In Topic: What is your favorite marker and why?

I forgot you owned that prototype rev-i... such a cool marker. 

 

DP isn't a bad company really. They're not as great as they were before being bought out (IMO), but I still don't think they deserve the reputation they have now. It's more hearsay and user error than anything I think, they go hand in hand, and that gives them a worse name than they deserve. 

 

I especially liked the threshold, and the DP F8. The rev-i was really neat too and the g3 is still my favorite G-series marker they've made. Then again... these were all pre- buyout markers. After this things did change for DP, but I don't know if I'd call them bad by any means. My teammate has a g4 as a backup and I've seen it used more than a few times without error. Pretty nice little markers honestly.

of the 80ish markers I've owned I always return to the shocker.

 

When I first got into paintball shockers were the big thing to have and I wanted one so badly as a teen, but could never afford one. I was always watching paintball on ESPN and youtube and just loved seeing dynasty with their PL shockers, Russian legion with theirs, Ton-ton's with theirs, Strange with theirs, and so on. It was a PL shocker fest out there and it was epic to see. If you missed the shocker era in paintball you really missed out... 

 

Not to mention the private label shockers were actually cool back then. Unlike the majority of PL markers being made these days. I also love the fact that I can still use my shockers and compete in tournaments without being at any disadvantage. Shockers still perform and I love it! I currently shoot 3 different shockers (RL, Shocktech, dark) and a luxe on the regular. I'd still shoot the shocker next to it's younger brother, the luxe, any day. 

 

Long live the shocker.


In Topic: Best price for axe used?

They're not legal in PSP.

 

taken from an older rule book, but the rules still apply.

 

9.3.10. A marker with any valve, expansion chamber, or other item or device except a barrel or screw-in air source 75 that may be adjusted on the field of play to increase or decrease velocity without the use of tools is illegal.

 

The apex barrel does just that. When you're adjusting the apex tip for more spin you're making an adjustment to the velocity. Therefore, they're not psp legal.

You can get regular axes for like $200 now, my buddy just got an axe pro for $300. 

 

I'd search a little bit harder for a better deal. it's always worth the wait. Find them cheap. Invest little, loose little. $300 for a regular axe now is absurd imo. Then again I just paid $300 for an sft. Then again... it's a very nice shocktech sft lol
