So i have played paintball for a few weekends with some buds of mine and i am finally ready to purchase my first marker any advice? I have heard from several sources that tippmann 98 custom is the way to go because of many upgrades available.

I'm in England so it might be different here, but isn't that really expensive? Playing weekly?

tippmann is more suited for woodsball, its durable but its also big and bulky which is a disadvantage for indoors
think of it as entering a race with a coat and snow pants sure you could do it and you may even be faster than some other people, better you would do your best if you didn't wear such heavy stuff

are you playing in the woods, or just speed/indoor?

if you gonna play speedball The smarts parts ion, or epiphany are great electronic starter guns which could be modded inside out (there are body mods for the ion)

the epiphany also just had a price drop i believe its about 2 bills new

they're pretty good guns. the sight is really accurate, i shot a squirrel in the head with it out of my friends second story window. didn't kill it, but it was funny running around with a giant orange splatter on its head. I'm think about upgrading from my spyder xtra to one of these and getting an electronic trigger for it. does anyone know if the bps speed is pretty good for playing speedball?

Heres my advice DONT DO IT. i was really into it for awhile like everyone else and after going a few times i realized how much cash i was blowing on a stupid hobby. i was spending like 100 dollars a game and it wasnt worth it at all. personally i just dont have the cash flow to afford a hobby such as that.

ill be playing woodsball with a ghillie suit. have a bunch of redneck hunting friends that get bored during the off season and they play paintball so i would like to join with my own gun so i can my own modifications. i dont mind weight at all i reguarly lift weights so i dont think a 5-8 pound gun is gonna make a difference. i have heard that the flatline barrell and remote lines are almost a must is that true?i have money to blow and i have decent guitar equipment so i just wanted to join the sport.

Last time I played with some friends from college I got a headshot and it wasn't pleasant (even with the helmet on), I'm not going to play again....
I put a dollar in a change machine. Nothing changed.

i play big games every few months than small ones in between. (our team plays scenario) so we play 26 hour games (yes...26 hours) than small 8 hours when we cant afford those. my gun set up is over $1000. haha. and for a starter gun, depening on your prioce range, you can get a proto matrix rail, a cheap compressed air tank, and a force feeding hopper. and the ion beats out the tippman in upgrades (you can build a whole new gun from after market parts)

you should get a tippman. i got the 98 custom pro because it is camo and with a longer barrel. the flatline barrel increases how far you can shoot but if you play woodsball with short distances it isnt really a must but it would be a good thing to have. it is a exspensive sport but i only spend about 30$ a game for paintballs and CO2 because all my friends have fields at there houses and we all play. and dont buy the most expensive paint there is the fairly priced ones work as good as teh relly expensive stuff. you have to try around and see which paint works in you gun because it is different for every gun

yeah, if you have fields or woods to play in it's a lot cheaper. we have 3 wooded properties at my friends house that we play at because his neighbors do it.

Depends if you think you might get more into the sport later... If you are just going to go occasionaly, a tippmann would be fine. I have one (it was my first gun) and its a great low-maintenance gun. However, if you would probably be going often, i would lean towards a spyder, or even an ion, though you would have to get a decent hopper, and compressed air tank if you went with the ion. That would probably run you anywhere from 250-300 new or about 200 used.

If your gona play woodsball go with tipman.

If your going to play speedball go with something like Kingman Spyder.

I've got a Spyder Pilot Acs, and its a great gun but it chews through paint, and isn't the most reliable gun when your way back in the woods and your using cheap paint. I played a game last week and i was using really old paint and the last game we played my barrel got clogged with 5 balls and paint was pouring out of the ports on the barrel.

So yeah bottom line, if your going to use good paint and take careful care of it get an electronic gun like mine.

But if your going to put your gun through hell go with tipman.

I wish I played more paintball, I did once and it was a blast. Unfortunately, I don't have a gun and I'm allergic to getting shot at.
