The Droid (why is it not in this forum)

NEW MacDev Droid Marker


Droid Details
Feed tube: threaded, cam lock
Barrel threads: Autococker
Barrel: 2pc MatchStik
Electronics: MacDev Militia Soft V5
Fire modes: 12
Eye: visible break beam
Indication: Chameleon LED
Detent: Spring ball
Inline regulator: Gladiator
Efficiency: 1700+ (68/4500psi)
Operating Pressure: 100psi
More specs available soon.
For years, spool valve paintball markers have been inneficient, slow and unreliable. MacDev have created a new generation spool that is designed to change the way that players view spool valve markers. The Droid spool uses patent pending technology to fire each ball using less air and with faster cycles. This revolutionary spool design has been packed into a highly milled and finished body.

i like how it skates right between the dye and sp patents on spools.

I will say I don't like the new look of the glad.

If SP doesn't sue them, it's most likely because they're already paying royalties.

Could the fact that the droid is produced and distributed in another country have anything to do with it getting by with it?

the fact that it's sold in the US takes away that advantage. Also, SP has international patents.

This marker has been the new hot item in the high end market. Becaouse it's new it's getting a little more hype than it diserves... I've heard people bragging about the "no kick", but from what I've seen, it's the same as any spool. Maybe all the people are just used to poppet-vavles like the borgs, idk, its not that amazing.

As for efficentcy, it's not that much better than a quest. Yes it's more than a shocker or dye, but I don't think it's possible to get much worse without a leak in your gun.

With that said, in a year or 2 I plan on picking one up for somewhere around $500.

The real question here is why did you up a dead thread, about a marker you have not used.

Yeah, I'm trying so hard to find a good deal on a white Droid. And then figure out a way to buy it. While I will say it's nothing REVOLUTIONARY, it's definitely the best gun out there at the moment IMO. Cheaper than a DM8/Ego8, smoother than the Ego, better efficiency than the DM, sexier than 95% of all the guns made. Everything about that gun is quality.

Or they're in Australia and its very difficult to enforce patents over borders.

I've never seen or shot a droid. I tend to like stacked tube poppets better than spoolers(my 04 cyborg still shoots very well). But my freestyle shoots tits, its efficiency and reliability aren't too great though. If I had the money for a high end gun like that, I'd get the droid.
