In Topic: The SP8

26 August 2009 - 02:47 AM

The shell materials on the SP-8 are kind of weak (unlike the materials used in the SP-1)and the feed neck requires an elbow, making the hopper sit quite high (this also creates quite a weak point, having seen feed necks snap off in the field). Maintenence requires the guts being removed from the shell halves and getting things back together is a longer process than many markers.
If you are accepting opinions, the SP-1 with Blackheart board is less expensive ($250), has a clamping center-feed, much stronger materials, better stock board (by far), and bolt-out-back maintenence. Spend the difference on a barrel (the stock one is pretty good) or a double trigger kit and you're smokin' a stock SP-8.
Hope this helps...

You have a point. I go through Gold Bond and water like it's going out of style... :)

In Topic: DP g3 vs DP Fusion F7

19 August 2009 - 04:57 AM

I don't own the G3, but my Fusion is extremely efficient (something I've never heard the local G3 owners brag about), has a low pressure regulator, and doesn't need to be lubed as often (a moot point for most of us who take good care of our markers). I also like the built in pressure gauge. I bought mine direct from DP for $195 last year and consider it $ well spent.

I've seen these shred on the field a lot. If you can wear 'em, BDU's are the way to go. Cheaper and way more durable, but lack the breathability. Small trade-off but well worth it, IMO.
