Which do you play more often, and why? Which do you enjoy more?

I play open class. I've wanted to try stock class, but its such a big handicap that I wanna get my general skills down before I do that. Generally I just find pump a lot more fun

Open class because 12 grams suck in the winter.

Stock class is more fun by far, If you're capable of playing decently.

I wanted to try stock class, but since I'm usually the only pumper (MAYBE 1 or 2 more), open class is a better route for me. I'll be trying out a 50-round setup though.

I like the idea of stock class, but I like open class in practice. I love using a 13/3k and a pocket hopper on a sniper.

Pure stock class for me :rolleyes:

If it's a speedball style game or a bigger woodsball game, out comes the right feed phantom body and a revvy with my 45/45 come out. Plenty of air and I can carry pods if need be.

I have one of each but my open class pump gets FAR more use. Stockclass is ALOT of fun but being as i mostly play walk on and scenario games its really hard to compete against the semi auto guys with my PGP. At least using the Trracer i can auto trigger and sling a bit of paint in a pinch.

Stock class! I played open class but have since switched to stock class for every kind of game I play. All I have is a Sc Phantom actually.
I may get an open class pump again sometime, but I'm debating if I really need it...

this.. I still have an OC pump but it's my free gun to rent out to friends who are looking to try pump (or paintball in general) for the first time

I play stock class because it's way more fun to me, and I'm better at it then I am open class :ph34r:

Both have there merits.

I only play Open Class because that's the only style of pump marker I have lol.

I chose open class to try first because I'm a convert from electro's. I wanted something that would at least look and feel similar to my Intimidator. Not to mention I LOVE tinkering on my guns Posted Image so building a Sniper was a no brainer. My sig says what I'm building currently . I only plan on having one pump marker, so I'm going all in on it, every last upgrade I can get I will.

That's why I chose Open Class

I see open class as basically an inconvenient mech due to it being the same size, weight, etc.
It doesn't seem to have any advantage whatsoever over my automag.

However, stock class is a much lighter and tighter setup (even as MSC), a worthwhile tradeoff for the lack of firepower IMO.

Depends on the competition. I'll play open class when I'm up against legitimately good players. If I'm just doing random walk-on day, I use the single loading bolt action 12 gram gun. :blink:

stock class for pure fun
open class to be competitive
The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

It would take a bit more than that... that gun is totally decked out, but you wouldn't know it just looking at it.

It's got a Lapco bolt and fluted hammer, a prototype "Leprechaun" valve from y0da900, and gets 40 shots at 280 fps average with zero drop-off at 650 psi through that PPS Stabilizer.

I'd have to make a new valve body to put that gas system on a Retro 7.



But that said...I think I'd definitely run the Retro 7 as a walk on gun. I'd just take the top tube off and run it like this. They were designed with real pistol ergonomics in mind, so I wouldn't want to ruin that with a stock! :)

Open class against everyone on the field.

Stock class with the first time players and other Stock class players.

I don't know WHY they work, but they outperform anything on the market hands down...and they're MADE IN AMERICA.

This. If I'm going to have a hopper and a tank, might as well be a semi.

Stock class gives me a speed/stealth advantage, it just makes more sense to me. Unless you really just like the physical action of pumping a gun I don't see why not just use a mech and conserve ammo better, but have a little more firepower when needed.
