Revy

I do not understand why people put revvys on their high end guns. I saw in my pb2x that a guy with an angel was shooting a revvy. Is it because they are fronts? Help me out. Any input will be appreciated.

Because they work. If you are a front or even a mid player, do you NEED to throw cases of paint at 20bps? Frankly a revvy is light, reliable, cheap, and gets the job done at up to 13 bps..

Also, it could have been an older picture when they had to run revvys on all high end guns because it was the fastest electronic loader.

Yea - Light, Affordable, Some what reliable, Cheap Shells so easy to replace, can feed 13+ but like mine (after the board fryed from rain) I had a 6 blade in it along with an x-board... it fed fast for a revvy.

Depends on the revvy, but probably yes.

I love eggs. There light and can hold alot of paint. Loading is kinda of gay tho.

And yes, revvys would be good but they dont always feed 15+ let alone being consistent at 15+.


hmm... I never shot a rickoshet tho.

you probably won't get more than 12-13 bps. if you somehow find the WAS board that used to be for the revvy you will get like 13 bps constant. it will work though.

i own them all excaept the reloader. Both eggs ive had have broken feednecks, the revy is the most reliable and easy to use so far, the ricochet has had some amazing bounces, but it was kindof slow, and my halo is the fastest but everything is complicated.

Sometimes you want to conserve paint.

a lot of pros use them because they are light, reliable, or in some cases they have no choice because of sponsorships

I have a Proto and have shot it with a revy. I've mostly been using my halo, but a revy feeds perfectly fine when I have my gun set at psp ramping.

Thanks guys

The real reason behind this is because I really, really, really, really, really, hate my egg. I got a deal on a revvy for 20$. So I should do it right? Oh yea, did I say I really hate my egg yet?

Eggs can feed quick but they're gay because

1) they're fragile
2) loading sucks
3) only 2 color choices (i know, who cares anyway, its still a downside though)
4) they are kinda big, making it an easy target for thoes pesky hopper hits

eggs are okay but if i was in a tourney with a 15 bps cap, i would just use a revvy. they're alot smaller and sit nice and low, and are pretty reliable. if im just playin rec i would probably use an egg because i could shoot alot faster.
