best rec ball woodsball gun need help

Ok I have been paintballing for years now and I'm not a new to this sport at all but I have a question..

I need a woodsball marker that is double triggered lower priced fast and reliable that can run either co2 or compressed air, what to get???

I currently shoot a eclipse ego for tourneys and games but I want a rec ball gun for playing in the woods with buddies, I have to travel over an hour to fill my scuba tank with compressed air so sometimes I have to resort to co2 so i need it to run both, co2 is a must.. plus I don't want the eclipse to get wet when we play on a rainy day either...

thanks!

you do know water does nothing to markers right?

yea but when were battling it out in the woods I would hate to damage my expensive gun so I figured I would see whats out there for a nice cheaper marker for those games, plus with any electronic board if you get it wet enough its going to short something out...

unless you're dunking it in water, there's little to no chance to have something go wrong.

I suggest a Smart parts Sp-1, it uses co2 and is also completely safe to dunk into water
Moisture Test - YouTube

You can get them for fairly cheap if you look hard enough.

a few suggestions

-Iind a company you like and stick with one company. If you go with Tippman or Spyder or whatever it might help if you stick with them. That way you can use parts and upgrades later if you get a better marker.

-Decide if you want to go with Mil-Sim or you dont care. Lots of guys want woodsball markers to look more like real guns so make that call. But they are typically heavier and larger so thats a drawback.

-Decide if you want to play speedball. If you want a marker thats good for speedball thats something to consider.

Good luck finding something. Nows the time to buy some good sales on.

this is actually a bad idea and exactly what tippmann wants you to do, that way you get one marker, "upgrade" the snot out of it, then get bored with it and get the next marker, also from tippmann and do the same thing. in reality you are spinning your wheels but not really going anywhere

starting out it is a bad idea to try and jump straight into milsim. i have seen a lot of players get out of the sport because after a while they feel like all the money they sunk into their first setup (that was milsim) was all for not and now in order to get anything that is actually better they basically have to start over. for this reason i have always said get into paintball first, then choose if you want to go with milsim with a second or third marker, but not a first setup

paintball is paintball, if you get a good first setup it wont matter where it is, it will be able to compete

I think were steering into the wrong direction here, its not just about getting my expensive marker wet, I NEED A MARKER THAT IS COMPATIBLE SHOOTING CO2 AND COMPRESSED AIR, my ego will not operate on co2 and I need one compatible with co2 also, that's the main reason for looking, just trying to gather some opinions on guns..

thanks

anything that works on CO2 will also work with HPA

ya i keep forgetting about the aura, while morkal has never said its ok to use with co2, theres nothing mechanically wrong with that. i would use a AS tube with it though

not stepping down to co2, I run hpa in my ego, but the closet place that fills hpa is an hour drive, so when we run out of hpa tanks and a scuba tank runs out I'm done playing, so I'm trying to get opinions on what marker would be the best bet for a good back up marker that's fast light and most like a ego I guess... I tried two new spyders both different models and both broke down right away, one right out of the package and the other after the first game.. wasn't vary happy..

i wouldt let that steer you away from them, that very odd and not typical of the brand

do you know what happened to them?

really a spyder or other STBB is going to be the closest to an ego as they still use a poppet valve. they are however going to be a low end marker, the aura however will be a mid range but is also a spool valve

yea, one of the markers had something bad inside (sharp, bad milling, offset) and it would blow out o-rings almost right away we tried 2 sets before returning (also blew the first ones out with the first shot), the other one wouldn't even fire out of the box, bad solenoid or valve, I didn't mess with them much for further explanations or details, just took them back and returned them... I started out with spyder markers many years ago and they were always my go to markers untill I started playing tourneys, I don't know if I just had a draw of bad luck or what...
