Topics I've Started

Axe F/S

09 February 2014 - 04:49 PM

Throughout the first semester of college, I was living large. Wanna check out that sweet barbecue place downtown? Sure! Go to Dave and Buster's for a friend's birthday? Of course! The other day, I realized I'm down to my last $30 on my account. I look at myself, and I'm not proud of what I've done. But then I see my empire axe, barely touched since I came to college, and I know what I must do. It's a shame I have to sell such an awesome gun, but a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.


Marker: Empire Axe
Condition: 7.5/10 (normal wear)
Color: Black
Upgrades: None
Known Problems: No problems in functionality. The asa might need a bit of loc-tite, it seems to have some wiggle room. 
Asking Price: $250+shipping
Shipping Options: You pick
Trades of interest: Cash money
Location of item: Troy, NY
What is Included: Everything that comes in the box like it would new (valken barrel cover cause i got it without one)














Thanks for looking, and know this. Just because I'm low on cash doesn't mean you can lowball.

Hopper Advice?

10 July 2013 - 05:34 PM

I know some shit has gone down on here in the past few days, extreme trolling, instigating, etc. Let's try and put that behind us and give me some good advice, alright? Good. 


So here's my issue, my pinokio is on a slow decline, had it for a while now and sometimes it forgets to feed and I have to turn it off and on to get it to work, sometimes it has brand new batteries and says they are low, a bunch of problems and I've been wanting to get a new loader for some time now. I don't hate any of the hoppers on the market right now, but I know some new ones are coming out. So what would you guys suggest? Use my pinokio for the rest of the summer then buy a new loader? Get a currently new one for a lower price once the next line of superloaders comes out? Or get a new one now? Buy used? Support your advice please, that's all I ask. I don't want to be the start of a new bandwagon war.


INB4 Upgrade mentality, no, I just want a reliable speedball hopper for NCPA play. 



Drone DX Allen Keys

30 June 2013 - 05:40 PM

Hey guys, I was just wondering if anyone knew which size allen keys come with the drone dx? I got mine used and it didn't have the box or the tools, but I would like to have all the right sizes. I've searched around on manuals and stuff but have not found anything. I have a few keys that I use but they are unmarked, I just know they work for my gun and that's it. The reason I want to know is because I'm trading my gun, and I want to give the soon to be owner all the necessary keys to maintain it.



Orange/Black MacDev Drone DX F/S/T

23 June 2013 - 11:49 PM




Hey techpb, today I have for sale my Drone DX. This has served as a wonderful primary gun for me in the six or so months I've had it. Reasons for selling are 1.) I like to whore around and 2.) I prefer poppits.

I take good care of this gun, and it returns the favor. I just re-lubed it in preparation to sell.

Anyway, I'm trying to simplify my collection for this fall, and I'm trying to get some cash to save up and buy a gun in the next price range up. If you've read this far, thank you for not skimming.

Here are the details:

Marker: 2011 MacDev Drone DX
Condition: 8/10 normal wear but shoots great! Biggest sign of wear is the screws, but they still screw in and out just fine with the right size allen key.
Color: Orange and Black
Upgrades: Freak Barrel with 3 inserts (.675, .679, .684)
Known Problems: None!
Asking Price: PRICE DROP! $365 $335 obo (no lowballs)
Shipping Options: Anything but USPS (I've had some horrible experiences with lost items and no tracking codes)
Trades of interest: Ego 10 (I would add) or Etek 4. Other than that, any mid to high end poppits. I have some money to add for the right gat. No downgrades please, no 2 for 1s, none of that. I love the color red, so if you have any smexy red guns you wanna offer me, I'm all ears.
Location of item: Massachusetts
What is Included: The gun, the freak barrel with inserts, and I can include the pinokio too if the deal is right.

Should I get a new setup?

22 June 2013 - 11:01 AM

Alright before any of you say "Sell ya paintball stuff, ain't nobody got time (or money) fo dat in collij!"

I plan on playing on the club paintball team. The RPI Engineers, or Redhawks, or whatever they're called lol. The school partially funds the club, so that means I'm not paying as much each time we ball.

Anyway, I'm thinking I should have a super reliable (and relatively low maintenance) setup, because I want to play by the rules and that means no keeping my gear in my room. So I won't exactly be maintaining it all the time (probably only when I'm on the field.)

My current setup is a MacDev Drone DX, Pinokio, and 68/45. I have, of course, the pack and jersey and everything else already. We're focusing on hardware here. My main concern is that, on the field, it just doesn't feel reliable. It gives me an iffy vibe. My friend loves it, but maybe the gun or loader just doesn't like me. Sometimes the pinokio doesn't feed, and I have to turn it off and back on to get it to work. Even with fresh batteries. I don't want to have this problem when I'm playing 5v5 in the NCPA...

Maybe it's just an issue of my loader, I'm the second or third owner, but what do you guys think? I personally prefer poppits, and before I got the Drone, the Etek 3 never chopped a single ball. Maybe that's just lucky, or maybe that's cause the Etek was capped at 15.4 bps while the Drone has no built in cap. I chop (not barrel breaks, bolt chop) when I go full auto (eyes on) to empty my last 100 paintballs of the day in the chrono station. Even with my friend's rotor. I don't know what the problem is, I have plenty of air when I shoot it. I think my dwell is set to about 9 ms.

I'm really up in the air right now, and I want to get this all sorted out before I go off to college and start playing.

TL;DR, debating whether or not to sell what I have now and look for a new gun+loader combo, a pretty open mind but it needs to be same mid-range level for college tournament play.
