Posts I've Made
27 March 2013 - 08:15 PMI realize this is an old post, I just saw this and had to say something. The spire IS force fed. It is activated with a G FORCE sensor, which measures acceleration (ie recoil). Agitated hoppers are gravity fed hoppers that just have a prop inside the hopper that spins to AGITATE the paint.
and the motor spins the prop constantly if you run out of paint.
I kind of like that feature. It's a notification that you need to reload. In the heat of things, sometimes I'm not paying attention enough & it serves as a good reminder. I suppose I can see how it would be annoying to some people though.
Being sound activated technically classifies the Spire as an agitated hopper though, does it not? If so, I couldn't justify paying $185 for something not truly forcefed. It really isn't much more low profile than the Rotor either. I looked at the specs.
19 January 2013 - 03:46 PMI would love to buy a dragon g6r because I love the g6r I have now and the dragon one is amazing. Maybe the vapor, luxe, or DM12 if I wanted to try a new speedball gun. Probably a CCM t2 or a cci phantom for a pump gun if i wanted that. If i wanted a scenario marker, definitely the DAM.
If I had to choose one right now that I would want to get, I would want to get a machine vapor off of pbnation.
16 January 2013 - 11:57 PMi might look into the luxe i just remember playing a tournament in chilly weather. most teams shot evil as it was fpo. and two seperate luxes were literally oozing out paint couldnt get an actual ball to come out.
With it being cold and all, I wouldn't judge they're performance on that tournament. They're have been quite a few professional tournaments that have been won by teams playing with only luxes. and like i said, try to find a way to shoot them before you buy them, maybe by asking a team member or just some other random paintballer if you could take a few shots with they're gun. I did that with my g6r and fell in love with it, but thats my personal preference.
16 January 2013 - 11:36 PMI was wondering which of these you thought was the best im looking at getting a new highend and price is not a big factor. The field nearest me shoots demons and ive become a fan of the 2013's however i was wondering how they stacked up against the dm13 and geo. Thanks in advance.
Well the dm13 is pretty much a dm12 with some minor cosmetic changes, which is still very similar to the dm11 and dm10. in other words, if you shot those, you should have a pretty good idea of how they work.
well i will start by saying i have not personally shot these newest versions but her is my opinion anyway from looking at review and such.
I have heard of the previous versions having certain problems and unnecessary malfunctions here and there from a friend of mine who is sponsored by them. they aren't known to be as reliable or high quality as the dm or the geo. for this reason, i would not choose the demon but that is my personal opinion not having shot these markers.
DM Vs. Geo:
The DM will definitely have a softer shot, although not by much. The geo will have an only slightly harder shot.
For the general design, I like the geo better because it is less complicated. less complicated guns means easier maintenance and more reliable. i also dont like how the dm can let in a little extra dirt since it has the window but thats nit picking and unimportant.
theyre efficiency is very similar so dont worry about that. dm gets only fraction of a pod less than geo, although the geo might even be more efficient with some tuning.
i have always loved the grips for dye guns more than any other brand so for feel in the hand, i would give it to the dm.
for weight theyre is only a difference of a couple onces, the dm being heavier, but thats not really a factor
For packaging, I prefer the Geo, Planet Eclipse probably has my favorite packing of all the paintball companies.
Go for the DM13 if you want a slightly higher quality shot and you like to tinker with your guns to make them perfect, you wont be disappointed.
Go for the Geo 3 if you want a reliable high end gun with high end packaging with a slightly worse feel in the hands, go for the Geo.
I personally am a Dye fan and would probably go with the DM because I love tinkering with my guns and experimenting but if I didn't tinker with my guns, I would probably go with the Geo.
Choose whichever fits your needs best, and most importantly, you should try to buy the gun from a local field where they might let you try it out before you buy, even if they only allow a few shots in the range. also you may want to consider a luxe, they are probably the best feeling gun out there, I would put them in a category of what a dm would be like if they had an even more luxurious model. a couple problems here and there making it slightly less reliable but it has an amazing shot and feel.
09 January 2013 - 03:58 PMSome nice masks:
Dye I4-Great, but is extremely small so it might not fit people with larger faces- $110
Sly Profit- Nice mask that has a lot of padding and foam, as well as double straps for a more secure fit. Harder to hear in than others, however- %100
Empire EFlex- My personal favorite mask; it has nice foam as well as a very flexible bottom to allow for more bounces.
Vforce Grillz- Great mask, very inexpensive, and although the lenses aren't thermal like the others, still prevents fogging by an antifog baked into the lenses.- $80-90.
I would suggest trying them on first, and see what you like.
Now for the loader
I would either go straight to the high end loaders such as the Dye Rotor, Virtue Spire, Empire Z2, and Pinokio, even used if you're on a budget would be great. If you cannot afford it or you are just looking at new, look at the Empire Scion or the Spyder Fasta. Do not skimp and try to get by by getting a cheap loader, because in the future when you buy a better gun, you'd just need to buy a loader to keep up.
For a tank, honestly, you could go with most any brands of Carbon Fiber HPA tanks out there, Gorilla Air, Ninja, Crossfire, or Draxxus. But the best would be the Ninja tanks simply because of the regulator that comes on it is the best one out there. The carbon fiber tank itself is all the same, the regulator makes the actual difference. Always go with compressed air.
Now by the time you bought all this, you'd be set back by around 350-370 bucks, leaving you with around 230-250 for a marker.
For a marker, go with the GoG eXTCy, I'll leave others to explain why this is the best choice for a first marker. After that, for gear, elbow pads and kneepads are the first to get. Then some good paintball pants. Afterwards, gloves; they help out much more than you think they do. After all that, you can go ahead and get yourself a nice jersey, because the jersey really is all just for show, and to make yourself more or less unique out on the field.
But before you go buying all this gear, just go out and play a few times. You'll know what you need then.
Thank you very much dude you helped me so much!
Would you guys recomend trying to buy a loader and a tank together on ebay or kijiji or something? because im trying to save as much money as i can so i can get a good marker.
If you can find a good deal, sure. Occasionally you can find good deals here and there. Just make sure the hydro date on the bottle is recent enough. Bottles need to be tested every 5 years. Bottles have the date they were made on them so if it has been 5 years since then, or since the most recent hydro date on the tank, then expect to add another $30 or $40.
A good place to get a tank for cheaper is here: http://shop.swapmytank.com/ . They sell used tanks that they have hydro tested for good prices.
