I'd buy the pump. You can actually convert a pump back to a gun that yuo can use for woodsball. And in all seriousness, your speedball gun is probably the best woodsball gun. If you want some information on pump, check out the link in my sig.

I'd get a pump. Woodsball guns are heavy and bulky. Its not much fun playing with a heavy and bulky gun. However, playing with a pump is very fun.

You can use your speed ball gun for woods, and you can use a pump for both as well. I'd go pump.

You should definitely try it first. Seriously, read that link in my thread. It outlines a lot of important stuff.

Borrow a friends, or see if you can rent one from your local pro-shop.

Depends on the shop, the amount of time you`re renting it for...

Define "woods ball gun". Some woods ball gun are light, efficient and they shoot fast. In example, the dye nt11camo etc. thats considerd a woodsball gun is it not? Not trying to sound douchey but not all "woodsball guns" are heavy and bulky
Hey I play paintball. I like it.

try both. its going to take some time to get used to either one and i think you might find it fun playing with one or the other.

i have been trying out the pump for the past few months and its been fun. it took some time, but im enjoying it.

this year i would like to play with the t9, in pistol or all decked out.

I was wondering if i should buy a pump gun or a woodsball gun?I already have a speedball gun and i want to try something new.Just personally what would you choose and what gun would you recommend?

I'll be back to this thread after school. Short answer? Woodsball gun. I'll explain why later.

I wouldn't say it's not fun. There is something to be said for carrying a big piece of metal out into the woods and playing "soldier."

Personally I'm not into that, but a lot of people are.

As someone who plays almost exclusively woodsball, let me assure you that the best woodsball guns are speedball guns. Don't waste money on something that's almost guaranteed (with a few exceptions) to be bigger, heavier, louder, and slower than the gun you have now.

The only reasons I'd ever suggest a "woodsball" gun to anyone is if:

1. They're really into the aesthetics of one,
2. They want to play with FSRs, or
3. They want to play pistol

Otherwise, go pump.

Go pump, exactly what Redthirst said. The best woodsball markers are speedball markers, i only play woodsball and once i went to the darkside i couldn't turn back!

On a sniper at least, good luck converting a Phantom to a mech without lots of custom work.

To answer the OP's question, I own pumps, mechs, and electro's.

Playing with a woodsball gun is a blast and can be fun but it's not really that much different that an electro.

Everyone should have a pump in their bag.

Why choose? Get either the sl-68 II or the Trracer. Both are great pumps and fits right in with the woodsball crowd.
