cheap guns and ruin new player entries into the sport.

You’re still wrong. Price and link to pre-order were on Facebook.
PBN rules prevent the link being posted.

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.
