i figured that it would be a good idea to list all the NEW equipment you have baught and have been uterly disapointed with, things that just didn't work like they where suppose to, where not worth te money, stuff like that

to start off, theese are the things i have baught and been disapointed with
. stackable pods, i can never get the darn things to go in my pack, and the end up takeing up more space
. tippmann 98custom, nothing wrong with the gun, just didn't quite feel right in my hands, kind of odd, keeps you pointing at the ground
.halo b v35 with rip drive, i got this used for around 50 bucks and it does ok, but doesnt fit cheaper feed tubes on various markers very well

and i know i will be adding more to this, feel free to join in with any paintball related gear, but do not use this as a way to flame companies without reason, you need to name specifics


if you have any sugestions feel free to mention them

as of march 1st
items with flaws(number is how many times it was mentioned)
spyder fasta loaders (1)
tippmann a5 and upgrades (6)
richochet laoders (1)
q laoders (1)
smart parts sp1 (1)
halo loaders (1)
empire reoader2 (2)
dye rotor (1)
flurry vest (1)
grenades (1)
smart parts shoebox shocker (1)

I have owned two Spyder Fasta loaders. One was a 9v and the other was an 18v, both LED. Both of them really worked great for a while, then they broke from just normal use. The 18v one worked well up until the feedneck part broke off inside my elbow. The 9v Fasta worked well for a while, then just kinda burnt out and died after being used for a couple of months.

You were disappointed with your A5 or you out-grew your A5?

The Ricochet loader for me. It was a good loader initially. After a few months I took a hard dive and the feedneck snapped.

Empire Reloader II. Paddles snapped off before I ever got a chance to use it on the field. Just a cheap P.O.S.

my A5...that cyclone was the most problematic thing i have ever seen in paintball...never thought something could fail so much and on such a consistent basis.

Halo TSA...loaned it to my friend..he broke a ball in the hopper...no biggie..open her and clean her. He tightens the screws just a bit too far, and snapped all the screw mounts off the inside of the hopper, so when we picked it up it just fell apart. Really cheap plastic. Wasn't happy. :blink:

PT Xtreme...first 12 gram i used on it blew the cupseal. Sent it back to 32 degrees...they replaced all internals...claimed to test it. I get her, pop in a fresh 12 gram...cup seal is blown again...WTB?!?!? I cocked it each time first before loading the 12 gram. Sent it back again to 32 degrees...they fixed her again...third times a charm right??? Wrong...still leaked like a sieve when i punctured the first 12 gram. Gave up and threw it in my gear bag. Sold her a few years later for cheap as i she never worked right...i felt bad selling her....then the guy that buys her says she works like a charm always. :shrug:

i have not really used my a5 too much. although one time i wanted to use it in a game and the cyclone broke.. stupid butt hole friend sold it to me that way..

prick..

but he dont play anyway.. hes living in gangter-wanabee paradise..

my flurry vest has to be one of the things i regret buying.. it was expensive at the time i got it, and the money i spent on that i could have gotten a SO vest long time ago.. i eventually upgraded my vest to a dagger, now i have a broadsword 9..

Empire Reloader II. After 8 months or so all the threads for the screws that hold the two halves together get brittle and strip out so the loader starts to split in half. Then the neck broke off. lol. I have two of them. Anybody want them for parts? I'll throw in a Revy that needs a lid too. Just pay shipping.

All the commercially made paint grenades I've ever bought. It's sad that homemade grenades that cost $1.00 to make, work better than grenades produced by large companies. lol. My homemade grenades rock.
