I bought a high end electro, but only because I fell in love with the way it looked and felt. I knew absolutely nothing about it when I bought it, other than it was capable of shooting as fast as I can trigger it without chopping, and is very consistent and reliable.

Why do people rave over how their marker can shoot 35bps, shoot full auto, etc? When are you EVER going to shoot 35bps? Rules almost always call for semi, and PSP even changed the limit to 13.3bps from 15bps. I can walk 13.3 bps almost on semi. As long as the marker will shoot 16bps on semi, I'm happy. Half the youtube videos of people ripping on full auto, you can see soup flying out anyway.

Even if it were free, I wouldn't take an Ego 8, DM/PM 8, or anything else over my Dangerous Power IQ.

After reading this it really effected my decision on what marker to buy... and i ended up buying a Spyder MR1, two reasons... One, i found it online for 80 bucks... Two, i found it a better value for my money... that and when i started looking for a marker, i wanted a semi-auto marker, and for it to be durable... and so i found the MR1 and whent with it... thanks!

anyways im happy now since i ordered my SP1 and got my $150 discount on an SP8....lol (ordered my SP1 and they sent an SP8), lov how it looks and feels, nicely balanced and fairly light feeling.

Thank you so much for posting this. Recently I was actually about to buy an A-5, but then I went out with my kinda crappy US Army tippmann and I love the feel of that gun more than any other so I kept over high performance. Your article speaks the truth and everyone should read it.

Awesome to see someone stand up against the flow and take a stand on this issue. Honestly, I see lots of recommendations on this forum for markers that I have never even heard of. It amazes me how much people spend on markers. T-Freak gets my kudos for using a cheap piece of plastic to play. I've used a M98 for five years and only just got an aftermarket barrel.
The best marker is the one that gets you into the game. Think about two things. First, most players on here are young people. (Teens and such) Shouldn't they be saving for college or something? Second, you never buy a kid a brand-new car when he is learning to drive. Why? Chances are that he will crash it. Until he learns to drive, get him a heap that is safe and cheap. It may be ugly and go 0-60 in a decade, but it is the best way gain experience with the least risk. Same thing holds true in paintball. Get a marker that is relatively inexpensive, reliable, and easy to maintain. Once you have played, you will know what direction you want to go in the game, and some idea what kind of marker you need to do it.

my starter gun was a brass eagle after burner. Yeah I got laughed at but i love laughing when i pop some one with a $1000 gun right between the eyes. I still use my baby from time to time.

Markers that are easy to maintain are fantastic for new players. You get in the habbit of good maintence because it's not intimidating, and when you move on to a more complicated marker you keep those habbits. Also easy to maintain usualy coincides with cheap. :)
