wrong category.

This is a good marker overall, but it is not fast. It is fairly accurate, but an aftermarket barrel would be better.

Sorry i thought it was in the correct category

when i saw the specs of the banshee it said that the stock barrel is 8.5 inch so not sure about accuracy. does speed count allot? because its all about hitting on the target right? is the marker very heavy and would it be a good marker for tournaments and so on?

The marker is a bit heavy. I'd say it's ok in woods, but don't expect to play in tournaments with it : you'll need something faster and lighter. In tournaments, everything is going fast, and that is an important aspect of the game.

In rec play and woods, no problem with this marker. As I said, a barrel is a nice addition.

Personnaly I'd go with a smart parts vibe, it's a better marker in every situation, and it can use Co2.

its a good starting marker, personally id go spyder over bt for a starting marker but they are so close i dont steer anyone away from the bt, in paintball accuracy is not dependant on how long the barrel is it matters how well the paint fits in the barrel, if you want an aftermarket barrel never gat anything beyond 16", after that you are loosing efficiancy due to friction on the ball while its in the barrel. 12"-16" is right where you want to be, look into the $30 J&J ceramic (awsome little barrel)

for rec ball the bt will gennerally do just fine, i say gennerally because the group i play with you will be a little behind in terms of marker preformance, but i know my group is a little advanced for gennerall rec ball play, it will shoot as fast as you can pull the trigger but i wouldnt expect to get anything beyond about 6 bps out of it

it will be very reliable as long as you keep it oiled (with paintball oil)

My question was what a modular trigger system is? And I decided to go with the bt banshee because i like the looks and stuff, and like trbo323 said it wil just do fine with rec ball and woodsball and that is what i want to do and btw i like heavy guns.I also want to get a red dot scope because some people says that you cant look through the sight with your mask on.

It's better than the BT

I'd also get the Azodin Blitz over the Electra
It has all standard parts, not metric, and is ready for all the most popular upgrades without needing any special parts

Ah oky sorry for all this questions another thing is I saw some videos of the electra and blitz what type of hopper can i use because i see everyone is using electronic hoppers and that is quite expensive can i use a normal standard cheap hopper?

Sure, you just won't be shooting fast

You can get an Invert Too or a Vl Eye-Force for around $50 and never have to worry about ever needing a new hopper

You can play tourneys with the RS

And they're not bullets, they're paintballs. Some people don't like the stigmatism of people shooting other people, and calling paintballs "bullets" makes things worse.

I'd save my money and get either a VL Eye-Force, Invert Too, or a used VLocity with an upgrade chip
