I'm looking for a back-up marker for 500-700 to back up my EGO 11...

I have an Axe, need a back up for my axe and EGO actually :)

I am looking at the coming MacDev Drone, but what else is out there?

Hate the Etek 3...so screw that one, now help :)

I would get a pm8 and save money,dm9 are nice too. Do you really need a ego 11 though, much less a backup for an ego or a backup for that gun. I like how you posted in budget baller becuase TBH that is about as far away form a budget baller as you can get.

Honestly, if I were you, I wouldn't buy another gun. The axe is a decent enough back up as is. The new macdev would be a great gun though, if you do really want a backup, go with that.


You could also sell the axe and trade up for a luxe or nt?
Yeah, I have no sig, deal with it...

Need back-up in case tourny gun (EGO) goes down....

Want a "fun gun" that i have never had before, Vanguard Creed for example...something like that

I have the money, i use it how i want, i set aside cash from my paychecks for paintball, and they have piled up, so it's time to use the cash

Get a pump


NOW THIS, i have highly considered....a CCM 6.5 was gonna happen, but i used my buddies, and i just don't like the pump scene....

I like how you posted in budget baller

The best backup is to keep your primary marker in working condition.

the axe is a great back up for your ego 11. your really shouldn't need another gun as a back up unless you treat your guns like crap. but if your looking for a fun gun to shoot, i would look at autocockers, pumps, e-mags, etc; guns that are different from todays standard. buying an NT as a fun gun wont be fun after the 3rd time you use it cause its just like every other high end out there.

Wait: If in the event you refuse to take care of your Ego and it goes down, you use your Axe.

If you axe goes down to, then you just need to take care of your shit more LOL

I don't believe a 3rd marker would solve anything.

Hahahahahaha you just made my day,

But on a serious note, Do oyu have A backup loader,Tank aswell? and do you have a woodsball gun?
Because i would reccomend an FX with a tank and a Loader or you can easily get a Tiberious 9 for youre budget. also if you want a fun gun then try a 20 dollar brass eagle pump...the are fun...dont look at me like that

Viagra, lubricant, and pornographic movies? If that package arrived at my house, I'd be calling a babysitter and making reservations at the Marriott

the best back up is a well maintained primary gun, just use the money on other things, like up keep on your gun, tournaments, paint, practice and other stuff like that.

if you lubes tank barrel and hopper you can shoot gooder

You can get an Alien Invasion for that amount. It has a very nice shot quality, good efficiency, smooth (this is coming from a dye guy), pretty quiet cause of the shit ton of porting on the barrel. Not to mention it is a stacked tub poppet so it'll be pretty hard to break it. its a high end and a mid end price, best back up for that amount.
