No no no, this is perfect. All the upgrades you put into can be transferred onto your next marker so spending extra now will save you in the long run.Thank you, I know a lot of people would disagree with me for some of my upgrades on a $150 gun but right now Im still learning how to care for and work on my marker.
Right now my only regret is getting all black.. although it works with my tactical theme, some days I wish I would have changed some colors.
I remember, you helped me out quite a bit. Looking back at some of the questions I was asking is almost comical now.Good to see you finally got around to getting your setup together - not sure if you remember, but we PM'd a few months back.
When are you coming up to Paintball Explosion in Dundee? My buddy and I are on an "Every-other" rotation schedule...and if our new marker purchases are in this weekend...I think we plan to play. If they aren't... I'll have to let you know. Usually Sunday between 10 and 5.
Your $150 marker performs the exact same function that a $1500 Matrix will do... sling paint at approx. 280fps to play a long distance game of tag. (thank you Miller...makes it a lot easier to explain what the game is when loading pods and ambushed by the parents of first timers). I've been shot out by an Ego. I've been shot out by a T98 Rental...and probably will continue to be shot out by T98 rentals until Tippmann goes belly-up.Infidel said:at the end of the day, no matter what I do to it, its still a $150 spyder that was purchased on a tight budget - which is why I got the CP barrel (sale) not to mention is works perfectly with the paint I use
They're not mistakes - they're ...non-cost effective methods of determining preferences in various aspects of the sport....yeah. We'll go with that. Should see the bottom of my tech bag...actually..you probably shouldn't...haha.Infidel said:Sure I made some mistakes along the way but Ive learned a lot for when Im ready for something better.
What? I made a mistake? OH NOES....no. its a spyder. can't transfer the barrel. not sure why the feedneck. i guess just for thumb lock convenience.
This I agree with, but the original statement that its a spyder barrel and wont transfer is just inaccurate.investing more money into a barrel adapter to make this one work - probably isn't the best of ideas, especially if you can get a new, nicer barrel for 25-50% more than your initial investment.
