In Topic: HK TFX Loader. Thoughts?

Sure, it's a fair argument - many players will buy only the baseline models or skip the frills.  On the other hand, many go the other direction in their purchases and buy full kit when they can.  I was just trying to illustrate that it can be a deal, but in other situations it will be the same or higher price.


Nonetheless, players are better off with a Speed or Vmax2 anyway.

I would get the axe package and replace the hopper when you get a chance. Halo's are a pain to clean if a ball ever breaks inside.

The Spire is only $30 bucks cheaper if you choose a white shell with a color - orange, purple, red, blue, or lime.  If you buy a black shell it's another $30, if you get the spring ramp that's $10 more, and the speedfeed is $30-$45 more depending on if you get the 2.5 or the spring finger (okay, maybe you'd buy a speed feed anyway, but not for $45).  It's basically the same price or more under many conditions.


Which, honestly, is still too much for a loader.

Sadly, a barrel will do nothing to help your accuracy.  The only thing you can really do at this point is buy higher quality paint and keep your breach/barrel areas clean.  The better the quality and the less contaminants the paint can pickup, the straighter it will fly.


The Proto Rail and the Gog Envy are little different and basically the same thing by two different manufacturers.  I wouldn't recommend that either.


There are plenty of nicer pieces of equipment than what you have, but the cost delta is high while the difference in performance will be marginal.  That makes it hard to recommend making any change for you as a "must have" or "must do".  Are there any things in particular that you don't like about your setup outside of accuracy (which we can't help with)?

In Topic: Ninja Tank Cracking

I had the same experience that Recballer did.  They recoated my tank for free and covered shipping there and back.  It was quick, hassle-free, and easy.  They used to have a link about the issue on their webpage, but it probably slipped through the cracks for players that took time off.
