Paintballing

I found this at http://forum.specialopspaintball.com/index.php?showtopic=58518 . I brought this to the Instructables community because some people don't seem to realize what paintball really is. Post you tips and questions and I will either add them to an Istructables or try to answer your questions. But if you click the link and read, you will probably won't have any questions.

Quote: "(Tippmanns) are not as legendary as people say though. If you take a Dye DM5, or Smart Parts Ion, or Shocker, it will perform just about the same. The speedball markers, however, are designed to shoot at incredible rates of fire(ROF)." I finally read the spec ops thing and this is what I see. For all of you who don't know, Tippmanns are completely different than almost all markers geared toward speedball and cannot be compared. Tippmanns operate using a blowback, open bolt design. This design has been flagged as being slightly less accurate and the tendency to have more kick/ barrel rise. It's true that speedball markers are designed to be faster, but also more accurate, lighter, and have better shot-to-shot consistency. Most do not take co2, but run on HPA.

I'm disappointed to see the lack of speedball support here.(And its kinda ironic because the picture is of a speedballer.) Spec. Ops is INDEED a marketing scam. For the most part, they can provide woodsballers with some good gear. But the other 40% of their merchandise is stupid. If you really want to learn about paintball, visit www.pbnation.com . This is a paintball forum that has everything from gear reviews to general information.
