Welcome to techpb.


Just curious in why you chose to start off with such a high end? (dont read this negatively, I really am curious just didnt know how to word it better). Most newer players dont even know what a vapor is lol.

I started off with a vice because I knew I loved the sport after the first day of playing. So I skipped a few progression steps as well (granted that stupid vice did not work).

Have fun with the forums, there are a lot of good people on here.

I chose the vapor because... Ummmm..... Well .. I just literally fell in love with it : ) I didn't want a poppet, ego, axe, ect... I know there are a lot of guns less than half the price that a lot of people would argue till death on there behalf. However I just wanted a vapor.. It took a solid month of cruising these forums before making my desicion .. I'm not completely new.. I used to have a tipman A-5.. Lol!! Huge difference..!!

Huge difference pfft none sense Posted Image

Enjoy your vapor, Ive been kind of curious about them. Lately Ive fallen in love with the luxe because it fits all my criteria (im quite picky on ergos) the ergos on the vapor just do not seem like they would fit my hands (specifically grips and the spacing between the guard and the reg). Looks like a solid performer and its great to see a new company release such a solid marker in one shot. I hope to see a lot more from this company.

I think the vapor comes standard with the rake trigger you see.. When I try to walk the trigger, this feels odd.. I do like the curvy look to it : ) there is another standard looking trigger that came with it that I will soon be swapping with..

Its my first high-end gun that shoots and feels nothing like I have ever shot or owned before... Compared to my "old Walmart purchased tipman A-5" .. It's a whole different beast!!!

That's what I would assume based from the obvious curve difference between the two triggers.

Nice gun, but it's got me curious as to what the rest of your set-up is.
Right now, I just can't shake the image of the Vapor with a shake-and-shoot and a 48/3000 being shot by a guy with a $20 JT mask.

Well..... So far I got a pair of all black empire pants .. I think they were 139.00 .. Really padded and comfy, and a valken jersey black with a little bit of white and gold splash.. A black spire hopper, some PE elbow pads and gloves.... And black dye I4s with amber lens with gold dytanium backup which I wear with two black bandanas protecting my forhead .. I also have a pretty sweet army camo baggy sweater that I just got that looks cool... And that's pretty much all my starter stuff..

4 kids and this??? Good luck getting any time to use it, It would kill me having such a killer setup and not being able to play with it.

Not at the moment, lol. More power to you bro. I am 27 myself with my first child on the way. Very excited. Just was curious who was financing all that gear since as much as I would like to, and could afford to, every paintball purchase I make results in looks, comments, and generally angry behavior from my wife lol. Even if I was single though I wouldn't drop that much on a marker and gear. Maybe one day, but I am just getting back into the sport and I certainly can't play well enough where the investment would benefit me at all

I just generally see young kids get the best gear because their parents don't know what it is, and don't care. They just know their kid wants it, and if they can afford it they figure get the kid what he wants, lol. Working adults that can afford the same gear legitimately generally don't drop that much money because they had to work for the dollars that pay for the gear, so they realize the value. Anyhow, welcome!

There was a lot of persuading my wife before making my purchase on a 1,650 paintball marker... Which I admittingly got for 1,300... I'm by no means "rich".. I'm in sales at work .. All straight commission, and lets just say I had a good week : )

Hey its awesome to see people sticking with the sport, and its a badass set up for starting out, you certainly won't have much to want for with that! I am married myself, and it can be hard sticking with the sport with all the other stuff going on, but you'll appreciate it more every single time you get to get out haha.

A common philosophy around here is that the best backup marker is a well-maintained primary.
A $1000+ gun shouldn't be having any catastrophic issues to warrant the purchase of a secondary so long as you take care of it.
I would just save your money in that sense.

Yeah... That would make sense that 1,000 plus marker assuming its kept well maintained shouldn't have any issues.. But I kinda wanted a lower grade entry level tournament marker for maybe if a friend new to the sport wanted to use something other than a rental.

People are so condescending when it comes to this stuff. It's his money and he should be able to do whatever he wants with it. I don't care if you spend $3000 on a gold plated ion, it makes no difference to me. So unless he is neglecting his family or basic necessities, then there should be no issue and should not be blown out of proportion.
