In Topic: Which should I get?

22 September 2010 - 03:05 PM

Cuban Jedi asked for advise as the what gun to buy

The list of guns was:



  • Mini Invert (3rd Gen) - Mint condition *****Winner by far
  • Dangerous Power G3 - Good condition ***3rd best
  • Azodin Blitz - New **4th best
  • Proto PMR 09 - Good condition ****2nd best(due to the fact that the plastic parts must be upgraded, plastic = garbage )
  • Spyder Electra 09 - New *5th
Dont give more advise then needed, he asked a specific question, answer it.. why would you make a new player overwhealmed with (those guns suck) or (____ this gun would destroy it) Let him decide, he wants one of those guns, not to be told (better guns are out there)... well obviously there are better guns out there.. but thats not what he asked.

what gear do you have now?

Mask-

Tank-

Loader-

If you have all of those, and good ones of those. Then I suggest the Critical Quest, Infinity Legend or Etek 3.


The guns in bold were not listed as an option for Cuban Jedi.



I would say go with the 3Gen. Mini its a great gun, efficiant, light, durable, shoots ropes upgrade the barrel (i suggest the 14" Cp Barrel ) cheap and effective. I love mine, Zero problems, you wont regret it!!! Goodluck, hope I helped.

Uh, from reading over the thread. It seems like everyone helped him. And the thing that says *banmeplzktx* (I can say *banmeplzktx*, because me and my life partner go to Disney every single year) (I can say *banmeplzktx* (I can say *banmeplzktx*, because me and my life partner go to Disney every single year), because me and my life partner go to Disney every single year) (like that) is a word filter, mods didn't edit it.



Naw man...(i think you a cool guy and have some knowledge on the sport) but i personally think its rude as fuck when if i said " I have 200 bucks to spend on a beginner setup to have fun with help?" and the first two items someone lists is a 150$ tank and a 70$ hopper... well umm thats 220$ thats over 200... i didnt ask for over 200 i said that was my limit... with still a market to buy, mask and other apparel... thats bull shit man and if you dont see that....that sucks but i guess thats just me trying to lookout for the budget ballers... because my dad plays with a spyder xtra.. not a great gun but it shoots and hes good with it.. and i was one of the (upgrade, upgrade) people i kept tellin him to get an ion.. but now i feel like shit looking back on it.. because hes a 40 year old dude, he dont give a shit about some other expenses. hes got a family to worry bbout.. he just likes to have fun.. just like the beginners gettin in, they just wana play prolly feel out the sport see if its fun for them.. anyway maybe its me standing up for the wrong crowd in some peoples eyes but idc.. i thought thats what pb is about... getting newbies in.. not scaring them away with UPGRADE UPGRADE get the new shit b.s.

I earlier posted something in a thread that i was truely pissed about.... a guy had 200 bucks to spend on a basic begginner setup. and when everyone bounces on him saying that "200$ you cant get much" or buy a 150$ tank and a 400$ gun and 70$ hopper ...dont you think thats a bit discouraging...very! i was turn my ass around with a bad taste in my mouth for paintball.. sad...because i guarantee... a guy with a Tippy 98 and Grav Feed hopper and Walmart mask, enjoys his field time just as much a rich boy steven whose 12 and has a dye dm9 with a pinokia and 150 ninja... man its sad because a moderator edited my post and called me *banmeplzktx* (I can say *banmeplzktx*, because me and my life partner go to Disney every single year) (I can say *banmeplzktx* (I can say *banmeplzktx*, because me and my life partner go to Disney every single year), because me and my life partner go to Disney every single year) (I can say *banmeplzktx* (I can say *banmeplzktx*, because me and my life partner go to Disney every single year) (I can say *banmeplzktx* (I can say *banmeplzktx*, because me and my life partner go to Disney every single year), because me and my life partner go to Disney every single year), because me and my life partner go to Disney every single year) and said i have a life partner... wtf is that. im trying to get a point across... that its starting to sound like to be accepted anymore you gotta spend 500+ ive been told numerous times... Minis are garbage.. buy something more expensive for quality... idc man i really dont, my mini keeps up in tournys and i love it... i enjoy playing just as much if not more then my buddy with an ego... i thought techpb was bigger and better then that...


lulz

Those people don't speak for all of TechPB. There will be just as many who tell you to get whatever you want to get, as long as it's a reliable gun. 98's are great guns, and if you like playing with one, do it. Don't listen to those who tell you it's trash and to get the "latest and greatest" encapsulated gelatin ball shooter.



amen bro, i just hate how its like a racial profile.. lol but really like ollie lang would whip my white ass with a 98... lol.. it just sucks that people demean. and degrade those with cheap guns.. like they cant even goto the field for a good stress relief day without saying "man you should look at upgrading" b.s anyways good point. thanks man

I didn't see the original, although you seem a little bit harsh.

Maybe the guys were trying to inform him on stuff he should get at a later date but it is true its difficult to get decent setup for $200 flat. Seeing as I didn't read the post, I'm not sure if anyone told him the best way to buy things: Mask, Hopper, Tank then marker.

In all honesty it is hard to be accepted running around with a 98 Custom. Its like anything else, if you don't have the newest Xbox game you suck, if you don't have the newest whatever your not cool enough. So I guess its just how we are, but we should be a lot more accepting. When I had my 98 my friends were bugging me about how much the marker sucks and how I would fail at speedball. Now I have my Blitz and there still saying how I could get a better marker.

Anyways thats my 2 cents.



and thats really lame...paintball is a sport... reggie bush didnt grow up with state of the art technology to make him who he is... he worked hard practiced and got skill.. i love the azodin.. or the simple fact that its considered cheao in the community.. i have a mini, not expensive but not cheap... i hate that people look down on the beginners or recballed just playing because they love the sport... i hate that man
