YES,I did played it!!! My uncle's backyard is really a mini field and he got some 50cal guns so we played with them b4
Ok,so probably lot of people heard of 50 cal before so I am just going to give out MY opinion on it.
Really 50 cal is still pretty new to the paintball market,I think it came out like 2-3 years(If not earlier...) to "help" grow the sport because the 50 cal paintball is much smaller than 68 making less "pain" when getting hit and also one of the main selling point:Cheap.Like Chris lasoya said in the video below,it is about 30% cheaper than 68(For a case).Which I guess encouraged new players or at least younger player to come out and play more.BUT the main cons are the paint is more in-accurate making less chance of hitting(Say,the field that day is windy) and more chance of bounces(If you shoot over the field and try to hit a guy,the paintball already dont have enough speed or force to make a impact and make a mark AND if the 50 cal paint was to impact,the mark is MUCH smaller than 68's so making cheaters much easier to cheat when hit(Yeah sure,there are refs but it doesn't help much).
Ok,so here's the PROS and CONS of 50 cal that I think
Loaders and pods hold more paint,making non-stop shooting
For younger players
Need to adapt,both players(Experinced with 68) and equipment(Need to make new guns(Excluding PE 50 kit but not everyone is shooting PE),new loaders,new paint size,new barrel.ETC...
So thats it!!!Feel free to make your opinions!
