Clone VX

Spire or Rotor

68/4500

Deadlywind Fibur

 

I also wear both my knee and elbow pads, paintball pants or BDUs depending on how I'm feeling and a compression shirt under another short sleeve or long sleeve depending on the weather.

 

Just pick up an electro you like and go to town.  They all do the same thing.  You will want something with decent efficiency though and quietness is a plus in the woods sometimes.

As far as there being better types of speedball guns for woodsball, the only thing that comes to mind is guns that are more efficient. Because other than that, pretty much all speedball guns are the ultimate performance guns for every kind of paintball.

 

I play pump about 75% of the time, but when I use my speedball guns, I use them regardless of the type of paintball being played. I usually favor my Impulse though, since it gets insane efficiency.

Here's a short list of my markers.I only play woodsball and scenarios.most would consider them personally markers for the most part

About 8 gen 1 Ions&SP8s

SP1

TM7

2007 PMR

2011 PMR

Hammer 7

PTP Micromag

1998 STO Autococker

A lot of the guys I play with use Axes,Egos,DMs,etc.There's no real reason you can't use a "speedboat"marker for woodsball.At the field I play at full ramp mode is allowed so faster the better

My usual setup is a DP FX, Ninja 68/4500, and a Rotor. It's super ironic in my case because it's always been my setup in the woods and I've only played 3 games of speedball ever (it's something people certainly tease me about :P ). As it's been mentioned before, any kind of paintball marker will work for whatever kind of venue you are playing. You can run a speedball styled marker on any field and it'll work fine. Likewise, you can run a Tippmann 98 on a speedball field but you'll probably be at a bit of a disadvantage in more ways than one.


I kind of like neck shots, they give other people the impression that I have a social life.

Hopefully I will bring some life back into this thread. I pretty much only play woodsball/scenario and sometimes get looks from some of the snobby hardcore mag-fed/mil-sim players when they see what I run with. They shut up pretty quick after the game though.

 

Invert Mini Dust Black 

Empire halo too/ taped up with woodland camo hunting tape (looking to upgrade soon)

48/3000 aluminum ninja tank (looking to upgrade)

 

I have nothing against the mil-sim style markers, I actually prefer them, but a good set up was a little out of my budget. Considering I spent under $500 on my entire setup (also including JT mask and NXE pod pack), and a friend spent $500+ alone on just a X7 phenom, I'm pretty happy. For the $325, the mini was by far the better than any mil sim marker on the market imo. And I am looking to upgrade my tank and hopper, only b/c of weight.

Both preform very well, and would recommend both. The halo is very bulky and heavy compared to the rotor and prophecy, and any carbon fiber tank is as light as a feather compared to the "steely's".

 

I do try to stick to the mil-sim dress, I'm not a huge fan of the colorful jerseys/pants. I usually run with lightweight hiking boots, BDU pants, knee pads, under armor shirt with built in elbow and rib protection. And I'll throw on the camel back if i have to.

 

Hopefully I can get some pics up soon.

Either a G6r or a Shocker

 

 

G6r when I want to shoot everything and everyone and shocker when I want to be a sneaky beaver.

What's a "speedball gun"?

 

For that matter, what's a "woodsball gun?"

Technically those labels aren't exclusive to any particular marker. Generally speaking, speedball markers tend to be electronic and have the ability to sling large amounts of paint at rapid speeds. They're also usually smaller therefore allowing a tighter set-up and presents less of a target on the field. Woodsball markers can be practically anything because any kind of marker will work fine in the woods. The majority of the paintball world tends to lump mil-sim markers into the "woodsball marker category".

 

In reality, any kind of marker can be used on any paintball field. The dividing line is usually drawn as to what is popular and seen the most on certain fields of play (eg. an Ego 11 on a speedball field and a BT TM-15 out in the woods.)

My (rhetorical) questions were only posed to suggest the very point that you just made.  But yes, I agree with your sentiments.

Spire is the titts you wont regret it. MAKE SURE you spend the extra $10 and get a spring ramp though. Helps sosososo much.

If you are looking to use a speedball marker in the woods might want to concider a spool valve one.  They are much quieter. I have found that to be a huge advantage at times. Personally I like mechanical semi markers or pumps for the woods. But a speedball marker just rocks anywhere you use it.


If your over 18 and pay for your own gear... toss me a pod!

I use my paintball guns to play paintball. All my guns see use on all feilds indescriminantly.

I have headed out on the speedball feild shooting my stock class PGP and I have played scenerios shooting many different Automags my DP E1 and even an SP Impulse back in the day (swapped guns with friend as he wanted to try a walkable mech Automag I had at the time)

Personally though my gun of choice in any game is usually my Tippmann SL-68II. It's super light,TINY, consistant and built like a bloody tank. Oh and Its soo easy to clean and maintain its laughable.

That being said once my legs all healed up I looking forward to really diving into trying out mag fed play more with my converted A5 and my modded T8.1.

Basically what I saying is pick a gun you like and feel comfy with and go play PAINTBALL. Regardless what nich you prefer just play.
AGD 68 Automag, AGD RT ULE, Azodin KPII, Sheridan PGP 2k, Tiberius T8.1,Tippmann Pro/Carbine, Tippmann SL-68II

TIppman Crossover

Ninja 68'4500

Rotor

3+6 Pod pack

Empire Eflex

 

Sometimes I'll just bring one hopper and a pod into a game and try to just use those. I've actually had a lot of fun with it.

My first 'real' paintball gun was a TM-7 which has been a ton of fun, but then I played a lot of pistol games at my local indoor place (picked up a job reffing), and got way too used to not having a hopper in the way. Now I'm kind of trying to sell the TM-7 to help fund a milsig mk3.

 

I also got convinced to try out some speedball while I worked there and picked up an Ego 7, but I haven't used it at an outdoor yet.

Avoid MK3 MILSIGs. I had one, gave me nothing but problems. Pick up a Phenom and an MKPII kit..

many different ways to go for this.. i prefer wearing "Speedball jersey/Pants" and everything when i play woodsball.. 

 

I basically only play woodsball/Scenario, here i used my Ion XE, 68/4500, and Pinokio with nose cone (might look dumb.. but I LOVE the capacity!! ) 

and i shoot ALOT of paint

And then some people like my friend, GOG G1 and all decked out in camo

Both ways can be fun! Up to the player
