Are the rumors true that Brass Eagle only makes poor platicy-gun designs made for the budding beginner? I already have a modded-out gun that I love and I'm not thinking of getting a BE, just wondering.

Haha

rumors? buy one and see for yourself. they're certianyl not rumors that BS makes poor quality paintball markers.
Well you see- I don't like the idea of spending 10 bucks on a paintball marker I'm ever going to use, and from the looks of it it seems as if no serious paintballer is going to buy them. Again- I was just wondering.

Thanks for the info thumup:

yes and no
brass eagle use to make some of the best markers back in the day such as the nightmare, cobra and poison, some were also made of brass too, but in 2003 brass eagle was bought by k2 sports with changed there product line, marketing and target audience to noobs looking for low cost readily available markers that were easy to maintain. there last really decent markers were the raptor (F4 Illustrator clone) and rainmaker (electro-pneumatic badass similar to the vector) which i believe were both ended in 2000 and the afterburner and avenger both spyder clones but even these were still a little shoty.

k2 sports has since also acquired jt, viewloader and wgp since then and now has a 3 set up for paintball being brass eagle the bottom for lowend, then jt/viewloader as there midrange and wgp as there highend.

I just picked up a TigerShark and a Striker for $15 at a yard sale. Still haven't gotten to shoot either yet. But as for K2, they should have stuck with ski equiptment. Probably a tottaly different thread but their rollerblades are [email protected]!!! took 1 fall and busted an axle, break, AND 2 straps. Only out of the box for about an hour. But I cant wait to get a couple of tanks for the guns.
