In the last 15 years I used a few different masks. From Scott goggles to JT Spectra thermals to E-vents. The E-Vents did the best for me for many years. But they were never the most comfy mask and every now and then they would still fog. So I put a fan in my latest ones, this made them a heavy mask. So for first time in a few years I decided to try some New masks out and settled on the V Force Grills with a Thurmo lens. Very comfy (not as comfy as the sly Profits my sister uses but much cooler and lighter) breaths even better than the E-Vents and I have yet to get them to fog at all.
For playing rec ball I usually play hopper ball weather I shooting pump or semi. I don't rly shoot much, if any more paint playing with my semis than if using either of my open class pumps.
That being said when I play big games I do find I go threw a bit more paint shooting semi as I'm a bit more willing to try long balling. Were with the pump I find I sort of have to move up more and thus don't seem to expend quite as much paint.
Now if I playing stockclass pump or MagFed pistol I go threw far less paint than either simply as I don't have much on me to start and due to style of play don't require much.
And lastly when I deside to display the awesomeness of a X-Valved mag on SHP Air. Well then paint seems to have a way of disappearing at ALARMING rates. So I don't do that much.
I have both. The KPII Is a smoother shooting pump and far easier to upgrade. It's a fun little shooter and one I don't for see selling. It works well for a general play gun.
That being said my gen 2 SL68II. Is still my hands down Favorite pump. It's far simpler design means no worries about failures, its construction is bullet proof. It's more compact and arguably more comfy. I upgraded my SL68II with a custom ordered Brass Barrel from Palmers pursuit in a .680 bore (to fight against roll outs) and in my opinion that's the ONLY thing this gun needs. And in a pinch this done even has auto trigger.
Just relished this was an ancient post that some one bumped. My bad.
Have owned both. The Trracer is a pretty good little gun and works well when set up for stock class play. But it's bolt is a little soft and if you play open class and shoot ALOT you will need to replace the bolt in 10 cases or so. That being said empires warranty is awesom so it likely only cost you time and an email to fix.
The Kaos is a great shooter very smooth and is one of the best entry level open class pump guns on the market. The Kaos reg leaves a bit to be desired so i replaced mine with a CP (kept leaking). It also does not have auto trigger witch does not make a big deal but is worth noting.
