appearance = 5/10 im not a fan of the colors you chose for camo and some of it is painted and other parts are not, just kinda seems a little mashed up to me

performance = 0/10, its heavier than stock and as far as i can tell nothing that is on it that actually helps performance

well thanks for your input! I can tell you play speedball

Fortunately for me the weight isn't an issues, paintballs a sport, its supposed to be a workout! It's a 9lb marker fully modded, 6.5lbs without any scopes.. your telling me that's heavy? ..... hhmmm

And nothing on it helps it performance? Wow you really need to look into the apex tip, its just for looks ya..and my long barrel doesn't do anything, nor does my scope zoom in or light up or help me spot and shoot enemies 200+ feet away. Not to mention my bi-pod doesn't actually work it's an optical illusion, you can't really support a paintball marker in a perfect steady hiddin position..

I give you a 1/10 for supporting your argument. 1 point for not liking my paint job because when i played my hands rubbed off the paint, sorry i didn't make this video sooner. I don't think it would have pleased u in any way tho!

I will also say that I think that if you used a darker/less glossy green, the camo would have come out better

Looks decent, but if you ever decide to try painting it again after a while when it get's beat up, try duracoat
Can be a bit pricey, but no baking needed (air cure is normal), and you don't even need an airbrush (Preval spray cans!)

Can also spray other people's gear with all the extra paint you have left over

i play paintball, doesnt matter where its at

yes, yes i am, in a sport where markers average about 4lbs you have created one that is over double that

And nothing on it helps it performance? Wow you really need to look into the apex tip,
i have, yes it changes the trajectory, but that doesnt make it better, just a different trajectory and a barrel that is heavier than the vast majority

its just for looks ya..and my long barrel doesn't do anything,
lol, a long barrel enthusiast, it doesnt, a paintball coming out of an 8" barrel traveling at 285fps will go the same distance from the tip as a paintball coming out of a 48" barrel at 285fps

nor does my scope zoom in or light up or help me spot and shoot enemies 200+ feet away.
LOL!, considering max range in paintball is largely considered 150ft, which by the way is no where near any distance you cant see with your naked eye, then yes you are right, the scope does nothing as do your lights, just like all the kids that want to put neons under a honda civic, they wont make a car go faster and do not help you shoot any further or more accurately

Not to mention my bi-pod doesn't actually work it's an optical illusion, you can't really support a paintball marker in a perfect steady hiddin position..

which you can also do without a bi pod and could do much more easily if your marker was not 9lbs in the first place

everything in the milsim world is looks driven, if you like the look sure, im not going to stop you, but if there is one thing it is not, its performance driven. this is not the military where yes, longer barrels give greater velocities in firearms and therefore longer ranges and accuracy, in paintball however, you have a marker, not a firearm, velocities are fixed by the field and you are shooting a liquid filled sphere that rolls through the air not a lead bullet that has a ballistic trajectory and can be rotationally stabilized through the use of rifling.

Just because it LOOKS like the real firearm does not mean it gains any of the same performance advantages, in fact if you really want performance, look at the military weaponry, and do the exact opposite

just a side note - if you can not handle criticism on your setup, you may not want to post it for people to rate

Looks decent, but if you ever decide to try painting it again after a while when it get's beat up, try duracoat

works great, i had a guy on here paint my hopper about a year ago, when it got back to me i hit it with a clear coat and since then its not scratched scuffed or anything. the duracoat sinks into the surface (of the plastic at least, not sure what it does on metal) so it bends with the plastic

Sorry the world doesn't revolve around you and what you are thinking or want to hear, if you want to know my life, feel free to come to London and write me a biography, if not grow up and stop getting so upset when i respond to your ignorant childish remarks.. i play milsim with a milsim marker, i play speedball with a speedball marker... giving me 5/10 and 0/10 is a joke. You have the right to your opinion, but don't blow up when i respond. If you're over 18, your an adult. grow up and act like one. Sitting here spitting away negativity, I would never invite you around.

