In Topic: Am I crazy for not liking Speedball?

25 November 2012 - 04:18 PM


Thank you for the relies! I'm glad to see I'm not alone. :) But I do agree on the point some posters brought out that I should try it, which I plan to do. :) But I don't see myself playing Speedball with a Kaos. It's gonna be a bad time. :P I know Mike did it, but I'm no where like Mike.(Yet)



Using a ramping gun when only playing weekends, is that a dick move? or just using ramping when someone else is?


most fields are semi only anyway

At the field I go to, they rent out Etha, lol. So they allow ramping I'm assuming. I'm thinking about getting an Etha, but probably just use Semi on the weekends. But is a 300$ maker worth just shooting Semi on weekend and play speedball once in a blue moon? I feel it'll be a waste of money.

I've owned about 10 different electros (Egos, Geos, DM's, G6R's, etc) and I only shoot semi auto. You're not paying for the rate of fire (which you can achieve from a $150 Spyder,) but for the quality of the marker itself

VERY good point! I never thought of it like that. Still a little scared of spending 300$ on a gun without shooting it. I'll need to do that before I buy it.

I am a huge fan and proponent of woodsball. I think it's a great way to spend a weekend, it gets the creative juices flowing when forming an attack and its fun to socialize with some of the newer players that show up and helping them out.

I can understand why Speedball might seem repetitive, but I often play it as a way to close out my day/shoot up whatever paint I have left if I have enough. It also allows me to socialize with some more experienced players, and learn some skills you really can't pick up on the woodsball field.


It's not for everybody, but you should givei t a chance now and then, you might find something you like about it.

^ Is probably what I'll end up doing. :)

It's stuck all the way in? have you taken it out and tried unscrewing it?

If you do cut the spring, only cut it 1 or 2 coils at a time, you don't want to cut too much.

I have tried everything I know to unscrew it. And cutting at 1 at a time sound smarter. :P Thing if I just have to wait until I get to the field.

Sounds like you would need a new spring. Also, in pretty sure this happened to me. Try to take out the whole assembly (spring and end cap) and get some oil in the end cap where the adjuster is threaded in. You could TRY to take the adjuster out from there.

I haven't this the oil way yet, I'll give it a shot!
