I wouldn't get an X7. They're just an overpriced A5, which is just an overpriced 98C with a proprietary locked in hopper on the side that can't go on anything else.

Do you currently have anything?

it's interesting you mention those other markers, isnt't he x7 fairly expensive itself?

I think he was talking about the non-phenom (mechanical) X7, in which case I would avoid
If you're talking about the X7 Phenom, than it's a decent marker

But again, for that kind of money, you can get a very nice Spyder setup, or a decent mid-level electro

.......

the x7 mechanical and the phenom are 2 very different markers

i agree with azn on the spyder setup, you can spend half as much on a fenix and get a much better marker than the x7 mechanical

but before the marker i think you need to figure out what kind of a budget you have for a tank and mask if you dont have those already

It's not that the mechanical version is bad, it's just way overpriced for a fancy 98c
