Get a tippmann, that's all you need for woods. If you wanna play both woods and speedball, get a spyder.

Naw, I suggest an older cocker for the woods. You get way better performance then a spyder, but it onyl costs about 1 or 200 more hten a spyder as opposed to 5 or 600. Find a 2000 autococker somewhere. You'll be happy. Just learn to take care of it, and make sure you get a god air system to go with it.

IF your cheap like me, get an 80 dollar piranha, upgrade it with a barrel, HPa/Foregrip+bottomline/Electro Trigger/Hopper. Then you can stand your own in the woods and in speedball.

If you're asking this question, you're probably not ready for a highend, so don't worry about it! lol.

Just stick with whatever feels best to you. I can scream Mag in your face all day, but that doesnt mean you should get a mag. Tinker with what you can get your hands on, and see what fits you the best. That's all i can tell you.

Totally can understand that.

There are so many high-ends out there, and a lot of them arenít that much of a step up in performance. I know people love their Timmyís, but a few experiences with people around that had them showed that they arenít the most reliable markers out there. Iíve shot them, I dislike them. Same with Cockers. They seem more trouble then theyíre worth. When I played with one I found nothing special about it, I actually prefer my Carbine to the cocker!

My love is definitely with Automags. Totally different feel then anything Iíve every used before. Not many like them though, but thatís fine by me. As long as you like the marker in your hands, and you feel extremely comfortable with it, thatís all that matters.

^^^An unreliable timmy? I've never had a problem with mine and I only go through the basic maintinance steps. I can understand not liking the feel, though.

i agree with headley about the cockers. I think there just to much trouble sometimes, and i would rather shoot alot of other guns. My frined has had tons of problems with his. ( he might just be 2 stupid to figure it out but still)

This is the route I went also. Piranhas are sick guns for the price, you can get an e-framed fish on xpaintball for 99. You can upgrade hopper and air then use those same ups when you upgrade the gun itself.

I got a Piranha EXT Pro 2k3 at www.xpaintball.com I added a SP All-American Barrel, on drop forward and a Halo TSA hopper. Not many 'cockers can outperform it.

Haha, Headley used "unreliable" and "timmy" in the same sentence.

i got a pirhana in the players pack (a GT), and all i upgraded was my barrel to a 12 inch. it works fine, gets done what i need it too.
in woods ball there's not really such thing a "low end" marker, other than some, and i stress some, pumps, and other really cheap semis, but just about everything else will work.

you have an 18" barell... cockers are far more upgradable, reliable, and all around awsome than fisheys. Mission hill is on or i would go furthar into point.

for <200 bucks which is what he spent on his fish, i'd go with the fish rather than a cocker that has seen some use

thats just me tho

i bought a used cocker for $250 and i did far better than when i had my 98c last month... but yeah, get what you feel comfortable with. i like mags as far as looks and performance goes, but i absolutely hate the feel. a 6'0" guy holding a midget ass gun... i bring down the cool factor of mags...


pirhannas are nice, im considering getting an e-pirhanna as a backup gun...

That actually is one of the best ideas I've heard in this thread, they work exactly like cockers and the electros go fast enough to compete with other guns around its price. Excellent idea, but you'd have to buy it used because WGP might have already gone on their asses.

Why should a woodsballer be stuck with an inferior performing product? No, recommend those to scenario ballers. Not woods. Those are all ok, but they are so overpriced for the performance.
