Sticktodrum has stopped making paintball videos officially. I was a big fan of his videos and he will be greatly missed

Dont let the door hit your ass on the way out


Stop worrying about how you look, and start worrying about how you play. Get out on the field and play paintball the best you can, not stand at home in front of a mirror trying to figure out if your jersey matches your eyes.

I had to say his etek review and axe vs etek videos were probably the funniest things I've ever seen.
This is exactly what marketing guns has come down too. a dick waving contest. You can say all the stuff you want but until you whip it out wave it around and prove it to the world everyone will doubt you. -bigx

You guys realize he hasn't gone anywhere, he's just not making paintball videos.

 

Hate him or like him, at least you could trust him to not bullshit around or sugarcoat anything.

Why so much hate? I always liked stick's reviews, they were really funny. The man is entitled to his opinion, just because you disagree doesn't make him bad. 
Or is because he bashed your favorite gun?

He has some quality videos, but it got kinda annoying when he would over criticize triggers. Triggers are personal preference and can easily be replaced if you don't like the stock one.

Edited by cockerpunk, 26 November 2013 - 03:43 PM.

The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

lol it's funny to see how much hate there is in this thread considering how much everyone was up his ass when he started making vids.

I enjoyed watching his reviews, disagreed with many of his opinions but he produced entertaining content and I'll be keeping my subscription for that reason.

Never took you for a Stick hater. Oh well.

Don't understand the hate either. Sure he was biased as hell in his reviews, and hated 80% of what he put his hands on, but that's how he is. He will voice his opinion, no matter what anyone says. He even said it himself. That's the beauty in it. Someone who's not afraid to find something wrong about the "greatest" and talk shit about it as much as he can.

Who says I hate him? I love that dude, but we have some really different opinions when it comes down to markers. And the overdone critizie on triggers dragged his videos down.(which where otherwise quality)

Reviewers are all biased. They look at it from their point of view and tell you what they think of the product. Stick considered the trigger the most important part of the marker so he focused on that.

His jokes were sometimes funny, but to be honest the major piss off was that he was so damn picky about grammar. I mean we fucking get it, you have a masters/bachelors (whatever) in english, that doesn't mean you gotta go around shoving it down peoples throats and then claim that they're stupid because they refuse to spell correctly on the internet?

I wonder what the typical lifespan of a "paintball" youtuber is...

 

I mean there are only so many ways to film someone unboxing the latest gear, and though I personally didn't like the amount of profanity in sticks videos. I think his content had a place, and it will be missed by the community. 

 

I am curious, how many paintball youtubers decided they were done making paintball content this year?

 

I know that Tyger is done, and now Stick... Who else walked away from their paintball gun/camera/fans in 2013?

 

I'd probably say once the cash runs out

 

When I first launched the TechPB Youtube Channel, I was spending $10,000 a month sometimes making videos

 

Here is the thing, when it comes to "money", you're ONLY advertiser when making Youtube videos is Google Adsense. You won't get cash from Dye, Empire, Planet Eclipse or anyone else. They all have their OWN Youtube channels, why the hell would they need to spend money supporting yours?

 

Once all the companies started their own Youtube channels 3+ years ago, they LONG since stopped supporting mine. 

 

Sure, you can make a grand or two a month making Paintball videos, but you can spend ten times that in one month making shows. 

 

You think Dye, Planet Eclipse, Empire, or Macdev are going to send you a "free gun" to support your channel? Hell no, at best you can do is buy it at dealer cost.

 

Making videos is BRUTALLY expensive. Say you decide that you want to review a MacDev Clone GTI, Vanquish, JT Impulse, DM14, Geo 3.1, Defender, and the Bob Long VIS.

 

That's $10,000+ in guns alone, not counting paint or anything else. 99% of paintball players won't spend $10,000 in their entire paintball career. You're about to spend $10,000 for a half dozen videos... 6 videos

 

That could EASILY smoke an entire YEARS worth of Adsense revenue, for 6 shows!

 

Why do you think Israel from Social Paintball only puts up highlight videos, not reviews? Because to do a single gun review cost $1,300+

 

It's not worth it. It's why I've dramatically cut back on reviews, it's why other people quickly cut back on reviews. You are on your own, to find a way to support your own videos, no one else will.

 

Tyger quit simply because he's an insecure, jealous, back stabbing fucking oof who just completely lost his bearings in paintball. Tyger has been quitting paintball for the past 5 years, he's just getting frustrated because the "shock" of him quitting wore off years ago, and now he's trying to be as big of an asshole to everyone he possibly can. 

 

No one cares of you quit paintball. No one cares if you come back. It's just a hobby people, it's no different than racing at your local RC car track, or mountain biking at your local trail. When you quit, no one notices. When you come back, no one cares.
