I kinda want a 50 cal marker

Do they even sell 50 cal paintballs anymore? 50 cal would be fantastic for scenario events.

maybe pick up an older ego, and a 50 cal conversion kit.
Or see if ANS is still selling 50 cal markers for dirt cheap

that would be hard to find, but fantastic! I wonder if they'll pop up more often when empire releases the new one?
I've always been curious about how those things shot, but since SP was in the process of burrying themselves, I never got the chance to find out.

Do most big games let you bring 50 cal? I bet i've have to talk to somebody first, or at least send them an email

According to Mike they shoot well and it is fantastic that you can have so many in a pod/loader but that they do reduce a bit of range.

and carry less energy, meaning they won't break as easily either.

Maybe this isn't such a great idea

He claimed they broke well. Iwon't trust him much though, for he didn't specify at what distance was he.

It's also Mike, who's a general douche when it comes to life and will give a great review to ANYTHING that he's given enough "incentive" to give a great review to.

Well I never met Mike, but since he said that the G4 and G3 where great I don't trust him.

It's a well known fact that because of his popularity with braindead morons, companies will send him free markers and such as long as he gives them a glowing review. And then he sells them to make money. The more often they send him free stuff, the better the reviews.

He's said that he buys everything, a good part of them at full price. I dunno if I believe it, though.

That explains why all of the high end markers's reviews are rated as great. He said that the G-1 is absolutelay great, while he gave the TM-7 and 15 a more-less rating (They are not high end, but the G-1 I belive just barely makes it to the mid-range classification and is no that good).

But yet again, he's paintball's most well-known celebrity .

he doesnt, i know i have seen reviews where he mentions someone sent him the marker, if its for him to keep or just to review i dont know though.

but think about it, between just a new ego and matrix there is 3k per year

im not sure why you think 50 cal would be a good idea but it looks like the only 2 companies still making it are spyder and SP
