In Topic: Pump play

25 February 2010 - 12:29 PM

So many acronyms, my military mind is swirling....

Play pump because it's fun. There are other ancillary reasons to play pump, but if you're not having fun why bother? If you haven't already, try borrowing a pump from someone at the field for a game or two. That way you kind of know what you're getting into before you buy the gear. If you have made up your mind to play pump, then buy functional gear that you are comfortable with, and spend the rest of your money on paint/air/entry fees. Don't get caught up in the urge to upgrade everything.

As mentioned above, and in Mike's video, skill is a product of the work you put into it, so use the cost savings the pump gun gives you to play more paintball, and you will get better at it.

As far as guns go, I'm partial to Snipers like the V2 Classic, but have heard many good reports about the Kaos pump as well. The SL-68II is another decent pump in that price range. Go with what you like, and see if you can wear it out playing a lot of ball. ;)

Yellow is really for low light conditions (like in the woods, or toward the end of the day when the sun gets lower.) If your local field is pretty open and sunny, I'd say get a smoke lens first, then maybe the yellow if you find yourself needing it. The clear lens works for low light as well, so you might not need the yellow at all.

Pro Axis all the way, if you're thinking about buying another mask. I have a camo Switch EL, and just picked up the Pro Axis. I traded my Dye I3 Pro for the Pro Axis to get the quick change lens. IMO, the Pro Axis fits pretty much like the I3, which I like a lot, but is 100% the better mask because of the quick change lens. The EL is my backup mask; it is also a great mask, I just like the closer fit and lighter weight of the Pro Axis for most days when I play. I also like being able to swap lenses from the EL to the Pro Axis, less to buy.

Snipers/Cockers are stacked tube designs, just not blow back. Maybe a little more time consuming to break down than something like a Phantom, but not hard to maintain.
