In Topic: What is your favorite marker and why?

16 December 2014 - 01:21 PM

For rec paintball (speedball or woodsball) I have a hard time choosing my fav between a VSC Phantom or a mech cocker.  Both are very good shooters, never needed more in open play.

 

I don't blame you, those are both excellent choices. My brother ThePhantom uses either his Vertical Stock Class Phantom with ghost ring and T-Stock or his back bottle open-class Phantom, he is a paintball ninja so if sense him it is already too late haha, I know from experience  :ph34r:. They are both very accurate and reliable markers in the right hands, nice choice and glad to see someone bring up a pump  :tup:

 

To answer your original question, choose the one you like best. Doesn't have to be woodsball or speedball, just what you enjoy playing with.

You just called a shocker effecient im slightly concerned lol.

 

As for me its a toss up between the Ton Ton NXT shocker. IE the only shocker I havent owned that I really want and my current Stars and Stripes Ego 8 

 

Keep in mind, I mainly have used a 98 Custom or a version of it, so pretty much anything is more efficient to me hahahahahaha :).

Not too shocked to see the many shocker fans (see what I did there) represented in this thread thus far. An amazing marker line then and now as many have mentioned, it was used by many professional teams in the early 2000's when paintball was on the rise and on ESPN2. Lightweight, easy to maintain a high rate of fire, and as efficient as they come, the shocker definately belongs in this thread.

 

One of the other goals I had for this thread was to allow for you all to show your markers with pictures. I'll upload pics of my 98 Platinum (I call it a flat'n'em because my flatline) when I get home after thanksgiving.


In Topic: Freak or Flatline

03 September 2014 - 12:23 PM

I use a 98 Custom Platinum with a Flatline barrel and really like it. I used to have one on my original 98 Custom too and even though it was bulkier at the time that one worked fine as well. The only thing is they are picky on paint, I recommend Marballizer or other thicker shelled paint as the Flatline is harder on paint than most barrels due to the ramp. Also if you go with the Flatline get a nice soft type of squeegee, if you use a cheap plastic one you will scratch up your barrel and ruin it. 

 

My brother used to have a Freak Jr. kit on his 98 Custom, before he switched to his Vertical Stock Class Phantom, that was the most accurate barrel and marker I had seen on our field. It is much less picky on paint since you can choose the insert appropriate and under bore every time. Since it is a straight barrel you won't have to worry about breaks as much and when they happen they won't be as problematic for you. 

 

In the end, they are both great for different reasons. The Flatline allows you to shoot further in a straight trajectory, which can be very nice for when you have to shoot through a small clearing in the trees or brush and cannot arc your shots. While the Freak will give you a more flexible system that will allow for the best paint to barrel match every time. Essentially, if you want to reach out and touch someone, Flatline. If you want a more consistent barrel, Freak. Hope this helps!
