What's the lightest set up for 15 bps play. No gravity hopper jokes. But actually the lightest one. I've been playing with heavy big guns forever. It's time to step my game up. I want super light. Super tight. Comfortable. Simple. And ability to shoot 20 bps. Although my field only allows 12-15.

I made a thread of the lightest markers at one time. G6R and G3 were the lightest.

I believe some of the newer egos, as well as DP G3/G4 are lighter than a mini, but i may be wrong on that.

Who am I, what am I, and what do I do? I'm a Christian, I'm a Gator, and I'm a drummer.

Well I tried out a 50/45 tank. And its just to small. So ill use my ans 68/45. I'll get the mini. Put a nice barrel on it. The hopper this far is a mystery. But I'm thinking of the v max. Only because I shoot slow and they are sooooo cheap. My brother has one. It's great.

And ill be putting the pinokio paddles and a speed feed on it.

I stand corrected, g6r and G3 is lighter than the mini.


But even when you go to a larger tank a 68/45 weighs close to 3 pounds.

So New setup

G6R 1.8 pounds
Spire 2 pounds
68/45 3 pounds

6.8 pounds total

For light and tight the mini is probably the only way to go when talking electros. For a hopper look into a spire or a z2, they both felt pretty light.

If you're more comfortable with the larger tank, than I'm going to assume you aren't the smallest person in the world. That said, shoot the mini before you commit to it. I say this because if you are a bigger person than you may want to switch up to the axe or something a little larger. the extra .2 ounces is worth the extra distance between the grips. I would say try the G6R, Mini, and AXE. I know the price range is all over the place, but its worth it to know you are getting what feels best. When it comes to a matter of ounces than its worth it to think more about comfort.

Try a 45/45. Nearly as long as a 68, but WAY lighter..

The lightest isn't always the best. To me, super light setups seem flimsy and fragile. Most modern guns aren't that heavy anyway.

I'd go G6r, Ninja 68(easiest to shoulder which will make it seem light), Whichever superloader you prefer.

Unlike the Mini, the G6r comes out of the box with a nice barrel, trigger, and board. It's nicely spaced too so it will feel more managable.

I am really happy with how evenly spread the weight of my Empire Axe/Z2/Ninja 45/45 feels. I would give the Z2 a try over the Spire and a 45/45 over a 68. You won't regret it.


Of course the LIGHTEST set up of all is a Pistol and 2 mags ;).

I made a thread a while back with weights of markers, hoppers, barrels, and air tanks. Keep in mind that I have limited equipment, but your marker is only a part of the weight. Factor in air tank, air, barrel, hopper, and paintballs, and the saving of a few ounces from one marker to another isn't going help you that much. Kind what is comfortable first and foremost. Worry about weight later. You could give members of Dynasty, or any other pro team, Javier markers, say AKA Vikings, unmilled, and the level of play will only barely change.

G6R with a Deadlywinds barrel, Z2, and a GA tank obviously a small tank like a 13/3000 will be lighter than a huge one. But regardless of size a GA tank I think should be the lightest tank you can use in the US compared to any others at the same size. Europe you can get even lighter tanks that are not certified for use in the USA.
