In Topic: superman dives

your not getting up enough speed

If you're not a fast runner, superman dives are not for you


Well that's pretty much wrong...

You should be able to do it as long as you can run. Don't jump in the air when trying to dive, and don't just fall.

You want to run real low to the ground. You then begin to fall while running and push your self off with your feet and you will slide.

Mid in speedball is a position where you really need to know how to do everything(not that you shouldn't already).

In the sense as a mid player you will be going up further than your backs, but closer than the fronts. You should be able to keep your front players alive and fill into their postitions when they bump up or are shot out.

You should be able to run and gun pretty good to be a mid player because you should be doing that to your bunker every single game.

You also need good communication because you have to relay everything to your front guys. This is also the position that probably requires the most gunfighting.

Pretty much that is it. Learn every position, learn how to gunfight, and learn how to run and gun and you ill be a successful paintball player, not just a midplayer.

Maybe it is because you are holding yourself back.

A little bit of fear or something due to the gun.

There really isn't much you can do but practice.

Hey man,

I've been wondering the same thing.

It seems like for around 200$, it boils down two these:

1. Proto SLG (199$)
2. Azodin Blitz (169)
3. SP Vibe (149)(with blackheart 225$)
4. A good deal on something used
.... But never an SL94/XE, just incase you were thinking it. Smart Parts has a rep of being a douchy company, and I've heard too many complaints about this marker to consider it again.

But 250 would also bring some other markers into the discussion (Azodin Zenith, Maybe Proto SLG UL, and probably more too). And I haven't heard anything about the Zenith's yet, but people seem to think the SLG Basic is the best deal.

If you want to get more info, here's a couple of polls I've run on the subject with many more markers in this price range (200$ and under). Hopefully they will intorduce you two some more options in this price range, and feel free to vote if you like too!

Cheers bro,

I think your list is good, but if you hate Smart Parts so much why recommend a Vibe? The SL94 is a pretty good gun.
