Not being able to switch hands is not a bad thing or a hinderance in any way whatsoever. But I wouldn't go with a remote line, I'd go with a marker that allows you to use a 13ci tank in the stock. I've heard good things about Scarab Arms, and they're not a bad price.

In Topic: Sponserd

My first piece of advice, if you're asking people for money, is to make sure you spell it right. It's sponsor, not sponser, and sponsored, not sponserd. Helps make you seem more legit, and worth the money they're giving you.

 

My second piece of advice is to ask yourself who, what, where, when and why.

 

Who do you want to sponsor you?

 

What do you want your sponsor to give you?

 

Where are you going to show off your sponsorship?

 

When are you going to help promote them?

 

Why should they give you anything?

 

 

 

These are some more questions you need to answer.

 

What tournaments have you been in?

 

What prizes/trophies have you won?

 

What scenarios have you played in?

 

How many people do you have on your team?

 

How long has your team existed?

 

If people give you something, whether it be goods, services, or money, how are you going to give them a positive return on their investment?

 

 

 

You have to realize that they view a sponsorship as an investment. You have to articulate clearly what you want from them, why they should give it to you, and how you'll be able to make sure they get a positive return on their investment.

 

If you can't give them a positive return on their investment, then you're simply wasting their time, because they're not going to give you anything.


In Topic: Dye Lock Lids

That depends on what price you're getting them for. I've probably got like 10 locklids, and I love using them. They're easier to open than normal pods, they hold more paint, and they look cooler. But, I didn't pay $5 a piece for them. I got them used on the cheap, probably a dollar a piece, if not less. Some I even got for free. Do I think they're worth $5? Eh, maybe yes, maybe no. Do I prefer them over normal pods? Sure do. Am I glad I got some on the cheap? Yup.

I've played paintball with normal hoppers for the last 16 years, it would be so hard for me to deal with a warp feed. Not switching hands would just feel "wrong." Even if a loader like this came out and would allow you to not have to switch hands, I'd probably switch anyway just cause that's what I'm used to.

 

It's so nice not having some massive blob sticking up on top of your hopper, just begging to be hit. It also gives you so many more options of how to peek out from bunkers. I loved having a warp, it was so convenient and simply awesome.

 

The reason they're not used more is because too many people want the absolute lightest setup they can possibly have, and a warp isn't as light as they want.