What you've said doesn't support one thing, milsim and speedball are different, i think your tripping over your own feet here bud.
lol sauce, so let me get this straight, you post your marker up here wanting people's opinion on it, when someone comes on and gives their honest opinion about it you respond by slinging as much irony into it as you can and overall getting offended that someone has the audacity to tell you what they really think about your setup rather than just sing its praises, and lets be honest thats why you really posted it anyway otherwise you would not be so quick to dismiss everything i have said here.

then to top it all off try to argue that the milsim bits your bought for it magically give you an extra 50ft of range that nobody else gets in paintball, that everything you put on it makes it preform better just to justify the money you spent on it.

the REAL irony behind all this though is that you bought into what the manufacturers of all that milsim stuff told you that it would magically make your marker "better" without really looking into the physics behind paintball and assumed that because it works for the military, then it MUST work for paintball right?

again, milsim paintball is not in any way performance driven, it is looks driven, if you want performance, as much as i never want to join or care to watch professional speedball (which btw, came out of the woods) if there is one thing it is, it is performance driven. almost every performance advancement in paintball has come from speedball. e-triggers, eyes, anti-chop everything, forcefeeders, HPA, barrel kits, double triggers. all designed with performance in mind.

like i said i dont mind the way it looks, i think the paint could be better and AZN even agreed with me there but if you like it sure go for it its not like im saying dont shoot it. also, i always split my ratings on milsim markers because they are more looks driven and stock markers always get a 1/10 out of me, doesnt matter if its a 98 or DM12

I replied to your comment, it wasn't a rational comment..0/10.. and now you write this crazy long comment.. maybe you should proof read before you write instead of getting mad at the response you receive.

im actually amused at this whole thread not mad, i could care less what you go out onto the field with or if you choose to believe the manufacturers when they tell you all that stuff "helps" and lets be honest, this is not the first time you have taken someones comments as a personal attack. this seems to happen every time you are in a thread and the words "milsim" and "performance" are said

complain about the 0/10 all you want, it doesnt change that you took a 98 and made it even larger and heavier than stock

TRBO you just made me laugh so hard! You said NONE of my upgrades do anything, which is wrong, and you said the MAX distance of a paintball shot is 150ft! hahaha! I can throw a grenade that far.. My gun shoots 200-250ft... the more you talk the more you trip over your own feet. Give it up you all lose this argument and the others ones you've been harassing me and my posts about.

What are you talking about? He's crying because I replied, you have problems matrix stop trolling and harassing my posts. Behind your computer you talk like an ignorant person.

You wanna team up on me, come to London and see how cool and tough you are on the field. I'd destroy you with a paint grenade let a lone a marker. From the management of your thoughts and use of your brain, I no longer care about your 17 years of paintball experience, nor the trophies you might have on your wall.. You are just a low self-esteemed person who found my videos and are jealous and wont leave me alone.

None of your are individual random users, your are MODERATORS trolling and harassing my posts.
wow you just really want to fight with everyone dont you?

Martix is the only mod on this thread, and I think that while you can be angry at Trbo, the personal attacks should stop
Not very professional for you as a player that I think wants to get some recognition for what you've done

Also, you're on a public forum, not everyone is going to agree with you on everything, so asking people to leave you alone is a bit unrealistic.

Unless you're shooting at the same type of arc that you'd throw a grenade (~35-45* arc), you can easily throw a grenade further than a paintball will fly. Basic physics of the paintball is that they are about as bad as it gets as far as fluid dynamics are concerned. They're liquid filled spheres with an uneven seem. In space, they'll fly great, but in anything that presents drag, they suck about as bad as it's possible to suck.

Ok, so other than the apex being marginally considered a performance upgrade, there is no performance upgrades done to this marker as far as i know. The scope doesn't help the marker perform, it just helps you see. In my opinion, if you can't see the person with the naked eye (even if you can), its a bit beyond the range where you can reliably get a break on the person. [First Strikes a side].

I don't like the paint job, but that's just me.

I'm a woodsball player and I've played at Flagswipe and I don't like scopes or bipods either so now what? Let it go I mostly play pump and mech semi and I'm quite often the only one on the field with a pump or mech and I couldn't care less. If your setup works for you and nobody else likes it so what?

No but I've posted pictures of my SMGs, Blazer, Nova 700, Pug, Buzzard... I think most of my stuff. Usually in threads where a milsim GI Joe accuses us all of being speedballers that just don't understand how useful a 5000x scope and 20lb shroud can be. I live out in the sticks with a superslow connection so posting pictures is a pain in the ass for me.

See what I mean, "5000x scope & 20lb shroud" Complete nonsense, its a 3x9 scope and its not even a 7lb marker as an M4.

Half my gear and upgrades help, I would murk any of you with my 98 let alone a speedball gun! If I picked up a speedball gun, with 20+bps I would be a bigger threat on the field.

Crawdaddy, I dont care if you dont like scopes or bi-pods, thats your opinion you dont need to challenge me by saying "so now what?" I really dont know where that remark came from..

PS Thanks for removing my image... this forum is getting creepishly weird. Im getting personal attacks & messages from moderators and senior members..and you guys keep messing with my account.. All because i came here to share some content that i work hard to make, non of you have anything to show for yourself it seems, just constant trolling of my posts.
