Is it worth replacing my Apex with an Apex2?

16 March 2012 - 03:15 AM

Looking for some input, preferably from anyone who has used both.



Are there any big differences in the apex and its predecessor? Is it worth the difference in price (after selling my original apex) to upgrade? If it makes any difference, it would be used on a Tippmann A5.



Thanks


Hell survivors player appreciation St. Pattys day event

Been to one of these before and it was a blast. The crew at hell's does a great job with all their woodsball games and this one is no different.


If you have any friends who are on the fence about whether or not to play paintball this is a great event to show them what woodsball is like without having to blow $60+ on registration and air before they even get to hold a gun.

Best way to store paint?

23 March 2010 - 04:02 AM

Hey, I'm not sure if this has been asked here before, I did a search and didn't come out with any results, so here goes.

What would you guys suggest as a good method to store paint in between games?

I can only really make it to one or two big games a month at most, and I'm looking for a good way to keep my excess paint in good condition. It would be sitting around for up to a month at a time, in between the large scenario games at my local fields.

I've got roughly 3,000 rds. left over from various days of play, and I would prefer not to mix them, since the fields I go to are all FPO and I plan on using the paints again at their respective fields. I don't have all the original bags, I have some but not all. Some of the paint came from filled pods that weren't used, so there's no packaging for them left.

Would it be best to store them in pods? Or maybe a grocery bag? Zip-lock bag? Ahh, help me out here!

thanks in advance,
-Paul

*****Edit: Answered, thanks! For anyone thats reading you should put them in one gallon ziplock bags and keep them at room temp. Someone suggested keeping the bags in a cooler, thats what ill be doing.

And be sure to flip the bags once or twice a week.*****

difference between 68/4500 and 48/3000?

13 January 2010 - 11:48 PM

Okay, so I was looking for a new air system, because CO2 just isn't cutting it for me anymore. Im interested in getting a Ninja compressed air tank.

I play woodsball, not more than 9 games a year I'd say.

First question, whats the difference between a 68/4500 and a 48/3000. Im fully aware that the first one can hold 68 cubic inches of air compressed to a pressure of 4,500 PSI, and that the second one can hold 48 cubic inches of air compressed to a pressure of 3,000 PSI.

But what does that mean for me if I'm using the 48/3000? Less shots per fill? Less velocity per shot?

The reason im asking is because the price for the 48/3000 is roughly 100.00$ less than the 68/4500. I knew form the start that the 68/4500 is absolutely better, but I'm a poor college student, and that makes the 48/3000 much more appealing.

Thanks in advance for your help

This makes me really angry.

The above link is to a video of a kid putting a can on top of his head and then having a different, very stupid kid try to shoot it off with a paintball marker while another stupid kid watched.

None of the three had masks or goggles of any kind on.

I took the embedded vid out of my post because im pretty sure its a no-no here.

Needless to say, I could possibly understand how this might be funny to someone who doesnt paintball, but from my point of view this is very reckless and very stupid. Not to mention it gives all of us a bad name. And if it does happen to be fake thats just as bad for giving us a bad name.
