In Topic: Where to play speedball in Eastern CT/Hartford county

10 March 2015 - 05:22 PM

CT is a small State. Hogans & Outback have been pretty much the only choices that have lasted more than a few years. Others have come and gone both indoor & outside.

Strategy Plus was one of the oldest paintball fields in the world, the owner passed away last year.

Now called Strategic Compound and mostly airsoft.


Another new spot is Fields of Fire in Mystic CT, I have high hopes for that place.

In Topic: What is your favorite marker and why?

My favorite that I actually use would be a Sheridan KP2-df.
I just love the wood stock, and the looks people give it on the field.
The sound firing is very distinctive & deceptive.

In Topic: cci mounting block

There are two listings on PhantomOnline for that item.
One is for an under-mount for the pump handle.
This is for mounting a pump handle that does not slide on the barrel and requires the rest of the kit made by CCI. Doesn't work with aftermarket undermount kits.

The other is a mounting block designed to attach a bottomline air source to one of the hollow M-16 grips. This can be used with any aftermarket ASA bottomline.

In Topic: CCI Phantom Setup Advice

Buying direct from CCI is the best way to go.

Buying a new Phantom you can get whatever you want, but it sounds like you want two different mainbodies.
One Stock Class & one open feed, which can be left, right, or center feed. Only another $35 to get an extra body, and everything else stays the same.
Swapping out the Main Body between open feed & stock class feed is less than 2 minutes, and you don't even have to de-gas the valve to do it.

And I never get roll outs due to technique, I don't put a ball in the barrel and then go running around ~ that's just asking for it to happen.
I only pump a ball into the barrel when I'm bringing the marker up to aim, the ball has maybe one second before I pull the trigger (with practice, the pump action and trigger pull are nearly simultaneous).

One thing about Phantoms I will say; They don't wear out, they wear in.
The more you use it, the smoother the pump stroke gets and FPS is more consistant.

In Topic: The greatest stockclass marker?

I think it would be awesome if you all at punk works tested these head to head and showed finally hands down which is the more, even slightly, better maker, and put the debate to rest.

Can't be done. Too many variables, the greatest being everybody has a different opinion about what constitutes "best".

You find what works best for YOU, and that's the best pump regardless that someone else may have a different opinion.
