Krush <3!

I honestly think that this marker would be a complete field dominant marker if it was priced just a little lower, its going to have HARD competition being at the same price point of the Axe, the Etek and slightly under the MacDev mid range marker.

Put it into the same price bracket as the Mini and the Etha, Then you will take off.

Edit: From speculation of the price point being within 450$ ish
the lower tippmann can go. the better this thing will fly.

hey krush, you got some dimpled paint there :P

i am excited to see where this goes, and i will be picking one up if not for the performance but for the pure historical value of it. people have been asking for a tippmann speedball marker for YEARS

Agreed. I think the foregrip is still longer than it need to be.

I think the foregrip is still longer than it need to be.

Considering that he is holding with his thumb along the side of the marker, the grip looks appropriate.

I can't wait for it to come out. It's basically a modern reincarnation of the E-mag in my eyes: the Flex-Valve is very similar in operation and performance to the AGD AIR valve, the electronics are triggered via Hall Effect, there is a switch to have mechanical AND electronic operation (which hasn't been done since the X-mag, not counting the X-7 Phenom of course), and it looks like field-strip is done out of the rear.

Add a lighter body, thinner grip, internal gas-line, eyes, and standard clamping feed and you have a winner in my book, would be even better if it was cocker threaded...
Now, if only Tippmann will come out with a Level10 kit for the Flex-Valve :D

I still want a E-mag lower for my 2K9 Micromag and my CCM T2 back, so much it hurts me inside, but I think a marker like the Crossover will stave the desire by providing me with an e-mag like tournament style gun, especially since I've never kept any kind of tournament style gun simply because I never used one I particularly cared for (other than my T2).

My list of markers to own:
-E-Mag/X-mag/lowers of either
-Palmer's PMI-LB Stroker
-CCM T2 (again, hated to see that one go)
+Tippmann Crossover

Inertia in the dashboard. Look at them dimples. I hate that paint. Just saying though. I think Tippman did a good job from what I see.
